NFL picks Week 10: Our Bucs coverage team’s predictions

The Kansas City Chiefs are the biggest lock of the week and the Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars are the most popular picks for upset of the week, according to the Times' NFL pickers.

Four of our seven members of the Times' Bucs coverage team picked Kansas City, a whopping 16.5-point favorite over Arizona Sunday, as their lock of the week. The Panthers, 4.5-point underdogs Thursday at Pittsburgh, and Jacksonville, 3.5-point underdogs Sunday at Indianapolis, are upset of the week picks by two pickers each.

We explain our Bucs picks on tampabay.com on Friday, but five of our seven pickers predict the Bucs will win at home Sunday against Washington.

Here’s all the picks.
