Sando's best guesses: Week 10 predictions

By Mike Sando

The Seattle Seahawks' 30-20 victory over Minnesota last week gave the team a 5-1 record outside the NFC West.

It also helped stem a recent trend. NFC West teams had gone 1-7 outside the division over a three-week period. That fell to 1-8 when Arizona lost to Green Bay hours before Seattle defeated the Vikings.

Seattle, Arizona and San Francisco are 12-6 in non-division games. St. Louis is 1-5 in them.

Seattle can make it 6-1 against non-division teams with a victory over the New York Jets in Week 10. That's what I'm expecting to happen. Here's a look at my NFC West predictions for Week 10:
I've somehow gone 8-0 on picks in recent weeks. The season record is 21-8.

Noted: We've also got the "You called it" competition going, plus the Pigskin Pick'em group. Best of luck.
