Sports is really a game of inches and the NFL is no different. One week you're going toe-to-toe with the best-of-the-best and the following week you can't find your way around a team struggling for survival.

The New England Patriots led by their distinguished quarterback (QB) Tom Brady found a way to beat the Green Bay Packers in Week 9 and returned in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans with a performance to forget. In fact, the 24 first-half points scored by the Titans are by far the most first half points scored by the team and the most allowed by the Patriots this season. Brady, despite throwing for 254 yards, couldn't find the end zone and was on his heels for most of the 34-10 beatdown.

The Kansas City Chiefs, Chicago Bears, New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams had important wins over the Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, Cincinnati Bengals and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, but the surprisingly entertaining encounter of Week 10 occurred on Sunday night between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles entered the game as JustBet seven-point favourites but their opponents had other ideas. The Cowboys jumped out to an early lead and held off a resilient Philadelphia team late in the fourth quarter for a 27-20 win. Coming off their bye week, the Eagles looked slow and lethargic early, and when the offence finally got it together, the defence remained slow and lethargic.

Dallas QB Dak Prescott, with newly acquired wide receiver Amari Cooper, had a pretty good day with 270 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. Running back Ezekiel Elliott, however, had a monster evening. He rushed for 151 yards on 19 carries (7.9 YPC), including a touchdown, and added another 36 receiving yards on six catches and another score. The Cowboys, who were embarrassed the week before by the Titans, have placed themselves in contention in the division with a 4-5 record (equal to that of the Eagles).

Week 11 will have its fair share of high-octane action and, as fate would have it, the last three games of the weekend are the most anticipated. The New Orleans Saints welcome the Eagles into their backyard late Sunday afternoon, and given the current form of the home team and the performance of the away team in Week 10, JustBet has set Philadelphia as a nine-point underdog. This is justified, to say the least, and betting against the Saints this week would be ill-advised.

The Chicago Bears take on the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night with Minnesota playing in desperation mode. The Bears have been steadily improving and have lost some very close games, while the Vikings have been disappointing but still boast a potent offensive threat and a formidable defence. This is expected to be very close, but Chicago should take advantage of home field and pull out a win.

On Monday night the Los Angeles Rams open their doors for the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams take their 9-1 records going into this encounter with the knowledge that 9-2 is a distinct possibility when the dust settles. This is looking like a toss-up for the Chiefs, but the Rams are at home and have the ability to pile up points in less than a quarter. The expectation is for a shootout between these highly talented teams and JustBet has set the scoreline to 63 points — it is highly possible that this will be surpassed.

The LA Rams held on for a well-earned victory last week and maintain as $4.00 JustBet favourites to win the Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints now enjoying sole second-favourite position at $4.75. The Kansas City Chiefs slide into the third favourite spot at $5.50 leaving the New England Patriots, based on their 'aged' performance last week, fading into the fourth favourite spot at $7.00.
