NFL Week 10 Handicapping Tips

NFL Week 10 Match Ups

In a potential preview of this year’s AFC Championship game, the New England Patriots travel to Indianapolis to play the Colts on Sunday night. This game over the past several years has become one of the biggest rivalries in the NFL. After completely dominating the Colts over the first half of the decade, New England has now lost four of last five meetings between these two teams. Some other big games include Cincinnati at Pittsburgh, Seattle at Arizona, and Philadelphia at San Diego.


Here is a brief look at all the match ups with some keys to the game.

Thursday, Nov. 12

(Byes: Houston, N.Y Giants)

Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers, 8:20 p.m.

Both teams are fighting for their playoff life and while Chicago has one four out of the last five meetings, the last time they met in San Francisco the 49ers came away with a 49-7 victory.

Sunday, Nov. 15

Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers, 1 p.m.

A loss by the Panthers would pretty much end any hope of returning to the playoffs as they would fall to 3-6 on the year. Atlanta RB Michael Turner has rushed for 323 yards and 3 TD’s in his last two games.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m.

Rookie QB Josh Freeman will try and win his second start in a row going against a Miami defense that is ranked 22nd overall and 29th against the pass.

Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings, 1 p.m.

Minnesota has won 14 out of the last 15 meetings and Detroit has not won on the road since they beat Chicago back in week eight of 2007.

Jacksonville Jaguars at New York Jets, 1 p.m.

Jacksonville is 0-4 on the road this season. Coming off a bye week it will be interesting to see what adjustments Rex Ryan has made to try and get the Jets’ defense back on track.

Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers, 1 p.m.

The Bengals will try and sweep the season series for the first time since 1998. Steeler All-Pro S Troy Polamalu did not play in the first game this year so his presence should make a difference.

New Orleans Saints at St. Louis Rams, 1 p.m.

The Saints are the highest scoring team in the league, averaging 37.9 points per game, while the Rams are the worst, averaging 9.6.

Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans, 1 p.m.

Bills QB Trent Edwards should get the start after missing the last two games with a concussion. Titans QB Vince Young goes for his third win in a row after replacing Kerry Collins.

Denver Broncos at Washington Redskins, 1 p.m.

Given the fact that the Redskins are ranked 1st against the pass and 25th against the run, Denver will look to rookie RD Knowshon Moreno to carry the load in this game.

Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders, 4:05 p.m.

Both teams will be looking for a fresh start after a dismal first half, but given their records and the current state of their team they will pretty much be playing for pride in this one.

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals, 4:15 p.m.

Arizona is 1-3 at home this year getting outscored by 39 points. Seattle QB Matt Hasselbeck is still expected to start despite being hampered by a sore throwing shoulder and ribs.

Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers, 4:15 p.m.

These two teams are heading in opposite directions after the Cowboys big win in Philly and the Packers embarrassing loss to the Buccaneers.

Philadelphia Eagles at San Diego Chargers, 4:15 p.m.

Antonio Gates could be the key this week for San Diego as the Eagles defense has struggled to contain the tight end position all season long.

New England Patriots at Indianapolis Colts, 8:20 p.m.

Both quarterbacks are at the top of their game heading into this showdown as Tom Brady has thrown for over 300 yards in his last three outings and Peyton Manning leads the NFL with 222 completions so far.

Monday, Nov. 16

Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns, 8:30 p.m.

The Browns, coming off a bye week are going back to Brady Quinn as their starting QB. Ravens QB Joe Flacco will look to get back on track after throwing two interceptions in last week’s loss to the Bengals.

While there are a couple of marquee match-ups, there are quite a few games involving teams hovering around the .500 mark where a loss this week would seriously impact their chances of making the playoffs.

  1. I can’t respect any commentary that spells “won” as in “won” the game as one…

  2. Oh Matt…..we’re sports handicappers….not award winning authors…cmon!

  3. Matt,

    Thanks for catching my misuse of the word “one” in refering to a victory, but I hardly think it should it should be a matter of respect.

    If you think I do not know what I’m talking about, well that’s another story.
