Week 10 in the NFL started off with the Pittsburgh Steelers dominating the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football. That was one of only two games this week in which both teams enter the matchup with winning records. The other comes this afternoon when the Cincinnati Bengals play host to the New Orleans Saints.The Steelers made the Panthers look silly and we wouldn’t be all that surprised to see the Saints do the same to the Bengals. With that said Black Calvin Ridley Jersey , this is an important game for Cincinnati as they need to play catch up with the Steelers in the AFC North. Here are six games in Week 10 that could have the biggest impact on the remainder of the 2018 season.1. New Orleans Saints at Cincinnati BengalsThe Bengals come into this game with a 5-3 record and need to get every win possible to keep up with the 6-2-1 Steelers who have won five straight games. Despite having just one loss, the Saints only have a slim hold of first place in the NFC South at 7-1. That’s because prior to getting throttled by the Steelers, the Panthers had been on a roll and are 6-3 and in second place in the division. In addition to needing all the wins they can get, the Bengals defense is in jeopardy of becoming the first-ever NFL defense to allow three straight 500-yard games. The Bengals allowed 576 yards against the Buccaneers in Week 8 and 551 yards against the Chiefs the week prior. Cincinnati had a bye week to rest up and prepare for New Orleans but Drew Brees and Co. are averaging 402 yards per game and it’s entirely possible (if not likely) that the Saints force the Bengals into making NFL history in embarrassing fashion. 2. Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis ColtsThe AFC South is looking like the Texans’ to lose as they lead the division with a 6-3 record. That’s two games better than the 4-4 Titans and three games ahead of both the Colts and Jaguars who have 3-5 records. But if these two teams want to make up ground, it starts in a division game this week with running back Leonard Fournette returning to action for Jacksonville.The Colts started the year 1-5 but have won their last two games and are trying to defy history by making the playoffs after rough start. The loser of this game won’t officially be out of the playoff race, but it will be a bad sign for their postseason hopes.3. Washington at Tampa Bay BuccaneersWashington leads the NFC East with a 5-3 record but the team just placed three starters on injured reserve and have the Eagles are knocking on their door (more on that in a minute). Washington’s lead in the division could quickly disappear if they don’t beat the weaker teams on their schedule, like the Buccaneers who have only three wins this season. After Tampa Bay, Washington has games against the Texans and then three straight division games against the Cowboys, Eagles, and Giants. This is nearly a must-win game for Jay Gruden’s squad.4. Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia EaglesThe Cowboys don’t seem destined to be a playoff team, but crazier things have happened than a 3-5 Dallas team finding a way to make it into the playoffs. That’s especially true considering Washington’s health situation and the Eagles’ up-and-down play this year. With that said, Philly had a great bye week as they watched both Washington and Dallas lose in Week 9. Of course an NFC East brawl is a primetime game and this Sunday Night Football matchup could go a long way toward determining the winner of the division.5. Miami Dolphins at Green Bay PackersThe Dolphins started the season hot, but the Patriots are cruising toward winning the AFC East for the 10th straight year. Miami is likely going to need to secure a wild card seed to get into the playoffs. They’re currently behind the Bengals and Chargers (who have what should be an easy matchup with the Raiders this week) in the standings. The Packers have had an unexpected first half of the season as they’re in third place in the NFC North behind the Bears and Vikings. Complicating matters further is their tie with Minnesota from earlier this year. The Packers have the 11th-ranked offense, which is pretty shocking considering Aaron Rodgers is their quarterback and all. He has the sixth-most passing yards in the league, but the 13th-highest passer rating, and only six starting quarterbacks have a worse completion percentage (four of whom are rookies). Aaron Rodgers just hasn’t really seemed like Aaron Rodgers in 2018. 6. Detroit Lions at Chicago BearsThe third division matchup on this list features the NFC North’s fourth-place Lions who are traveling to take on the first-place Bears. Chicago’s offense has been scoring at the sixth-highest rate in the league while the Lions rank 20th in that regard. When it comes to defense, the Bears are a top five unit while the Lions are right around the league average. On paper, you’d expect the Bears to win this game, but in a divisional matchup anything is possible. If the Lions want to keep their playoff hopes alive Keanu Neal Jersey 2019 , they must win this game. The NFC North is still anyone’s to win, but the Bears have the edge heading into this afternoon’s slate of games.Sunday’s Week 10 NFL scheduleDetroit Lions at Chicago Bears, 1 p.m. (FOX)New Orleans Saints at Cincinnati Bengals, 1 p.m. (FOX)Atlanta Falcons at Cleveland Browns, 1 p.m. (FOX)Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m. (CBS)Arizona Cardinals at Kansas City Chiefs, 1 p.m. (CBS)Buffalo Bills at New York Jets, 1 p.m. (CBS)Washington at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1 p.m. (FOX)New England Patriots at Tennessee Titans, 1 p.m. (CBS)Los Angeles Chargers at Oakland Raiders, 4:05 p.m. (FOX)Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams, 4:25 p.m. (CBS)Miami Dolphins at Green Bay Packers, 4:25 p.m. (CBS)Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles, 8:20 p.m. (NBC) In Tyson Chandler’s first game after signing with the Los Angeles Lakers, he hit the game-winner to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves. Only, Chandler’s game-winner wasn’t a dunk. It wasn’t even a basket, or a play that resulted in one. Instead, it was a typical moment the veteran big man has repeated time and time again across his career.The Lakers held a one-point lead with just a minute remaining, but the Wolves had surged back thanks to an unconscious three-point shooting night from Derrick Rose. At that point Takkarist McKinley Jersey 2019 , Rose was 7-of-8 from three and had scored Minnesota’s last nine points. If he got the ball back on the next possession, all the momentum in the world was in his favor.But when LeBron James chucked up and clanked a three off the rim with around 46 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Chandler came to the rescue. He tapped the rebound into the back court, giving the Lakers a fresh 14 seconds on the shot clock.James took time off the clock, then drove the lane to create an open look for Kyle Kuzma. When Kuzma missed his three, Chandler was too much of a handful for Rose and Andrew Wiggins to contain on the glass. They had two choices: allow him to grab the offensive rebound, or knock it away from him out of bounds. They chose the latter. Lakers’ ball, with another fresh 14 seconds.On Los Angeles’ final possession, James hoisted up and missed yet another three-pointer. But Chandler got away with mauling Karl-Anthony Towns, then tapped the ball back out to the three-point line for his teammates to recover.Chandler created three additional possessions in the final minute of the game, turning a 24-second shot clock into almost 50 seconds. That left Minnesota just nine ticks when they should have had an entire possession, maybe two, to win the game.Look at how pumped Chandler was to secure a win for his team. This is a man who knows his value, and he doesn’t need to score to validate it.This is exactly what the doctor orderedJaVale McGee has been outstanding early in the season, but the Lakers didn’t have another legitimate center on the roster after him. We’d see Los Angeles run small lineups with James at the center. That’s not where you want James, even if he has the size, strength, speed, and athleticism to play any position on the floor.That’s no longer necessary now that Chandler is around. In addition to allowing the Lakers to play 48 minutes with a big man on the floor Black Keanu Neal Jersey , Chandler also provides several intangibles.LeBron James has risen above winningRead the rest of Tom Ziller’s essay here.In landing Chandler, Los Angeles gets a culture-setter that was being wasted on a woeful Suns team. You’re not going to be on the floor loafing on defense if this guy’s around. Los Angeles is getting a rebounding machine. Chandler grabbed nine rebounds in 23 minutes against the Timberwolves, and five of them came on the offensive glass.Of course, the Lakers are also getting a rim protector. One of their biggest needs early into the season had been interior defense — Los Angeles is second to only Phoenix in opponent points in the paint per game. That projects to change with a motivated Chandler patrolling the middle.And Los Angeles is getting one of the best low-post defenders available in the league. Back-to-the-basket scorers have become somewhat of a pariah, but Chandler’s presence neutralized Towns on the block, and his gifts will be helpful against Western Conference foes like Nikola Jokic, Jusuf Nurkic, LaMarcus Aldridge, Clint Capela, and DeMarcus Cousins (when he returns).Chandler is also another veteran, adding to James and Rajon Rondo as the elder statesmen in this young Lakers’ locker room. He’s a different voice for those young guys, too. And of course, he’s a champion. Chandler was integral in Mavericks’ 2011 title run. He helped beat James’ Miami Heat, and defeating James in any setting is no easy task.The Lakers still have other problems to sort out. They could use more offensive production out of the point guard slot, and Luke Walton’s player rotations can be more consistent. But Chandler projects to help Los Angeles in their two biggest weaknesses: defense and rebounding.He was a great pickup by Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka.
