The NFL is working its way through the Sunday slate and will close out with a couple key west division matchups in primetime: the Raiders host the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football and the 49ers host the Rams on Monday Night Football.

The Dolphins got things off to a wild start with an upset of the Ravens on Thursday Night Football. Sunday saw a mix of wild upsets and favorites rectifying things in the 1 p.m. slate. Notably, Washington stunned the Bucs at FedEx Field as 9.5-point underdogs. On the other side of the coin, he Cowboys crushed the Falcons and the Bills rolled the Jets, giving both teams a big bounce-back win after embarrassing performances in Week 9.

Below are the eight divisional standings, along with some quick thoughts about each division after 10 weeks of football. We’ll update with relevant records after the rest of Sunday and Monday Night Football.
