Friday Five, Week 10


Week 10 kicked off with a battle for the AFC South, but this Sunday gives us 12 more games with a number of intriguing matchups. Per usual, below are five I’m watching in Week 10 plus game picks from Lindsay and I. Happy Week 10!

Sunday Early Games:

Buccaneers vs Panthers Spread, Odds, Line, Over/Under, Prediction and  Betting Insights for Week 10 NFL Game

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-3) at Carolina Panthers (3-6)
This one is a battle of the NFC South and could have some intrigue. The Buccaneers had been cruising along until a 38-3 beat down on Sunday Night at the hands of the Saints. Now they need to get a win to get back on track, but the Panthers are no push overs. The Panthers took the Chiefs to the limit in Week 9, and even without Christian McCaffrey they’re a feisty team.

Sunday Late Games:

How to Watch Chargers vs. Dolphins on November 15, 2020

Los Angeles Chargers (2-6) at Miami Dolphins (5-3)
Record-wise this isn’t an even matchup, but it does pit two emerging rookie quarterbacks. Justin Herbert has only one win as a starter, but he’s looked exceptional with 17 passing TDs and two rushing TDs against only eight turnovers. Tua Tagovailoa, meanwhile, has gone 2-0 as a starter, and his Dolphins are in the thick of the playoff hunt. This should be a fun one to watch as these dynamic young quarterbacks lead these offenses.

Buffalo Bills (7-2) at Arizona Cardinals (5-3)
Josh Allen has the Bills cooking, sitting at 7-2 and in first place in the AFC East. He’s also coming off a signature win over the Seattle Seahawks last week. Kyler Murray, meanwhile, has been balling out for the Arizona Cardinals, and has his team poised for a playoff win. They’re three weeks removed from their own signature win over the Seahawks, but the Cardinals really need a win over the Bills to rebound from a tough home loss to the Dolphins in Week 9.

Seattle Seahawks (6-2) at Los Angeles Rams (5-3)
The battles between the Seahawks and Rams are always pretty great, but this one has the added intrigue of playoff positioning. The Seahawks have a thin lead in the NFC West after stumbling in Week 9 in Buffalo, while the Rams are at 5-3, tied with the Cardinals one game back of the Seahawks. This game will go a long way toward the seeding in the NFC West and the NFC in general and figures to be a heck of a battle.

Sunday Night Game:

Ravens vs. Patriots final score: Lamar Jackson shines on the ground in Week  9 upset of Patriots - DraftKings Nation

Baltimore Ravens (6-2) at New England Patriots (3-5)
Another classic AFC battle as the Ravens head to New England to battle the Patriots. The Ravens are 6-2 and in prime playoff position, but their offense hasn’t always looked spectacular. The Patriots, meanwhile, are just 3-5 and really need to make a move. The team looked a little sharper on Monday night, but still went to the wire to beat the winless Jets. Both these teams want the win, and this figures to be a chess match between a couple great head coaches.
