The leftover jack-o-lanterns from Halloween were not the only orange ovals around last week, as our “picking winners” carriage turned right back into a pumpkin.
This season is still looking good overall, but to get back on track we’re going back to rapid-fire picks this week.
Week 9 = 5-8
Season-to-Date = 69-55-2
Week 10 of the 2021 NFL Season
Atlanta Falcons @ Dallas Cowboys (-9)
I have given up trying to pick Falcons games. So, I will keep picking the Falcons until they stop covering.
The Pick = Atlanta
New Orleans Saints @ Tennessee Titans (-2.5)
Titans can’t keep losing key offensive players and winning football games.
The Pick = New Orleans
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Indianapolis Colts (-10.5)
Jaguars celebrated their win of the season last week. Now it’s back to going for the #1 pick again.
The Pick = Indianapolis
Cleveland Browns @ New England Patriots (-1.5)
Belichick. Beats. Browns/Baker.
The Pick = New England
Buffalo Bills @ New York Jets (+12)
The Bills offense wakes up, as they beat up on the division rival.
The Pick = Buffalo
Detroit Lions @ Pittsburgh Steelers (-8.5)
The Lions are going to be happier to see Rudolph than Santa on Christmas Eve!
The Pick = Detroit
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Washington Football Team (+9.5)
I like WFT avenging their playoff loss or at least coming close to that.
The Pick = Football Team
Carolina Panthers @ Arizona Cardinals (-10.5)
Is “6.0” the IMDB rating for “Superman Returns” or the best yards per completion stat the Panthers can hope for from their new/returning QB Cam Newton?
The Pick = Arizona
Minnesota Vikings @ Los Angeles Chargers (-2.5)
Call the Vikings “the New England Foliage” because their season is about to be over.
The pick = Los Angeles
Philadelphia Eagles @ Denver Broncos (-3)
I’m winless picking games when coaches miss the game. Time to zag.
The Pick = Denver
Seattle Seahawks @ Green Bay Packers (-3.5)
I refuse to give either quarterback the satisfaction.
The Pick = Green Bay
Kansas City Chiefs @ Las Vegas Raiders (+2.5)
I wish I could pick neither team. I’m back on picking against the Chiefs until they cover a game.
The Pick = Las Vegas
Los Angeles Rams @ San Francisco 49ers (+4)
Adding OBJ and Von Miller is going to be great for the Rams long-term, but a transition period, in the beginning, should be expected.
The Pick = San Francisco
And that’s how you get back on a winning streak.
