The early season favorites for the major NFL awards stepped up their play again in Week 10, as some of the awards are narrowed down to just a handful of candidates.
Other awards are much less clear, but there's still seven weeks left for some players to make a statement.
Week 10 of the 2012 season was memorable for a number of reasons. The Atlanta Falcons, the last team standing with a perfect record, finally tasted defeat. The St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers played to the league's first tie since 2008. There were some upsets and a bunch of concussions.
Kansas City took Pittsburgh to overtime in Monday Night Football, only to come up short. Ben Roethlisberger left in the second half with a shoulder injury.
Speaking of injuries, there were some noteworthy concussions in Week 10 that impacted star players around the league. San Francisco QB Alex Smith, Philadelphia QB Michael Vick, Chicago QB Jay Cutler and Buffalo RB Fred Jackson all suffered concussions. Vick and Jackson are already declared out for Week 11, while Cutler and Smith await further tests.
