NFL - Week Ten Preview

With just seven weeks to go in the 2015 NFL season (where does the time go?) there are still three undefeated teams (New England, Carolina and Cincinnati) remaining, which is a first in NFL history to have as many as three teams this late in the season at that mark.
Can this continue?
Perhaps, but the team facing the stiffest challenge this week is the New England Patriots as they travel to New York to face the Giants, who twice defeated them in the Super Bowl, including following the Patriots undefeated 2007 regular season.
The Bengals face the Houston Texans (in Cincinnati) on Monday Night Football while the Panthers will travel to Tennessee to face the Titans.
New England is certainly capable of laying the beat down on the Giants, because one never can be quite certain which Giants team will show up from week to week. The Patriots, on the other hand, are the model of consistency in the NFL.
No matter the outcomes this weekend, these three teams have shown they can continue their winning ways as they all look to improve to 9-0 for the season.

The Heftyinfo capsule style previews follow along with the predictions for Week Ten around the NFL.

Jacksonville (2-6) at Baltimore (2-6) - Both teams are 2-6, but the Ravens are far superior to the Jaguars.

Detroit (1-7) at Green Bay (6-2) - The Packers will take out their frustrations on the hapless Lions in Lambeau Field.

Miami (3-5) at Philadelphia (4-4) - The Eagles soar once again this week.

Cleveland (2-7) at Pittsburgh (5-4) - Take the Steelers!

Chicago (3-5) at St. Louis (4-4) - The over achieving Bears will be playing a team with a real defense this week.

Dallas (2-6) at Tampa Bay (3-5) - The Cowboys need a win in the worst way while the Bucs have been inconsistent ... Something has to give.

Carolina (8-0) at Tennessee (2-6) - Beware the Titans? Not this week.

New Orleans (4-5) at Washington (3-5) - The Saints completely laid an egg last week, can they rebound on the road?

Minnesota (6-2) at Oakland (4-4) - The Vikings can prove they are legitimate contenders with a road win in the "Black Hole."

Kansas City (3-5) at Denver (7-1) - The Chiefs have been rolling while the Broncos suffered their first defeat last week.

New England (8-0) at New York Giants (5-4) - Can the Giants knock off the Patriots? Head Coach Tom Coughlin does have a 5-1 record against Bill Belichick. Beware!

Arizona (6-2) at Seattle (4-4) - A great "prime time" Sunday night matchup. Seahawks always seem to have their way at home with Arizona.

Houston (3-5) at Cincinnati (8-0) - Monday Night Football in Cincinnati featuring the unbeaten Bengals?  Who Dey?  Bengals roll!
