NFL Week 10 is in the books. In a week that was full of blowout victories and underdog wins, let’s look at the top 3 games from last week’s action. The rankings are based on a few different criteria: final score, points scored, and the eye test. These rankings are subjective and only a reflection of my opinion along with the criteria above. All of that being said; let’s get into it.
1. Vikings vs Chargers
Final Score — (4-5) Minnesota Vikings 27-20 Los Angeles Chargers (5-4)
Reason to watch — Justin Jefferson put on a clinic. The former first round pick had nine receptions for 143 yards. His best play of the game came on a long pass from Kirk Cousins. Jefferson ran a streak down the left sideline and Kirk threw the ball up to him. Jefferson channeled his inner Randy Moss and jumped over the Chargers CB to snag the ball out of the air. This could be the springboard Jefferson needs to finish the season in dominant fashion.
2. Saints vs Titans
Final Score — (5-4) New Orleans Saints 21-23 Tennessee Titans (8-2)
Reason to watch — Ryan Tannehill didn’t have the best day, but he showed leadership in an offense that currently lacking that. Since Derrick Henry’s injury, the Titans have managed to keep winning. Ryan Tannehill has been the steadying force thus far. On a day in which Tannehill was suffering from a stomach bug, he went out, threw and ran for a TD. Many have questioned Tannehill’s status among top 10 qbs in the league. Tannehill continues to prove his doubters wrong.
3. Jaguars vs Colts
Final Score — (2-7) Jacksonville Jaguars 17-23 Indianapolis Colts (5-5)
Reason to watch — The Jaguars found themselves in a 17-0 hole in the first quarter. Trevor Lawrence and the Jags defense stepped up big after that. The defense only allowed six points for the rest of the game. Trevor Lawrence showed great composure after a shaky start. This type of game is a good sign if you’re a Jags fan. Trevor continues to show the progress one would expect from the first overall pick. From this point, the Jags have to keep getting Lawrence the help he will need.
