Fearless Rick's NFL Week 10 Picks - Early Games

Rick Gagliano | November 12-15

All times Eastern - Click here for late games.

Thursday, November 12

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets (-2 1/2, 42 1/2) 8:25 pm - Buffalo came off their bye week with a solid effort, downing the Miami Dolphins, 33-17.

The Jets were less dominant in their 28-23 win over Jacksonville, though the Jaguars, with Blake Bortles at QB, have become a reasonably good offensive team.

Both teams are looking up in the standings at 8-0 New England, but are also in position for a wild card spot. Jets are 5-3; Buffalo, 4-4.

Look for the Bills to use their considerable defensive skills to hold back the Jets and even up with NY in the standings.

Prediction: Bills 23 Jets 18


Sunday, November 15

Jacksonville Jaguars at Baltimore Ravens (-5 1/2, 48) 1:00 pm - Hard to believe that both of these squads are 2-6, but the Ravens have been on the short end of five games in which the margin of victory was six points or less. Additionally, Baltimore's two wins have not been exactly overwhelming, winning by three over Pittsburgh (in OT) and last week beating the Chargers, 29-26.

The Jags have been improving, and need one more win to match their total for all of last season. With Blake Bortles at quarterback, anything is possible for this bunch, and the Raven defense hasn't been very good, allowing 26.8 ppg. Though Jacksonville has lost three of their last four, they've scored 110 points in those games.

Prediction: Jaguars 32 Ravens 27


Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers (-13, 47 1/2) 1:00 pm - The Packers are coming off consecutive losses - both on the road, at Denver and Carolina - so there's a very good chance that they won't lose any more games this season, though they do have to meet the Vikings twice.

Minnesota is tied with the Pack in the NFC North at 6-2, but the lions have won just once this season, their lone win in OT against the Bears, 37-34, in week six. They've been blown out repeatedly, especially in week eight against the Chiefs in London, 45-10.

If there's any game that begs to be a rout, it's this one. Look for the Pack to get back on track.

Prediction: Packers 38 Lions 13


Miami Dolphins at Philadelphia Eagles (-7, 46 1/2) 1:00 pm - After changing head coaches and winning two straight, the Dolphins were brought back to earth by the Bills in a 33-17 defeat on the road.

Miami's offense has virtually nothing good going for it. They are #21 in the league in scoring (21.4) and heading south.

While the Eagles prevailed in Dallas last week in overtime, they'll not have to go that route as their defense should give the offense some relief.

Prediction: Eagles 24 Dolphins 10

Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers (-4 1/2, 41) 1:00 pm - Out again, Ben Roethlisberger will be missed against this division rival, because the Browns have nothing to lose. Cleveland is 2-7, though still dangerous to other teams in the AFC North.

The Steelers held on barely in their 38-35 win over Oakland last week and they're home again, which is good news. The Browns will keep this one close and Johnny Manziel may just be a hero for a day with a late, winning score.

Prediction: Browns 25 Steelers 23


Chicago Bears at St. Louis Rams (-7 1/2, 42 1/2) 1:00 pm - St. Louis is coming off a tough loss at Minnesota, losing 21-18 in overtime, and they'll be happy to be back home, especially since the Bears will be on the road for the second straight week.

Additionally, the Bears played Monday night, so they'll have less time to prepare, which could be problematic. Chicago made many errors against the Chargers, but still managed to prevail, 22-19. They will have to be more disciplined against the Rams' defense, which is #6 in points allowed, giving up just 18.3 per game.

Chicago improved to 3-5 with that win and may make this one closer than people expect.

Prediction: Rams 23 Bears 17

Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-1, 43) 1:00 pm - Without Tony Romo, the Cowboys have dropped six straight and are in danger of being completely out of playoff contention and it's only midseason.

The only bright spot for Dallas is that the rest of their division is so bad. The Giants lead at 5-4, Philly is 4-4 and the Redskins are 3-5.

However, the Buccaneers have shown that they can compete with James Winston behind center and the Cowboys could be in deep trouble here.

Prediction: Buccaneers 24 Cowboys 16


Carolina Panthers (-4 1/2, 43 1/2) at Tennessee Titans 1:00 pm - Carolina is one of just three undefeated teams remaining in the NFL and they shouldn't have many issues defeating the Titans. Marcus Mariota returned last week, leading Tennessee to a 34-28 OT win at New Orleans. He will cause some pain for the Panther defenders, but nothing like what Cam Newton will do when Carolina has the ball.

The Panthers should have no problems reaching 9-0 in this conference match-up.

Prediction: Panthers 27 Titans 10


New Orleans Saints at Washington Redskins (even, 50 1/2) 1:00 pm - Defense is optional here with the Saints #31 in points allowed, at 29.8. Washington is only marginally better, allowing 24.4 per game, against arguably weaker opponents.

The Saints' defense was victimized in last week's 34-28 home loss to the unimpressive Titans. The Redskins had a rough outing at New England (who hasn't?), losing to the Patriots, 27-10, though the defense was actually pretty solid.

At home, with a chance to stay relevant in the NFC East, the 3-5 'Skins should make their point.

Prediction: Redskins 31 Saints 24
