Want to test your football prognostication skills against the experts of This Week in Football? This season, you have the chance!

Each week, we will post the TWIF panel’s picks for every game on the NFL slate here on YESNetwork.com, so you can see how your thoughts compare to those of Ryan Ruocco, Howard Cross, Ross Tucker, and Gary Myers. In addition, we’ll also be keeping a tally of how Ryan and the gang do all season, so come January you’ll see who has bragging rights as the big winner among the panel.

You can keep track of your record and see if you end up beating the experts...and of course, don't forget to watch This Week in Football every Tuesday during the NFL season on YES!

Week 9 saw our fifth near-perfect pick set, as only Indianapolis’ victory over Miami prevented TWIF host Ryan Ruocco from going 14-0. All four panelists were double-digit winners in Week 9, but Ruocco’s 13-1 record gave him the weekly win and tied him with Gary Myers (who went 10-4) atop the year-to-date standings as well.

Week 10 “officially” begins the second half of the season, as all 32 teams have now played at least eight games. The panel is unanimous on 11 of 14 games this week – including their picks of a Giants win in Cincinnati and a Jets loss in Seattle – and almost unanimous on two others, so Howard Cross (Minnesota) and Gary Myers (Philadelphia) will need their gambles to come through if they want to make some headway in the standings.

First, let’s take a look at those up-to-date standings…

WEEK 9 RECORD:
Ryan Ruocco: 13-1 (.929)
Howard Cross: 11-3 (.786)
Gary Myers: 10-4 (.714)
Ross Tucker: 10-4 (.714)

SEASON TO DATE RECORDS:
Ryan Ruocco: 89-43 (.674)
Gary Myers: 89-43 (.674)
Howard Cross: 83-49 (.629)
Ross Tucker: 80-52 (.606)
