Week 10 NFL game picks: Parity returns at the midway point

New, comments
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

After a week of incredibly similar picks among the Silver & Black staff, this week's picks may just be the least alike since early in the ever unpredictable NFL season.

After a week alone at the top, Marcus jumps back into a tie with me for the top spot in the rankings this week. He did it by being the only one of the staff to go incognito and correctly pick Miami over the Bengals. Guess he thinks he's a big bully now.

There were only two other rogue picks last week by Jeff and RDreamer and both turned out to be incorrect. The rest of the picks were the same across the board. We went 6-4 on consensus picks last week, including all of us getting the winner of the Raiders vs Eagles game wrong right along with the entire ESPN staff. That should have been all the proof we needed that the Raiders were doomed.

This week there are just four consensus picks - Titans, Broncos, Saints, and Dolphins. The Raiders game in New York was an especially difficult pick with both sides having valid reasons why they could take the win.

Marcus went out on a limb this week as the only one to pick the Falcons, Rams, and Panthers to win. So it seems he will either pull away or fall well out of the top spot depending on those picks. It is good to see some parity this week after such agreement across the board last week.
