NFL Week 11 schedule: 5 best games on the slate

The NFL Week 11 Schedule features the Texans VS the Ravens. We take a look at 5 of the best games in the NFL Week 11 schedule.

5. Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs

This AFC West clash is huge for both sides. If the Chiefs win, they move to 7-4 and stay in the hunt for the AFC’s second seed. If they lose, there’s a very good chance the Oakland Raiders take over first place in the division with a home date against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Chargers are 4-6 and now host Kansas City on Monday night in Mexico City. With a victory, they pull within one game of the Chiefs in the AFC West. With a loss, playoff hopes are completely dashed.

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints

This might not be the most attractive game on first glance, but think about it. The Buccaneers are 3-6 and out of the playoff chase, but should Jameis Winston play well and pull out a victory, that’s a signature moment for him as he approaches potential free agency. The Saints are coming off a hideous 26-9 loss to the Atlanta Falcons at the Superdome, so they are trying the defeat was a fluke. Losing to Tampa Bay would be cause for real alarm, all while pushing them further down the NFC playoff picture.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns

The Browns need to win. At 3-6, a loss all but ends any real hope of playing in January. Additionally, what can Baker Mayfield do against the Pittsburgh defense? The Steelers have been tremendous on that side of the ball throughout the year, adding Minkha Fitzpatrick while getting awesome production from age rusher T.J. Watt and rookie middle linebacker Devin Bush. If Pittsburgh wins, it’ll be 6-4 and a winner of five straight. Finally, look at the schedule. The Steelers might run the table until they play the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17. Might see the division on the line.

2. New England Patriots at Philadelphia Eagles

Both teams are coming off a bye. Both are fighting for playoff positioning. The Patriots are obviously in a better spot, 8-1 and holding the No. 1 seed in the AFC. New England is rolling, but a loss combined with a Baltimore win  would put the Patriots in the second slot. As for Philadelphia, it’s much more pressing. The Eagles are 5-4 and tied for first place in the NFC East. With the only path to the playoffs likely being a division title, every game is critical.

1. Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens

The highlight of the NFL Week 11 schedule. Deshaun Watson vs. Lamar Jackson. Game on.
