Week 10 of the NFL will provide a glimpse of clarity into which teams are the best in the league; actually, maybe it won’t—there will be touchdowns scored though.

Which players will find the end zone the most in Week 10?

Look no further.

*Quarterbacks not included


Buffalo at Dallas:

DeMarco Murray will rush for two touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo allows over 120 yards on the ground per game, but that number will only go up after Murray is done with them Sunday.


New Orleans at Atlanta:

Michael Turner will also find the end zone twice, as the New Orleans Saints will struggle to bring him down.


Pittsburgh at Cincinnati:

Wideout Antonio Brown has the best chance on the field of scoring multiple TDs. However, he’ll only score once on Sunday in a low-scoring affair. Both defenses in this contest are better than the opposing offenses.


Washington at Miami:

Brandon Marshall won’t be stopped this week. Matt Moore has targeted him 39 times in the last four weeks, resulting in 24 catches for 331 yards. Marshall will find the pay dirt twice on Sunday.


St. Louis at Cleveland:

Running back Chris Ogbonnaya will be the shining star of this matchup. The St. Louis Rams have the worst run defense in the league and the Cleveland Browns are desperate to score. Two TDs for Ogbonnaya sounds about right.


Houston at Tampa Bay:

Until Andre Johnson returns, Arian Foster is the king in Houston. Foster will torch the Bucs' shoddy run defense for three touchdowns, two of which will be on the ground. He’ll gain 200 yards to go with it.


Tennessee at Carolina:

Tight end Greg Olsen will surprise many by walking off the field after two touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans have allowed five touchdowns to tight ends in the past five weeks.


Arizona at Philadelphia:

It’s hard to predict who Michael Vick will target in the passing game, but DeSean Jackson will score his first long touchdown of the season against the defenseless Arizona Cardinals. Did I say touchdown? I meant two long TDs.


Denver at Kansas City:

Dwayne Bowe had five multi-touchdown games last season, and he’ll get his second of this year, scoring three TDs against the Denver Broncos and their 23rd-ranked pass defense.


Jacksonville at Indianapolis:

Peyton…I’m just kidding. Maurice Jones-Drew will take out his frustrations on the Indianapolis Colts, rushing for two touchdowns against the second-worst run defense in the league.


Baltimore at Seattle:

Ray Rice will score twice against the Seattle Seahawks—once on the ground and once through the air. Rice will be the only player the Seahawks aren’t able to contain.


Detroit at Chicago:

None other than Calvin Johnson will be the top scoring presence in this game. His two TD catches will prove that no one in the league can slow him down—not even Brian Urlacher and the Chicago Bears defense.


New York Giants at San Francisco:

Frank Gore will be the hero for the San Francisco 49ers, fighting his way to the end zone twice against the New York Giants. He’ll seal the deal with a fourth quarter TD after an Eli Manning interception.


New England at New York Jets:

Plaxico Burress will continue to impress in a New York Jets uniform by decorating the end zone with his presence twice on Sunday. The New England secondary will not have answers for the Jets' weapons at wide receiver.


Minnesota at Green Bay:

Aaron Rodgers could throw touchdowns to my great aunt with his arm, but he’ll focus on his tight end Jermichael Finley this week. Finley has been targeted in the red zone 10 times this season, which is the most on the team. Chalk up Finley for two TDs on Monday night.
