Week 10 of the NFL season has come and gone, and unbelievably, we are already nearly 60% of the way through the season.
There were clashes of titans last weekend, like the Sunday clash between the Seahawks and the 49ers, as well as memorable performances such as Ravens QB Lamar Jackson’s demolition of the Cincinnati Bengals.
Here is a look at the biggest winners of Week 10 in the National Football League.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson absolutely went off in his team’s 49-13 rout of the Bengals on Sunday. The current MVP frontrunner had arguably his best game as a professional, throwing for a total of 223 yards and 2 touchdowns on only 15 completions, also chipping in with 65 yards on the ground and a rushing touchdown.
At this point, Jackson and the 7-2 Ravens are one of the biggest surprises of the NFL season, and they’ll be looking to do even more down the stretch and into the playoffs.
Who said the NFC West race was already finished? The Seahawks, who have won the division in three of the past six seasons, climbed back into the hunt with a gritty Sunday night win over the previously-unbeaten 49ers that went into overtime at Century Link Field.
The Seahawks now sit at 8-2, only a half-game behind San Francisco, and have quarterback Russell Wilson playing arguably the best football of his career. Can Seattle hunt down Jimmy Garroppolo’s 49ers down the stretch? It looks even more possible now.
Not many expected the Titans to get much production out of new starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill after Marcus Mariota’s benching, but the former Dolphins quarterback has shown that he has something to offer.
Tannehill went off in the Titans’ surprising Sunday win over the Kansas City Chiefs, throwing for 181 yards and 2 touchdowns in a 35-32 thriller. Not only this, but he showed his steely veteran nerve down the stretch as he led the Titans down the field on their game-winning drive. He’s now thrown for 1,161 yards with 8 touchdowns and 4 interceptions since taking over. Has the former first-rounder revived his career?
After all of the pre-season turmoil and question marks related to an inexperienced roster as well as the Antonio Brown saga, few could have pictured the Raiders with a 5-4 record and tied with the Steelers for the AFC’s final wild-card spot.
Yet, here we are. Jon Gruden’s team advanced past .500 for the first time all season with a 26-24 win over the Chargers on Thursday night. What’s even more surprising is that they only trail Kansas City by a half-game in the AFC West race. Could they shock the world and make the playoffs?
