NFL Week 11 Sunday Recap

Grace Higgins | November 18th, 2019

Jets 34, Redskins 17

• The inconsistent Jets offense showed flashes of brilliance today. Darnold tossed four touchdown passes and Jamal Adams sacked Haskins three times.

Jaguars 13, Colts 33

• Brissett returned as the Colts quarterback, although he only passed for 148 yards and a touchdown. Both Marlon Mack and Jon Williams rushed for over 100 yards on the day as the Colts remain in the AFC playoff picture.

Bills 37, Dolphins 20

• The Bills defense only allowed 23 rushing yards from the Dolphins. The Bills offense was clicking, as Josh Allen threw three touchdown passes, two of which went to John Brown. The Bills are in reach for the AFC East division title, if only the Patriots would slow down.

Cowboys 35, Lions 27

• Pay Dak Prescott. He passed for 444 yards and three touchdowns, as both Cobb and Gallup had over 100 receiving yards. The Cowboys are positioned to win the NFC East as the Lions continue to be pushed out of the NFC playoff picture.

Texans 7, Ravens 41

• The quarterback matchup of the week disappointed, as Watson only passed for 169 yards. Lamar Jackson continued his brilliance, totaling 308 yards and four touchdowns against the Texans defense. The Ravens are a lock to win the AFC North division.

Falcons 29, Panthers 3

• This is why the Falcons are one of the most frustrating teams of the decade. The past two weeks, they’ve blown out perennial playoff teams, but are unable to pull it together for the bad teams. Ryan passed for 311 yards and one touchdown; 143 yards of which went to Calvin Ridley.

Saints 34, Buccaneers 17

• Winston and interceptions go together like peanut butter and jelly. He threw four interceptions, meanwhile Brees passed for 228 yards and three touchdowns. The Saints are battling with multiple teams in the NFC for the top two seeds.

Broncos 23, Vikings 27

• This was shaping up to be the upset of the day, as the Broncos were leading 20-0 at halftime. The Vikings stormed back behind 319 passing yards and three touchdowns from Cousins. The Broncos were on the goal line with three opportunities to win, but the Vikings defense held them.

Cardinals 26, 49ers 36

• This was a one score game until the final play, when the 49ers angered some bettors with a fumble recovery touchdown. Garoppolo passed for 424 yards and four touchdowns to keep the one-loss 49ers the number one seed in the NFC.

Patriots 17, Eagles 10

• A different looking box score than the Super Bowl two years ago. Both quarterbacks were held in check, as the defenses battled for field position all evening. Brady prevailed, passing for 216 yards.

Bengals 10, Raiders 17

• The Bengals remain winless as Josh Jacobs rushed for 112 yards. The rookie running back is battling with Kyler Murray for the Rookie of the Year award.

Bears 7, Rams 17

• The Rams defense needed to win this game for them, as the Bears offense has struggled all season in embarrassing fashion. Gurley rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown to give the Rams a much needed win on Sunday Night Football.
