The Mondays: Giants, Titans reign supreme over everyone else

Week 10 had it's fair share of excitement on Sunday.

SUNDAY NIGHT RECAP: New York Giants 36 - Philadelphia Eagles 24- Consider this, the Giants were 6-3, coming off a loss to the Dallas Cowboys at home. After Sunday night, the Giants are 8-1, coming off a win on the road against the Eagles. If you take away the hiccup against Cleveland, the Giants are 9-0. This team is without a doubt the best in the NFC. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Giants struggle as they progress further into the season. Their next three games are against Baltimore, Arizona and Washington, both on the road.

Tennessee Titans 21 - Chicago Bears 14- So the Titans are now 9-0 for the first time in franchise history. They are the top dog in the AFC and they only need four wins to wrap up the AFC South. A win at Jacksonville on Sunday will surely help them.

Minnesota Vikings 28 - Green Bay Packers 27- A Mason Crosby missed field goal late in the game made the difference. For the most part, the game was played sloppily. Crosby missed a 52-yard field goal with less than 30 seconds left. The Vikings scored two safeties and it made the difference in the long run. The Vikings needed this win to keep with the Packers and Bears in the NFC North picture.

Indianapolis Colts 24 - Pittsburgh Steelers 20- The Colts scored a big win on Sunday, defeating the Steelers at Heinz Field. Give credit to Peyton Manning, who threw three touchdown passes on Sunday.

Atlanta Falcons 34 - New Orleans Saints 20- Drew Brees had another big day passing for the Saints, but it wasn't enough to stop the hot Falcons. Brees threw for 422 yards, two touchdowns, but also threw three picks. Matt Ryan meanwhile threw two touchdown passes for the Falcons.

San Diego Chargers 20 - Kansas City Chiefs 19- The "In it to win it" philosophy was on display late in the game for the Chiefs. Unfortunately, it didn't work out. Quarterback Tyler Thigpen missed a two-point conversion pass to Tony Gonzalez late in the game. I don't blame Herm Edwards for going for the win. The team isn't competing for a playoff spot, so why not go all in with what you have?

MONDAY NIGHT PICK: Arizona over San Francisco
