NFL Picks: Week 10

E-mail Print PDF

Just some quick hits on the NFL season:

1. There is no real dominant team (BUT YOU KNEW THAT).
2. Madden and Michaels are good to listen to (TOO BAD THE GAMES HAVE BEEN AWFUL!!).
3. That "Any Given Sunday" stuff really hurts when trying to pick games.

BRISTOL, CONN---Just some quick hits on the NFL season:

1. There is no real dominant team (BUT YOU KNEW THAT).
2. Madden and Michaels are good to listen to (TOO BAD THE GAMES HAVE BEEN AWFUL!!).
3. That "Any Given Sunday" stuff really hurts when trying to pick games.

We were able to maintain some dignity this week and stay above water in the picks. However, certain teams (Chargers, Texans, etc.) just refuse to cooperate. BUt enough whining, on to week 10.

LAST WEEK: 8-6 (64-52 on the year)

SUNDAY

FALCONS at STEELERS (Pittsburgh favored by 5)

Back in 1992, then-Broncos head coach Dan Reeves made Tommy Maddox his first-round pick. Maddox, the 25th pick overall, had barely played a full season at UCLA and was way in over his head with Denver. He would eventually drift out of the league completely in 1995. Fast forward to 2001.
Now with the No. 1 pick overall, Reeves chooses Michael Vick for his Falcons. Now, the two QBs with similar but different backrounds meet Sunday at Heinz Field. Both have lead their respective teams in different ways. The winner? The team with the better defense.

Pick: Pittsburgh 24, Atlanta 13.

CHIEFS at 49ERS (San Francisco by 6)

An interesting battle between two of the league's most entertaining offenses. Both are coming off big wins over the reeling Raiders. The Niners sent Oakland further on their slide with an overtime victory at the Black Hole last week. K.C. knocked off Da Raidahs a week earlier at Arrowhead. Despite seeing the Rams in their rearview mirror, San Fran has started to take control in the West. This could be one of those trap games for the Niners as they head down the stretch.

Pick: Kansas City 28, San Francisco 21.

DOLPHINS at JETS (New York by 3)

No Jay Fiedler. Now, no Ray Lucas. Now the fate of Miami's world is on the shoulders of Sage Rosenfeld. (YIKES!!) Sadly for Dolfans, the late season collapse has started early. And now they face on of their bitter rivals in New York.
Miami easily handled the Jets back in Week 3, but that was with a healthy Fiedler and Ricky Williams was hitting his stride. Since that game, the Jets have changed QBs and Chad Pennington has performed well. Herm Edwards is still holding out hope for a playoff berth, between shouts. New York will need this to keep it going

Pick: New York 17, Miami 7.

MONDAY

RAIDERS at BRONCOS (Denver by 5)

The 500th edition of Monday Night Football offeres up a huge AFC West battle. The Broncos have bounced back nicely from that epic battle against Miami, while Oakland is still free falling after a terrific 4-0 start. Needless to say, but it's a must win for the desperate Raidahs. Another loss and it could cost Oakland their postseason lives. Which team shows up?

Pick: Denver 24, Oakland 14

OTHER PICKS:

Eagles over Colts: Philly overcame it's expected letdown last week. But they should have an easy time with Indy.

Lions over Packers: Detroit played Green Bay close earlier this season. Plus Brett Favre has a bad history in domed stadiums. Just a hunch.

Giants over Vikings: See what happens when the Giants' offense shows up?

Titans over Texans: I'll take Steve McNair over Bob McNair in this matchup.

Chargers over Rams: Again just a hunch. San Diego will be still peeved over the Jets loss.

Patriots over Bears: Whoever took the Bears' offense, could you please bring it back?

Cardinals over Seahawks: Only watch this game if you have to. If not, rent a movie.

Ravens over Bengals: LeBeau's guarantee only lasts for one week.

Saints over Panthers: Rodney Peete returns for Carolina. Good, now they'll score at least one TD.

Jaguars over Redskins: Only because someone must win.
