Week 10 NFL Gameday: The Steel City Skirmish
[lead align=”default”]This isn’t the greatest slate of games in the world, but the Week 10 NFL gameday features a key game in Pittsburgh.[/lead]
The home team Steelers host the Dallas Cowboys, and the game means big things for each. In the case of Dallas, this is an opportunity to go 8-1 and put a chokehold on the NFC East. Not only that, put their status as the NFC’s best team would be assured. As for the Steelers, they have to have it. Baltimore won and is in first place, and Pittsburgh simply needs to keep up in the AFC North.
Don’t call this a Super Bowl preview or anything, just a replay of a few previous ones. There’s a long way to go, but this is an important game, and in Week 10, importance increases. Here are a few other games of note in this set:
Week 10 NFL Gameday: Minnesota at Washington
The Vikings were once the class of the NFC, and now they struggle for survival. That’s what a losing streak of any notable length does to you in the NFL. Not only is Minnesota in the midst of three straight losses, they’ve looked pretty bad in so doing.
Washington comes off a bye following their endeavor in London, and they’re trying not to fade away in the NFC East.
Week 10 NFL Gameday: Denver at New Orleans
Look at New Orleans: they started the season 0-3 and now find themselves as winners of four out of five. Drew Brees is as good as ever and his Saints face the defending Super Bowl champs, not looking champion-like lately. Sure, Denver is 6-3, but lost their previous two road games.
The Broncos allegedly still have a great defense, but it needs to show up at the Superdome. Given the state of the Saints defense, this is a potential slugfest.
Week 10 NFL Gameday: Seattle at New England
Though not undefeated, the Pats are one of the most unstoppable teams in the NFL. One expects that if Tom Brady wasn’t suspended, they might be 8-0. In any event, they can be 8-1 by this time tomorrow and they plan on it.
Seattle is a fine team and this Super Bowl XLIX rematch seems like an interesting game. Nevertheless, New England seems to have everyone’s number and it’s hard for an opponent to win in Foxboro.
