NFL Week 10 Best Bets: Zeke’s absence won’t matter, Juju to get behind the wheel

It may look like there is not much in the way of intrigue on the Week 10 NFL schedule.

But there are still a number of matchups with playoff implications on Sunday’s slate, which will provide some evidence as to whether the Cowboys can stay in the hunt without Ezekiel Elliott.

The Jaguars haven’t adopted the hashtag Sacksonville for nothing. Jacksonville leads the league with 35 sacks this year. Behind them are the Panthers, Cowboys and the team they play on Sunday — the Chargers, who have 26. Philip Rivers and Blake Bortles figure to be hitting the turf a lot this weekend.

After his record-breaking touchdown against the Lions, Steelers wideout Juju Smith-Schuster celebrated by wrapping a chain around a bike on the sideline having seen his stolen earlier that week. Now a fully licensed driver, would it really be a shock to see Smith-Schuster break out a driving-themed celebration should he get in the end zone against the Colts?

Of course, the Texans went another route, signing, then releasing Matt McGloin, then signing Josh Johnson.

Geragos told the “Reasonable Doubt” podcast this week that he thinks that makes Kaepernick’s collusion case against the NFL even stronger.

“I have to say I just thought it was a no-brainer that somebody would do the right thing and sign him and the fact that they haven’t, thank you very much,” Geragos said on the podcast (h/t to ProFootballTalk). “They’ve just made the case even stronger.”

Recall earlier in the week that Texans coach Bill O’Brien noted the team had considered Kaepernick, but seemed to dismiss the notion of signing him by saying he’s “a good football player, hasn’t played football in a while.” Then the team signed Johnson, who hasn’t thrown a pass in an NFL game since 2011
