After a snoozefest of games in Week 9, many football fans were left salivating over the Thursday night college football games this week, which include two top-10 mathcups: Oklahoma at Baylor and Oregon at Stanford. That’s especially true considering the Thursday Night Football contest in the NFL is a snoozefest between the lowly Minnesota Vikings and annoyingly inconsistent Washington Redskins. However, don’t get mad at pro football just yet because relief is right around the corner.

There are a handful of contests in the NFL that should turn out to be nail-biters this Sunday, including several with huge playoff implications. Yes, it’s possible for games to have huge playoff implications this “early” in the season. Don’t believe us? Watch the reaction to the Sunday Night Football game, especially if the visiting team wins. Sure, that’s unlikely, but it’s always possible with the most polarizing franchise in all of pro sports.

Here are the top five NFL games to watch in Week 10:

5. Bengals at Ravens

The Bengals at the Ravens is an AFC North rivalry game that is always entertaining, regardless of the circumstances. Considering this is a must-win game for Baltimore, expect the Ravens to pull out all the stops in a close one.

4. Lions at Bears

The Lions at the Bears is now even more intriguing since Jay Cutler will be back under center for Chicago. Both passing games are clicking and assuming Cutler is truly healthy, this should be a shootout.

3. Panthers at 49ers

The Panthers at the 49ers is a game that features an unstoppable force and an immovable object. Carolina is the NFL’s hottest team, but they haven’t played anyone worth noting this year. That will change in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon.

2. Broncos at Chargers

The Broncos at the Chargers should be another game that features about 80 combined points. Both teams have electric offenses and sketchy secondaries, so expect Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers to light up the scoreboard all day.

1. Cowboys at Saints

The Cowboys at the Saints will make waiting all day for Sunday night worth it as these two dynamic NFC offenses square off in what will certainly be a shootout. And when Tony Romo is involved in such contests, all bets are off.
