NFL WEEK 10 PICKS: GAME OF THE WEEK, 2 BIG UPSETS AND ALL THE REST: NFL Week 10 is upon us with Dolphins hosting Ravens last night and winning, 22-10. That result blindsided; didn't think the Fins had it in 'em. Hope the rest of my week goes better! Here are our picks for our Game of the Week and Upset of the Week along with an additional upset and all the rest: NFL Week 10 Gems.
NFL WEEK 9 RESULTS:
(*) OUR PICKS: OK THIS IS GETTIN' RIDICULOUS: It's midseason and we're fighting uphill to avoid one of our worst seasons in 31 years (since 1991) doing picks in the Herald. Our 8-6 mark overall last week left us at .588 for the season, and our 5-9 against the spread left us at .478 ATS. Bad and bad. Last week I nailed my Upset of the Week with Giants beating Raiders ("Aawwk!"), and had Packers with points at Chiefs, but too little else went right. Good example: A close-don’t-count almost in picking Eagles to upset Chargers. The good news: It’s only halftime of the 2021 season. Lots of games left and a lot of fight left in us to find our groove and ride it to a strong second half!
(*) GREG'S LOBOS: YET ANOTHER WIN AND OUR ROLL CONTINUES!: Lobos won 116-113 last week, beating son Chris led by 31 points from Lamar Jackson. That made us 7-2 and in a two-way tie for first place in the PFPI Fantasy regular season, our 10-team friends 'n family league. Also got 23 from Keenan Allen. 'Bos are playoff-boudn and dreaming championship!
(*) HERALD NFL QB RANKINGS: IT'S AN L.A., L.A KIND OF WEEK: Chargers' Justin Herbert wins the Week 9 title and the Rams' Matthew Stafford (despite an off game) edges past bye-week Tom Brady for the season lead in the Herald's updated rankings. Details and the latest Top 20: NFL Week 9 QB Rankings.
