The departure of the Vikings
Kirk Cousins ââappeared to throw an interception with just over two minutes to go in a draw, but officials looked at the play and determined the pass was incomplete. With a second chance, Cousins ââand Dalvin Cook led the Vikings inside the Packers 10-yard line which was all they needed to accomplish. Two knees and a 29-yard field goal from Greg Joseph later, Minnesota is back in the thick of it at 5-5.
The start of Tyler Huntley’s first career was unforgettable, as the former undrafted free agent from Utah orchestrated the winning run that ended with Devonta Freeman’s three-yard touchdown with 22 seconds left. . Huntley had 56 passing yards on the disc, including a magnificent throw to Sammy Watkins on a broken play on the third and 12 that set the go-ahead score.
Dalton delivers on time!
The 4th and 11th with no downtime, that was it for the Bears. Fail to convert and the Ravens leave Chicago with a 9-6 victory. Guess nobody said that to Andy Dalton, because as an injured substitute Justin Fields he threw a pass down the straight sideline – just before taking a massive blow – which the wide open Marquise Goodwin ran under, then ran into the end zone to put Chicago back on top.
What may have been the dagger of Tennessee’s return hopes turned into their second touchdown, as Dontrell Hilliard fumbled in the end zone and Anthony Firkser recovered to keep the Titans alive.
Rodgers to Adams x2
The ball almost always goes to Davante Adams, and it’s always nearly impossible to stop it. Seven receptions, 115 yards and a pair of scores so far from Adams, with the most recent touchdown putting the Packers in the lead.
Cut the Browns’ lead quickly
Quarterback Tim Boyle isn’t likely to lead the Lions past the Browns, but D’Andre Swift appears capable of leading Detroit to its first win of the year. Exhibit A: Swift slicing through Cleveland’s defense with a 57-yard touchdown to reduce the deficit to 13-7.
Moore is more
Elijah Moore is starting to show more and more why the Jets used a second-round pick against him in the April Draft. He made another big play in the third quarter on Sunday, catching a ball in the middle and passing everyone to pay for dirt at 62 yards to tie things up at 14.
You go deep
It hasn’t been pretty, but the Dolphins have done just enough so far to contain the Jets. The green light score came on a 65-yard bomb from Tua Tagovailoa to Mack Hollins. It looked like Hollins would go out of bounds inside the 10-yard line, but in classic Jets fashion, the defenseman literally pushed Hollins forward and through the goal line for the score.
Mooney breaks free!
The Bears offense had done absolutely nothing against the Ravens for three and a half quarters, and now Chicago was counting on Andy Dalton with questionable Justin Fields to come back with a rib injury. Then Darnell Mooney arrived. Dalton threw the ball at Mooney on a bubble screen, and the 2020 fifth-round pick did the rest, sprinting between two blockers, making a devastating cut (for the Ravens defenseman) and going into the races for a score. 60 yards. Suddenly Chicago has the head.
Tyrod cannot be stopped!
After one of the worst special team mistakes of the season of the Titans, the Texans took advantage of another rushed touchdown from Tyrod Taylor – this one, a five-yard run he dived into for the front left pylon before the defender could knock him down.
Darius kills another offense
Play two games in a row with a touchdown for Darius Slay. The Eagles Pro Bowl cornerback baited Trevor Siemian in a right throw, jumped the road and slipped on the sidelines for a score that served as a backbreaker for the Saints before half-time.
Rodgers on the run!
Desperate for a big game with the Packers lagging behind, 16-3, future Hall of Fame member Aaron Rodgers delivered with a penny of a running pass to tight end Josiah Deguara for the touchdown of 25 yards. The Vikings hold a 16-10 lead early in the third quarter.
First half hat trick
The Colts take on the Bills thanks in large part to Jonathan Taylor, who has 98 yards and three touchdowns in just the first half. His latest score, which came after the Bills fumbled at the kickoff, gave Indianapolis a 24-7 advantage.
Cam 2, Ron Rivera 0
Ron Rivera has seen this so many times before – Cam Newton went wild against opposing defenses – but he’s almost always been on the same side as one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks. Sunday didn’t, leaving Rivera to watch Newton fake the transfer and take off without touching the left end for 24 yards to give Carolina the lead, 14-7.
The Texans dominated the Titans for a quarter and a half, with the highlight being Tyrod Taylor’s run, leap and score at seven yards to give Houston a 12-0 advantage. The Titans are officially under surveillance.
INT red zone
The Titans, as the AFC’s No.1 seed, should have no problem with the Texans 1-8, right? It would make sense, but not when Ryan Tannehill throws red zone interceptions. Kamu Grugier-Hill got the better of Tannehill on this play and returned the ball to the Tennessee 6-yard line, leading to Houston’s second basket of the afternoon.
Jarvis Landry expected him to throw the ball after taking the shotgun shot from the 16-yard line. However, he didn’t like what he saw in the field, so he took off, crossing the middle of the defense and crossing the goal line for the opening touchdown of the game.
The 20-play player ends with FG …
Twenty-game workouts just don’t happen, but when they do, they almost always end with touchdowns. Well, that wasn’t the case for the 49ers, who instead of going on the 4th and the 1 goal, decided to hit a 20-yard basket. After having used up 13 minutes and 5 seconds of the game clock, San Francisco was satisfied with three points. Big win for the Jaguars.
RB to WR transfer TD
Splitting wide to the right, Tua Tagovailoa watched with satisfaction as Myles Gaskin took the shotgun and handed the ball to Jaylen Waddle who was running on the left. From there, Waddle easily passed a pair of Jets defensemen for the one-yard touchdown to put the Dolphins ahead.
Cam 1, Ron Rivera 0
Cam Newton, making his first start since returning to Carolina, just happens to face his longtime former head coach Ron Rivera. And Newton punched hard first, completing his three goals in opening practice, including that awesome 10-yard touchdown for DJ Moore.
Rain and wind expected for Colts-Bills match
In what appears to be the best AFC showdown of Week 11, the Colts-Bills game could be subject to adverse weather conditions. According to weather.com, there is a 50% chance of rain from the kickoff at 1 p.m. ET, but that number drops to at least 75% over the next three hours to accompany the 15 mph winds.
That climate seems to favor a 5-5 Colts team that has relied heavily on second-year stud Jonathan Taylor over the past five games (four wins, one overtime loss). On the contrary, the Bills (6-3) could start quickly and be content to keep the ball on the ground as conditions deteriorate.
Weather aside, this game could have serious playoff implications. The Colts, looking to top 0.500 for the first time this season, are at the heart of the wildcard hunt with the Steelers, Chargers and Bengals, among others. The Bills, meanwhile, are looking to stay ahead of the Scorching Patriots in the AFC East standings. They are also targeting the conference’s No.1 seed, currently held by the Tennessee Titans.
