NFL Week 10 Results: Makin’ Moves

Here is my master list of predictions on the 2013 NFL Seasonhere is Andrew’s master list.

Week 10 of the 2013 NFL season has ended and it appears that the playoff picture is starting to clear up, though the way the Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts played this week do they really deserve to make the playoffs?

Yes of course those two teams deserve to make the playoffs if their records warrant it; that’s a stupid question, but it’s a question I saw frequently on message boards, forums, and reddit. If your record qualifies you for the playoffs, you deserve it because you won the games on your schedule. Nothing else to it, really. Whichever team actually decides to win the NFC East also deserves to be in because that team will have done what they have to do to get into the playoffs.

Fans are too emotional after losses, especially after a two game losing streak (Bengals). There are plenty of weeks left in the season to regroup and become the teams that they were earlier in the season. My message to fans (not including fans of JAX, OAK, TB, HOU, ATL, BUF, PIT, and MIN): relax, we have plenty of football to go and your team likely has a semi chance to make the playoffs.

Now let’s see if I can gain any traction on Andrew, but my gut feeling says I didn’t gain any ground – like usual.

Remember green is correct; red is incorrect. Purple is a tie (there were no ties this week, just making sure you are paying attention.)

Wow! We both called the Jacksonville Jaguars winning this week, though I am almost certain each of us predicted the Jaguars to win a game or two earlier in the year as well. And I did gain ground for once this week! Woohoo! Still I am seven games back, but gaining two games will help tremendously in this stretch run.

Here is my master list of predictions on the 2013 NFL Seasonhere is Andrew’s master list.

Compared to my last few weeks of predictions, this week is MUCH better. It’s not that impressive and I am likely still several games behind Andrew, but is this the beginning of a comeback? Or is it just me treading water to stay semi-relevant with his picks? Let’s TAKE A GANDER!

So, Dez Bryant, who's the better wide receiver? (Source: Wikipedia)
