The NFL is wrapping up the 1 p.m. ET slate in Week 10, and the favorites are mostly handling their business. The Chiefs beat the Jaguars, the Giants beat the Texans, and the Dolphins handled the Browns. The Bills are trying to fend off the Vikings as we speak, but Minnesota has driven deep into Buffalo territory.

UPDATE: That Bills-Vikings game was wild with Minnesota winning in overtime after Josh Allen threw an interception from the Vikings 20.

It’s been a wild year of upsets, but the biggest upset thus far in Week 10 was the Panthers beating the Falcons on Thursday. The Steelers beating the Saints is a betting upset, but given the Saints’ struggles this season, it’s not exactly a stunner.

Below are the eight divisional standings, along with some quick thoughts about each division after ten weeks of football. We’ll update again after the 4 p.m. games, and then again after Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football.
