      Here's my results for week 10
      W-L-T record: 4-4
      Season record: 41-30-2

      New York Jets (-5) Over Denver Broncos

      After getting blown away by the Patriots, the Jets should underperform against the Broncos, who are 3-1 under Tim Tebow, right? Nope, sorry, the Broncos just aren't that good, as they proved when playing the Lions, a team built very much like the Jets...

      Atlanta Falcons (-6 1/2) Over Tennessee Titans

      The Falcons have proven they are a tough team this season, despite two losses to the Saints and one to the Packers. They'll take care of the Titans in a home game...

      Buffalo Bills (+2) Over Miami Dolphins

      Miami has won two in a row and the Bills have lost two in a row, but both streaks should end on Sunday...

      Baltimore Ravens (-7) Over Cincinnati Bengals

      The Ravens seem to really underperform when it's not a big game. But they should be up for the Bengals, who at 6-3 are a serious playoff rival...

      Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+13 1/2) Over Green Bay Packers

      You would think I've learned not to bet against the Packers, but I haven't. I still buy in to the idea the Bucs are a better team than they're being given credit for...

      Dallas Cowboys (-8) Over Washington Redskins

      The Cowboys have got it in gear, perhaps too late to make the playoffs. Playoffs or not, Romo and co. will crush the Skins...

      San Francisco 49ers (-9 1/2) Over Arizona Cardinals

      The 49ers passed an important test by beating the Giants last week. They will continue the momentum with a blowout over the Cards...

      Chicago Bears (-4) Over San Diego Chargers

      The Bears haven't always looked pretty, but they appear ready to make the playoffs. The Chargers have looked terrible in losing four in a row...

      New York Giants (-4) Over Philadelphia Eagles

      The Giants, despite their loss to the 49ers, look to be top dog in the NFC East. They should dispatch the disappointing Eagles (with or without Vick) in NY...

      New England Patriots (-15) Over Kansas City Chiefs

      Whether they won or lost, I'd take the Pats to crush the Chieft in New England on a rebound game after the Jets. And that's before I knew Matt Cassel was out...

        Here's my results for week 10
        W-L-T record: 3-4
        Season record: 39-39

        This week is Big Dog Week...

        Buffalo Bills (-2) over Miami Dolphins

        Given that the Dolphins are going on the road after a short 3-day rest following a demoralizing loss to play the Titans, to play in Buffalo where it will be close to freezing, all this smells like a loss to Miami.

        Green Bay Packers (-3 1/2) over Detroit Lions

        The Packers are quietly looking as tough as any team in the NFL.

        Arizona Cardinals (+10) over Atlanta Falcons

        Big Dog #1: It's not that I don't like the Falcons, it's just everyone really likes the Falcons and so they're giving way too many points. Giving the Cards ten points is a good bet.

        Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-1 1/2) over Carolina Panthers

        The Bucs are proving themselves formidable opponents, with an incredible rushing attack due to rookie Doug Martin (who may deserve ROTY even more than RGIII or Andrew Luck) and Josh Freeman covertly having a great season (18-5 TD-Int ratio.)

        Cleveland Browns (+7 1/2) over Dallas Cowboys

        Big Dog #2: I'm not a fan of the Browns (in fact, this is first time I'm betting on them in over 1 1/2 seasons) but after 9 games they're -42 in net points (or less than 5 a game) while the underachieving Cowboys are -16. This smells like a close game, so I'll take the points.

        Indianapolis Colts (+9) over New England Patriots

        Big Dog #3: Is Andrew Luck and the Colts equal to the Pats and Tom Brady? Nope. Can they keep it within nine points? Yes.

        Jacksonville Jaguars (+16) over Houston Texans

        Big Dog #4: Yes, the Texans may be the best team in football, and yes, the Jaguars may be the worst, but sixteen points is too many for an NFL game.

        Cincinnati Bengals (-3 1/2) over Kansas City Chiefs

        Whatever the flaws of the Bengals, they're on a higher level than the Chiefs.

        San Diego Chargers (+8) over Denver Broncos

        Big Dog #5: I'm a big fan of the Broncos and Peyton Manning, but eight points to the Chargers (a quality team, despite their underachieving record) is way too much.
