Predicting NFL Week 10 (0:47)

Can the Saints take down the Bills to keep their winning streak alive? Will the Falcons be able to rebound against the Cowboys after a disappointing loss to the Panthers? Take a look at what the Football Power Index has to say about it. (0:47)

ESPN senior writer Mike Sando asks league insiders to pick winners in selected games each week. Three evaluators joined the panel for Week 10. This week's selected games: Saints-Bills, Chargers-Jaguars, Vikings-Redskins, Cowboys-Falcons and Patriots-Broncos.


New Orleans Saints at Buffalo Bills

Sunday: 1 p.m. ET, Fox | Point spread: Saints by 2.5 | PickCenterInsider

Four teams rank among the NFL's top 10 in both most points scored and fewest points allowed. That the Saints are one of them stands among the NFL's surprises this season (the Rams, Jaguars and Seahawks are the others). New Orleans' improved play on defense -- albeit against some limited offenses -- explains why two of three insiders took them to win at Buffalo.

"There is probably no team hotter than the Saints now," one of the insiders said. "They can cover long enough to make it hard for Tyrod [Taylor] to get some of his junk throws. I don't think Buffalo is going to be able to stop New Orleans on offense."
