NFL Game Rankings: Week 10
With that in mind, let's take a look at the top games on the schedule this week:
5. Philadelphia Eagles (4-5) at Green Bay Packers (5-3) - 1 PM ET, FOX
Every Philadelphia win has come on the road this season which bodes well for their chances in this one. It also helps that Aaron Rodgers isn't playing due to a shoulder injury. Nick Foles and the Philly offense went nuts last week against the Raiders, and if they can carry that momentum over into this game, it's hard for me to see the Rodgers-less Packers scoring enough points to keep up. I'm going with the Eagles to move to 5-1 on the road this season.
4. Detroit Lions (5-3) at Chicago Bears (5-3) - 1 PM ET, FOX
Jay Cutler should be ready to go for Chicago, which is obviously good news for the Bears' offense. Getting a win in Green Bay without Cutler was huge, but they certainly need him back against a Detroit team that pounded them in Week 4. The Bears couldn't manage their turnovers in the last meeting and if the same happens this time in Chicago, the Lions will walk out victorious. Something tells me that the Bears will get their revenge here though.
3. Denver Broncos (7-1) at San Diego Chargers (4-4) - 4:25 PM ET, CBS
The health of head coach John Fox has been top priority for the Broncos as of late, but I'd still expect them to come out and play like the best team in the NFL. The Chargers have proven that they can beat top competition, as they've scored wins over Indianapolis, Dallas, and Philly this season. I could see San Diego playing well for three quarters before Peyton Manning takes over and ultimately leads the Broncos to another victory.
2. Carolina Panthers (5-3) at San Francisco 49ers (6-2) - 4:05 PM ET, FOX
Remember when the sky was falling in San Francisco after a 1-2 start? Well, the Niners are riding a five game winning streak and playing excellent football in the process. Meanwhile, the Panthers are one of the surprises of the NFL as they currently sit two games above the .500 mark. The key to this game will be whether or not San Francisco can get their usual yardage on the ground since the Panthers boast one of the best run defenses in the league.
1. Dallas Cowboys (5-4) at New Orleans Saints (6-2) - 8:30 PM ET, NBC
This is definitely a game meant for prime time, as Tony Romo and Drew Brees square off in what should be a pretty fun battle. The Saints will be looking to put last week's bad loss at the Jets behind them, while the Cowboys came from behind to beat the Vikings. While Dallas can score points, I don't think their secondary is good enough to get enough stops against Brees and this offense. It wouldn't surprise me if the Saints rush out to a big lead early and never look back in route to a big win.
