NFL Predictions Week 10
It is a shame that players like DeShaun Watson, Aaron Rodgers, Odell Beckham Jr., and many more players have been hurt this season. The men will start to separate themselves from the boys. We are more than halfway through the regular season now.
I went 7-6 with my picks last week and my record is 80-52 on the year.
Seattle Seahawks 27 Arizona Cardinals 21: The Seahawks haven't been very impressive in the past few weeks. The Cardinals are a good team, but Drew Stanton will have his issues against a tough Seahawks defense. Arizona has the talent to make Russell Wilson uncomfortable, but Wilson will escape it.
New Orleans Saints 29 Buffalo Bills 17: The Saints might be going outside the dome, but they have the perfect formula to win in cold weather. Run the football with Alvin Kamara and play physical defense. I am sure the Buffalo Bills will do the same thing with LeSean McCoy, but the Saints will make the key plays when they need to.
Green Bay Packers 13 Chicago Bears 27: The Packers are lost without Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay's defense will make Mitchell Trubisky look like the second coming of John Elway. Chicago will also control the line of scrimmage.
Cleveland Browns 14 Detroit Lions 42: After a big win against the Packers, Matthew Stafford and the Lions need to dominate early and often against a horrendous Browns team. Cleveland has no identity at all.
Pittsburgh Steelers 35 Indianapolis Colts 14: This is a typical trap game for the Steelers especially coming off a bye. Jacoby Brissett has been playing well enough to keep the Colts in football games. At the end of the day, the Colts defense will be in star shock.
Los Angeles Chargers 17 Jacksonville Jaguars 20: Phillip Rivers and the Chargers will have a tough task going to the east coast off a bye week. Los Angeles needs to establish a running game early with Melvin Gordon. If the Chargers have second and third and long all game, Jacksonville will be waiting to sack the quarterback. Leonard Fournette will be back this week and the Chargers will have a tough time stopping him.
New York Jets 28 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14: Jameis Winston and Mike Evans will not be playing for the Buccaneers this week. It will hurt the Tampa Bay offense big time. The Jets look competitive and Josh McCown will scorch a horrendous Tampa Bay defense.
Cincinnati Bengals 14 Tennessee Titans 24: A.J. Green lost his cool last week against the Jaguars and he is lucky he didn't get suspended. Green will play good but Andy Dalton will harassed by the Titans front seven. The Titans offensive line will maul the Bengals front, especially Vontaze Burfict. Marcus Mariota will make plays as well when needed.
Minnesota Vikings 24 Washington Redskins 20: Case Keenum will be inspired to play good football because of Teddy Bridgewater being the Vikings backup this week. The Vikings will continue to establish the run. Josh Norman on Stefon Diggs and Bashaud Breeland on Adam Thielen will be an interesting match up. Also does a physical Redskins team show up or does an uninspired team show up?
Houston Texans 13 Los Angeles Rams 50: It is clear that the Texans offense isn't the same without DeShaun Watson. The Rams defense will tee off of Tom Savage early and often. Jared Goff and Todd Gurley will continue to run the show on offense for the Rams. It wouldn't surprise me if Los Angeles scores 50 points for the second consecutive week.
Dallas Cowboys 27 Atlanta Falcons 22: The Dallas Cowboys are playing inspired football and the Atlanta Falcons are not. The Cowboys defensive line will make the Falcons offensive line look like midgets. Whether Ezekiel Elliott plays or not, the Cowboys offense will march down the field on a suspect Falcons defense.
New York Giants 16 San Francisco 49ers 13: Whether the Giants quit on Ben McAdoo or not last week remains to be seen. If they get embarrassed to a horrible 49ers team, then they have quit. The loser of this game will most likely get the number two pick in the NFL Draft.
New England Patriots 17 Denver Broncos 23: The Patriots are usually good off a bye week, but Denver is a place that hasn't been kind to Tom Brady in his career. The Broncos have their backs against the wall and I expect them to respond.
Miami Dolphins 14 Carolina Panthers 21: Neither offense has been playing spectacular, but the Panthers offense can bust off more big plays than the Dolphins can. Cam Newton and Jay Cutler will both play well. Which defense will make a key stop when they need to.
Byes: Baltimore Ravens, Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, and Philadelphia Eagles.
