2013 NFL SEASON WEEK 10



Last Sunday the Cowboys earned a 27-23 win over the Minnesota Vikings. With the win, Dallas got above .500 and kept a one-game lead over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Up next is the New Orleans Saints... great... the Cowboys will probably be at .500 again before going into their bye week. Former Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is now the defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints. A win over Dallas would give him a sense of satisfaction.

Four teams will be on a bye week for Week 10: Browns, Chiefs, Patriots, and Jets. So if you have Jamaal Charles, Tom Brady, or Jets Defense/Special Teams on your fantasy team, then you might want to find suitable replacements.

The week starts with the Vikings returning to Minneapolis to take on the Redskins. Early games on Sunday include the quarterback duel in Green Bay between the Packers Aaron Rodgers Seneca Wallace and the Eagles Michael Vick Nick Foles.

Last season's NFC Divisional playoff game between the Falcons and Seahawks takes place in Atlanta. The Seahawks will be looking to keep their hold on the top seed in the NFC while the Falcons will be fighting for their playoff lives.

The Bengals can further improve their chances to win the AFC North with a win over the Ravens in Baltimore. Right now the Lions are on top in the NFC North via tiebreakers and can make it more definitive with a victory over the Bears.

The Sunday late games include an AFC West matchup between the Chargers and Broncos. The Broncos are expected to be without their coach John Fox for a period of time as he recovers from a heart ailment. The Texans will try to get their season back on track in Arizona with an interim coach after their coach, Gary Kubiak, collapsed at the end of the first half of their game last week. The 49ers will host Cam Newton and the Panthers in their efforts to keep pace with division leading Seattle.

Sunday night is the above mentioned Cowboys at Saints. Monday night is between the Dolphins and winless Buccaneers in Tampa. This appears to be the place for Tampa's first win of the season given the turmoil surrounding the locker room infighting in Miami.

Rough week for the three of us, but I came out on top with the best record and the only one above .500. Mr. Blake has a one game lead over me while Ms. Roberts trails me by 10 games. Behind her are the Washington Generals and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
