Chiefs at Raiders8:20 p.m. ET (Overview)
Dalton to Dalton
The Cowboys took a late lead over the Vikings when Andy Dalton found Dalton Schultz for the TD. It was a very well-crafted third call from Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. Schultz opened up wide below with the natural choice.
Simmons with the INT sealing the game
If you don’t know Broncos safety Justin Simmons, you should familiarize yourself with his name by now. He may very well be an All-Pro safety when this season is said and done. Simmons had the decisive interception by Ryan Fitzpatrick – who replaced Tua Tagovailoa – to put the Broncos in the win.
Rivers finds Doyle to cut the lead
Don’t look now, but the Colts are plotting a comeback against the Packers thanks to some great shots from veteran QB Philip Rivers. To cap a long scoring streak, Rivers tore a ball between two defenders and found Jack Doyle for the score.
Thielen gives Lamb a hard time
Earlier we called CeeDee Lamb’s TD the best of the week, but Adam Thielen would like to talk to us after that. Thielen clinched the score one-handed and dragged his toes to make sure this thing couldn’t be knocked over. He also fired a waiting penalty which the Vikings would ultimately disallow.
Gordon breaks free
Melvin Gordon hasn’t had much room to run for most of the season, but he surprisingly found some against a previously stingy Dolphins defense. Melvin looked like his old self here, showing off that short zone burst and his ability to bounce off his cuts without losing much speed at all.
Herbert shows off his next-level arm talent
Justin Herbert is arguably the most impressive rookie QB this season and his arm talent is truly something else. Watch how Herbert rolls over his opposite shoulder and lets the ball through a narrow window to his favorite target. Ball speed and placement on this TD is rare – you won’t see it in many QBs – rookies or veterans.
Flacco drops a bomb on Perriman
It looks like Joe Flacco has found his favorite Jets receiver as he continues to replace Sam Darnold. Flacco let him fly two weeks ago against the Patriots and connected in the deep passing game with Breshad Perriman. This was the case again this week and Flacco understood it perfectly. Big throw. Superb capture.
The lamb catches the day
Do you want to see the best catch of week 11? Look no further, CeeDee Lamb has you covered. After racking up some of the country’s most jaw-dropping catches in Oklahoma, Lamb is up to his old tricks with the Cowboys. Lamb’s ability to adjust his body and maintain control while making slightly off-set passes from a placement perspective is phenomenal.
Adams gets No. 10
Since returning from injury earlier this season, Davante Adams has arguably been the best WR in the NFL, both in numbers and visual test. In Week 11, he grabbed the No. 10 touchdown. He did most of the work on this one, but kudos to Aaron Rodgers on a lightning-fast outing.
Herbert exits in the first half
Justin Herbert cooked in the first half of what is arguably the easiest game he’ll have all year against the Jets’ pass defense. His favorite target continues to be Keenan Allen – and the pair connected for nearly 100 yards in a single half – but his most impressive play came in the deep passing game. Herbert is approaching 300 passing yards with two touchdowns in one half.
Pittman breaks free for a big
After landing on injured reserve earlier this year, it looked like it could be a lost rookie season for Michael Pittman. Scratch that. He’s healthy, back and making big plays. After a breakthrough game in Week 10, Pittman rode through Week 11 with another breakthrough play – this time for a touchdown.
Taysom impressive in his first career start
No one was sure what to make of Hill’s first career start at QB after the Saints kept it a secret until we found out this weekend that he’d taken all of the first-team reps. Hill passed his first test with flying colors in a decisive win over a division rival. Hill finished the game with an impressive 18-for-23 for 233 passing yards – an average of over 10 yards per attempt. He also added 51 yards on 10 carries and two touchdowns. Here are some of Hill’s most impressive pieces:
Hill turning a failed passing play into a rushing TD.
Hill with the Newton-esque Cam designed to rush TD.
Hill finds Michael Thomas for the strike.
Big Dog eats in operating room
Derrick Henry — or the big dog — a nickname to describe his fourth-quarter play — sealed a comeback win for the Titans with an impressive reduced TD run in overtime. Big dog eats!
Brown breaks several tackles
AJ Brown just wouldn’t be stopped on what is an early contender for our favorite game on the Week 11 list. Not only did Brown’s broken tackles keep a practice that would otherwise have been in jeopardy alive, but it gave the Titans the green light.
Hunt broadcasts Kareem for the score
Kareem Hunt would not be stopped en route to the end zone for a flying score to cap off a practice where the Browns imposed their will with a long run from Nick Chubb to set up Hunt’s short score. While Hunt’s fantasy owners are probably angry, Browns fans are loving it.
Cam feeling it on the ball deep
Cam Newton began developing a relationship with his makeshift WR body over the past two weeks and that continued through Week 11. Newton found Damiere Byrd on a perfectly pitched 42-yard deep shot to bring the Patriots back in the game. Byrd also did a great job tracking the ball.
Lamar finds his favorite target
The biggest difference between the MVP version of Lamar Jackson and the 2020 version is his effectiveness on deep passes. After connecting with Marquise Brown for four long touchdowns in 2019, he’s connected with him for zero this season. One receiver he has still been able to connect with at times is tight end Mark Andrews. On a well-conceived deep shot, Jackson connected with Andrews for a big shot.
Claypool grabs TD #8
Chase Claypool continues to build on his surprising case for Offensive Rookie of the Year. Claypool could have had odds worse than 100/1 – if he was even on the board – to win the prize before the season. Now? Well, we’ll say this, when you factor in the eight touchdowns and the impact he had on the Steelers offense as a whole — we like his chances. Ben Roethlisberger dropped the ball perfectly overhead and Claypool made the leaping grab.
Terrier green for the first time
Joe Burrow hasn’t been shy about targeting veteran AJ Green so far this season, but despite the heavy volume, the rookie has yet to be able to connect with the veteran on a single TD this season. That all changed in Week 11. In the red zone, Burrow found Green for the TD.
Wentz makes an early mistake
Carson Wentz has struggled in 2020 and it’s no secret, but he made a mistake to start Week 11, which is unacceptable. Wentz missed an open read to his receiver before making the decision to throw late — flat to a running back — a recipe for disaster no matter how you slice it. The Browns capitalized immediately with a six pick.
Titans with the wrong direction
Tennessee found a way to capitalize on their first red-zone possession with a tricky misdirection play. Watch QB Ryan Tannehill’s eyes as he sells the throw to his right before returning to a left to Jonnu Smith who crosses out his block and cashes in.
Walker and Hill get their chance
The best stories in the NFL are always the most unexpected and that’s exactly what two quarterbacks get to lay the groundwork for in Week 11. PJ Walker was arguably the best player on the court at any time. what an XFL position when it restarted last year and now he will have his chance to start for his former college coach in a very favorable offense at the quarterback in Carolina with by Joe Burrow former college coordinator (Joe Brady) at the helm. Who knows – maybe Walker can turn this into a long-term starting chance. In New Orleans, the Saints want to see what they have in Taysom Hill long-term after re-signing him. Hill will draw the start and could take the first step to prove he is Drew Bree‘ ultimate successor.
