NFL Week 10 Told Through Gifs, Tweets and Instagrams

Chris Ivory's name came up in trade talk this season, after the last two games it's easy to see why a team would be interested in his services. He had 48 yards and a touchdown on only 10 carries in the New Orleans Saints' Monday night win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

On Sunday, he was even better with 72 yards on the ground. He got 56 yards on one very impressive carry.

That beastly effort kicks off the highlights of the 10th Sunday in the NFL season:

Ivory is swift nimble and powerful in this run:

Riley Cooper delivered the one-hand catch love for the Philadelphia Eagles:

Von Miller had fun at Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers' expense. First Miller mocks Newton's Superman celebration, then he gives this stirring safety dance.

To the victor goes the spoils:

Chris Johnson has quietly put together a decent season. The Titans rebound from a beating in Week 9 to deliver a beating to the Dolphins. CJ2K put this nice run into the mix:

Steven Jackson shows these men of will what will really is:

Here's the top stories from Week 10.

Eli's Implosion

Eli Manning played about as bad as humanly possible Sunday. What made Manning's struggles even more glaring was that his counterpart was great.

Andy Dalton led his team over the defending Super Bowl champions with four touchdown passes. Dalton only threw for 199 yards, but the yardage number would have been higher if Manning hadn't given the ball back to the Cincinnati Bengals with a short field three times.

Both of Manning's interceptions were his fault and the fumble he lost was as well.

This was a terrible performance by the New York Giants and Manning deserves the majority of the blame for this one.

The Bengals blast the Giants 31-13.

AP's Amazing Season Continues

The fact that Adrian Peterson is playing less than 12 months removed from a torn ACL is noteworthy. To be leading the NFL in rushing after Week 10 is downright amazing.

AP added to his legend on Sunday by becoming the first player to reach the 1,000-yard mark. He did it in grand fashion with 171 yards and a touchdown.

The score was a 61-yard romp that featured a high-stepping ending. The Vikings knocked off the Detroit Lions 34-24 to continue their surprising season.

The Vikings are firmly in the playoff picture at 6-4, and AP's play is one of the biggest reasons why.

Saints Last Stand

The Saints had to have a win, but that meant handing the Falcons their first loss. In front of their home fans, they got it done. They held off the Falcons 31-27 to keep any reasonable playoff hopes alive.

Drew Brees was—Drew Brees. The future hall-of-famer had 298 yards passing, three more passing touchdowns to bring his total to 25 on the season.

It is far too early to talk about this seeing as though the team is still only 4-5, but if the Saints make the playoffs, doesn't Brees deserve some MVP consideration?

NFC East Desperation

Both the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles needed this game badly, but only the Dallas Cowboys could halt the futility. The Boys won this one 38-23.

The Eagles lost quarterback Mike Vick to a concussion, per Comcast Philadelphia, they lost the game and they may be turning their head coach loose sometime soon.

This five-game losing streak will just about shut the door on the Eagles' playoff hopes for the second year in a row. They may need to win out—or at the very least finish 6-1 in the final seven games—to have a shot at the postseason.

That wasn't what the team had in mind when they shelled out major dough to sign Vick, Nnamdi Asomugha, Jason Babin and others.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys stay alive in an interesting NFC East.

Shootout in Foxboro


The Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots played another memorable and entertaining game. Ryan Fitzpatrick matched Tom Brady throw for throw until the end.

With a chance to win the game late, Fitzpatrick was picked-off in the end zone by Devin McCourty. Fitzpatrick went for 337 passing yards and two touchdowns to only 237 yards and two scores for Brady.

The Patriots hold off the Bills 37-31, but they have to be concerned about their defense.

They didn't tackle or cover well in this game, and they were lucky to escape with a win. The Bills had out-gained them 481 to 347, but shot themselves in the foot with three turnovers.
