NFL Week 10 picks: Little intrigue in the Thursday Night Game

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The league gets off to a slow start with Washington at Minnesota, but much better games will follow it this weekend.

Last week at least had a team likely to be in the playoffs.

Cincinnati dropped an overtime decision to the now bully-embattled Dolphins, the Bengals losing Geno Atkins for the season in the process. This weeks Thursday night game the sink-then-swim Redskins vs. the floundering Minnesota Vikings - whose sole win came at the expense of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cincinnati is taking points over the Ravens at M&T Bank, so naturally, the Bengals are going to take that. Minnesota is giving three points to a sub-.500 team at home on primetime, which is pretty much the modern definition of a bad team. And finally, the Steelers will snap that two-game losing streak, managing to both beat the Bills, and allow fewer than 55 points in doing so.

Here are the rest of the picks.

MINNESOTA (+3) over Washington

Jacksonville (+12) over TENNESSEE

Philadelphia (+1) over GREEN BAY

PITTSBURGH (-3) over Buffalo

GIANTS (-7.5) over Oakland

COLTS (-10) over Rams

Seahawks (-5.5) over FALCONS

Bengals (+1) over RAVENS

Lions (off) over BEARS

49ERS -(6.5) over Panthers

CARDINALS (off) over Texans

CHARGERS (+7) over Broncos

SAINTS (-7) over Cowboys

BUCCANEERS (+3) over Miami
