NFL Week 10 Preview



It's round 10 of the NFL season, everyone has played at least half their games and it's time to see how the NFL fares in the post Trump world. If his AFL ownership is anything to go by.......badly. Last week we went 9-4 taking our overall record to 81-50. On with the show.

Cleveland (0-9) @ Baltimore (4-4) The Ravens surprisingly easy win over Pittsburgh ended their 4 game losing streak and lifted them to the top of the division, but with just half a game between the top 3 it's no time to ease up. The Browns remain hapless, hopeless and winless. In a year of falling ratings, this is unlikely to help the Thursday night crowd. Pick: Ravens

Green Bay (4-4) @ Tennessee (4-5) 8 weeks in and we're no closer to knowing who these Packers are. 2 straight losses have them .500, 1 game out in the NFC North. The Titans are an improving side, with a top notch running game and a QB in Marcus Mariotta who just gets it done in the red zone. This will be tight but.... Pick: Tennessee

Denver (6-3) @ New Orleans (4-4) The Broncos lost to the Raiders last time out and they come up against a similar if less gifted opponent here. The Saints are all offense, and will put up points, even if Defense is the Bronco strength. On the other side of the ball, Denver are scrappy but effective. If the Saints can somehow make a stop or two they have a shot Pick: New Orleans

LA Rams (4-5) @ NY Jets (3-6) This is a match up of two of the premier defensive lines in the league. As well as two of the least effective QBs. Jets are at home and should have a slight edge in the offensive skill positions. It ought to be enough to send the Rams to a 5th consecutive defeat Pick: NY Jets

Atlanta (6-3) @ Philadelphia (4-4) The Falcons might be the most over rated under rated team in the league while somehow, the Eagles are 3 games behind Dallas at the foot of the NFC East. They gave themselves too much to do last week as the Wentz magic faded a little. Falcons should be too strong Pick: Atlanta

Chicago (2-6) @ Tampa Bay (3-5) The Bears arrested their slide last time out, whether that's the green shoots of recovery or not will be tested here by the schizophrenic Bucs. They have a 100% record of futility at RayJay, something they'll need to end soon if playoff are to remain on the agenda. Pick: Tampa Bay

Minnesota (5-3) @ Washington (4-3-1) The Vikings are the new Falcons. 5-0 to 5-3 and unable to hold on against the Lions last week, a trip to resurgent Washington is the last thing they need. It's going to be a blanket finish for Wild Card slots to so every win will be crucial Pick: Washington

Kansas City (6-2) @ Carolina (3-5) The Chiefs, winners of 4 in a row, head to Carolina, winners of their last 2, looking to get over their recent QB controversy. Smith or Foles will find a Panther welcome more akin to last season than the ealy parts of this season. If Cam Newton can forget about refs non calls long enough, they live to fight on. Pick: Carolina

Houston (5-3) @ Jacksonville (2-6) The Jaguars are one of the disappointments of the season, and it's not likely to get better under the current regime, while the Texans are where they are despite their QB play. Houston have not won on the road, while the Jags only home win came at Wembley. Pick: Jacksonville
