Week 10 of the NFL season produced some high-octane thrillers and a few defensive snoozefests.
The games covered both ends of the entertainment spectrum, but for now it's time to focus solely on the players who treated fans to scintillating performances.
Here are five of the top individual performers from Week 10.
As usual, it has been a roller-coaster ride for both Dak Prescott himself and the Dallas Cowboys as a whole. On Sunday it was the good version of those entities that showed up.
Prescott passed for 404 yards and four touchdowns while completing 26 of 35 attempts during a 49-17 beatdown of the NFC East rival New York Giants. The former Mississippi State standout also rushed for a score.
Prescott was so effective that he racked up all of his statistics in just three quarters of work before Cooper Rush played the entire fourth quarter.
In the most entertaining game of the afternoon, the Detroit Lions outlasted the Los Angeles Chargers 41-38. In reality, the entire Detroit offense could be considered the player of the game.
Among plenty of other standouts such as QB Jared Goff and RBs Jahmyr Gibbs and David Montgomery, Amon-Ra St. Brown was particularly impressive. The third-year WR out of USC had eight receptions for 156 yards and one touchdown.
St. Brown has now exceeded the 100-yard mark in four straight games and his team are +380 to win the NFC.
After starting the season 0-3 and 1-4, the Vikings have suddenly reeled off five wins in a row to insert themselves into both the NFC North and Wild Card discussions at 6-4, and they are -200 to make the playoffs,
Quarterback Josh Dobbs has been an instant revelation since being acquired from the Arizona Cardinals in the wake of Kirk Cousins' season-ending torn Achilles.
On Sunday, Dobbs' favorite target – by far – was tight end T.J. Hockenson. The Iowa product caught 11 of 15 targets and turned those into 134 yards and one touchdown during a 27-19 victory over the New Orleans Saints.
Hockenson has been targeted 27 times through two games with Dobbs, cementing an already impressive connection between the two.
This is C.J. Stroud's second week in a row on this list. That's impressive for anyone, not to mention a rookie quarterback on a team that was predicted to be among the league's worst before the season.
Taking the NFL world by storm in his rookie campaign, the Houston Texans quarterback built on his amazing performance in Week 9 by powering his team to a 30-27 road upset of the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10.
Stroud threw for 356 yards and one touchdown while also rushing for a score.
Although Stroud’s numbers weren't as gaudy as they were a week earlier against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he once again delivered late by leading Houston on a final drive that resulted in a game-winning field goal as time expired.
The Texans are +275 to win the AFC South.
Sunday Night Football saw the Raiders scrape past the Jets 16-12 in what could end up being a crucial contest in the AFC Wild Card picture.
Las Vegas has Robert Spillane in part to thank for its big win. The linebacker led the team with seven total tackles (tied with LB Divine Deablo) and also recorded a sack, a tackle for loss, a pass defended and a crucial interception that ended a New York drive at the Vegas 20-yard line with 1:22 remaining in the game.
Interim head coach Antonio Pierce touted Spillane as a team leader when he took over for Josh McDaniels, and so far Spillane has delivered.
He will need to do it again this weekend, with The Raiders the +425 underdogs at the Miami Dolphins.
