Fearless Rick's NFL Week 10 Picks - Early Games

Welcome to the very best in winning NFL and College Football picks.

(Byes: Cleveland, Kansas City, New England, New York Jets)

Thursday, November 7

Washington Redskins (-2 1/2, 51) at Minnesota Vikings, 8:25 pm - Sadly, another clunker of a game for the NFL Network, though the Redskins may draw some attention if only to see RG3 in action. The 'Skins are coming off an overtime win against the Chargers which was precipitated by a goal-line stand at the end of regulation that held the Chargers to a field goal instead of a game-winning TD, so the defense, usually lacking, is feeling good going into week 10.

Minnesota may have played their best game of the season in a 27-23 defeat at Dallas, and look alive with Christian Ponder at QB, though they enter this contest riding a our-game losing streak and are just 1-7, one of the biggest disappointments in the league.

With the Redskins still very much alive in the horrifying NFC East, expect another strong effort and a hard-earned win since the Vikings haven't yet shown signs that they know how to win.

Prediction: Redskins 27 Vikings 21

Sunday, November 10

Seattle Seahawks (-6, 44 1/2) at Atlanta Falcons, 1:00 pm - The Seahakws showed their quality credentials by coming back from a 21-0 deficit to Tampa Bay last week, holding the Buccaneers to just three second-half points, tying the game at 24 and winning in overtime, 27-24.

With that effort under their belts, they should be heading into Atlanta full of confidence, and why not, the Falcons are another of the biggest disappointments of 2013, having lost their sixth game against just two wins in a 34-10 pounding by Carolina last week.

Falcon fans - and probably more than just a few players - are likely dispirited and not ready for a team of Seattle's stature. The Seahawks are the league's third-best scoring defense (16.6 ppg), and the Atlanta offense has struggled all season. Not hard to figure who wins this one, and big.

Prediction: Seahawks 30 Falcons 13

Cincinnati Bengals (-1 1/2, 44) at Baltimore Ravens, 1:00 pm - The Bengals have a two-game lead in the AFC East, over - not Baltimore or Pittsburgh - Cleveland, of all teams, though Cincinnati is the only team in the division with a winning record (6-3), while the Brownies get the week off. A win over the Ravens would put the Bengals in a position to begin thinking about not only the playoff, but a possible first week bye, but certainly, they'll take a win, after dropping a 22-20 decision to the Dolphins last Thursday.

With plenty of time to heal up and the Ravens reeling after three straight losses (including last week's 24-18 bomb loss at Cleveland), the Bengals will be out for blood and will likely extract some from their hosts.

The 3-5 Ravens haven't shown up on offense all season, and the Bengal defense is allowing just 18.5 points per game. This should be a close game, if only because the Ravens have a good defense, but, in the end, the Bengals will wear them down.

Prediction: Bengals 23 Ravens 17

Detroit Lions (-2, 52 1/2) at Chicago Bears, 1:00 pm - Chicago gutted out a 27-20 win at Green Bay Monday night, primarily because the knocked QB Aaron Rodgers out of the game in the first quarter. Josh McCown didn't exactly excite, throwing 22 completions in 41 attempts and two TDs, but neither did he throw any picks.

The Bears will need a similar effort from their QB, and a better one from the defense if they think they're going to get a win over the well-rested Lions, who have their offense intact. The Lions will prevail with Matthew Stafford at the helm and his fleet of receivers/ Detroit won the first meeting, in Detroit, 40-32, but the Bears are hobbled and home field won't provide much of an advantage.

Prediction: Lions 34 Bears 20

Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers (even, 47), 1:00 pm - Without Aaron Rodgers, the Packers are extremely vulnerable, and the prognosis for his return is uncertain, having suffered a fractured collarbone in a loss to the Bears last week. He surely won't play this week, giving the Eagles cause for celebration and the potential for a much-needed win.

Green Bay will have to lean heavily on their defense against a now-healthy Nick Foles, who appears to be the immediate future for the Eagles after throwing for seven TDs and 406 yards, socking it to the Raiders, 49-20, last Sunday. If Foles stays hot, the packers have no hope of staying with the up-tempo Philly offense, which is finally beginning to click with regularity.

A win by the Eagles keeps them a game behind Dallas in the NFC East, at worst, and a Dallas loss to the Saints Sunday night would be welcome in Philadelphia. Rodgers loss is a tough (pardon the pun) break for the Packers, but the Eagles should rip them pretty good here.

Prediction: Eagles 38 Packers 20

St. Louis Rams at Indianapolis Colts (-10, 44), 1:00 pm - The Rams are playing valiantly after the loss of QB Sam Bradford, but Kellen Clemens is surely not the answer, especially against a Colts team that rallied to win, 27-24, at Houston last week after falling behind 21-3 at the half. Houston won the statistical war, out-gaining Indy 483-314 yards, but three straight second-half TDs from Andrew Luck to T.Y. Hilton buried the Texans, possibly for the season.

The Rams look like another victim in the Colts' drive to the playoffs and will fall hard as they are 1-3 on the road while the Colts are 3-1 at home.

Prediction: Colts 24 Rams 10

Oakland Raiders at New York Giants (-7 1/2, 43 1/2), 1:00 pm - Amazingly, at 2-6, the Giants are still alive in the NFC East, but this is a game they absolutely must win.

Fortunately for them, they are playing the Raiders, who are 0-3 on the road and just got blasted by the Eagles, 49-20. Additionally, teams making the trek east from the west coast often suffer jet lag and assorted other dull playing themes, so the Giants have to be very hopeful here.

The line on this game certainly seems extravagant, as the Giants, despite two straight wins and a week off, still don't have a reliable running game, nor can they protect eli Manning very well. New York may well prevail, but it will be a close call and they may just get beat.

Prediction: Giants 24 Raiders 21

Buffalo Bills at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3, 43 1/2) , 1:00 pm - Flip a coin on this one, as the Steelers are 2-6, their season in tatters, while the Bills have a veritable youth movement and a carousel at quarterback, with E.J. Manuel slated to get the start after missing four games.

While the Steelers get the nod from the Vegas guys, the Bills have shown good energy and a tough defense that never quits. How well the Bills do on this roadie depends on whether Manuel is ready or rusty, though one suspects that running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson should provide a cushion for the young QB.

Buffalo played quite well in their 23-13 loss to the Chiefs; a couple of key turnovers sealed their fate. Pittsburgh fell behind early against the Patriots last week in Foxboro, tied the game, but fell apart late in a 55-31 rout. The Bills may be licking their chops in anticipation of this heated regional rivalry.

Prediction: Bills 27 Steelers 24

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans (-11 1/2, 41), 1:00 pm - Can the Jaguars finally get a win or should they start thinking about drafting a QB with the first pick in the Spring draft?

That would be no, and, yes, they will not win and they should be saving their money to pay up for maybe Johnny Manziel or Aaron Murray.

The Titans have Joe Locker, who looked rock-solid in Tennessee's 28-21 win over St. Louis last week. With a healthy QB and an adequate defense, the home boys should come through with a romp.

Prediction: Titans 34 Jaguars 10
