Week 10 Picks: Part 1

This is how we do it, all hands are in the air,
And wave them from here to there.
If you’re an O.G. mack or a wanna-be player,
You see the hood’s been good to me,
Ever since I was a lower-case G,
But now I’m a big G.

10-4 last week. Bumped the overall up to 76-56, a cool 20 above the .500 mark.

That is all. Moving on.

Indianapolis Colts @ Jacksonville Jaguars — Thursday, 8:20pm

Save for two 26-23 overtime losses, the Jags haven’t been competitive in any of their other five losses this season — save, again, for their one win, a five point victory on the road against these same Indianapolis Colts. Since that Week 3 matchup, these two sides have done in complete opposite directions. Jacksonville hasn’t won another game and stand at 1-7, while the Colts are 4-1 since and solidly in the playoff hunt in the AFC. A lot of their success is due to the above average play of rookie quarterback Andrew Luck who, despite the rough “midterm grade” he gave himself, leads all rookie QB’s (there are five of them) in yards passing with 2,404. In fact, he only trails Drew Brees, Tom Brady, and the Manning brothers in that category right now.

There’s not much positive happening in the Jags camp right now. Maurice Jones-Drew — the “bright spot” on the NFL’s worst total (254.4) and scoring (14.6) offense — will miss his third game with a foot injury. It doesn’t get much better on the defensive side where they rank in the bottom third in all major stats. I’m sure they’ll be amped up for the national primtime game, against a division rival they already beat this year, but I just don’t see it happening. Maybe they’ll keep it close, but not close enough. This will, however, be the national coming out party for Mr. Luck, and I don’t think he’ll disappoint. Colts win 26-12
