NFL Week 10 Winners and Losers

Some of the winners in Week 10 include Tim Tebow, Tom Brady, Carson Palmer, John Skelton, and Alex Smith.

The big losers were the Ravens, the Jets, the Chiefs, the Bucs,and the Lions.

Tebow only completed two passes but one of them was a 56 yard TD to WR Eric Decker on a 3rd and 11 play.

The Broncos lost their top two RBs to injuries early in the game and the Chiefs still could not stop the Broncos from running on them. The injuries to the Chiefs' star players like Jamaal Charles, Tony Moeki, and Eric Berry are catching up to them.

Kansas City's offense doesn't scare anyone right now and their WRs keep dropping passes as well. Another big reason the Chiefs are struggling so bad on offense is because they lost their offensive coordinator Charlie Weis.

Weis is now calling plays for the Florida Gators and he was a big part of the success the Chiefs had in 2010.

The Jets had their best chance to beat the Patriots last night because the Patriots' defense has been horrendous due to injuries. The Patriots had so many new guys in the back seven on defense and Tom Brady had been struggling in his last two games.

This was supposed to be the night that the Jets show that they are the AFC East favorites and Super Bowl contenders. What did they do? They laid an egg and lost 37-16.

Brady was fantastic and threw for three TDs and 329 yards. Jets' QB Mark Sanchez threw two interceptions and was only 20-39 for the evening against the league's worst passing defense.

Now the Jets have to go to Denver and face Tebow and the Broncos on Thursday night. This game is no gimme for the Jets. The key to beating the Broncos is to get out to a two-score lead and make Tebow pass the ball.

The Raiders could be the favorites to win the AFC West now. Palmer looked great on Thursday night vs. the Chargers. The Raider will take on the Vikings in Minnesota next week.

Does Arizona have a QB controversy now? John Skelton played very well against the Eagles yesterday and Kevin Kolb has struggled this season. The Eagles are now 3-6 after the 21-17 loss and Michael Vick has struggled recently. This was the biggest upset yesterday as the Eagles were 13-point favorites.

Are the Houston Texans Super Bowl contenders? They have a great defense and a powerful offense. They demolished the Bucs in Tampa yesterday 37-9. The Bucs are the most undisciplined team I have seen all season and they don't play hard at times too. I have seen this team quit in many games.

One of the problems the Bucs have is their youth. They are the youngest team in the NFL. I am sure the fans will be calling for Raheem Morris to be fired soon.

The Ravens won against the Steelers in dramatic fashion and then have a letdown game vs. the Seahawks in Seattle. They were on such an emotional high a week ago and they could not get ready for a lowly team like the Seahawks.

This is the same team that beat the Steelers at home in their first game of the season and then lost the next game to the Titans.

The 49ers are legit Super Bowl contenders and Alex Smith showed everyone that he can lead the team in a victory without Frank Gore as the 49ers beat the Giants 27-20. Smith was 19-30 for 242 yards with one TD and one interception. The interception was the fault of WR Ted Ginn who let the ball hit his helmet.

The Lions have not lost three of their last four games and their 5-0 start is a distant memory now.
