Ravens bye week: What went down in the NFL Week 10
The Baltimore Ravens were off this Sunday. Here is what went down in the NFL week 10:
The football week got off to an uncomfortable sight for Baltimore Ravens fans. Fresh off their 23-16 win over the Ravens, the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Carolina Panthers 52-21. Ben Roethlisberger went off for 328 yards and five touchdowns in a game where he only threw three incomplete passes. The game got out of hand early, and many Ravens fans probably didn’t watch much after the Cam Newton pick six or the 70 yard initial score by JuJu Smith-Schuster,
Cleveland got another win to celebrate as they beat the Atlanta Falcons 28-16. The Browns defense throttled Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense. The highlights of the game though went to Baker Mayfield, who had three touchdowns.
The next opponent for Baltimore, the Cincinnati Bengals, lost 51-14 to the New Orleans Saints. The Bengals scored one of those touchdowns in garbage time when Jeff Driskel scored a rushing touchdown as the backup quarterback.
It was a good day for the NFL elite. Kansas City extended their record to 9-1 and so did the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams had maybe the most entertaining game of the week 10 slate. The Rams won a thriller, 36-31. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks had a chance with the football in the final minute, but the game essentially ended with their turnover on downs. The Saints as mentioned before beat the Bengals badly.
The one NFL contender that didn’t fare so well was the New England Patriots, who struggled all day long against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans won the game 34-10. The same Titans team that the Ravens dominated to the tune of 21-10 beat the 7-2 Patriots. This just goes to show that anything can happen in the NFL.
The NFC East had an interesting week. Washington beat Tampa Bay 16-3. The Washington defense did most of the heavy lifting in this game. It was a big win for the NFC East leader. The Giants have yet to play, as they take on the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. The Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 in the Sunday finale. It was a back and forth game that deserved the national audience.
