Week 10 NFL Predictions

Can The Colts Or Saints Finally Lose? Well... Maybe One Of Them Can. [Week 10 NFL Predictions]

11/12/09 in NFL   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

The games start early tonight, with the 49ers and Bears squaring off tonight on the NFL Network. Here are this week's NFL predictions. Post your own in the comments section.

Thursday Night, 8:20 pm

Bears at 49ers
FaniQ consensus: Bears 22, 49ers 21
My pick: 49ers 23, Bears 20
-Both of these teams have been pretty tough to figure out. They've each shown flashes of excellence, but have been painful to watch on occasion. I'm going to lean towards the 49ers, but only because they're at home.


Sunday, 1:00 pm

Bills at Titans
FanIQ consensus: Titans 21, Bills 18
My pick: Titans 17, Bills 10
-The Titans are on the rebound. I don't think they'll win out, like Chris Johnson seems to think. But they should be able to beat a pretty terrible Bills team.

Lions at Vikings
FanIQ consensus: Vikings 32, Lions 14
My pick: Vikings 35, Lions 10
-The Vikings will absolutely abuse the Lions this week, bringing back memories of Detroit's 2008 failures.

Jaguars at Jets
FanIQ consensus: Jets 22, Jaguars 18
My pick: Jets 20, Jaguars 17
-These are a couple teams who are deficient in overall talent, but have a chance to make playoff runs if they play their cards right. I'm guessing the Jets are the ones who will.

Falcons at Panthers
FanIQ consensus: Falcons 25, Panthers 19
My pick: Falcons 30, Panthers 20
-The Panthers are still a terrible football team. That is all.

Buccaneers at Dolphins
FanIQ consensus: Dolphins 25, Buccaneers 15
My pick: Dolphins 23, Buccaneers 13
-The Bucs were able to exploit the Packers' atrocious O-Line to pick up a win, but they won't be so fortunate against the Dolphins, who are doing things right and building from the trenches.

Bengals at Steelers
FanIQ consensus: Steelers 25, Bengals 20
My pick: Bengals 24, Steelers 23
-Anyone who still doesn't think the Bengals are for real is only fooling themselves.

Broncos at Redskins
FanIQ consensus: Broncos 27, Redskins 15
My pick: Broncos 30, Redskins 13
-The Broncos are ready to take out their frustrations, after two straight losses to AFC North powers.

Saints at Rams
FanIQ consensus: Saints 33, Rams 14
My pick: Saints 45, Rams 13
-The Rams might pick up a few points late in the game when the Saints stop caring, but all in all, this one could get ugly.


Sunday, 4:00 pm

Chiefs at Raiders
FanIQ consensus: Raiders 19, Chiefs 16
My pick: Chiefs 20, Raiders 15
-The Chiefs offense got a nice boost last week with Chris Chambers. That should be more than enough to beat a team with JaMarcus Russell under center.

Eagles at Chargers
FanIQ consensus: Eagles 24, Chargers 22
My pick: Chargers 33, Eagles 27
-I think this will be a nicely offensive struggle, but the Chargers are playing well enough right now that they can beat a pretty solid Eagles team.

Seahawks at Cardinals
FanIQ consensus: Cardinals 27, Seahawks 17
My pick: Cardinals 35, Seahawks 17
-This is where the Cardinals stick a fork in the Seahawks.

Cowboys at Packers
FanIQ consensus: Cowboys 26, Packers 20
My pick: Cowboys 23, Packers 20
-Just another week for the Packers. Aaron Rodgers will get beat into the ground, and they'll fall short again.


Sunday Night Football

Patriots at Colts
FanIQ consensus: Colts 27, Patriots 24
My pick: Patriots 27, Colts 21
-The Colts' secondary is absolutely decimated right now. It will cost them.


Monday Night Football

Ravens at Browns
FanIQ consensus: Ravens 27, Browns 13
My pick: Ravens 38, Browns 12
-There's nothing like a game against the Browns to get the offense back to full speed.

 I don't care if the Packers win or lose today. I'm just hoping that Aaron Rodgers doesn't get murdered by DeMarcus Ware!

The colts may have a hard time with the pats today, but I think they'll pull it out in the end. But when it comes to the Steelers vs Bengals, I just don't see how the Bengals have a chance to win. The Steelers have pulled it together since their terrible start to the season.

11/15/09   |   mrtriplesix   |   1160 respect

colts are going down very soon....... o wait they play the pats this weekend. looks like they will be going down sooner than i thought. my new favorite rivalry :)

I think this may be true. It's going to be who disguises their weaknesses more, the Colts have their injury-riddled secondary and the Pats have some holes in their Oline. I'd think the Pats have been the one team that's gotten away with average Oline players over the last few years, so I'm leaning toward them being able to make it through. It could turn into a real shootout and I can't wait!

I think this may be the regular season game of the year, a note of caution, both Jacob Lacey and Jarraud Powers are better than most people know, however it may only take 2-3 rookie mistakes.  The runner-up game: Steelers versus Bengals should be epic as well.  We will see just which of these teams possesses the coaching staff that can best create and exploit weaknesses in the other team.

There is so much wrong with this comment. So much.

How to beat the colts "d"sence we know that the ends are a very good rushing pair.Freeney does the spin move this is ok freeney lines up on the out side of the tackles left shoulder and his goal is to meet five yards in the back field a straight line.That is if the proper defense is called   were the out side linebacker is a backup.other wise freeneys job is containment which is no body gets outside there is no out side help his job is to turn the play in side.I f you are lined up on the in side shoulder of the tackleyou are not going to be containment why the tackle will push you in to the center he full back kicks the line backer out there is a hole safety makes the tackle 5 yards made..Freeney on the spin out side you push him out side the pocket past the play the offense tacket blocks the defense tackle by .putting his head across  the defense man body which will make a holeso the running back will hit to make the safety to make the stop.The out side backer on the tide end  the middle backer is blocked from the tackle on tackle .I will take my chances with my backs that they will break a long one .Besides 3 yards per carry untill you stop the run.... If you can put pressure on Brady that is great!!! Throw all the records out door no stats  are going to do any body any good when the ball is kicked off the game is win or lose on the field 60 minutes of football.....

Once again... your defense has had several huge injuries. And for the record, the Patriots have allowed the 2nd fewest points. The Colts aren't the only good team in the league, and the injury issues are real. It's foolish to pretend that these things won't make a difference.

Hayden is the only player we will miss (and he's only played in like 2 games this season), the Pats are missing Koppen and Light (Freeney and Mathis lol) so whats your points, you will see this weekend that Powers and Lacey are the real thing.

The only way the colts will win this week will be to score first and score offten .A shoot out a high scoring game!!!

Unless you consider 2006 to be "lately", I'm not sure where you're getting your information. The Colts have only beaten the Patriots 4 times total (out of 11 games) in the Tom Brady era. 2 of them were in 2006, and one was last year without Brady. But hey... whatever helps you sleep at night. Just don't look at your defense right now... it will give you nightmares.

Once again you over estimate the Browns. Sure 12 points may seem low, but in reality you're expecting 4 field goals. Yes, we all know they won't score touchdowns, but 4 field goals implies 4 scoring drives.
Do you really think they'll move the ball enough 4 times to score points?
They'll probably score 6 points, off 2 field goals, both set up by long returns by Cribbs.
Gosh, it's fun to root for the Browns.

The Colts secondary has not had to cover double moves and deep threats which could be a problem for the rookie corners because the Colts Def front (primarily Freeney and Mathis) have been wreaking havoc in the face of opposing QB's almost immediately after the ball is snapped. The inexperienced Colts secondary has played good enough coverage in the 2-3 seconds the opposing QB has to unload the ball that it has not been a glaring deficiency. I DO NOT see that changin this week. The Pats O-Line is average at best and will have their hands full trying to protect Tom Terrific. I look for alot of screen passes out of nothing more than desperation by the Pats and not so much the Moss deep threat that would greatly be in the Pats mismatch favor. The key to the game will be the Colt LB's, not the CB's and Safety. Look for Clint Sessions to have a big game and limit the yards after catch and runs up the middle on the Pats go to plays Sunday.... the Screen Pass & Draws.
btw Pat.... Brady better have his head on swivel or this may be the last you see of Tommy Boy for a few weeks.

Unfortunately it's going to be another week and another Redskins loss.

I also don't think the Bengals are going to be able to take the Steelers in Pittsburgh. They aren't to that level yet

The Colts defense may look like decimated, still yet there offense is one of the best if not the best. This game will be a 60 minutes of football at its best.

I've seen Michael Bay scripts that have less holes than the Colt's secondary. I say it'll cost'em in the end.

In the poll which asked who the last team to go unbeaten would be I picked the Colts.  That was before their D was shredded.  Brady may not be firing on all cylinders just yet, but if anyone can exploit this now young secondary, it's him.

One question will be is the Pats O-line.  They hadn't been playing their best ball, and then suffered a bit of injury themselves.  The Colts may be able to expose that, but I think Brady throws too many quick passes to Welker and jump balls to Moss for that to sway the game too much.

The Steelers are a completely different team than they were in week 3.  It all comes down to Polamalu, the Steelers have not lost with him in the lineup, and they haven't blown 4th quarter leads with him either.  The Bengals are for real, but they're not beating the Steelers twice.

 
 

11/12/09   |   Joe_L   |   12372 respect

I'am not going to argue the point that the Bengals aren't for real because they are, but the Steelers have MORE than proving that they are for real knocking off two of this seasons top 5 teams in a row.

A receiving tandem of Chris Everet & Chris Kattan would be more than enough to beat a team with JaMarcus Russell under center.
