It is crazy to think it is already week 11 of the NFL season. There are also some interesting divison matchups in the NFL for week 11. With teams starting to hit the back end of their schedule, here are a few games that have some meaning behind them in the NFL week 11 Slate.
Jets @ Patriots
From the outside, this game may seem a bit weird compared to some others. However, the Jets are a win away from being tied with the Dolphins for the division lead. This Jets team has been a really good squad this season. Once they lost Breece Hall, most assumed this team would go south quickly. Then, after they lost to the Patriots at home, they came back and beat the Bills. Now off the bye, this team has a chance for first in the division. The Jets have a really good defense, and they run the ball pretty well with Michael Carter and James Robinson. The Jets need this win badly, and they would get a great reward if they were to get the win.
For the Patriots, they are also coming in off a bye after a win against the Jets and Colts. It’s hard to tell what the Pats are this year, as they have seemingly been up and down a lot. Matthew Judon has been playing really well for them, and defensively they are starting to improve. The offensive side has had its issues here and there, but they can be effective on the ground. A win for the Patriots puts them right back into the fight for the division. A win would also give them a tiebreaker over the Jets if it comes to it. This would be a huge win for the Pats on Sunday.
Cowboys @ Vikings
These teams find themselves in two different situations coming in. Not only that, there seems to be a weird line around this NFL week 11 game. The Vikings are coming in off a humongous win over the Bills. This Vikings team just finds ways to win and hang on. Justin Jefferson has been lights out as well, coming off a monster day last week. Dalvin Cook is even starting to look better as the weeks go on. The move of Adding TJ Hockenson for the Vikings has made life easier for Kirk Cousins as well. This team has weapons everywhere and look like they could be one of the teams to go the distance. Being home dogs this week, this win would be another nice one to keep the momentum rolling .
As for the Cowboys, they come into the game off a 14 point blown lead over a Packers team that was clinging to life in this season. Dak Prescott played alright but to give up a 14 point lead and lose looks bad on him, and even on the head coach. Mike McCarthy’s homecoming last week did not go to plan. Going into this week, this would be a huge win for the Cowboys. With the NFC East looking so much better, they need every win they can get. 7-3 looks a lot better than 6-4. Getting Ezekiel Elliot back for this game would help out a lot. This team as an offense is at best when they can run the ball with him and Tony Pollard. This should be a fun evening window game.
Chiefs @ Chargers
I think this could end up being the game of the week. This game was just recently flexed into the Sunday night window as well. Coming off a win against the Jaguars, this Chiefs team looks to be playing really well. Adding Kadarius Toney looks like it was a great move for them. From what they have used him for so far, he could be an elite weapon for them. JuJu Smith-Schuster has slowly been becoming more reliable as well, but his status for the game is in question with the scary hit he took. When it comes to the backfield, all three of their backs are seeing time. This Chiefs team is using all of their weapons, and they continue to impress. In this important division matchup, a win for this squad could basically lock up the division. With the Broncos looking awful and the Raiders looking lost, this win right here could basically clinch them a playoff spot most assumed they would get anyway.
For the Chargers, there is a chance they could get revenge for last time they played. The last game saw the Chiefs win, and Justin Herbert injured his ribs. Coming into the game, this Chargers season has been a bit of a disappointment. With all of the injuries to the team and some of the bad breaks, this team has just not been able to escape the hole they are in. Coming in at 5-4, this is a must win game for the division. If they do not win this game, the only chance this team will have for playoffs is a wildcard spot. With Kennan Allen and Mike Williams both questionable again this week, it might be another short handed week for this Chargers team.
