Week 10 is upon us! As we roll into the second week of November the playoff races are starting to take shape, and boy oh boy, the AFC is going to be wild down the stretch.

The New York Jets are in Vegas this week to face the Raiders. Both teams are on the outskirts of the playoffs, looking up at a back-load of AFC North Teams (Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Cincinnati), all of whom control the final three spots in the AFC playoff picture.

Let us not forget that the AFC East, AFC North, AFC South are all up for grabs.

  • NY Jets (4-4) @ Las Vegas (4-5)

    Well, I am here in Las Vegas as you read this getting ready for one of the biggest games of the season. This is really it for the Jets. If they win, they have a 53 percent chance of making the playoffs. Lose, and the odds go down to 25 percent according to Pro Football Focus. All eyes will be on Zach Wilson in this one. If he struggles, will Robert Saleh finally bench him? Not likely, but that is the storyline to follow. The Raiders are coming off the high of slapping around the Giants in the first game of the post Josh McDaniels era. This will be a slugfest, but if the Jets defense can step up this is the game to do it. PICK: UPSET SPECIAL JETS 20 – RAIDERS 17

  • NY Giants (2-7) @ Dallas (5-3)

    The lats time these two teams met in Week 1 Dallas won 40-0. That was with Daniel Jones in the lineup. What the heck is gonna happen here with Tommy DeVito under center? This could get ugly fast. Dallas is coming off a heartbreaker vs. the Eagles, and the Giants are basically a punching bag right now.

    PICK: COWBOYS 34 – GIANTS 7

  • San Francisco (5-3) @ Jacksonville (6-2)

    No offense to the NBC for sticking with Jets-Raiders on Sunday night, but this game between the 49ers and Jaguars should be the primetime Sunday night game.  The 49ers are on a three-game skid after lighting up the NFL to start the year. Brock Purdy is healthy and the 49ers are not the type of team that loses four in a row. The Jaguars have been good, and are in competition with Kansas City for the top seed in the AFC. But this is a tough spot for the Jags going up against this defense of the 49ers.
    PICK: 49ers 24 – JAGUARS 20

  • Cleveland (5-3) @ Baltimore (7-2)

    Somehow the Cleveland Browns are 5-3. They have done it with smoke and mirrors all year, and now they get controversial quarterback DeShaun Watson back from injury. The Ravens have been rolling. They are quietly the AFC’s hottest team at 7-2, and steamrolled the Seahawks last week. A win this week for the birds and they can start to separate themselves from the AFC North.

    PICK: RAVENS 27 – BROWNS 20

  • Detroit (6-2) @ LA Chargers (4-4)

    So are the Chargers for real now or what? The Bolts decimated the Jets on Monday night, as Zach Wilson was looking through the eye hole of his helmet all night. But the offense and Justin Herbert were shut by the Jets defense, despite scoring 27 points. Don’t know what to expect in this one. The Lions are 6-2. Jared Goff has looked great, and the Lions are coming off a bye week. This is a total pick’em if you ask me.

    PICK: CHARGERS 28 – LIONS 24.
