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!

NFL Week 10 is upon us, meaning we’ve reached double digits on the overall calendar and the second half on every individual one. Last week we posited that Ryan Ruocco’s contrarian ways could make or break his Pick ‘Em season, and it turned out to be the latter; of the four games where he differed from the gang, poor Ryan went 0-4, and that spiraled him to a 5-8 finish – the first sub-.500 pick set of the season.

On the plus side, Howard Cross and Gary Myers tied for the weekly win at 9-4 and Ross Tucker was right behind at 8-5, meaning Ross’ season lead ballooned to four games and Gary pulled right onto Ryan’s tail in what is now a battle for second place.

This week, the panel is back to their harmonious ways; they are unanimous on 11 of 14 games, one of which predicts the Buccaneers to finally break the cycle and defeat Miami for their first win of the season. In the other three games, it's a 3-1 split all around, with Ross, Howard, and Gary each going out on a limb for one pick. In the end, there will be no full change in the standings order, but if Green Bay holds on at home to defeat Philly, Gary can at least pull into a tie with Ryan for second place.

Let’s see who the gang has gone with this week, but first, a look at the latest standings…
