2014 Week 10 NFL Picks: 5* Steelers -3.5, 4* CARDINALS -7 #freenflpicks #nflpick

[Steelers/JETS]  Having started off slowly, the Steelers have powered over 414 yards per game in their last five games in rolling up 4 of 5 wins ATS.  Roethlisberger powering 315 yards per game through the air during the run as his rating has quietly powered up to 110.6.   The Jets, 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine games, are averaging only 15 points per game in their last five game in being outscored by over 16 points per game; they simply do not seem to have what it takes to trap the Steelers in New York.  Relying on its rushing defense to stay in games, look for the Jets to struggle under the weight of the Steelers passing attack.

[Rams/CARDINALS] Although the Rams have some exciting recent performance, it is too hard to resist the Cardinals in front of their home crowd.  2-5 ATS in their last seven games, outscored by nearly 9 points per game, Davis, 87.8 rating will struggle with a Cardinals defense that is shutting down opposing rushing attacks.  2-0 ATS in their last two matchups with St. Louis, including a 20 point margin of victory in their last battle in Arizona, look for the Cardinals, 4-1 ATS in their last five games to down the Rams.

  1. LOSER – Steelers 13, Jets 20 – East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) – Michael Vick turned back the clock and the New York Jets snapped their eight-game losing streak. But was it enough to call off the planes? Vick threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter and flashed a vintage running game while leading the beleaguered Jets to a 20-13 victory over Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. The upset over one of the NFL’s hottest teams came amid calls for the Jets leadership to be replaced and ended the franchise’s worst losing streak in 18 years. It was as unlikely an outcome as there has been this season, especially considering how good Roethlisberger was during a three- game winning streak. Big Ben set an NFL record by throwing 12 touchdown passes in the last two games, six each in wins over Indianapolis and Baltimore. He hadn’t thrown an interception in over three games, but was picked off twice by Jets safety Jaiquawn Jarrett. On the other side of the ball, Vick rushed for 39 yards and threw for 132 in his second straight start. His touchdown passes to T.J. Graham and Jace Amaro in the opening quarter included a 67-yard bomb to Graham. Roethlisberger passed for 343 yards, bringing his total to 1,470 in the last four games. He had an 80- yard touchdown throw to Martavis Bryant with 76 seconds left. The Jets (2-8) will head into their bye week coming off a win instead of what could have been a franchise-worst losing streak. The lead up to Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh (6-4) sure wasn’t pretty. A plane circling Jets practice Wednesday pulled a banner calling for general manager John Idzik to be fired. Head coach Rex Ryan responded by having a toy helicopter tow a “Go Jets” banner during an indoor practice. On Sunday, a second plane: This one flew over MetLife Stadium towing a banner that read “Jets Rebuilding Since 1969,” according to pictures posted online.

  2. WINNER – Rams 14, Cardinals 31 – Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) – The Arizona Cardinals were trailing when quarterback Carson Palmer exited with a left knee injury early in the fourth quarter. Instead of falling apart, the best team in the NFL rallied around Drew Stanton and scored two defensive touchdowns to beat the St. Louis Rams, 31-14, on Sunday. Trailing 14-10, Palmer, who signed a three-year, $50 million contract extension earlier this week, went down in obvious pain when he was sacked by Rams safety Mark Barron. Palmer eventually walked off the field with a noticeable limp. He was then put on a cart and taken to the locker room. The Cardinals have won five in a row and are off to an 8-1 start for the first time since 1948 when the franchise was based in Chicago. Palmer completed 25-of-36 passes for 241 yards and an interception before leaving. Stanton connected on 3-of-5 passes for 85 yards. Arizona coach Bruce Arians said after the game the team wouldn’t know Palmer’s prognosis until more tests are done. According to NFL.com, the team believes the quarterback tore his ACL. Larry Fitzgerald caught nine passes for 112 yards for Arizona, which is off to a 5-0 start at home for the first time since 1976 while based in St. Louis. Andre Ellington carried the ball 18 times for 23 yards and a score. Davis completed 17-of-30 passes for 216 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for the Rams (3-6). Jared Cook caught two passes for 84 yards and a score.
