As Thursday night football returns to the NFL, SB Nation New York's Jared Smith needs to tackle his NFL Predictions and Picks a few days earlier. Will it effect the outcome?

Thanks to the New York Giants late rally against the New England Patriots last week, I put together my third straight week above .500. In fact, in the past five weeks, I haven't had a week that I've lost! You know what that means? Yeah, I am taking a serious dive this week.

So, without further delay, here are my Week 10 NFL Predictions and Picks:

Chargers (-7) vs. Raiders (Thurs., 8:20 p.m. on NFL Network): Carson Palmer has looked dreadful in his two games with Oakland (4-4). Of course, that is no shock to fans who watch Palmer last season with Cincinnati. Never pin your hopes on bad quarterbacks and that's what I am doing Thursday night by picking San Diego (4-4). Prediction: Chargers 24, Raiders 13.

Steelers (-3) at Bengals (1 p.m. on CBS): Just when you thought Pittsburgh (6-3) was going to about to break out as one of the top teams in the AFC, it loses. Now, on the road the Steelers need to beat an up-and-coming Cincinnati squad (6-2). When a good team is on the ropes, take'm. Prediction: Steelers 30, Bengals 17.

Saints (-1) at Falcons (1 p.m. on FOX): New Orleans (6-3) rebounded from its terrible loss to St. Louis, two weeks ago, with a solid victory over Tampa Bay. Meanwhile, Atlanta (5-3) is trying to find itself. I think in a game, which is basically a pick'em, I never bet against Drew Brees. Prediction: Saints, 28, Atlanta 24.

49ers (-3) vs. Giants (4:15 p.m. on FOX): Wow, how impressive has San Fransisco (7-1) been? By far, the league's biggest surprise this season, the 49ers host a New York squad (6-2) that could be the second-best team in the NFC. I think San Fran will have something to say about that Sunday. Prediction: 49ers 24, Giants 20.

Jets (-1) vs. Patriots (8:20 p.m. on NBC): New York (5-3) proved something last week in its victory over Buffalo. However, New England (5-3) is coming off a tough loss and you never bet against Tom Brady in this situation. Prediction: Patriots 27, Jets 20.

Last Week: 3-2. Overall: 22-15-2
