NFL Week 10 picks: Geno Smith takes down Tom Brady, Lions upset Bears, Raiders roll Colts

Can we find a way to give Jim Irsay a weekly talk show or some kind of weekly press conference? Jeff’s opening press conference on Saturday was much more interesting than the first quarter of Monday Night Football between Baltimore and New Orleans.

The Colts owner denounced analytics, using analytics to support his team’s success (but only since 2000, you need to make sure you dump all those years of Peyton Manning here!). He said it’s hard to win “in this league” before pointing out that Michael Jordan missed a lot of shots and lost a lot of games.

Irsay bragged about never missing an opportunity to hire a winning coach and lashed out at the media for potentially questioning what Frank Reich had done for the Colts while ignoring the fact that he had just fired Reich!

I have no idea if the Colts will be good or bad in their first game with Saturday as head coach, and who knows how those eight games will go. I know Irsay is dying to get a high pick to get the franchise’s new quarterback (Manning straight into Andrew Luck will ruin a man) and would love more than anything to hire Saturday full time this offseason.

For now, he’ll just have to come to terms with his new coach facing off against Josh McDaniels, the only person who can probably match Irsey’s contempt with Carson Wentz. Can’t wait to see this game – hopefully Irsei will give a press release after that whether he wins or loses.

Unfavorable weather conditions are expected in Charlotte for this TNF showdown between the two divisional rivals, with total points already down to 41.5 and could drop further if the wind picks up. PJ Walker starts again for Carolina despite being on the bench at half-time against Cinsi last week. He wasn’t good, but defense was more of an issue, allowing Joe Mixon to run wild. This is potentially bad news for the Panthers as a very heavy Falcon attack approaches the city. Cordarrell Patterson looked amazing in his comeback and is set for a big spot here. Caroline’s run defense should be better without worrying about passing; I think as a result the Panthers will find a way to at least keep this game within a field goal.

Choice: Panthers 14, Falcons 10

Props, best rates: Under Cordarrell Patterson over 51.5 yards.

How do they ship the NFL to Germany and not give them an Oktoberfest game!??! Come on! The energy for this game must be electrified, as obviously the Seahawks are huge in Germany and Tom Brady is popular everywhere. The move of the line towards the Bucks (Tampa opened at -1 and rallied to -3) is worrying, as is Tampa being good at stopping what Seattle wants most (running). But I support Geno Smith and Pete Carroll as dogs as long as someone wants to keep scoring them.

Choice: Seahawks 17, Buccaneers 14

Props, best rates: Seahawks +3

Jacoby Brissette’s revenge game?!? It’s probably a stretch, but the Browns may need Brisset to prove themselves in a passing game against the Dolphins’ defense, which has only really burned out in a rush game twice, against Lamar Jackson (119 yards) and Justin Fields (178 yards) . If Miami can lock Nick Chubb in here and make Cleveland one-dimensional, then the Dolphins could take on Tua Tagovailoa cooking in a passing game and Tyreke Hill threatening to set receiving records.

Choice: Dolphins 31, Browns 24

Bet: Dolphins over 48.5 years old.

The desperate Broncos part ways after a big win over the Jaguars in London. Denver’s defense is impressive, but the Broncos have been beaten a few times this season, and there’s nothing worse than Derrick Henry if you’re struggling to keep teams from going down. The return of Ryan Tannehill would be a huge bonus, but if he upgrades before the weekend, that lineup will probably rise above three. If Malik Willis is forced to quit, Tennessee will be in trouble. But if they show up with some kind of read option and force Henry to cook, the defense could hit Russell Wilson.

Choice: Titans 17, Broncos 14

Bet: pass
