NFL Week 10 games: What to watch for this weekend

Week 10 of the NFL is packed with divisional games. Keep an eye on many of those and much more come Sunday afternoon.

The NFL season is beginning to get into the thick of the playoff push. With each team through at least half its schedule, the races are taking shape. The contenders are separating from the pretenders.

This weekend, the gap between these groups will only continue to widen. On Thursday night, we saw the Indianapolis Colts overtake the Tennessee Titans in the AFC South, beating them convincingly in Nashville.

Come Sunday, there will be a legion of divisional tilts with plenty on the line. Arguably the biggest game of the weekend takes place at SoFi Stadium, where the Los Angeles Rams play host to the Seattle Seahawks. If the Rams win, they pull ahead of Seattle in the NFC West and give the Seahawks their second consecutive defeat. Los Angeles has now four of the previous five matchups between the two, and owns the league’s second-best defense in points and yards allowed. It won’t be easy for Russell Wilson and Co.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants lock horns at MetLife Stadium. Less than a month ago, the Eagles beat New York by a point, and now they lead Big Blue in the rancid NFC East. If the Giants can win, both teams will be tied atop the division in the win column with three. However, Philadelphia would still be leading by a game with only five defeats compared to New York’s seven.

In the AFC, it’s the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals matching up for the first time in 2020. Pittsburgh is 8-0 and trying to strengthen its hold on the AFC’s top seed. As for the Bengals, they’re coming off the bye and looking to make a statement. Joe Burrow has been excellent this season, but can he pull off the upset at Heinz Field? The Bengals are out of the playoff mix, but they can play spoiler.

Finally, a non-divisional matchup. Keep an eye on the New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers at the Superdome. New Orleans is coming off the biggest win any team has enjoyed this season, a 38-3 drubbing of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday night. Conversely, the 49ers are 4-5 and desperate to stay alive in the NFC race despite myriad injuries. This game could be closer than expected.
