NFL Week 11 schedule: 5 best games to watch

The NFL Week 11 schedule is loaded with terrific games, and these five are the best the weekend has to offer.

5. Pittsburgh Steelers at Los Angeles Chargers (-6)

What to make of both these teams? Each has five wins and some impressive moments, but each also look atrocious at other times. The Steelers are coming off such a moment, only being able to tie the winless Detroit Lions last weekend. Meanwhile, the Chargers lost to the three-win Minnesota Vikings at home, falling to 5-4 and behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West. Which one of these teams gets going and wins a sixth game?

4. Cincinnati Bengals (-1) at Las Vegas Raiders

This feels like a playoff game. The Raiders and Bengals are both 5-4 and have two consecutive losses coming into the showdown at Allegiant Stadium. Las Vegas was humbled last week, falling 41-14 to Kansas City on Sunday night. The Bengals, after losing to the New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens, were on their bye week. Whoever wins get a critical tiebreaker, but whoever loses is looking at a free-fall scenario in the AFC playoff picture.

3. Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills (-7)

The Bills might be the most complete team in the AFC, but they’ve found themselves in a fight for the division with the New England Patriots. New England is only a half-game back and with two matchups left, anything can happen. For Buffalo, beating the underdog Colts at home would be a nice victory, but it won’t come easy. Indy has won four of its last five and comes into western New York looking to eclipse the .500 mark for the first time this season.

2. Green Bay Packers (-1) at Minnesota Vikings

The NFC North is already decided for all intents and purposes. The Packers are 8-2 and could be the best team in the NFL, while the Vikings, in second place, are 3.5 games back at 4-5. For Green Bay, this is a key game as it tries to get the top seed in the NFC playoffs. For Minnesota, it’s an all-out battle for a wild card spot and the chance to pull off a huge upset come January. Beating the Packers in the first of two tilts with them would be a huge step.

1. Dallas Cowboys at Kansas City Chiefs (-2.5)

Best game of the week and a potential Super Bowl preview. Dallas is 7-2 and coming off a 43-3 thrashing of the Atlanta Falcons. The Cowboys have the best offense in football and the likely Defensive Rookie of the Year Micah Parsons. Meanwhile, the Chiefs appear to be coming alive, winners of three straight including a 41-14 beating of the Raiders. Expect fireworks.
