Hello football fans! Welcome to Week 10 of the NFL season!
It’s hard to believe we’re seven weeks away from the start of the postseason. Yet, here we are with a few surprising teams in the mix.
The NFC features the Dallas Cowboys, Atlanta Falcons, Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks leading their respective divisions. If the season ended today, the New York Giants and Detroit Lions would take the wild card spots.
The AFC has the following teams leading their divisions: New England Patriots, Houston Texans, Oakland Raiders and Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens have the same record as the Pittsburgh Steelers but own the tiebreaker thanks to last week’s victory over them. The wild card spots would end up with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos if the season ended today.
There’s still time for the playoff picture to take definite shape, but that precious time is running out.
I went 11-2 for Week 9, bringing my total to 79-54 for the season. Ties count as losses when you make picks. It’s simple: if your team doesn’t win, you still get the big L. Here’s a recap of what I got right and wrong:
