Week 10 felt like a speed bump in the season. There wasn't a great game on the slate, and though a few interesting things happened on the field (as always), I don't see much we'll care about in a month or two. Okay, the Marinelli Lions can finally pop the cork. I suppose that's something.

The only potential playoff preview was Carolina's slobberknocker victory at San Francisco, a game that was difficult to watch. I felt like Vernon Davis at the end of that one, dazed and confused. No one doubts the ferocity of Carolina's defense, but why can't Cam Newton play well, for once, in one of these critical games?

Week 11 brings the noise. New England at Carolina is fascinating, a payback for all the lousy Monday games we've slogged through. Can San Francisco get off the mat and win at New Orleans, where the Saints once again look unbeatable? And then there's Denver finally giving Kansas City a test. Don't laugh, but it's pretty much a must-win for the Broncos; lose, and they're staring a No. 5 seed squarely in the face. Does the Chiefs pass rush have a chance to get to Peyton Manning?

The undercard isn't bad, either. Can backup quarterbacks keep things afloat for Chicago and Green Bay? Is there any logical explanation to Indianapolis' mess last week? Will Philadelphia ever win another home game?
