NFL Week 11 Game Recaps


Green Bay Packers (4-5-1) vs. Seattle Seahawks (5-5)


Final Score: Seahawks 27, Packers 24


Recap: This game was a relatively close one throughout, with a few momentum shifts between the two teams. Green Bay started off strong behind an Aaron Jones touchdown run and an Aaron Rodgers TD pass to Robert Tonyan. However, the Seahawks were able to roar back in the second quarter with a Russell Wilson touchdown pass and a Chris Carson touchdown run. By the fourth, the Packers had retaken the lead. However, with about 8 minutes remaining in the game, Russell Wilson led his team down the field against the porous Packers pass defense, scoring a touchdown with five minutes left to retake the lead. Despite the best attempts from Rodgers, the Packers were unable to respond, being held up by the Seahawks defense. Both teams played relatively well, but ultimately it was the Packers who blew both their early first quarter lead, and their lead in the fourth, to the Seahawks, and were unable to recover by scoring a go-ahead touchdown.


The biggest plays of the day definitely came on both sides of the ball for the Seahawks. Chris Carson was undoubtedly impressive in this game, racking up 83 yards a touchdown, but Russell Wilson was able to rally the team to victory. His first touchdown drive helped to spark the Seahawks second quarter surge, but it was definitely his big-time throws to Tyler Lockett on the game-winning drive that was the standout of the game. He capped that drive off with an impressive 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson against the blitzing Packers to seal the game. On the other side of the ball, the Seahawks got a great deal of pressure on Rodgers, totaling five sacks on the QB and disrupting many of this throws, including on the Packers last drive. Overall, the Seahawks played a well-rounded game against the struggling Packers.

Cincinnati Bengals (5-5) vs. Baltimore Ravens (5-5)


Final Score: Ravens 24, Bengals 21


Recap: The Baltimore Ravens were able to hold off the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon in what turned out to be one of the more entertaining games of the day. Lamar Jackson looked good in his first career NFL start, as he made plays both in the air and on the ground. He looked pretty comfortable in the pocket and he flashed some nice awareness. The Bengals offense was a little out of sync all day, as Joe Mixon had just over 50 total yards. At the end of the day, the Ravens were able to pull even in the division with the Bengals.


The biggest plays of the day for the Ravens were Lamar Jackson’s rushing attempts. He was able to rush the ball 27 times, which is almost unheard out of for a quarterback in today’s NFL. Jackson looked electrifying, and the Bengals had no answer for him. Gus Edwards also looked great for the Ravens, which was rather surprising given the depth in the Ravens’ backfield.


Notable Performances:

Cincinnati Bengals

Andy Dalton, QB: 19/36, 211 yds, 2 TD; 2 rush 29 yds

Joe Mixon, RB: 12 rush, 14 yds, 1 TD; 3 rec, 38 yds

Tyler Boyd, WR: 4 rec, 71 yds


Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson, QB: 13/19, 150 yds, 1 INT; 27 rush, 117 yds

Gus Edwards, RB: 17 rush, 115 yds, 1 TD

Willie Snead IV, WR: 5 rec, 51 yds

Dallas Cowboys (5-5) vs. Atlanta Falcons (4-6)


Final Score: Cowboys 22, Falcons 19


Recap: The Cowboys and Falcons once again played in desperation mode in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. And for the second time in as many weeks, Dallas prevailed and Atlanta came up short. Brett Maher knocked in a 42-yard FG as time expired, securing Dallas' 22-19 victory, just their second road win of the season. Dallas improves to 5-5 and will have a chance to take over the division lead on Thanksgiving Day when they host the Washington Redskins, who unfortunately lost Alex Smith for the season on Sunday. Atlanta, on the other hand, falls to 4-6 and have a mountainous task ahead if they are to keep their playoff hopes alive, as they travel to New Orleans on a short week to play the red-hot Saints on Thanksgiving night.


For the majority of the game, it was a defensive battle featuring field goals between Maher (3/3) and Matt Bryant, who hit all four of his FG attempts in his return to the lineup. However the game had new life in the 4th quarter, as the teams combined for 26 points down the stretch. Dak Prescott scored on a 4-yard run to give Dallas a 12-9 lead (missed extra point). Ezekiel Elliott, who was the player of the game with 201 total yards, extended the lead with a 23-yard TD run of his own following a Leighton Vander Esch INT (which had tipped off Falcons rookie WR Calvin Ridley's hands). Atlanta wasn't done though, as they clawed back in the final minutes with a Bryant FG and a beautiful 34-yard TD catch from Julio Jones with 1:52 remaining. Dallas started the final drive from their own 25 and went 51 yards on 10 plays, highlighted by Cole Beasley's 19-yard reception that put Dallas in range for Maher's game-winning 42-yard FG.

Notable Performances:

Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott, QB: 22/32, 208 yds; 4 rush, 5 yds, 1 TD

Ezekiel Elliott, RB: 23 rush, 122 yds, TD, 5.3 ypc; 7 rec, 79 yds

Cole Beasley, WR: 5 rec, 51 yds


Atlanta Falcons

Matt Ryan, QB: 24/34, 291 yds, TD, INT

Tevin Coleman, RB: 8 rush, 58 yds, 7.3 ypc

Julio Jones, WR: 6 rec, 118 yds, TD

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-7) vs. New York Giants (3-7)


Final Score: Giants 38, Buccaneers 35


Recap: A surprisingly entertaining installment between two teams in last place in their respective divisions saw the return of Jameis Winston in a 38-35 loss at the hands of the Giants, who continued their winning streak. Eli Manning, who notoriously gets heat for his interception numbers, was on fire in this contest, throwing only one incomplete pass. The Bucs, meanwhile, saw their second game in the past month in which their starting QB got benched after throwing multiple interceptions, while the backup leads a massive comeback attempt that ultimately falls short. New York, by virtue of this win, now has some momentum in a very interesting NFC East that just saw Redskins QB Alex Smith go down with a gruesome injury, the Cowboys barely survive the Falcons, and the Eagles just straight up laying a dud. Tampa Bay, meanwhile, returns home for a three-game stretch and yet another quarterback decision to make.


The scoring started early for the home team, as Rookie of the Year frontrunner Saquon Barkley pummeled his way in for a score. His second touchdown would come after the Buccaneers drove down the field, only to be stuffed on fourth down at the Giant 5. The Bucs would whittle the score down to 14-7 on a Fitzpatrick scramble, but their next three drive results were an interception, pick-6, and interception, and that was all she wrote for Fitz’s day. Jameis came in and drove down the field, and a scramble to the end zone led to a Mike Evans fumble recovery for a touchdown. Winston would find his favorite target late in the fourth on a 41-yard bomb. Tampa Bay would force a punt, getting one final shot to either tie or win, but a failed Jameis-Desean connection ended in a B.W. Webb pick to seal it.


Notable Performances:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB: 13/21, 167 yds, 3 INT

Jameis Winston, QB: 12/16, 199 yds, 2 TD, INT

Peyton Barber, RB: 18 rush, 106 yds, TD, 5.9 ypc

Mike Evans, WR: 6 rec, 120 yds, TD


New York Giants

Eli Manning, QB: 17/18, 231 yds, 2 TD

Saquon Barkley, RB: 27 rush, 142 yds, 2 TD, 5.3 ypc

Odell Beckham, Jr., WR: 4 rec, 74 yds, TD

Pittsburgh Steelers (7-2-1) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-7)


Final Score: Steelers 20, Jaguars 16


Recap: This game was looking to get ugly for Steelers fans. The Jaguars defense was giving quarterback Ben Roethlisberger fits just like last season, forcing three interception, two coming at the hands of All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey. They also shut down the run, limiting James Conner to only 25 yards on nine carries. Luckily for the Steelers, Ben found a way to regain composure and led the Steelers to a comeback victory, finishing with 314 yards and two touchdowns along with his three interceptions. Wide receivers Antonio Brown and Juju Smith-Schuster each finished with over 100 yards receiving. Running back Leonard Fournette was the only sign of life for Jacksonville’s offense as he finished with 95 yards and a touchdown. This is the Steelers’ sixth win in a row, while the Jaguars drop to an embarrassing 3-7.


The Jaguars defense started off strong yesterday, as they forced two punts in a row to start off the game, leading to two Josh Lambo field goals. They would follow with two interceptions by Ramsey and Barry Church and another field goal to take a 9-0 lead going into the half. Roethlisberger threw his third interception to Ramsey in the third quarter, which led to a 2-yard touchdown run by Fournette. The Steelers answered quickly with a 78-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger to Brown to make it 16-6. With just over three minutes left in the game, the Steelers failed to convert on fourth down and looked to be finished. Luckily, their defense stepped up and put the offense in position to score on a 11-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger to Vance McDonald to make it a one score game. The Steelers got the ball back with just over a minute left in the game and drove down the field to set up a game-winning one yard touchdown run by Roethlisberger to give the Steelers the 20-16 victory.


Notable Performances:

Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger, QB: 27/47, 314 yds, 2 TD, 3 INT, 1 rush TD

James Conner, RB: 9 rush, 25 yds, 2.8 ypc

Houston Texans (7-3) vs. Washington Redskins (6-4)


Final Score: Texans 23, Redskins 21


Recap: The Texans and Redskins got themselves into a defensive slugfest that came down to the last play of regulation to determine the winner. Rookie safety Justin Reid made a huge play, picking off Alex Smith in the red zone with a 101-yard touchdown return to give Houston a 17-7 lead in the 2nd quarter. The biggest blow came to Washington in the 3rd quarter, when Alex Smith suffered a gruesome broken leg, immediately ending his season. Backup Colt McCoy did lead the Redskins back into this game, as they saw their first lead change in a game this season when they went ahead 21-20 in the 4th quarter. Jordan Reed saw his first big game of the year as he ended the day with 71 yards and a touchdown.


The Texans found a way to get a field goal to give them the 23-21, lead but the Redskins did have an opportunity to win the game. After a missed field goal by Houston, McCoy got Washington in position to kick the game-winning 63-yard field goal attempt. But, Dustin Hopkins kick did come up short and the Texans continue their 7-game winning streak. The Redskins will try to get back on track with a big divisional matchup against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Houston will look to continue their winning streak against the Titans on Monday night.


Notable Performances:

Houston Texans

Deshaun Watson, QB: 16/24, 208 yds, 1 TD, 2 INT

Lamar Miller, RB: 20 rush, 86 yds, 4.3 ypc, 3 rec, 22 yds

Tennessee Titans (5-5) vs. Indianapolis Colts (5-5)


Final Score: Colts 38, Titans 10


Recap: The Colts completely dominated the Titans on both sides of the ball, and after the 2nd quarter this game never even got close to being interesting. Andrew Luck continued his domination with another 3 touchdown performance. But his success can be attributed to his offensive line, as they went another game without letting up a sack and they are a big reason for Indianapolis’ 4-game winning streak. Darius Leonard made another push for the defensive rookie of the year reward with another great day on the field. There was no bright spots for Tennessee in this matchup and they saw Marcus Mariota leave right before halftime with an injury.


The Colts took complete control when they scored 17 points in the 2nd quarter. Up 10-0, Luck connected with T.Y. Hilton on a 68-yard bomb touchdown to give Indy the 17-0 lead and they never looked back after that score. Tennessee will look to correct things and get back to how they looked in their two-game winning streak with a big divisional matchup against the Texans on Monday night. The Colts will be looking to keep the ball rolling against the Dolphins as they look to make a push to make the playoffs.


Notable Performances:

Tennessee Titans

Marcus Mariota, QB: 10/13, 85 yds, 1 INT (Injured in 1st half)

Blaine Gabbert, QB: 11/16, 118 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT

Derrick Henry, RB: 9 rush, 46 yds, 5.1 ypc

Jonnu Smith, TE: 6 rec, 44 yds


Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck, QB: 23/29, 297 yds, 3 TD

Marlon Mack, RB: 16 rush, 61 yds, 1 TD, 3.8 ypc

T.Y. Hilton, WR: 9 rec, 155 yds, 2 TD

Darius Leonard, LB: 7 tackles, 1 Sack, 1 FF, 1 INT

Carolina Panthers (6-4) vs. Detroit Lions (4-6)

Final Score: Lions 20, Panthers 19


Recap: A very interesting contest between the Panthers and Lions will ultimately be remembered by “Riverboat Ron” Rivera’s costly decision to go for the two-point conversion to win, but failing. After the game, Rivera defended his stance, saying they came to win, not to lose or tie, which is commendable, but still a risky decision to make. Both quarterbacks played well in this matchup, with Cam and Stafford consistently keeping their squads in the game. Detroit now has a short week to prepare for the red-hot division leading Chicago Bears on Thursday. Carolina, meanwhile, has all but seen their chances at the division slip away, and now must focus on securing one of the two wild card spots.


Two opening drive touchdowns that led to a 7-7 tie saw the next five combined possessions end in punts before Detroit would connect on a 54-yard field goal by Matt Prater. The Panthers wouldn’t score again until the fourth quarter, when Curtis Samuel hauled in a 12-yard pass from Cam. Detroit would regain the lead shortly thereafter, with Stafford finding Kenny Golladay for a score. Carolina would score with 1:07 remaining, but a questionable decision by Rivera to go for two was ultimately no good, despite multiple angles that could’ve allowed Cam and his massive frame to punch it in. And on the kickoff, Carolina attempted to onside kick it, but like the 375 attempts prior, it failed, and Detroit would escape with the victory.


Notable Performances:

Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton, QB: 25/37, 357 yds, 3 TD, INT

Christian McCaffrey, RB: 13 rush, 53 yds, 4.1 ypc; 6 rec, 57 yds

DJ Moore, WR: 7 rec, 157 yds, TD

Curtis Samuel, WR: 5 rec, 55 yds, TD


Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford, QB: 23/37, 220 yds, TD

Kerryon Johnson, RB: 15 rush, 87 yds, TD, 5.8 ypc

Kenny Golladay, WR: 8 rec, 113 yds, TD

Denver Broncos (4-6) vs. Los Angeles Chargers (7-3)


Final Score: Broncos 23, Chargers 22


Recap: This matchup between the Broncos and Chargers served as another hard fought divisional game in the AFC West. The Chargers have been rolling lately, but that didn’t matter to Denver, who walked away with a very close victory. Denver’s offense was led by the rushing attack of rookie running back Phillip Lindsay, who finished with 79 rushing yards and two touchdowns. For the Chargers, quarterback Philip Rivers led the way with 401 yards and two touchdowns through the air. Unfortunately, he also threw two interceptions that would prove to be very costly in the end.


The Chargers put the first points on the board with two Mike Badgley field goals to take a 6-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Denver answered with a 41-yard touchdown run by Lindsay to start the second, which was followed by a touchdown pass from Rivers to Keenan Allen to make it 13-7 Chargers at the half. The Chargers opened up the second half with a 6-yard touchdown pass from Rivers to Antonio Gates to take a 19-7 lead. Denver did not let that lead put them down, as Von Miller picked off a Rivers pass which set up a touchdown run by Royce Freeman. They would follow that with another touchdown run by Lindsay to get within two points. The Broncos stepped up on defense and got the offense the ball back with just under two minutes left and they were able to drive down the field to set up a game-winning 34-yard Brandon McManus field goal as time expired.


Notable Performances:

Denver Broncos

Case Keenum, QB: 19/32, 205 yds

Phillip Lindsay, RB: 11 rush, 79 yds, 2 TD, 7.2 ypc

Courtland Sutton, WR: 3 rec, 78 yds


Los Angeles Chargers

Philip Rivers, QB: 28/43, 401 yds, 2 TD, 2 INT

Melvin Gordon, RB: 18 rush, 69 yds, 3.8 ypc, 6 rec, 87 rec yds

Oakland Raiders (2-8) vs. Arizona Cardinals (2-8)


Final Score: Raiders 23, Cardinals 21


Recap: This matchup between the Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals featured two of the worst teams in the NFL. With that being said, the similar talent level of these two teams made for a very close game. The Raiders were led by quarterback Derek Carr, who finished with 192 yards and two touchdowns through the air. Rookie quarterback Josh Rosen was on the losing end of this one, finishing with 136 yards passing with 3 touchdowns and two interceptions. The win for the Raiders gives them a little excitement in what has been a disappointing first season for head coach Jon Gruden, while the Cardinals drop to 2-8 on the season.


Oakland’s defense started off this game on a strong note with a Gareon Conley interception on the second play of the game, which led to a 23-yards touchdown pass from Carr to Jared Cook. The Cardinals followed with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Rosen to Larry Fitzgerald to tie the game. Arizona scored again at the end of the first quarter on a pass from Rosen to Christian Kirk, which was followed by a touchdown pass from Carr to Brandon LaFell to make it 14-14 at the half. The Raiders went into the fourth quarter up 20-14 after two field goals by Daniel Carlson. Arizona would regain the lead with just over five minutes to play on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Rosen to Fitzgerald. After multiple scoreless drives from both teams, Oakland got the ball back with just under two minutes left to play and drove down the field for a 35-yard game-winning field by Carlson.


Notable Performances:

Oakland Raiders

Derek Carr, QB: 19/31, 192 yds, 2 TD

Jalen Richard, RB: 11 rush, 61 yds, 5.5 ypc

Marcell Ateman, WR: 4 rec, 50 yds

Philadelphia Eagles (4-6) vs. New Orleans Saints (9-1)


Final Score: Saints 48, Eagles 7


Recap: This game was over before it started. The Saints came into this game after absolutely steamrolling the Bengals and averaging 42 points per game in their last 3 contests. Meanwhile, the Eagles were coming off a bad loss to the Cowboys and an overall tumultuous season. The New Orleans offense was clicking on all cylinders, posting 546 total yards and 6 touchdowns, while their defense picked off Carson Wentz 3 times and held the Eagles to under 200 yards. Philadelphia is in serious trouble, falling to 3rd place in the division and just one game ahead of the 4th place Giants. These next three divisional games for them will be critical.


New Orleans jumped out to a 17 point lead early in the 2nd quarter with touchdowns from Austin Carr and Mark Ingram. After an Eagles touchdown and a Saints punt, the Eagles had a golden opportunity pull within 3 before halftime. Unfortunately, a 6 play drive stalled at their own 49 yard line, and Drew Brees put together a crisp, 7 play drive to go up 24-7 at halftime. The game blew wide open after that; the Saints scored on 4 straight plays (3 TDs and a FG) and the Eagles failed to put any more points on the board. Both teams face division rivals next — the Saints play Atlanta on Thanksgiving night, while the Eagles head home to meet the Giants.


Notable Performances:

Philadelphia Eagles

Carson Wentz, QB: 19/33, 156 yds, 3 INT

Josh Adams, RB: 7 rush, 53 yds, 1 TD, 7.7 ypc; 3 rec, 19 yds

Golden Tate, WR: 5 rec, 48 yds


New Orleans Saints

Drew Brees, QB: 22/30, 363 yds, 4 TD

Mark Ingram II, RB: 16 rush, 103 yds, 2 TD. 6.4 ypc

Tre’Quan Smith, WR: 10 rec, 157 yds, 1 TD

Minnesota Vikings (5-4-1) vs. Chicago Bears (7-3)


Final Score: Bears 25, Vikings 20


Recap: The final score really doesn’t do the Bears’ dominant performance justice. Their defense manhandled the Vikings for all but the final 8 minutes of the fourth quarter. Minnesota couldn’t get anything going on offense due to the fact that Kirk Cousins was pressured throughout the game. The Viking couldn’t establish the run game to save their lives, which allowed Khalil Mack and company to pin their ears back and get after the quarterback. Down 22-6 late in the game, the Vikings made a valiant effort against a tiring prevent defense, but it just wasn’t enough to pull off the comeback. Both offenses turned the ball over three times and struggled throughout the game, but the play calling of Matt Nagy proved to be the difference maker in this battle for first place of the NFC North.


Although the Bears pass rush was in Cousins’ face throughout the game they only totalled two sacks on the day, but they also happened to cause two costly interceptions. Defensive back Eddie Jackson picked off Cousins and took it to the house in the 4th quarter, which proved to be the game winner for Chicago. Once the Bears loosened up on defense, Cousins was able to lead the team into the endzone on consecutive drives. Stefon Diggs was a major factor in the final 8 minutes, totalling 8 receptions for 73 yards and a touchdown. If not for a failed onside kick attempt, who knows what could have happened.


Notable Performances:


Minnesota Vikings

Kirk Cousins, QB: 30/46, 262 yds, 2 TD, 2 INT

Dalvin Cook, RB: 9 rush, 12 yds, 1.3 ypc

Stefon Diggs, WR: 13 rec, 126 yds, 1 TD


Chicago Bears

Mitchell Trubisky, QB: 20/31, 165 yds, 1 TD, 2 INT

Jordan Howard, RB: 18 rush, 63 yds, 3.5 ypc

Tyler Gabriel, WR: 7 rec, 52 yds

Kansas City Chiefs (9-2) vs. Los Angeles Rams (10-1)

Final Score: Rams 54, Chiefs 51


Recap: This Monday Night Football matchup featured two of the top teams in the league and was hyped up to be one of the best games of the year. Football fans were not disappointed, as this one became an instant classic. It was a true offensive shootout as Rams quarterback Jared Goff finished with 414 yards and 4 touchdowns through the air. On the other side, Patrick Mahomes had an outstanding game as well, finishing with 478 yards and 6 touchdowns. He benefited from a great game from wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who finished with 10 receptions for 215 yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough as Mahomes also threw three costly interceptions and the Chiefs suffered their second loss of the season.


The Rams offense got off to a hot start in this one, scoring the first 13 points of the game on two touchdown passes by Goff. Kansas City finally answered with a 25-yard touchdown pass from Mahomes to Kareem Hunt, and it was a back-and-forth contest after that, leading to a 23-23 game at the half. Los Angeles came out tough in the second half, scoring on a 7-yard run by Goff, which was followed by a 4-yard touchdown pass from Mahomes to Travis Kelce. The Rams ended the quarter with a 25-yard interception returned for a touchdown by Samson Ebukam to give them a 40-30 lead going into the fourth quarter. The Chiefs came firing back in the fourth, scoring on a 73-yard pass from Mahomes to Hill and a 2-yard fumble return by Allen Bailey to take a 44-40 lead. That was followed by a touchdown pass from Goff to Gerald Everett to regain the lead. Kansas City took the lead back on a touchdown pass from Mahomes to Conley but left too much time on the clock, as Los Angeles was able to take it back on a 40-yard touchdown pass from Goff to Everett with 1:49 left in the game. The Chiefs had the ball back with just under a minute left to play but came up short, as Mahomes threw an interception to Lamarcus Joyner to end the game.
