NFL Picks: Week 10

After a horrid Week 8, my Week 9 hovered at about .500, which is fine because I banked quite a few wins at the beginning of the season. I feel pretty good about today's picks, but of course I had to get my normal Thursday night loss:
I don't want to talk about that game. I'm upset, I'm hurt, I'm angry.

Let's move on before I start crying.

UPSET ALERT next to games in which I think the underdog will win outright, not just cover. Home team in CAPS.

PACKERS (-10.5) over Lions. The Pack are back at home after two road losses, and I feel terrible for the Lions. It's going to get real ugly, real fast.

BUCCANEERS (Pick'Em) over Cowboys. I'm now convinced that the Cowboys are simply incapable of winning a game without Tony Romo.

Panthers (-5) over TITANS. I refuse to accept that Carolina's first loss of the season will come to the Titans, even on the road.

Bears (+7) over RAMS. I actually like the Bears a bit, I think they're a little frisky. I do think the Rams are clearly better, but I'm just worried that they won't be able to put up enough points to truly separate themselves in this contest.


Dolphins (+6) over EAGLES. Still not sure what to make of either team, so give me them points.

Browns (+5.5) over STEELERS. I can't lay 5.5 points with Landry Jones. That would be dumb.

Jaguars (+5.5) over RAVENS. I can't lay 5.5 points with the 2015 Ravens. That would be dumb.

RAIDERS (-2.5) over Vikings. It's going to take a while for me to get used to this thing where the Raiders are good, but the Raiders are good.

GIANTS (+7.5) over Patriots. The Pats are laying quite a few points on the road, so I have to go with the G-Men here, but there will be no Super Bowl repeat today because the Pats are winning.

BRONCOS (-4.5) over Chiefs. The line is surprisingly low here. I understand that the Broncos lost last week to a not-great Colts team, but the pessimism went too far.

SEAHAWKS (-3) over Cardinals. I'm very excited for this game, and even though the Cardinals are the better team this year, the 12th Man should propel Seattle to victory.

BENGALS (-12.5) over Texans. Great team against a terrible team, giving fewer than two touchdowns, gimme dat.

Last Week: 7-6

This Week: 0-1

Season: 66-60-5
