NFL Week 10 picks

Last week’s game against the Jets was the first time this season the Bills were heavily outplayed. If the Bills were a great team, they’d be 7-1. But they’re not. They couldn’t close out the Bengals and failed to stay with the Giants.

Former Oklahoma Sooner DeMarco Murray has rushed for 253, 74 and 139 yards in the last three weeks.

The Bills have been a good football team this season, but Dallas is a huge game. The Cowboys have struggled at times this season and are beatable. It’s gut check time for the Bills.

The Patriots are at the Jets this week, so one team will go to 6-3 and maintain a hold of the AFC East. The Bills need a win to keep pace. A playoff contender would go into Dallas and come out with a win. DeMarco Murray has been hot for the Cowboys, but the most inspired running back in the game should be Fred Jackson, who will be playing on the same ground he owned as a child. Bills (+5.5) over DALLAS.
