The Miami Dolphins defeated the Cleveland Browns by 22 points in Week 10. In a game that Miami hosted, the Dolphins put up 39 points against a Cleveland team that looked dangerous defensively. It truly was a signature win for the Miami team if you look at the games after Tua Tagovailoa’s injury and return. The Dolphins are now 7-3 on the season and they are in first place in the AFC East.

Buffalo lost to Minnesota

The Buffalo Bills were the top dog in the division heading into the week. However, they lost their second game in a row. On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings claimed a memorable overtime victory that included a Josh Allen fumble in his own end zone very late in the fourth quarter.

The New York Jets and the New England Patriots are still very much in the mix in the division. They were each idle in Week 10. The standings would currently see the Buffalo Bills in third place in the division.
