Week 10 already and the playoff race looks more open this year than it has in the past. Green Bay are the only 100% team and we expect that to continue against the Vikings, despite Minnesota being a better team than their record indicates. The Eagles have had a very disappointing 1st half to the season and they will face ex QB Kevin Cobb on Sunday when the Cardinals pay them a visit. Another loss could effectively end Philadelphia’s season and probably cost Andy Reid his job, however we don’t expect that this week.
This could also be the week when the Colts finally put up a win as they host the Jags, and much as we hate to say it – if they lose this one then a 0-16 season is a real possibility.
The two big games of the weekend both involve NY teams, as the Giants take on the 7-1 49ers in the battel for a top seeding, while the Jets entertain New England in a match which will go a long way towards deciding who gets the AFC East crown this season.
We also have the Thursday games starting this week where the locked up AFC West will have at least one team over .500 as they all play each other.
There’s our predictions:
THURSDAY, NOV 10th
Oakland at San Diego – Chargers
SUNDAY, NOV 13th
Arizona at Philadelphia – Eagles
Tennessee at Carolina – Panthers
Houston at Tampa Bay – Buccs
Washington at Miami – Dolphins
Jacksonville at Indianapolis – Colts
Denver at Kansas City – Chiefs
Buffalo at Dallas – Cowboys
New Orleans at Atlanta – Saints
St. Louis at Cleveland – Rams
Pittsburgh at Cincinnati – Steelers
Baltimore at Seattle – Ravens
NY Giants at San Francisco – Giants
Detroit at Chicago – Bears
New England at NY Jets – Jets
MON, NOV 14
Minnesota at Green Bay – Packers
