Week 10 NFL late games: Jared Hackmyer picks Raiders vs Broncos, Bengals vs Steelers, Saints vs 49ers, more
DOLPHINS (-2) Chargers (48)
Jared’s Pick: Dolphins
Breakout Player: WR Preston Williams
Miami Rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa proved he could easily be the Dolphins’ franchise quarterback for years to come, after a win over Arizona last week. L.A.’s rookie QB Justin Herbert is having a great first season, but he hasn’t been enough for this team to have a winning record. Both offenses here have been significantly better than their defenses. I think the Chargers will be in the game until the very end, like most games. But Miami should come out on top.
CARDINALS (-2.5) Bills (56.5)
Jared’s Pick: Cardinals
Breakout Player: QB Kyler Murray
QBs Kyler Murray and Josh Allen are both having career years and lead two of the deadliest offenses in the NFL. This will likely be one of the week's higher scoring games as the offenses should overpower the nothing special defenses. I think Arizona will cover the spread because Murray is one of the biggest threats in the league, and will be too much for a Buffalo.
RAIDERS (-4) Broncos (50.5)
Jared’s Pick: Raiders
Breakout Player: TE Darren Waller
Denver‘s defense hasn’t been playing awful this year, despite their record, but I think Las Vegas’ offensive weapons are a little too much for the Broncos. Vegas hasn’t been blowing out opponents, but I don’t think this game will be too close.
Bengals (+7.5) STEELERS (47)
Jared’s Pick: Bengals
Breakout Player: RB James Connor
Pittsburgh is the only undefeated team left in the NFL, but last week they needed the referees to help them beat a team starting their third string quarterback. Also, in Week 2 they almost lost to Denver with Jeff Driskel behind center. I think Pittsburgh will win, but not by 8 points to a team that just beat Tennessee. The Bengals have been in every game except for one against Baltimore. An upset for Cincinnati would be a reach, but I see this as a one-possession game.
Seahawks (+2) RAMS (54.5)
Jared’s Pick: Seahawks
Breakout Player: WR Tyler Lockett
All the Rams have done this season is beat every team in the NFC East, and the Bears; this isn’t really an accomplishment. The Seahawks haven’t beaten any great teams either, but they definitely look better, despite their porous defense. The team’s upside is its elite offense. It should be a close game if L.A.’s defense plays to form, but Seattle should cover.
SAINTS (-9) 49ers (49.5)
Jared’s Pick: Saints
Breakout Player: RB Alvin Kamara
After watching New Orleans annihilate Tampa Bay last week, it’s hard to believe they’ll lose at home to a banged-up team like San Francisco. The 49ers have way too many injuries to compete at this point. I have no doubt New Orleans will win by double-digits.
Ravens (-7) PATRIOTS (43)
Jared’s Pick: Ravens
Breakout Player: TE Mark Andrews
New England almost lost to the 0-9 Jets last week with Joe Flacco in at quarterback, and the Ravens beat the Colts, who have a top 3 defense. I fully expect Baltimore to win by more than 7 points.
