Going into week 10 of the NFL season, 31 teams have at least one win. The Indianapolis Colts are the lone outfit looking to get its first mark in the win column. As mentioned earlier in the season, they’ve been competitive in some games. In others, not so much. In their last three games, the point differential between them and their opponents have been 32 points an outing. Will the Colts going an exclusive fraternity of 0-16 teams? Let’s find out:
Raiders over Chargers- What was once an issue for San Diego in the first quarter of the season has transcended into the second quarter. The Bolts are on a three game losing streak and given how the entire division is only separated by one game, Oakland could steal one on the road.
Saints over Falcons- The N.O. totes the best all around offense in the league. Atlanta can score with the best of them, but defensive containment will prove to be an issue for the dirty birds.
Panthers over Titans- Until Chris Johnson gets back to his former self, difficulty is presented when it comes to picking Tennessee’s offense to outlast anyone.
Browns over Rams- I’m going with the teams that has the most promise in its current state.
Cowboys over Bills- It would behoove Dallas to keep the ball in DeMarco Murray’s hands, given what he’s done against lower tiered rush defenses thus far. Buffalo’s rush defense also resides in the bottom half of the league, to the rookie from Oklahoma should have another productive outing.
Dolphins over Redskins- As of late, Miami has played with a certain brand of grit where it refuses to lay down like a guppy out of its fish bowl. Washington, however, appears to deflate as the season progresses. Has Mike Shanahan’s arrogance caught up with him?
Eagles over Cardinals- LeSean “Shady” McCoy…and that’s all I have to say about that.
Ravens over Seahawks- Coming off a sweep of its most bitter rival, Baltimore shouldn’t have much trouble with Seattle.
Broncos over Chiefs– My Inny Minny Miney Moe game of the week.
Bears over Lions- Detroit’s running game is in a place of uncertainty while Matt Forte continues to prove he’s worthy or a hefty, long-term contract.
49ers over Giants- If Ahmad Bradshaw was available, I’d feel differently about this one.
Packers over Vikings- This could be the most lopsided game of the week.
Last week, I went 8-5, but I’m still trending keeping my head above water for the most part. We’re back at it next week. Until then, enjoy the games.
