The 2020 NFL season has for sure been a memorable one, both for its lack of fans in the stands and general topsy-turvy nature. Seriously, think of one preseason storyline that has 100% come true. It’s difficult, but that’s what makes this season so exciting – the unpredictability.
So without further adieu, let’s jump into the three NFL games you should keep on your radar heading into Week 10.
The New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens – Sunday Night, 8:20 PM
The Patriots are coming off of a “why is this game so close” win against the New York Jets on Monday Night, as their season continues to unravel. It’s fascinating to watch as Bill Belichick‘s team collapses week after week. And history almost repeated itself last week.
However, their Week 10 meeting against the Ravens might be a game where they get their groove back. Currently, oddsmakers are giving the Ravens a -7 point advantage, making them the clear favorite. However, it’s completely possible for the Patriots to pull out a win. So this game could well be a trap.
The Patriots are a bit of a tempest in a teapot when they show up on game day – you simply never know what you’re going to get. And for a Baltimore Ravens team who has had trouble with below average teams, this could get interesting quickly.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Carolina Panthers – Sunday, 1:00 PM
The Buccaneers are coming off a very rough outing against division rival New Orleans, where the Saints kept Tom Brady out of the endzone the entire four quarters. That’s not an easy feat to accomplish.
On the other sideline this Sunday, the Carolina Panthers came within two points of defeating the reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.
Two teams entering this game on Sunday coming from completely different losses, each looking to flip the script from the week before. If that’s not good television, then I don’t know what is.
Los Angeles Chargers vs. Miami Dolphins, Sunday 4:05 PM
It’s finally here. This was the matchup we all wanted to see before Tua Tagovailoa got injured and his draft stock plummeted. Now, since he’s taken the reigns from legendary journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick, we get to see Tagovailoa take on Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers.
In an opposite turn of fortune, Herbert started his first game for the Chargers after a team doctor punctured teammate Tyrod Taylor’s lung while performing a routine pregame shot. Herbert has since been exactly what the Chargers hoped he would be: electric.
Both of these players were supposed to be the top two quarterbacks selected in the NFL Draft, and now we get to see them battle it out on the national stage. It’s not the safest bet on Sunday, with NFL odds indicating only a 2.5-point swing between the two in favor of the Dolphins, but if you’re looking for some excitement, there’s no better game than this.
