Howdy ho and completely happy day! It is barely mid-November, however in case you look carefully, Christmas lights simply is likely to be popping up round your neighborhood as households prepared themselves for the vacation season. How becoming, as a result of we have got an early present for you on this fantastic Wednesday morning: A tour across the NFL with me — Cody Benjamin, the person with two first names and John Breech’s trusty midweek e-newsletter associate! John determined to take in the present day off in honor of Andy Dalton additionally having fun with his bye week, so that you’re caught with me as we traverse the most recent from across the league.

That is the Choose Six Publication. Now let’s get to it. (And please, do your self a favor and ensure you’re signed as much as obtain this article on daily basis! You do not wish to miss our every day choices of the whole lot you could know across the NFL.)

We have midseason awards picks, playoff projections, Week 10 picks and rather more:

  1. In the present day’s present: Midseason awards, Tremendous Bowl picks

We’re simply previous the halfway level of the 2020 season, so Brady Quinn and Will Brinson used the most recent version of the Choose Six Podcast (pay attention and subscribe right here!) to take inventory of the assorted awards races occurring across the NFL, whereas additionally providing revised predictions for Tremendous Bowl LV. Maybe the most important revelation got here within the duo’s MVP dialogue, throughout which Brady instructed Minnesota Vikings operating again Dalvin Prepare dinner deserves MVP consideration, maybe above even Russell Wilson:

“I do not assume he is getting any love, however in case you have a look at what he is finished when he is been wholesome this yr, and the way he modifies the whole dynamic of the Vikings offense … like, the Vikings are a nasty soccer workforce with out Dalvin Prepare dinner,” Quinn defined. “Once they have Dalvin Prepare dinner, Kirk Cousins can really full some passes, their protection impulsively appears higher, they’re a completely totally different soccer workforce … Dalvin Prepare dinner, when he isn’t taking part in, the Vikings don’t have any likelihood.”

As for Tremendous Bowl picks, Brady caught along with his unique preseason forecast of a championship showdown between the New Orleans Saints and Pittsburgh Steelers. You possibly can catch all his different predictions, together with for each main 2020 award, on the present.

2. Prisco’s Picks: Herbert edges Tua, Rams rebound vs. Seahawks

Pete Prisco is again with one other spherical of weekly predictions, and boy does he have some daring prognostications for Week 10. Here is a sneak peek at a few of the most essential ones, together with Justin Herbert edging Tua Tagovailoa in a battle of rookie QBs and a second straight loss for Russell Wilson and the Seahawks:

Chargers at Dolphins (-2.5)

This can be a lengthy journey for a Chargers workforce that has suffered lots of heartbreaking losses. The final time Miami was at residence two weeks in the past they beat up on the opposite Los Angeles workforce. This can be totally different. I believe Justin Herbert wins the passing duel with fellow first-round rookie Tua Tagovailoa. The Chargers will win a good one. 

Choose: Chargers 23, Dolphins 21

***

Seahawks at Rams (-1.5)

The Rams are coming off the bye, whereas the Seahawks are taking part in a second straight highway sport. That is a problem, however much more so as a result of the Seattle protection is so unhealthy. This can be a sport the place Jared Goff and the Rams get again on observe offensively and the Rams do exactly sufficient to decelerate Russell Wilson. 

Choose: Rams 31, Seahawks 26

3. NFL insider notes: Colts want to think about benching Philip Rivers

The Indianapolis Colts could also be taking part in for a prime spot within the AFC South after they tackle the Tennessee Titans this week, however that does not matter as a lot as what the workforce plans to do at quarterback, per CBS Sports activities NFL insider Jason La Canfora:

Indianapolis has a QB disaster. For as nice because the protection is — and it’s fairly formidable with maybe the quickest linebackers within the league and a defensive MVP-type in deal with DeForest Buckner — the Colts seem to be an outfit destined to be caught in impartial. They’re a playoff workforce, however, given the present limitations at quarterback, not a real contender. As stated right here way back, I by no means would have signed Rivers within the first place, and Jacoby Brissett received a uncooked deal; getting a extra cellular, stronger armed, quicker QB on the market ASAP could be the best way I’m going. Earlier than it is too late.

Rivers, after all, received huge bucks from the Colts this offseason (a one-year, $25 million deal), however he is been hit and miss throughout Indy’s 5-3 begin. Thursday’s sport towards the Titans may go a great distance in figuring out his job safety.

4. QB Energy Rankings: Brees, Herbert climb in prime 10

Cody Benjamin (sound acquainted?) dropped his newest rundown of all 32 beginning QBs on Wednesday, and for the primary time in a very long time, there have been a number of new faces within the prime 10. Guys like Derek Carr, Tom Brady and Ryan Tannehill — who’ve all held top-10 spots in some unspecified time in the future this season — have not essentially been unhealthy recently (until you are Brady!); it is simply that kids like Josh Allen and Justin Herbert are actually flashing after they’re in rhythm. This week noticed huge jumps for each Herbert and Drew Brees inside the brand new prime 10:

  1. Patrick Mahomes (+1)
  2. Russell Wilson (-1)
  3. Aaron Rodgers
  4. Kyler Murray
  5. Ben Roethlisberger
  6. Drew Brees (+2)
  7. Deshaun Watson (-1)
  8. Lamar Jackson (+1)
  9. Josh Allen (+3)
  10. Justin Herbert (+3)

5. Projected playoff possibilities for all 32 groups

Is it too early for playoff discuss? Nonsense! It is all the time time for playoff discuss. That is why John Breech rounded up every kind of knowledge from SportsLine number-cruncher Stephen Oh to undertaking postseason possibilities for each single NFL workforce, after which forecast the most probably eventualities for the 2020 event. Issues may nonetheless change now that the NFL has authorized a contingency plan to develop the postseason by two groups within the occasion of COVID-induced cancellations, however this is what the playoff image — seeding and all — is at present projected to seem like come season’s finish:

AFC

  1. Steelers
  2. Chiefs
  3. Payments
  4. Titans
  5. Ravens
  6. Colts
  7. Dolphins

Simply missed: Raiders, Browns

NFC

  1. Saints
  2. Seahawks
  3. Packers
  4. Eagles
  5. Buccaneers
  6. Rams
  7. Cardinals

Simply missed: Bears

6. Teaser rankings: Ravens, Seahawks are your finest bets

Betting professional R.J. White has launched his prime teaser picks for the Week 10 slate, and two contenders are atop his record: The Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks. Baltimore is a secure wager to learn from a prime-time assembly with the battered New England Patriots, whereas Seattle seems poised to at the least preserve issues shut towards their NFC West rivals:

It took 4 Russell Wilson turnovers for Seattle to lose by 10 factors towards the Payments final week, so we have now to count on he is in a position to preserve this one nearer, regardless that the Rams sport one of many prime defenses within the league. Will that be sufficient to decelerate the highest scoring offense within the league? We count on the Rams to attain factors towards a nasty Seattle protection, however we will belief Wilson to bounce again with a efficiency that covers this teased line as nicely.
