Welcome to Week 10 of the Football Hoser's 2015 NFL picks, where we're still chuckling about Rex Ryan trolling the Jets (and given the reaction, the NFL Network) with IK Enemkpali.
Our thoughts are with those in Paris and Lebanon. Stay strong.
Detroit (+11.5) at GREEN BAY (48): The Lions suck. We all know this. But the
Packers have shown definite flaws, and a double-digit spread? I'm not going
that far. Packers 31, Lions 20.
Dallas (+1.5) at TAMPA BAY (43.5): I'm starting to think Washington isn't the
most despicable franchise in the league. Thanks, Cowboys! Buccaneers 23,
Carolina (-5.5) at TENNESSEE (43.5): Marcus got me believin' (but not enough to
win)! Panthers 24, Titans 20.
Chicago (+7.5) at ST. LOUIS (42.5): There will be two really good young backs
in this game. Jeremy Langford is the real deal. Rams 24, Bears 19.
New Orleans (-1) at WASHINGTON (50.5): You know what gets no use? A
"D-FENSE" sign owned by a fan of either of these two teams. Saints
27, Racists 24.
Miami (+6.5) at PHILADELPHIA (47.5): The Eagles are a very good 4-4 team. The
Dolphins are not a very good team no matter how you parse it. Eagles 27,
Cleveland (+4.5) at PITTSBURGH (41): Johnny Manziel vs. Landry Jones. Who says
the NFL has a quarterback problem! Steelers 20, Browns 17.
Jacksonville (+5.5) at BALTIMORE (48): Not as big an upset as Holm/Rousey, but
the Jaguars are starting to come on. Jaguars 24, Ravens 20.
Minnesota (+3) at OAKLAND (43): It still seems weird to see the Raiders as favourites
a lot, doesn't it? Raiders 26, Vikings 20.
Kansas City (+6.5) at DENVER (42): Are the Chiefs about to pull a reverse KC
and get hot in the second half of the season? If you were ever going to beat
the Broncos at home, this might be the time ... but probably not. Broncos 26,
New England (-7) at NEW YORK GIANTS (54.5): The Giants seem to have some weird
voodoo over the Patriots, but a scowling little Belichick doll full of pins is
too creepy to imagine. Patriots 33, Giants 27.
Arizona (+3) at SEATTLE (44.5): Keep your eye on the Marshawn Lynch situation.
The Cardinals might be without John Brown too, but Lynch would swing this by a
field goal. This pick assumes he's in. Seahawks 22, Cardinals 20.
Houston (+10.5) at CINCINNATI (47.5): Won't be much of a game, but maybe JJ
Watt will muss Andy Dalton's hair a bit. Bengals 29, Texans 20.
Lock of the Week: New Orleans
Trifecta: Jacksonville, Tampa Bay, New Orleans
