I must say after a very impressive week 9 that saw me go 10-3 in my picks I feel even more confident going into the stretch run of the season as teams begin to jockey for position in the playoffs.

My overall record also now climbs to 66-45 which is where I like to see it, which is at least a 20 game cushion.

As always, feel free to follow me on Twitter @WooleyMammoth85 and let me know if my picks have helped or hurt you and who you would have picked and why if you disagree.

Week 10 NFL action (Minus Thursday Night’s game between the Colts and Jaguars)

Giants @ Bengals: After falling to the Steelers at home the Giants are out looking for blood while the Bengals are trying to cope with blowing their game against the Broncos. On paper this looks easy and the Giants should win—and I’ll go with that. New York takes it.

Dolphins vs. Titans: Last week we didn’t know who would get the start at QB and Ryan Tannehill did start and was impressive. I see this game being no different. Miami wins.

Bills @ Patriots: Remember last season when Buffalo actually beat New England and Bills fans everywhere we thinking it was their year? Well, if you’re a Bills fan, hold onto that memory. No chance in this one. New England wins.

Saints vs. Falcons: You have to give Atlanta credit. They have on weekly bases proved many people wrong for picking against them, myself included. This week however their run ends. New Orleans is on a roll and is at home which makes this a trap game for Atlanta.

Chargers @ Bucs: Don’t count Norv Turner and San Diego just yet. They also seem to put it together in November and December and sitting at 4-4, I’m willing to give them some wiggle room. Chargers win.

Panthers vs. Broncos: I said Carolina would fall to Washington last week and they pulled it out. No chance of that happening this week. Peyton Manning and the Broncos move to 6-3.

Raiders @ Ravens: Oakland was torched last week by Doug Martin on the ground and the Ravens love to use Ray Rice in many different situations. While I don’t see Rice racking up 250 yards on the ground, I could see him combine for 250 on the ground and in the air. Baltimore wins.

Seahawks vs. Jets: It’s hard to believe but Seattle actually is in a tie with Minnesota for the final wild card spot in the NFC while the Jets are already looking towards next season. With Seattle, it’s kind of hard to gage what kind of a team they want to be because of some of their losses, but I don’t see them struggling against New York. Seahawks win.

Cowboys @ Eagles: It seems that almost every week I give Philly the benefit of the doubt that they will turn the season around and get back into the NFC East race. Well after Monday Night, despite the loss, they proved they can move the ball but not score points. Because of that, I don’t think they’ll win too many games going forward. Cowboys win.

49ers vs. Rams: Both teams are coming off their bye week with rested legs but only one running back has shown up all season long and that has been Frank Gore. San Francisco should have no problem.

Texans @ Bears: This has the potential to be a Super Bowl preview as I feel these two are the best teams in the NFL. Stingy defenses, good offenses and they know how to tackle. This game could be very low scoring or turnover filled with how well each play on defense. Had this been earlier in the year, I would have said Houston—but I think Chicago is the team to beat here and going forward.

Steelers vs. Chiefs: Give Pittsburgh credit. They’re winning games despite the injury bug getting them at almost every position. Last week they rallied in the 4th quarter after trailing by 10 and I don’t see them trailing in this game—rather coasting. Steelers win.

Lions @ Vikings: The Lions had to win last week to push their record to 4-4 and they did just that. Now they have an opportunity to not only get over the .500 mark but position themselves back into the NFC wild card picture and despite the Metrodome being a house of horrors for the team over the years, they get it together and win this game. Part of the reason? Percy Harvin more than likely won’t play and if it wasn’t for Harvin’s 105 yard kick return and offensive output in week 4, they probably would have lost. Guess will find out if that is true. Lions win.
