Redskins, Cowboys, Buccaneers To Win In Week 10

November 9, 2017

The NFL is entering a crucial stage of the season as we enter week 10 of the 2017 campaign. Teams are on the verge of seeing their respective terms collapse and are in need of victories to keep themselves in contention.

After a week off for the bye, the AFC’s two big guns the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots return to action in their battle for a playoff bye. The Philadelphia Eagles rest up on their bye week in control of the NFC and will be eagerly watching the fortunes of their rivals in the conference.

We’ll now break down four of the teams that you should have in your teaser for this week’s round of matches.

Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Redskins

Cousins will need another strong outing

The Redskins needed a strong performance to defeat the Seattle Seahawks on the road. Washington battled Pete Carroll’s men for four quarters before snatching a vital win to move back to .500 in their campaign thanks to Rob Kelley’s late touchdown.

Jay Gruden’s men have to maintain a strong pace to make a surge in the NFC. The club are currently ranked as the 10th seed, four spots outside the Wildcard Round. They face another challenge in the form of the 6-2 Vikings, but Kirk Cousins and his offense have the ability to put points on the board.

Minnesota will pose a lot of the same problems that Seattle did last week. However, Cousins was able to strike downfield enough to keep the Seahawks’ defense honest. The foundation of the win was built on the form of the defense and two interceptions of Russell Wilson.

Washington’s defense has the ability to rush the passer and has two solid cornerbacks, with Bashaud Breeland and Josh Norman. That combination should be enough to limit Case Keenum and the Vikings’ offense, who have been hit and miss this term.

Therefore back the Redskins to secure the victory on home soil at odds of 1/1  with ComeOn and in your teaser, which will keep Washington in contention in the NFC East.

Dallas Cowboys @ Atlanta Falcons

Prescott will have an increased workload

The Cowboys should be without the services of Ezekiel Elliott for this contest. Elliott was spared missing his first game of his six-match suspension by a stay last week. He played a pivotal role in Dallas’ win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

However, his punishment should be reinstated by the courts this week, ruling the 22-year-old out of action. In his place Alfred Morris will get the carries in the backfield against Atlanta. Dak Prescott will see an increase in his workload due to absence of the All-Pro.

He has taken major strides in his development and will have no problems adjusting to the responsibility. Dez Bryant, Jason Witten and Terrance Williams have been active in the passing game. Their defense has been steady since the bye week and was stout against the Chiefs bar one play before the half.

Atlanta have fallen off a cliff since their defeat to the Buffalo Bills. Dan Quinn’s have won only one of their last four matches, including their defeat to the Carolina Panthers last time out. At 4-4 in their season, they’re struggling to keep pace. Matt Ryan looks a shadow of the player he was last season when he was awarded the MVP award.

Dallas should be able to maintain their form – even without Elliott – to claim the win at odds of 13/10  with Betway.

New York Jets @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Bucs are a mess and will be without the services of quarterback Jameis Winston for their clash against the Jets. Winston suffered an injury in his side’s loss to the New Orleans Saints with a shoulder injury. Wideout Mike Evans will also miss the match due to suspension for striking Marshon Lattimore.

As a result, former Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will lead the Bucs against his old club. For all their problems, Tampa Bay have enough talent on offense to overcome their losses. However, Dirk Koetter faces a massive challenge keeping his side engaged at 2-6 in their campaign.

The Bucs were expected to challenge for NFC title this term, but have fallen way short of the standard anticipated. In stark contrast, the Jets have been a solid team this season and have punched above their weight. New York produced a fine outing to hammer the Bills last time out and will fancy their chances on the road.

They still have talent issues and their old quarterback will know their tendencies on defense. Koetter needs his team to ease the pressure on his position and have the talent to defeat the Jets. As a result, back the Bucs at odds of 6/5  with Bet365 to claim their third win.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans

The Titans have not been perfect this season, but are still closing out victories. Mike Mularkey’s men are 5-3 in their season and are edging out the Jacksonville Jaguars at the top of the AFC South. They hold the tiebreaker ahead of the Jaguars, but need to maintain their form remain in place for a home playoff contest.

Marcus Mariota has been held in check by his injury problems. He has been steady this term, but not the explosive player expected with only six touchdowns to his name. The 24-year-old put in a solid performance to defeat the Baltimore Ravens last time out, with Mariota throwing two strikes.

Tennessee need Mariota need to improve to make an impact in the playoffs, and he should have enough in his locker to overcome the Bengals. Derrick Henry and DeMarco Murray have been held back in the running game over the last two weeks. A resurgence from the duo against Cincinnati will be a bonus for the Titans.

The Bengals are once again on the road to nowhere in their bid for the post-season.

AJ Green was fortunate to avoid a suspension for fighting Jalen Ramsey in their loss to the Jaguars. They might score more points than the seven last week, but expect the Titans to secure the victory at odds of 9/20  with BetOnline.
