NFL injuries have been a massive bummer this season. A couple major quarterbacks have been lost for the season and we’ve seen star skill players sidelined the last few weeks. Despite all of that, we are still seeing entertaining games at a high level. This week has a couple of great divisional matchups. Here are our Top 3 2023 NFL Games Week 10.
Cleveland Browns vs Baltimore Ravens
For my money, the Ravens are the best team in the National Football League at this point in the season. They have the best point differential and are dominating teams from start to finish. They are coming off their best win of the season, blowing out the then first-place Seahawks by a final score of 37-3. Baltimore is 7-2 and are in first place in the AFC North. The Browns, Steelers, and Bengals are all tied for second place in the division so this would be a massive win for Cleveland to pull off this victory win and gain that divisional win. The Browns have the best defense in the league, but the Ravens are right up there with them. It’s been an impressive run that the Browns have gone on considering Deshaun Watson has been out. The crowd in Baltimore will likely be too much and I am not picking against the Ravens. Prediction: Browns 18 Ravens 23
Detroit Lions vs Los Angeles Chargers
The Bolts got a must-win game against the New York Jets on Monday Night Football and now we have a chance for a very fun shootout with the Detroit Lions. Dan Campbell’s team is coming off a bye week and they have won five of their last six games. Campbell is the better coach in this fight and has better play calling on the offensive side of the ball. Playing in LA is no real advantage for the Chargers who are entering this game on short rest while the Lions have had the last week off. Detroit has shown skill on the defensive side of the ball with the fourth best DVOA in the league. While I think that Herbert will have some success against them, I do think that the Lions will control this game and get a big win on the road. Prediction: Lions 28 Chargers 20
Houston Texans vs Cincinnati Bengals
This certainly isn’t a game that I’d have circled to begin the year as one that would have been one of the best of the week, but after CJ Stroud’s performance against Tampa, the Bengals should be worried. Stroud put up one of the greatest rookie QB performances of all time, throwing for the most yards in a game for a first year QB with 470. This Texans team sits at 4-4 and in second place in the AFC South with a real shot at the playoffs. After a slow start, Cincinnati has bounced back in a massive way with wins over the Seahawks, 49ers, and Bills. While I believe the Ravens are the best team in the league, I believe that the Bengals are the hottest in the league. Joe Burrow has a knack for winning games like this. Prediction: Texans 25 Bengals 30
