We’re fresh off a week where a number of big favorites stumbled, but what’s going to be in store for Week 11? The action starts off with the New England Patriots-Atlanta Falcons showdown on Thursday. Setting that game aside, we’re looking at the best five on Sunday:
Indianapolis Colts @ Buffalo Bills
The Indianapolis Colts had themselves another great week, picking up another win to keep on rolling. Jonathan Taylor is absolutely phenomenal and he is carrying this Colts offense with his legs. He is leading the league in rushing yards now that Derrick Henry has missed the last two games.
The Colts will have their stiffest test yet, a Buffalo Bills team that just stomped the New York Jets. Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs rekindled their explosive connection and this Buffalo defense proved that they are one of the best in the league.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Las Vegas Raiders
The Cincinnati Bengals are coming off a bye week and it was probably for the best. After a huge win over the Baltimore Ravens, they were beaten by the New York Jets and the Cleveland Browns in back-to-back games. Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase will attempt to get this group back on track against an inconsistent Las Vegas Raiders squad.
Arizona Cardinals @ Seattle Seahawks
The Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks always play tight games. They are two normally explosive offenses when both quarterbacks are healthy. That’s not the case here. Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins are still a question mark while Russell Wilson returned last week but struggled. We’ll see if he can regain his swagger on Sunday.
Dallas Cowboys @ Kansas City Chiefs
The Dallas Cowboys beat up the Atlanta Falcons 43-3 last week and are trying to keep the momentum going. Their offense looked phenomenal, getting pretty much whatever they wanted. Even their defense was locking up.
The Chiefs had a similar awakening by knocking off the Raiders in a way that we are used to seeing. Patrick Mahomes threw for 400 yards and five touchdowns and was hitting every receiver on the field. Who isn’t excited to see two of the most talented offenses in the league go head-to-head here?
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Los Angeles Chargers
The Pittsburgh Steelers did everything they could to lose last week to the winless Detroit Lions but luckily, they ended up tying the worst team in the NFL. The Lions took them into overtime and if it wasn’t for a missed field goal at the end of the extra frame, they would have won their first game this year.
Pittsburgh didn’t have Ben Roethlisberger but that is far from an excuse. They had opportunities to score but there were dropped passes and critical fumbles that left them out to dry. Now they must travel to Los Angeles to play the Chargers, who is also in a funk. Which team gets a leg up in the Wild Card race in the AFC?
