Top NFL Games of Week 10

The 2022 NFL season has been chaotic and unpredictable. If there is any week that demonstrates just how crazy it has been so far, it is Week 10. From the wild weekend, TWSN NFL analysts Marissa Myers, Matt Levine, and Isaac Nelson give the top games of the weekend. 

Denver Broncos @ Tennessee Titans 

If you only watched the first quarter of this game and turned it off, you did not see the game when it became interesting and earned a spot in the top games of the week. The first nine drives of this game ended in a punt, so I honestly cannot blame you for turning it off at that point. Starting in the second quarter, things did truly get exciting. The away team in the Denver Broncos took first blood, with a 66-yard pass from Russell Wilson to Jalen Virgil, where Virgil streaked up the sideline for a touchdown. On the Titans next drive, they went for negative yards and punted away where the Broncos capitalized to extend their lead to 10-0 off a Brandon McManus field goal.  With 2:23 remaining in the first half though, the Titans knew they needed some points and in a long 13 play drive, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine was able to cap it off with a touchdown catch from the hands of Ryan Tannehill. The second half looked oddly familiar starting with a few punts, but the Titans completed a not so long drive, in fact, a very short three play drive, with a 63-yard pass from Tannehill to Westbrook-Ikhine that ended with a touchdown and a 10-14 lead. 

After sharing a couple of punts, rookie quarterback Malik Willis that came into the game decided to make it interesting as he fumbled the ball, and it was recovered by Denver in the fourth quarter. The Broncos were unable to capitalize with a good stand by the Titans defense, and then their offense used the momentum to get a field goal out of Randy Bullock. This theme continued to finish the game, as in a drive to attempt to win the game, Wilson threw a pass to Courtland Sutton, that was instead intercepted by the Titans to end the game with a Titans win 10-17.

Minnesota Vikings @ Buffalo Bills 

The Buffalo Bills welcomed the Minnesota Vikings to Highmark Stadium in a game that should be considered as an early Game of the Year contender. It had everything you could ask for, including suspense leading up to the game involving whether Josh Allen would play or not after suffering a UCL injury against the New York Jets. Allen did play, and the thrilling back-and-forth game began with the Vikings taking an early lead with Kirk Cousins finding Justin Jefferson. The Bills responded with their own scoring drive setup by a huge Duke Johnson kickoff return, the score came from Devin Singletary with his first rushing touchdown of the year. Both Cousins and Allen were clicking, leading to plenty of thrilling drives in the first half. The star wide receivers were on full display as Stefon Diggs made an amazing one-handed catch, and Justin Jefferson took an interception away from the Bills as he ripped it away for the reception. 

The second half woes for Buffalo continued, as they have not scored a touchdown after halftime since their game against the Kansas City Chiefs. An 81-yard touchdown run from Dalvin Cook, three-yard touchdown run from C.J. Ham, and Eric Kendricks recovering a fumble for a touchdown helped the Vikings capitalize on these struggles with a 30-27 lead. With 39 seconds left, Allen led the Bills down the field for Tyler Bass to hit a field goal, sending the game to overtime. The Vikings would score a field goal to open the overtime period. As Allen had the Bills driving down the field to score, he forced a throw which Patrick Peterson intercepted to end the game with the Vikings securing the 33-3 victory. (Marissa)

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Kansas City Chiefs 

It was a wild start to the game. The Chiefs turned the ball over a few times and for a second, maybe just maybe, Jacksonville had a chance. But before you knew it, Kansas City took over and put the game out of reach. The Jaguars made a fake comeback and had a few chances to possibly pull within a few points, but the Kansas City defense held on. The Chiefs would win by a score of 27-17 and with the win, now move into first place in the AFC. It wasn’t a great win, but at this point in the year, a win is a win. (Matt)
