This may be the hardest week of games to predict. Week 10 begins in Glendale when the Cardinals host the Seahawks, and it includes Saints-Bills, Vikings-Redskins, Cowboys-Falcons, Patriots-Broncos, and Dolphins-Panthers. Let's get right at it this week!
My overall record last week: 9-4
Lock of the Week record: 7-2
My overall season record: 86-46
The Seahawks were waiting for a loss the way they were playing recently, but the Cardinals don't have enough firepower to expose Seattle's struggling defense.
Prediction: SEA 20, ARZ 15
For me, this is the best game of the week. The Saints haven't lost since Week 2, and the Bills are undefeated at home this season. It could go either way, but the Saints need to lose at some point.
Prediction: NO 22, BUF 27
The Bengals are a mess, and the Titans are surging. This is absolutely a must win game for Tennessee, and they're just more talented, so they should get the job done.
Prediction: CIN 13, TEN 23
It's an even week, so you know what that means! The cycle of wins and losses for the Jaguars continues this week. Also, the Chargers are coming off of their bye, so they'll be fresh.
Prediction: LAC 24, JAX 17
The Vikings are on upset alert this week. The Redskins are finding their rhythm at just the right time, and this was the point last year where the Vikings capitulated. So, I'm taking Minnesota.
Prediction: MIN 24, WSH 21
The Packers are done. Period. Don't @ me.
Prediction: GB 7, CHI 16
The Steelers are locked and loaded, and ready for the second half of the season. The Colts are one of the worst teams in the league, and the Steelers should take care of business.
Prediction: PIT 34, IND 17
The Jets are in the thick of the playoff race!? Yes, they are. And the revenge at stake, my goodness. Josh McCown versus his old team, and Ryan Fitzpatrick versus his old team!? Think of the storylines.
Prediction: NYJ 23, TB 27
This is my Lock of the Week. Period. And you know the Browns will play at least 3 quarterbacks in this game.
Prediction: CLE 10, DET 37
The Texans have one of the league's worst defenses, they can't stop anybody. The Rams don't look like they can be stopped right now. Do the math.
Prediction: HOU 19, LAR 36
I'm not sure the Giants are trying to win anymore. At least the Niners are trying. If the Giants lose, how can this not be the game that Ben MacAdoo loses his job?
Prediction: NYG 15, SF 17
This was the NFC Championship we all wanted to see last season. It is still a great game on paper, and a must win for the home team.
Prediction: DAL 24, ATL 26
Sorry Broncos fans, it's not 2015 anymore. There is no Brock Osweiler fairytale about how he triumphs over the Patriots this year.
Prediction: NE 28, DEN 9
The NFL schedule-makers can't get enough of the Dolphins. This is their third straight primetime game, and there's no reason to believe they can win in Carolina.
