Week 10: The Turning Point





Welcome back to NFL Picks! Week 10 of the NFL season marks the Turning Point here on xboxlivenetwork.com's NFL Picks. What's Jerhawk talking about, you may be asking? Well, for starters, we will be re-picking for the Super Bowl (if you choose). Also, the 2-Point Conversions will begin again. I will also show you guys a never before seen job interview between KnightnBattle10 and Deus Legend.

We would like to welcome the newest member of the NFL Picks, joining late, Castortroy4206. Welcome aboard!


But first, as always, those crazy standout picks from Week 9:


  • EVERYBODY picked Atlanta over Washington AND New England over Miami, and got both CORRECT.

  • EVERYBODY got the Green Bay Packers WRONG after their upset loss to Tampa Bay.

  • JohnnyX77 was the ONLY person to pick the Houston Texans WRONG against Indianapolis.

  • JRC865 got the Kansas City Chiefs WRONG, but was the ONLY one to pick them.

  • Deus Legend was the lone wolf to pick the Carolina Panthers WRONG after their loss to the undefeated Saints.
  • xxInspirationxx and IronHorse1995 were the ONLY ones to pick Denver WRONG against Pittsburgh.

Our results from Week 9 alone:

1.) Stopable / 10
T2.) BlazenHawks / 9
T2.) KnightnBattle10 / 9
T4.) Deus Legend / 8
T4.) JRC865 / 8
T4.) JohnnyX77 / 8
T4.) IronHorse1995 / 8
T4.) Castortroy4206 / 8
T9.) Jerhawk / 7
T9.) xxInspirationxx / 7

Finch865 did not pick.

Our overall PowerRankings, presented this week by the U.S. Armed Forces. We would all like to thank those of you who help to serve and protect our country every hour of every day.

T2.) KnightnBattle10 / 87
T2.) Stopable / 87

Since it's Week 10, you now have the opportunity to change your Super Bowl pick if you're unhappy with who you chose at the beginning of the season. You can either decide to stick with the team you chose and go for the 10 possible points, OR you can choose a different team worth 5 possible points. Castortroy, you can pick a team now, but it'll be worth only 5 points if you get it correct.

Here's those Super Bowl picks again for those of you who may have forgotten. These were made before the season started:

Jerhawk: Tennessee Titans (2-6)
Deus Legend: Baltimore Ravens (4-4)
BlazenHawks: Atlanta Falcons (5-3)
Stopable: Philadelphia Eagles (5-3)
KnightnBattle10: Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2)
xxInspirationxx: New England Patriots (6-2)
JRC865: New England Patriots (6-2)
Finch865: Philadelphia Eagles (5-3)
JohnnyX77: Arizona Cardinals (5-3)
IronHorse1995: Dallas Cowboys (6-2)

Now for the Week 10 Matchups. Starting now until the end of the regular season, I will put a little "*" symbol next to the four or five games that I have chosen as the biggest mismatches with the largest point spreads between them. If you go with the upset pick and get it right, you will be awarded two points. If you go with the upset but get it wrong, you'll be awarded with 0 points. If you just decide to go with the favored team and get it correct, you'll get the normal one point. If the game ends in a tie, then everyone will be awarded with a correct pick and the world will explode.

Chicago @ San Francisco (Thursday Night Mike Singletary Bowl)

Atlanta @ Carolina

The Vikings are favored by a whopping 16.5 points.

Seattle (3-5) at Arizona (5-3)
Arizona is favored by 9 points over the Seahawks.

The Ravens are favored by 10.5 points over the Browns.
Here's where I found the point spreads: http://www.footballlocks.com/nfl_point_spreads.shtml

Please have your picks in by kickoff of the Thursday Night game if you want that one to count. You can just pick for that one, and then hold off on the rest by Sunday. As long as the picks are in by game time. Thanks everyone!
Here's that job interview between KnightnBattle10 and Deus Legend. Did Knight get the job? (Warning: Some material may not be suitable for the younger viewers)
