Not So Expert Picks: Week Ten Edition
Hey sports fans, T-Bone, Bruce and Chris here with our picks for the NFL slate this weekend. We’re going to keep track of these for bragging rights, so we’ll keep you updated each week with who’s in the lead and who doesn’t know as much as they think they may.
Week nine saw a lot of great rookie performances most notably from Andrew Luck and Doug Martin. Can week ten live up to the hype, we’ll see? Chris won the week at 13-1, T-Bone was close going 11-3, followed by Bruce at 10-4. T-Bone has narrow lead for the season at 83-49, while Chris is only one game behind him at 82-50, Bruce is rounding out the pack at 77-55. So without further ado here are our week ten picks.
Thursday Night Game
Colts @ Jaguars: Andrew Luck’s two rushing touchdowns lead the Colts and us all to an early win for the week.
Broncos @ Panthers: John Fox brings Peyton Manning and friends into his old home, Bruce and T-Bone like the Panthers to make it two in a row. Chris doesn’t believe the hype and is taking the Broncos but will be very happy to be wrong about this one.
Giants @ Bengals: A Giants win here could be a huge step in taking the NFC East division however the Bengals have been known to trip up playoff teams. Chris and T-Bone are going with the Giants, while Bruce likes the Bengals.
Titans @ Dolphins: The Titans have been terrible and the Dolphins are a six point favorite at home, we all agree. Dolphins, sweep it.
Lions @ Vikings: This one could really go either way but with the Vikings struggling with some injury problems, that should be enough to get the Lions a W, and again we all agree.
Bills @ Patriots: The Pats are coming off a bye, all though they probably didn’t need the extra week to prepare for this one, we all like the Patriots by a mile.
Falcons @ Saints: The Falcons remain undefeated, and Bruce likes them to continue so. T-Bone and Chris are saying who dat, and taking the Saints.
Chargers @ Buccaneers: Don’t expect Doug Martin to put up 250 rushing yards again this week. The Chargers boast the fourth best rushing defense. With that being said the Chargers are inept on offense and the Bucs can score at will. We are all taking Tampa.
Raiders @ Ravens: The Raiders are down to their third and fourth running backs while the Ravens have a patchwork defense at this point. Expect a lot of throwing in this one but we are all on board with the Ravens.
Jets @ Seahawks: Bruce is holding true to form and taking the Jets again this week. This love affair with Tim Tebow and Bruce needs to be investigated more. T-Bone and Chris no better than to pick against the 12th man and they like the Seahawks.
Cowboys @ Eagles: Both of these teams have been disappointments this season but after watching, a questionable Saints team, keep Vick on his back for most of the game last week. The front four of the Cowboy should have a field day. Everybody is picking the Cowboys.
Rams @ 49ers: The 49ers are 3-1 at home and St. Louis is 0-3 on the road. No question here we are taking the Niners.
Sunday Night Game
Texans @ Bears: This will be a big test for both the teams here and a good barometer for them to see where they stand amongst the best of the best in the NFL. We are all taking the Bears but it will be close.
Monday Night Game
Chiefs @ Steelers: I never like to accuse teams of trying to lose but if the Chiefs are not then I would hate to see what is. Not even close here Steelers all around.
