Wow, what a week of football! We had some incredible games including that Vikings comeback win in overtime, the Packers win a thriller, and Jeff Saturday won his first game coaching the Colts. Before we say goodbye to Week 10 for good, let’s take a look back at what happened for a quick rundown of what happened and the injuries that matter.
Here’s what we learned, from the week that was Week 10.
In the blink of an eye and an overtime loss, the Bills dropped from the top seed to the sixth seed in the playoff hunt and third in the division. The Jets jumped the Bills while idle but the Dolphins, who we’ve been eyeing as a schedule-wrecker, is back atop the conversation after another win scoring over 30 points. What’s fascinating though is that for years the Patriots dominated a division, and in the year where they look the most beatable, they would make it in as the last seed of the playoffs. That’s right, the entire AFC East would be playoff teams if the season ended at Week 10.
Buffalo Bills – So we have all the talking head shows talking about what an epic collapse the Bills had, giving away a 14 point lead, and all the plays the Vikings had to make, and then making them. The hard pill to swallow is Josh Allen committing a fumble on their own one-yard line, allowing the Vikings to take the lead with 0:30 seconds left, and throwing two red zone interceptions, including one in overtime to end the game. This after a week of not knowing if Allen’s elbow would be good enough to play. He threw for 330 yards but the aforementioned mistakes were costly and we have a bunch of soundbites of him beating himself up. Devin Singletary had his best game of the season and with only 14 touches. He rushed for 47 yards and two touchdowns in a game where he was needed to take pressure off Allen.
Miami Dolphins – Tua Tagovailoa didn’t break a sweat completing 25-of-32 passes for 285 yards and three touchdowns, including one to Tyreek Hill. Jeff Wilson and Raheem Mostert both scored touchdowns and combined for 184 rushing yards. They will be a scary 1-2 punch going down the home stretch into fantasy playoffs. Miami is sitting pretty atop the AFC East but again, opponents need to score over 30 points against them if they want a chance at topping them. Otherwise, teams will get blown out.
