Week 10 NFL picks against the spread recap with Jason McIntyre from Jenkins's blog

 WHAT DID YOU LEARN Im still reeling from Sundayscores what a day in the NFL. For starters 10 of 12 games were decided by one score or fewer and one of the two blowouts was the Saints going down at home to the bottom of the barrel Falcons https://www.pantherssportshop.com/Michael_Oher_Jersey-24. You had the Browns beating the Bills , the home underdog Steelers upset the Rams and the Titans shock the Chiefs. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that the Dolphins won again. Remember Miami was allegedly tanking, starting the season 0-4 but theye covered an incredible five times in a row after beating the Colts in Indy.In betting, an inch might as well be a mile if you dont coverThis was a tough loss with Christian McCaffrey ruled down on the 1-inch line as the clock ran out Quin Blanding Jersey. The Panthers made two costly turnovers, were killed by a brutal whistle on a pivotal third down late in the first half and couldn cover the spread.Article continues below ...Carolina game plan was up-and-down, but ultimately throwing the ball 43 times in the snow with a first-year starter wasn optimal. In the AFC, the Panthers would be a dangerous sleeper in the NFC, they won make the playoffs without a miracle.Lesson learned Stop taking bad teams in a good spotThe Bengals were off a bye and testing out a new quarterback. Backup quarterbacks have fared well this season Kyle Allen, Teddy Bridgewater, Ryan Tannehill, Mason Rudolph and this was Ryan Finley chance to do so at home, against a defense coming off a win over the Patriots. The last seven teams to beat New England and then open the next game as a favorite of a touchdown  were 0-7 ATS.Well make that 1-7. The Ravens led 21-3, and then Finley threw an 89-yard interception to end the game. At 28-3, there was no comeback happening Lamar Jackson is ridiculous He rushed for a touchdown Julius Peppers Jersey, threw for three more and was basically flawless making a strong case for MVP.Dont undervalue the importance of every unit when placing your bets including special teamsThis was a brutal gambling beat of the Chiefs -3.5 and just a devastating loss in for Kansas City whose special teams cost them the game in the final few minutes. The Chiefs dominated the game statistically 530 yards, running 78 plays to just 49 for the Titans and led by five with 90 left when they lined up for a field goal to put them up by eight. The snap happened before anyone was ready and the Chiefs holder just threw the ball away an intentionally grounding penalty.Patrick Mahomes took KC 61 yards in less than a minute to win the game. Then, the Chiefs special teams screwed up again with a snap before the protection was ready and the 52-yard attempt to force overtime was blocked Fozzy Whittaker Jersey. The abysmal Kansas City run defense showed up again, giving up a 68-yard touchdown to Derrick Henry . Incredible stat Andy Reid last 13 losses have all come by seven points or fewer the longest streak in NFL history.The Browns could be a bet-on team if they increased their red zone efficiencyThis one screamed ight side, wrong result. Technically a push isn the worst result in the world but the Browns had this game and repeatedly gave it away Myles Hartsfield Jersey. They were despicable in the red zone again, costing them what would have been an early 14-0 lead.If someone can explain this to me, please let me know Freddie Kitchens called for 38 Baker Mayfield passes against a porous run defense in a game where they led or within three points the entire way. Backing Cleveland continues to be extremely frustrating they seem to always play down to their opponent. On the plus side, the number of penalties committed has decreased each week!You just cant win them allFrom a point spread perspective This is the biggest upset of the season, as the Falcons were 13-point underdogs. It ended my Survivor League season. The 30th rated DVOA defense held the No. 8 offense without a touchdown. Atlanta had seven sacks all season they had six alone on Sunday. The Falcons werent impressive offensively just 4.5 yards per play and turned the ball over but the Saints were a shocking 0-for-3 in the red zone and committed 12 penalties.
