NFL Picks Week 10: Predictions For Every Game
Happy Veterans' Day everyone, and thank you to all those who serve and served in the military and keep our freedoms free.
Today is also the first Thursday night game of the year and Ray Lewis isn't too happy about it. But oh well, we the fans are. Man up Ray, other sports play multiple times a week.
With the pleasantries out of the way, lets get on to the picks this week.
BAL @ ATL
Speaking of Ray Lewis, his Ravens travel to Atlanta to take on the surprising Falcons.
As good as the Falcons have looked this season, their biggest test came against a good defensive team in the Steelers, and they lost.
They take on an equally good Ravens team and the Ravens D will do enough.
Ravens win 17-13.
TEN @ MIA
Randy Moss debuts as a Titan and Chad Henne gets benched in Miami.
So do these moves change the outcome out this game?
Either way, the Dolphins were going to lose this game.
Titans win 24-20.
MIN @ CHI
Favre lead a nice comeback against a bad Cardinals team.
Now he plays an even worse Bears team that almost dropped one to the winless Bills.
Favre keeps the Vikings season alive for one more week.
Vikes win 28-10.
DET @ BUF
Is this the week the Bills finally break through with a win?
Detroit wins 24-10.
CAR @ TB
The Panthers are terrible.
Bucs win 31-9.
HOU @ JAC
Gary Kubiak could be the next coach on the hot seat.
The Texans had playoff aspirations at the start of the season and after a Week One win over their rival Colts, they had division aspirations.
Well they've kind of gone into a free fall here, but will play the bad Jaguars.
Texans win 35-17.
NYJ @ CLE
Peyton Hillis is a monster, and the Browns shocked the world last week by beating the Patriots.
Can they do it again?
Yes they can, Browns win 20-17.
CIN @ INDY
This might be the week that Batman and Robin finally have a split.
The Bengals are terrible and even a banged-up Colts team will easily beat them.
Colts win 34-10.
KC @ DEN
KC had a heart-breaker last week and Denver is just terrible.
The Chiefs bounce back and beat Denver, 21-17.
DAL @ NYG
The Cowboys quit on Wade Phillips last week and he got fired. Now they have Jason Garrett.
They could do two things, either play their heart out for their new coach or just quit on the season.
Last week told me the Cowboys are a bunch of spineless quitters.
And to top it off they get the Giants again.
G-Men win 56-6.
SEA @ ARI
An epic battle for the NFC West. You can throw stats and records out the window for this one. This is a rivalry to end all rivalries.
Not really, but Fox paid me a butt load of money to try and hype this game so it doesn't get beaten in the ratings by Antiques Road Show.
I guess I have to pick a winner, so Seahawks win 17-13.
STL @ SF
Another gladiatorial battle in the NFC West.
Honestly it's kind of hard to pick this one, Troy Smith has breathed some life into the 49ers, but St. Louis is a decent team.
I'm going with Sam Bradford here.
Rams win 20-10.
NE @ PIT
A possible AFC Championship matchup preview right here.
A tough defense vs. an explosive offense.
The Pats got upset by the amazing Peyton Hillis and Colt McCoy, but the Steelers have a suspect secondary.
Honestly, the pick comes down to home field advantage. So Jeff Reed kicks a game-winner.
17-14, Steelers win.
PHI @ WAS
The terrible bye week for the Redskins is over and the Eagles have come off a big win against the beat-up Colts.
McNabb not only has leftover detractors in Philly but he has them in D.C. now too.
On the biggest stage of the week, McNabb is going to silence his critics, including his head coach and offensive coordinator.
Redskins win 24-20.
That's All Folks
Enjoy football tonight, and once again happy Veterans' Day!
