The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Denver Broncos on Sunday but there are 15 other games going on as well. In an odd scheduling twist, there are no byes this week so every team in the league is playing today.

I've put together my picks for Week 10 (minus the Chiefs, who I always pick to win). Who ya got this week?

Arizona Cardinals vs. Philadelphia Eagles: Did you hear DeSean Jackson is out now? I don't think that changes this one -- the Eagles are clearly the better team so I'll take them to win. That said, Philly hasn't been doing a lot of winning lately.

Buffalo Bills vs. Dallas Cowboys: A Super Bowl rematch from the the dynasty in the 1990s. Things are different this time around as Buffalo finally beat Dallas.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts: This game is interesting because it's perhaps Indy's best shot at winning a game this year. Seriously, if they don't win this one, who are they beating?
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals: I'm taking Pittsburgh but I'm also on the Cincy bandwagon. This team is 6-2 and plays like they're the Steelers or Ravens. Steelers win this one in a close, close game.

New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons: Huge NFC South game just past the halfway point. When in doubt, pick the home team -- I'm going with Atlanta.

Tennessee Titans vs. Carolina PanthersListen to this Cam Newton interview. That sure doesn't sound like a diva/icon/entertainer/whatever. The Panthers win this one.

Houston Texans vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Last year the Texans missed the playoffs largely due to their defense. This year, that defense is ranked No. 1. Incredible turnaround by defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. That defense helps them beat Tampa Bay today.

St. Louis Rams vs. Cleveland Browns: St. Louis is terrible and Cleveland has Peyton Hillis, who killed my fantasy team this year (along with Jamaal Charles and his ACL). I'll take Cleveland to extend the Rams' misery.

Washington Redskins vs. Miami Dolphins: The John Beck Bowl. Miami makes it two in a row, beating the Redskins. 

Baltimore Ravens vs. Seattle Seahawks: Here's your survivor pick, even on the road. The Ravens are clearly the better team and they'll take care of business against Seattle.

Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears: This is a huge NFC North game and it's also Megatron's return to Chicago, the site of the "Calvin Johnson rule". I think he makes good on a couple of legit touchdown catches and the Lions win.

New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers: Who knew this New York Team might have the game of the week and not the Patriots and Jets. I can't pick against San Fran now -- give me the 49ers in a close one.

New England Patriots vs. New York Jets: The Pats have lost a pair of games in a row while the Jets have won three in a row. I suppose you have to take the team that's hot, which is New York.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers: Who picked this game? Seems like we've had some bad primetime games this year. Can you guess who I'm picking here?
