NFL Scores Week 10: Box Scores for Top Fantasy Stars on Sunday

It's impossible to predict what will happen on Sundays in the NFL and in fantasy football these days, and Week 10 was a perfect example of why this is true. 

Nobody predicted St. Louis would own Indianapolis this weekend, and it was just as shocking that rookie Tavon Austin broke out with his monster fantasy day. 

Oh, and for good measure, the Jacksonville Jaguars shocked the Tennessee Titans, winning 29-27:

It was the first win of the season for the Jags—much to the dismay of experts everywhere who have watched the team flounder like a fish out of water all year long. 

Of course, there were a few expected occurrences, like Seattle romping over the hapless Atlanta Falcons and Brandon Marshall piling up big numbers against the Detroit Lions.    

But for the most part, the action in Week 10 proved the NFL is a league of parity and surprises.

Here's a look at the scores for Sunday's games, followed by the box stats for the top stars and an examination of the top performers in each game. 

Note: Late games will be added as they conclude.


Seattle Seahawks Atlanta Falcons 33-10
Detroit Lions Chicago Bears 21-19
Philadelphia Eagles Green Bay Packers 27-13
Jacksonville Jaguars Tennessee Titans 29-27
St. Louis Rams Indianapolis Colts 38-8
New York Giants Oakland Raiders 24-20
Pittsburgh Steelers Buffalo Bills 23-10
Baltimore Ravens Cincinnati Bengals 20-17 (OT)
Carolina Panthers San Francisco 49ers 10-9
Denver Broncos San Diego Chargers 28-20
Arizona Cardinals Houston Texans 27-24

Detroit Outlasts Chicago to Take NFC North Lead

The Green Bay Packers are reeling after losing quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was lost for four to six weeks with a fractured clavicle, as noted by Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports:

Not surprisingly, Green Bay lost on Sunday to the Philadelphia Eagles, opening up a huge opportunity for either the Detroit Lions or Chicago Bears to take the undisputed lead atop the NFC North.

Jay Cutler made his return to the starting lineup for this contest after missing the team's previous one-and-a-half contests with a groin injury. He played fairly well, throwing a touchdown and an interception, before leaving the game in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury, as the Bears reported on Twitter:

In his stead, Josh McCown was called into action once again after he'd played so well during Cutler's absence. He came into the game with his team down eight points with two minutes and 22 seconds remaining on the clock.

Matthew Stafford had previously engineered a nine-play, 74-yard scoring drive that culminated with a 14-yard touchdown strike to Calvin Johnson to put the Lions up by that margin, and Detroit's defense had played well the entire game. 

But McCown drove the Bears down the field on a 10-play, 66-yard drive that ended with an 11-yard touchdown strike to Brandon Marshall to pull the Bears to within two points.

All they needed was a two-point conversion to tie the game, but the Lions stuffed the attempt. In reality, the Lions stuffed two attempts, as the Bears received another chance after a roughing-the-passer penalty was called. 

But running back Matt Forte was stoned at the line of scrimmage on the second attempt:

Detroit now sits atop the NFC North all by itself with a record of 6-3, and the Lions appear to have the inside track at claiming the highly competitive division at the end of the season.

Nick Foles Continues Improving Fantasy Stock

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

After throwing seven touchdown passes last weekend, Nick Foles has nowhere to go but down.

However, he played exceptionally well again on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, passing for 228 yards with three touchdowns, and more importantly, zero interceptions. 

For the season, Foles has now passed for 16 touchdowns and zero interceptions. His 10 touchdown passes in the last two games makes him the first Eagles quarterback to achieve that mark, and it's the first time it's happened in the NFL since Tom Brady did it back in 2007, according to Fox Sports: NFL:

Even better, the Eagles have won four of the five games in which he has started, and it seems clear he's going to be the man behind center for Philly the rest of the season. 

If you're not on the Foles train in fantasy football, now's the time to jump on board. The Eagles appear to be surging just in time for the playoff push, and he's the conductor.
