NFL Week 10 Game Picks


The Musket Fire staff are putting on our prognostication hats, staring into the Musket Fire crystal ball, and predicting the winners each week throughout the NFL season. Contributing writer Ryan Hannable and I are making the game picks, so feel free to pick against us in the Comments section. Last week, I was 8-6 in my picks, pushing my record to 88-41 on the season, while Ryan was 9-5, pushing his record to 59-39 on the season. Ryan and I are starting the week down one as we were both wrong in picking the Chargers over the Raiders Thursday.

Let’s get right to the picks from Ryan and I, including our pick for the Patriots-Jets game…

New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons

Tennessee Titans at Carolina Panthers

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals

New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers

  • JP: Packers
  • RH: Packers

New England Patriots at New York Jets

  • JP: Jets – The Pats haven’t beaten the Jets in New Jersey since Rex Ryan took over, and I don’t see this Patriots team breaking that trend.
  • RH: Patriots

Put It In The Bank

  • JP & RH: Ravens over Seahawks. The Ravens are coming off of a big win over the Steelers on Sunday Night Football and the Seahawks have been playing terrible of late. Easy call here. (RH)

Upset Special

  • JP: Panthers over Titans. The Panthers are trending upward whereas the Titans are starting to slip. At home, Cam Newton is able to lead the Panthers to an upset. 
  • RH: Colts over Jaguars. I think this week is the Colts’ time to get their first win. They are playing at home and the Jaguars are not as good as years past.
