The first game of Week 10 is in the books.  And what a game it was, a proper blowout of the Jaguars.  It's now time for the Colts Authority NFL Picks Challenge, and we would love to see your week 10 predictions – straight up, no point spread.  So, between the yard work, college football, and just having a great weekend, please take a moment to tell us who you think will win this week's NFL games.  You can post your winners in the comments, email them to marcus@coltsauthority.com, or send them to us on our awesome Facebook page (and give us a like, while you're at it). 

Who did we pick to win this week?  I'm glad you asked.

Naturally, the Colts were a popular pick for Thursday Night Football, except for a couple of us, who may have underestimated how awful Jacksonville is

Indianapolis has never lost on Thursday night.  So, if you add your picks, and you want to say you went with the Colts, we'll give you that one.  It's a freebie.

IND DEN NYG MIA DET BAL NE TB NO SEA PHI SF CHI PIT

 

We have a new leader, Kyle Rodriguez, with a 50-19 record, narrowly beating Scott Kacsmar and Josh Boeke.  Perhaps these three should be putting a few dollars on these games.  There are several NFL analysts who aren't doing as well as they are. 

 

 

Here's a full run-down of this week's games:

Writer's Note: I have not yet figured out why this chart's format goes haywire on a smartphone.  I have been working on it, and it will hopefully be fixed soon. 

 

IND @ JAX

Chad Henne replaced Blaine Gabbert, and scored a late touchdown, causing a mustache controversy in Jacksonville (both players sported some sweet 'staches).  Alas, it was too little, too late against the Colts, who won comfortably 27-10

DEN @ CAR Well, what you do here is pick Peyton.  Carolina could win, but you pick Peyton. 
NYG @ CIN A battle of two teams that lost close games last week.  Cincy would probably like to defend their home field this time, but I like the Giants, to win, that is.  I also just like the Giants. 
TEN @ MIA A team that's all about defense (Dolphins) will face a team that barely plays defense (Titans).   
DET @ MIN Stafford and the Lions have put together a nice winning streak, while the home team has been suddenly bad at football. 
OAK @ BAL Good teams win the close games.  Lesser teams get beaten by the Buccaneers.  Sorry, Oakland.  
BUF @ NE America will cheer for the Bills, but the Patriots will win.  Such is life. 
SD @ TB Quick quiz: Better TD-INT ratio, Phil Rivers, or….Josh Freeman.  It's Freeman by a mile, 16-5 to 12-10. 
ATL @ NO Atlanta has gone 8-0 against 8 fairly crummy teams.  The Saints are a strange case in that they're not a bad team, but they have been imitating one all season. 
NYj @ SEA Even with that disgusting win against the Colts, the Jets' defense still gives up 25 pts per game.  Seattle looks like the better team. 
DAL @ PHI Who will throw the most interceptions in this one?  Seriously, if one of these teams takes care of the ball, they should pick up the win. 
HOU @ CHI

Yeah, both of these teams are pretty good…

KC @ PIT The Steelers on Monday night at home against the Chiefs.  Not fair.  The Chiefs' fans are bound to be thinking about the draft right now. 

 

Alright, there you go.  If you feel like showing off your game predicting skills, tell us your week 10 winners in the comments, by email, or even Facebook.  Good luck and have a great weekend. 

Indianapolis at Jacksonville
Denver at Carolina
N.Y. Giants at Cincinnati
Tennessee at Miami
Detroit at Minnesota
Oakland at Baltimore
Buffalo at New England
San Diego at Tampa Bay
Atlanta at New Orleans
N.Y. Jets at Seattle
Dallas at Philadelphia
