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 10 in the NFL saw the league’s first tie since 2008, as the Rams and 49ers finished in a 24-24 draw that saw both kickers miss the potential winning field goal in overtime. Because all four panelists took San Francisco, we simply gave them all a tie in the standings, meaning they went 7-3-1 in their unanimous picks. In the end, just one game separated the panel, with Ryan Ruocco and Howard Cross winning the week by going 9-4-1 and Ruocco taking a one-game lead in the yearly standings.

Week 11 is the final bye week of the season (with the Giants, Vikings, Seahawks, and Titans taking a lazy Sunday), and there are a handful of big division rivalry games that could make or break playoff possibilities. The panel is unanimous on eight of 14 games, and four more see just one panelist dissenting from the others, so there’s a chance that Ryan Ruocco’s lead could be short-lived.

Let’s take a look at the latest standings…

WEEK 10 RECORD:
Ryan Ruocco: 9-4-1 (.679)
Howard Cross: 9-4-1 (.679)
Gary Myers: 8-5-1 (.607)
Ross Tucker: 8-5-1 (.607)

SEASON TO DATE RECORDS:
Ryan Ruocco: 98-47-1 (.675)
Gary Myers: 97-48-1 (.668)
Howard Cross: 92-53-1 (.634)
Ross Tucker: 88-57-1 (.606)
