We're hovering around those crucial weeks in the National Football League when teams with the contender label make their playoff push, while the more unfortunate teams flat out collapse. Then there are those teams entrenched within the muck at the bottom of the league.
Week 10 and beyond provides spectators a barometer for how all of these teams plan or intend to finish out the year. These outcomes may hinge on their playoff seedings or where they will be drafting in April.
