As top teams continue their ascent to Super Bowl contention and bottom feeders continue their inevitable nosedive toward top pick status, great games are going to become fewer and farther between on the NFL schedule.

Thankfully, we still haven't quite hit that point coming into Week 10, as there are a few fantastic games on the slate on Sunday. Battles between heated division rivalries with playoff implications and perhaps the crowning of a Super Bowl favorite are both in store, which means you won't want to miss a minute of NFL action this weekend.

The scheduling gods must have had all of this planned, considering each of the best contests are spaced out enough to where fans can watch everything unfold. 

With that in mind, here is a look at when and where you can watch all of Sunday's biggest games, along with a preview of each contest.


Atlanta Falcons (8-0) at New Orleans Saints (3-5)

Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA

When: Sunday, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. ET

Watch: Fox

Stream: NFL Sunday Ticket

Sitting pretty with a four-game lead in the NFC South, the only remaining questions for the Atlanta Falcons seems to be how long they can stay undefeated and whether they will get a No. 1 or No. 2 seed in the conference. 

Well, look for the former question to be answered on Sunday.

Though the 2012 season has been anything but ideal for the New Orleans Saints, there were plenty of positive signs for the team last week. The defense reinstituted its formerly aggressive schemes, blitzing Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick regularly and sacking him seven times. 

While Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense is far superior to the struggling bunch in Philadelphia, look for the Saints to come out aggressive again on Sunday. It may backfire in some spots, which could lead to a huge touchdown pass to Julio Jones or Roddy White.

However, expect New Orleans to produce a late-game turnover that will make the difference in a shootout. Saints win in what should be one of Week 10's most exciting contests.

Score Prediction: Saints 31, Falcons 28


Dallas Cowboys (3-5) at Philadelphia Eagles (3-5)

Where: Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pa.

When: Sunday, Nov. 11 at 4:25 p.m. ET

Watch: Fox

Stream: NFL Sunday Ticket

While Saints-Falcons should be a down-to-the-wire thriller, Sunday's late-afternoon tilt between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles will be captivating for pure schadenfreudian reasons. 

Well, unless you're a fan of either squad, then watching this game will be masochism in its finest form. Both teams are abundantly talented, inconsistently quarterbacked and incompetently coached to the point where the losing team might as well pack up its season. 

All of that essentially means that the Eagles and Cowboys will face off in easily the most unpredictable matchup of Week 10. We could see a vintage performance from either Tony Romo or Michael Vick, as both showed limited signs of life last week. 

When it comes down to brass tax, Dallas has shown more fight against stronger competition. No team in the NFL has played a harder schedule than the Cowboys this season, and their last three losses have come by just one score. 

It's impossible to feel any sense of confidence with this pick, but Dallas should take a close one on the road.

Score Prediction: Cowboys 24, Eagles 21


Houston Texans (7-1) at Chicago Bears (7-1)

Where: Soldier Field in Chicago, Ill.

When: Sunday, Nov. 11 at 8:30 p.m. ET

Watch: NBC

Stream: SNF All-Access

The death bells will toll for one team in Philadelphia, but Chicago may see the coronation of the NFL's best team.

The Houston Texans and Chicago Bears come in with just one loss, having destroyed top-tier and bottom-tier opponents at the season's halfway mark.

On paper, Houston has perhaps the AFC's most complete team. Behind the brilliant ground game led by Arian Foster and stalwart play of J.J. Watt on the defensive line, the Texans rank 12th in the NFL in offense and third in the league defensively.

Meanwhile, the Bears defense is one of the best in recent memory, according to Football Outsiders' weighted DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) metric. 

This will almost certainly regress somewhat to the mean over time. Chicago cannot continue its unprecedented rate of defensive touchdowns, which will undoubtedly bring the defense back to the pack somewhat.

Expect that regression to start on Sunday. Houston's offense has been incredibly efficient this season, turning the ball over an NFL-low six times thus far. 

Couple that with the inconsistency of Jay Cutler and the Bears offense, and the Texans should win, overtaking most pundits' top spot in the Week 11 power rankings in the process. 

Score Prediction: Texans 24, Bears 14
