Week 10 is underway and we’ve got the most balanced schedule the NFL will have this season. The Masters has resulted in five games in the 1 p.m. slot and then six in the 4:05/4:25 p.m. slot. CBS had no games in the early slot and splits the remaining six evenly following Dustin Johnson’s Masters win. The big late afternoon game is Bills-Cardinals.

We’ll be updating the standings throughout the rest of the today and Monday evening.
