Sunday NFL Game Picks: Week 10

Greg Knopping of Pats Pulpit makes his Sunday NFL picks for week ten of the 2013 season.

The New England Patriots are on a bye for week ten, which means we get to watch a weekend of football, worry free.  That being said, here are my Sunday game picks for week ten:

Seahawks at Falcons: The Falcons will be in full-out desperation mode, while the Seahawks will be looking to correct things themselves after nearly losing to the winless Bucs. The Pick: Seahawks 24 Falcons 16

Bengals at Ravens: This is the chance for the Bengals to separate themselves in the division race.  I think they'll do it. The Pick: Bengals 27 Ravens 17

Lions at Bears: Cutler is returning for Chicago after tearing his groin, but is he ready yet? At a minimum, perhaps he can get Alshon Jeffery more involved. I still like the Lions in this one. The Pick: Lions 31 Bears 20

Eagles at Packers: The Packers will need to rely on their defense and running game without Aaron Rodgers.  I like their running game, but not their defense.  The Pick: Eagles 27 Packers 20

Rams at Colts: It looks like the Rams finally found a running back in Zac Stacy.  Unfortunately, they're on the verge of playing for 2014. The Pick: Colts 31 Rams 13

Raiders at Giants: The Raiders looked like they were finally on the verge of the run, until we learned they're just not very good. The Pick: Giants 27 Raiders 10

Bills at Steelers: The Bills get E.J. Manuel back, but the Steelers are going to be playing angry after getting embarrassed against the Patriots last week. The Pick: Steelers 24 Bills 23

Jaguars at Titans: The Titans are on the verge of making a possible run to a wild card spot.  Which means this game has the making of a potential letdown game. The Pick: Titans 30 Jaguars 17

Panthers at 49ers: The Panthers are out to prove their recent run of success has been due to their improvement as a team rather than their cupcake schedule.  The 49ers, meanwhile, have quietly begun putting it together on offense: The Pick: 49ers 24 Panthers 14

Texans at Cardinals: The Texans are now without running back Arian Foster for the season.  The Cardinals defense has been as good as advertised in 2013.  Still, something tells me Case Keenum is going to put on a show. The Pick: Texans 24 Cardinals 21

Broncos at Chargers: Two of the most statistically accurate quarterbacks in the NFL and two below average defenses will mean a lot of scoring. The Pick: Broncos 38 Chargers 31

Cowboys at Saints: I think both of these teams will make the playoffs.  But the Saints at home, coming off a loss to the Jets, will be tough for Dallas to overcome: The Pick: Saints 30 Cowboys 24
