We are heading into the ladder part of the season as week 11 is upon us starting with Thursday Night Football when the 5-4 Pittsburgh Steelers travel to face the 3-6 Cleveland Browns. That is just one of many NFL week 11 games to watch. Believe it or not, the Browns are still fighting for a playoff spot in a weak AFC and the Steelers would stay with the pack if they got the win. Games like these have many interested and a lot of eyes are going to be glued to their screen.
NFL Week 11 Games To Watch
Bears vs Rams
The Chicago Bears will take on the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football. At the beginning of the year, this game was thought to be between two great teams but that’s not the case. The Bears have struggled on offense and haven’t been the same on defense because they have more of a load to carry. They are 4-5 and still in a playoff race but Mitchell Trubisky doesn’t seem to be the answer for this team.
The Rams went to the super bowl last season and looked like they were going to be a dominant team for years to come. This year they don’t look like that at all. Jared Goff has taken a step back and head coach Sean McVay isn’t having the same impact as his first year. The offense isn’t anywhere near what they were last year. The defense is middle of the pack and doing just enough but the offense hasn’t helped. They sit at 5-4 and still in a playoff race but time is running out for both teams. This is a huge game for both as they try to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Chiefs vs Chargers
This is a huge divisional game on Monday Night Football. The Kansas City Chiefs look like a middle of the pack team at 6-4 and that’s exactly how you describe the Los Angeles Chargers at 4-6. The Chargers are still in the division race as well as the wild card. They could be within a game of the Chiefs with a win.
The Chiefs meanwhile are in front of the pack in the AFC West but not only are the Chargers on their tail but the Oakland Raiders are just a game behind. The Chiefs have to start playing better and fast cause not only can the division lead get lost but the wild card is not a lock either. A win this week for them would put them in a good position for both races. The Chargers have been struggling but they always play the Chiefs tough. This is going to be a great game to watch.
Patriots vs Eagles
This is not so much a big game for the New England Patriots as it is for the Philadelphia Eagles. The Patriots are coming off of their bye week. This game is on Sunday Night Football and last time they were on primetime, they got embarrassed and was handed their first loss of the season. They don’t want that to happen again. This time, they are facing an Eagles team who is still trying to figure out who they are.
They sit atop of the NFC East at 5-4 along with the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles are in a tight race in the division and their best bet is to win it right now. This is the Super Bowl match-up from a couple of years ago but instead of Nick Foles under center, it’s Carson Wentz. Wentz has to get this team on track and take over. This game will be the talk of the week.
Texans vs Ravens
This is a very good matchup in week 11. It might not be the most popular teams facing each other but this game will tell us a lot. The Houston Texans over the years have fallen short of the good teams. Deshaun Watson is playing on another level this year and they can run the football. They need the defense to come up big when needed and they will get a challenge going up against Lamar Jackson.
Jackson can run and he does it a lot. He can be the first quarterback to pass for over 3,000 yards and rush for over 1,000 yards. Even though the Ravens are 7-2, there still is a lot to be seen and that goes or the Texans as well. A win for Houston would give them more space in the division and would tie records with the Ravens for the number two seed in the AFC.
Under The Radar Games To Watch:

- Arizona Cardinals vs San Francisco 49ers
- New Orleans Saints vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
