NFL Week 10 Pick Results

Winning team in bold.

Unanimous Picks (9-2)


Cowboys @ Jaguars
Falcons @ Buccaneers
Chiefs @ Bills
Broncos @ Raiders
Titans @ Ravens
Giants @ Seahawks
Rams @ Cardinals
Bears @ Packers
Panthers @ Eagles


Browns @ Bengals
Another game where the Bengals' offense just disappeared. Andy Dalton had a miserable night passing, with three interceptions and a single-digit passer rating. The Browns weren't amazing, but it doesn't take much to win when your opponent is imploding like that.
Steelers @ Jets
The Steelers' offense goes back into hibernation. I'm not sure what else to say about this one, other than the fact the Steelers are now 1-4 when they don't score at least 30 points. The lone win in there came against the lowly Jaguars (and was a 1-point game until Blake Bortles threw a pick 6 in the 4th quarter).

Split Picks: (APR 1-1, SRS 1-1, Line 1-1)

Dolphins (APR, SRS) @ Lions (Line)
Maybe all there is to say about this game is that the Dolphins have a problem closing out close games. Last week's blow out win over the Chargers to the contrary, they don't have a dominating offense, and when they manage to establish a late lead, they really need their defense to get stops when it matters most. And so far, that really hasn't happened.
49ers (APR, SRS) @ Saints (Line)
A near thing for the Saints, and a good job of their defense holding the 49ers to 3 points in the second half. But they really need more than 24 points from their offense to win games, especially at home.
Meanwhile, the 49ers get a much needed win, in spite of some ongoing problems. They gave up 4 more sacks (as noted in last week's pick results, this is an ongoing problem for them). Another issue in evidence this week, they now have six games where they haven't scored more than 7 points in the second half. Including this game, they are 2-4 when that happens.


A nice round of picks for everybody this week.

APR 10- 3 82-45-164.5%
SRS 10- 3 80-47-162.9%
Line 10- 3 89-38-170.5%
