Week 10 NFL game watchability rankings

Week 10 in the NFL is here, and you might be entering the weekend with your own preferences regarding which games to focus on, and which to place on the backburner.

Most of you have your favorites and fantasy players to track. But in case you’re completely neutral or need help breaking ties with regard to what to watch, we’ve ranked all 14 games from most appealing to least enticing.

1. Patriots at Giants (Sunday, 4 p.m. ET, CBS): The Giants ruined New England’s perfect season in 2007 and interrupting the dynasty in 2011. What can they do in 2015? Every four years, man…

2. Cardinals at Seahawks (Sunday night, NBC): Can Arizona actually come through and win the NFC West this year? A win in Seattle in prime time would pretty much wrap it up. Should be a tightly-contested battle, and it’ll be nice to see MVP contender Carson Palmer on national TV.

3. Vikings at Raiders (Sunday, 4 p.m. ET, FOX): Didn’t think this Super Bowl rematch would be so fun back in August, but both of these intriguing teams are playoff contenders. Plenty of emerging and proven stars on both sides of the ball, too.

4. Bills at Jets (Thursday night, NFL Network): The winner will be at least tied for a wild-card spot entering the home stretch. Great defensive matchup with plenty of stars as Rex Ryan returns to MetLife Stadium.

5. Texans at Bengals (Monday night, ESPN): The race to a perfect season continues on Monday Night Football. Don’t be surprised if J.J. Watt and the Texans put up a fight coming off their bye.

6. Cowboys at Buccaneers (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, FOX): Dallas is still depleted so this should be a close one, and Jameis Winston is simply a draw right now. Still, not an appointment game.

7. Panthers at Titans (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, FOX): Carolina is naturally a draw right now and Marcus Mariota is worth checking out. But this might be a blowout.

8. Saints at Redskins (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, FOX): Neither team is going to the playoffs, but we should have a lot of points in a close game here.

9. Chiefs at Broncos (Sunday, 4 p.m. ET, CBS): Expecting a blowout.

10. Jaguars at Ravens (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS): This young, exciting Jags team is wicked to watch, but they’ll have their hands full in Baltimore, especially with the Ravens coming off their bye. Keep an eye on this if it remains close.

11. Browns at Steelers (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS): Pittsburgh should be an interesting case without, like, everybody on offense. But the Browns haven’t won there in over a decade, so only tune in if it’s within reach.

12. Bears at Rams (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS): Chicago has bounced back but St. Louis could run away with this at home. Only check out if it’s close or if Todd Gurley is going off.

13. Dolphins at Eagles (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS): Miami lacks sex appeal and could be in trouble in this spot.

14. Lions at Packers (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, FOX): Detroit hasn’t won at Lambeau since 1991 and Aaron Rodgers hasn’t lost three straight games since 2008, so this should be a blowout and can probably be ignored.
