By The Numbers: Week 10, 2019

I had a very long day this past Sunday, as such I didn’t arrive home from work until halftime of the Packers game, despite said game starting late at 1:25. I was surprised to find they were down by 9 points and scoreless themselves — to the crappy ass Chargers. Unfortunate as that set up is, there was still a half to play. Our offense didn’t wake up until the 3rd quarter was almost over, notching field goal, a touchdown and a 2-pt conversion before going back to sleep for the rest of the game. The offense didn’t do much and unfortunately the defense wasn’t able to pick up the slack so we lost the game. I guess the Chargers are better than their record would suggest this year. Whatever the case, sitting at 7-2 I’m not worried about our season or anything. The rest of the remaining schedule is favorable, with a couple other contenders to face. First up, the Panthers, who probably won’t be starting Cam Newton, so that should mean a victory. We shall see. Let’s go over last week’s picks:

49ers 27, Cards 21 – Correct
Texans 23, Jags 20 – Correct
Bills 24, Redskins 13 – Correct
Titans 21, Panthers 17
Vikings 24, Chiefs 20
Jets 21, Dolphins 13
Eagles 21, Bears 10 – Correct
Colts 27, Steelers 23
Lions 20, Raiders 10
Seahawks 28, Buccs 16 – Correct
Browns 20, Broncos 10
Packers 35, Chargers 14
Patriots 31, Ravens 28
Cowboys 24, Giants 20 – Correct

Week Score: 6-8
Season Score: 83-51

Not a great week for picks either. Who would have thought the Ravens would beat the Patriots so soundly? I didn’t see my team losing either, nor did I think the Raiders would beat the Lions. The other matchups could have gone either way. Let’s make picks for week 10 and move on with our lives, shall we?

Chargers 27, Raiders 24
Lions 21, Bears 20
Ravens 31, Bengals 10
Bills 24, Browns 10
Packers 28, Panthers 17
Saints 35, Falcons 20
Giants 27, Jets 21
Cards 21, Buccs 19
Chiefs 28, Titans 17
Colts 25, Dolphins 13
Rams 21, Steelers 14
Cowboys 24, Vikings 21
Seahawks 31, 49ers 27

Taking some risks here as well, but hoping that the Seahawks get rid of the last undefeated teams so we don’t have to hear about that shit anymore. The teams that stayed undefeated this long had easy schedules to this point, and as soon as a challenge arose the Patriots got knocked off. I suspect it’s time for the 9ers to drop a game as well. Then we can get back to looking at who’s really performing overall. We’ll check in next week to see how I did.
