For the second week in a row, 10 underdogs covered the spread. Seven of them won straight-up in Week 9, including two double-digit dogs.

Here's an ATS rankings breakdown for all 32 teams heading into Week 10:

All lines from BetMGM.

1. Green Bay Packers 8-1 against the spread (have covered by -0.5 points)

Jordan Love's performance against the Chiefs showed us just how valuable Aaron Rodgers is to this team. They'll get a shot in the arm when Rodgers returns.

Week 10: (-3.5) vs. Seattle Seahawks

2. Dallas Cowboys 7-1 (+37)

All good things must come to an end. Denver held Dak Prescott to a 48.7% completion rate and upset the Cowboys 30-16 to tarnish Dallas' perfect record against the spread.

Week 10: (-8.5) vs. Atlanta Falcons

3. Arizona Cardinals 7-2 (+94)

Defensive end Jeffery Simmons leads the NFL with 42 QB pressures and was in Matthew Stafford's face long enough on Sunday night to conduct a "60 Minutes" interview.

Week 10: (-3) vs. New Orleans Saints

5. Indianapolis Colts 6-3 (+33.5)

Indy ran for 260 yards against the Jets. That's 42% of New York's rushing total for the entire season.

Week 10: (+3.5) at Green Bay Packers

8. Los Angeles Chargers 5-3 (-4)

Justin Herbert broke out of his two-game slump to throw for 356 yards and two touchdowns against the Eagles. He'll get to face a Vikings defense sans Harrison Smith.

9. New England Patriots 5-4 (+44)

Lamar Jackson's current odds to win MVP are screaming value.

Week 10: (-7.5) at Miami Dolphins
