We review the highlights of the day’s matches on the eleventh day of the regular season
The Sunday day of the Week 11 The NFL included upsets for teams that looked like solid playoff candidates and also left us some unexpected beatings.
The Indianapolis Colts gave a hard blow to the Buffalo bills, who now look more concerned with staying on top of the AFC East than fighting for a bye week in the playoffs; the Houston Texans and Chicago Bears complicated the outlook for Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens, respectively.
We also had a couple of tighter divisional battles than anticipated with duels between Green bay packers against Minnesota Vikings and Miami dolphins in view of New York Jets.
Here we review the most notable of the first batch of matches this Sunday:
In what is possibly the biggest surprise of the day, the Colts they traveled to Buffalo and gave a forceful beating to the Bills who were never able to ignite their offense, largely because of the constant pressure faced by Josh Allen, who ended up throwing two interceptions. Jonathan Taylor was the hero for Indianapolis with four touchdown carries, plus a touchdown reception.
The Ravens overcame Lamar Jackson’s loss with a solid performance from backup Tyler Huntley against the Bears, though they had to come back in the final minutes to do so, sealing the win with a Devonta Freeman touchdown run. Chicago lost quarterback Justin Fields through injury, but Andy Dalton came off the bench and threw two touchdown passes, although it was not enough to surprise Baltimore.
Injuries continue to take their toll on Browns, who now lost wide receiver Jarvis Landry, but still managed to pull off a tight 13-10 victory over the Lions, who still do not know the victory despite reacting in the second half.
It seems that Titans They only know how to lose to bad teams, first the Jets and now the Texans, largely due to a poor performance by quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who threw four interceptions. Tyrod Taylor drove the triumph of Houston with two touchdown carries.
Aaron Rodgers had a monstrous performance completing 23 passes for 385 yards and four touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Packers will fall in the last second in front of the Vikings, who dodged a bullet when an interception to Kirk Cousins was disallowed with 2 minutes left, the offense walked and got Greg Joseph in position to attempt the winning field goal.
Dolphins and Jets They came tied in the fourth quarter, but Tua Tagovailoa appeared with a touchdown pass to Myles Gaskins that led to Miami to a victory that puts him at 4-7 to be incredibly back in the fight in the spotty AFC East.
The Eagles They went back to betting on their running attack and had great results, gaining 242 yards that way to control the pace of the game, forcing the Saints to take risks and although Trevor Siemian threw three touchdown passes, he also had two interceptions, including one that it was returned 51 yards for a touchdown by Darius Slay.
Washington ruined Cam Newton’s return as headline of the Panthers and escaped with a victory 27-21, in a game that also marked the return of head coach Ron Rivera to Carolina. Newton threw two touchdown passes and scored once on the ground, but Taylor Heinicke responded with three touchdown passes and kicker Joey Slye did the rest with two field goals in the fourth quarter.
The 49ers they had no problem with the coast-to-coast journey and passed over the Jaguars with a quick start to take a 17-0 lead before Jacksonville will react. Jimmy Garoppolo threw two touchdown passes and Deebo Samuel had a 25-yard touchdown run.
