1. latest show: Week 11 winners and losers, plus full recap

it be Monday, which could most effective mean one issue: I stayed up unless 3 a.m. last nighttime recording a podcast with Will Brinson and Ryan Wilson that touched on everything you deserve to know about Week eleven, and let me simply say, it be likely for the top-quality that you simply hear. We covered all 12 video games from Sunday, which capability we likely spent a while speakme about your favorite group. 

One factor we do a week is hand out our weekly winners and losers from Sunday's action. right here's a look at who made our record.  

Ryan Wilson

  • Winner: Brett Maher (and every different Cowboys player). The Cowboys embarrassed the Vikings forty-3 in a game that became simply Dallas' better of the season. one of the crucial dazzling performances for the Cowboys came from Maher, who hit four container dreams, including a 60-yarder! The field purpose from 60 yards became the fourth of Maher's career from 60 or past, which is an NFL listing. 
  • Loser: Kenny Pickett. Ryan Wilson is the resident Steelers fan on the podcast and if the the Steelers have misplaced him, it should be would becould very well be time to bench Pickett and put Mitchell Trusbisky back in.
  • Will Brinson

  • Winner: Dan Campbell. It seems that all and sundry in Detroit might really be buying into Dan Campbell's philosophy of biting kneecaps off since the Lions truly bit off the Giants' kneecaps on Sunday. The Lions are actually on a three-video game profitable streak and their 31-18 dismantling of the 7-3 Giants was simply their most spectacular win up to now. 
  • Loser: Nathaniel Hackett. With the Broncos offense struggling, Hackett eventually gave up play-calling tasks and that gave the impression to provide the offense a small spark, but then Denver' protection melted down at the conclusion of the online game in a 22-sixteen extra time loss to the Raiders. Hackett cannot win no be counted what he does and his already sizzling seat is now the equal temperature because the floor of the solar.  
  • John Breech

  • Winner: Andy Dalton. as a substitute of benching Dalton, Saints educate Dennis Allen decided to keep on with the QB this week, and Dalton made the gamble pay off. Going up towards a troublesome Rams defense, Dalton had his foremost video game of the year, going 21 of 25 for 260 yards and three touchdowns, which gave him a virtually perfect QB rating (149.5). nearly as good as Dalton changed into, my other takeaway is that the Rams could just wish to pack it up for the season. when you are getting diced up through Andy Dalton, it could be time to simply delivery searching ahead to 2023. 
  • Loser: Zach Wilson and Robert Saleh. Wilson got eaten alive by way of the Patriots protection, which is never even the worst half, because opposing quarterbacks get eaten alive by invoice Belichick the entire time, the worst half is that he took zero accountability for his play. As bad as Wilson turned into, the Jets still could have received this online game in the event that they would have simply PUNTED THE BALL OUT OF BOUNDS at the end of rules. If the the coaching group of workers requires the punt to go out of bounds, then the game basically actually goes to time beyond regulation, but the Jets decided to test fate and destiny spoke back by using punching them within the face.

    2. Week eleven grades: Patriots get a B- for wild win over Jets, Chiefs earn a B+ for beating Chargers

    every week I team up with six of my colleagues here at to hand out grades, and this week, the Chiefs earned a B+ from our imaginary football school. 

    here's a look on the grades from two extremely good games that have been performed Sunday:

    Patriots 10-three over N.Y. Jets (click here for full recap)

  • Patriots grade: B-. The Patriots had an ugly offensive day, but they bought bailed out through their protection and a rookie returner who turned into the hero of the game. The Patriots have had some excellent defensive performances under bill Belichick, but this one became basically the most beneficial in at least one metric: Fewest yards surrendered. The Jets totaled simply 103 yards, which turned into the fewest the Patriots have ever given up under Belichick and the fewest the group had given up in any video game in view that 1988. The Patriots' brilliant protecting performance just about went to waste, however rookie Marcus Jones saved the day with a online game-winning 84-yard punt return TD in the ultimate seconds (you could see the play by means of clicking here). 
  • Jets grade: C. The Jets protection played well ample to win, but the identical really can't be noted about about their offense, which totaled simply TWO YARDS in the 2d half. The Jets couldn't do anything else on offense and that more often than not had to do with the proven fact that Zach Wilson looked absolutely lost while going up in opposition t bill Belichick's defense. Wilson didn't throw any interceptions, however he did finished just 40.9% of his passes for seventy seven yards. Oh, and let's no longer forget the proven fact that the Jets additionally had a unique teams meltdown when they gave up a video game-profitable punt return TD with five seconds left, however's a meltdown that could have been avoided if the teaching team of workers had just advised punter Braden Mann to kick it out of bounds, so the loss is as plenty on the teaching personnel as it is on the punt insurance group. 
  • Chiefs 30-27 over Chargers (click here for full recap)

  • Chiefs grade: B+. with a bit of luck Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce reduce the online game ball in half after closing nighttime's win because they both basically deserved to take it home, Mahomes changed into astounding all the way through the nighttime, but he became at his choicest within the final two minutes together with his group trailing 27-23. The Chiefs vital a landing to win and Mahomes labored up some magic with Kelce to make that take place. The Chargers recognize that Mahomes loves throwing to Kelce, however they nonetheless couldn't cease the duo. The Chiefs tight end caught six passes for one hundred fifteen yards and THREE touchdowns including the game-winner. That duo carried the weight for Kansas metropolis on Sunday, but they didn't do every thing. Isiah Pacheco had an enormous night that protected 107 rushing yards. The Chiefs don't currently have the superior record in the NFL, but they actually consider like the optimal team in the NFL presently. 
  • Chargers grade: B-. on every occasion the Chargers lose, they appear to do it within the most painful approach feasible and you can go forward and add this game to that checklist. Justin Herbert led the Chargers to a go-forward TD within the final two minutes, but the defense couldn't stop Patrick Mahomes, which ended up being the story of the 2d half for l. a.. The Chargers didn't drive a single punt within the 2d half and their inability to slow down the Chiefs offense (or stop Travis Kelce) ended up being their doom. The Chargers proceed to play 2nd fiddle in a division that is going to be pretty much impossible for them to win now that they've been swept with the aid of the Chiefs.

    three. NFL playoff photo heading into Monday nighttime

    With the NFL heading into Thanksgiving week, now appears like an excellent time to take our first wide seem to be on the playoff photo.

The Chiefs' closing opponents have a winning percentage of just .364. The Ravens have the 2d-easiest schedule at .366. To that in standpoint, each other AFC team has a closing strength of time table it really is at .440 or above and the Bengals have the third-most elaborate closing time table in the NFL at .614. Over the remaining seven weeks, the Bengals will play each group above them in the AFC playoff standings apart from the Dolphins, who they beat returned in Week 4.

    The Monday evening video game between the 49ers and Cardinals may have a massive have an impact on on the playoff standings. If the 49es lose, they will fall out of the seventh spot and the Commanders will bounce up and take their location. having said that, if the 49ers win, they may take over first location within the NFC West, a good way to vault them all the way up to the third spot.

Najee Harris scored on a 19-yard run towards the Bengals, which is exquisite, since it marked the first time this season that the Steelers had scored a TD of 10 yards or greater.

    5. Monday preview: Prepping you for 49ers vs. Cardinals country today

    The NFL can be wrapping up its foreign slate of games tonight with the 49ers and Cardinals kicking off from Mexico city in what might be a "home" online game for Arizona. With the Cardinals sitting at four-6, it seems like they deserve to win in the event that they wish to have any shot of staying vital in the NFC West, however successful may not be effortless as a result of Kyler Murray is out, which means Colt McCoy might be getting his second straght delivery. 

    My decent buddy Jared Dubin wrote our deep-dive preview for this online game here at, and right here's how he sees the video game enjoying out:

  • Why the 49ers can win: The 49ers have loads of offensive stars -- like Christian McCaffrey and Deebo Samuel -- and those stars might go off tonight with San Francisco getting ready to face a Cardinals team that has surrendered the third-most points per online game within the NFL this season. The 49ers have so many offensive weapons that it be complicated to think about the Cardinals slowing them all down. If this game turns right into a shootout, for you to almost actually choose San Francisco due to the fact it looks like the Cardinals won't have the ammo to sustain. 
  • Why the Cardinals can win: Being pressured to delivery your backup QB in this spot would not seem like an excellent situation, but the equal thing came about closing yr and Colt McCoy really led Arizona to a 31-17 WIN over the 49ers. McCoy is 3-1 because the Cardinals starting QB dating again to remaining season and he's finished well as a result of he plays smart soccer. If he spreads the ball around and doesn't make any error, he could supply the 49ers suits like he did ultimate season when he threw for 249 yards and a touchdown. however McCoy plays well although, the playing cards will want their protection to play stronger than it has over the past 4 weeks, which is a span the place Arizona has given up 29 elements per video game.

  • ONE PROP JORDAN LIKES: James Conner OVER forty nine.5 speeding yards (-139): "The 49ers have allowed a regular of simply eighty two.7 rushing yards per video game this season, which is ranked 2d within the NFL, but I still like Conner right here as a result of this quantity feels too low. Colt McCoy has all started four career video games for the Cardinals and in those 4 video games, Conner has averaged 66.5 dashing yards and if he receives close that quantity, he'd hit the over effectively."
  • ONE PROP i admire: Robbie Gould OVER 7.5 aspects (-one hundred fifteen): There have been three video games performed in Mexico metropolis due to the fact that 2016 and in these three games, the six kickers involved have averaged 9.4 facets per video game. The high elevation in Mexico city -- it's 2,000 feet bigger than Denver -- makes it plenty less complicated to kick the ball because the ball travels farther through thinner air. groups comprehend this and that i believe it makes them greater inclined to effort container dreams, which means more features and extra facets capability this over will hit. 
  • eventually, when you are wondering who we're opting for, right here's who we have tonight in a game the place the 49ers are currently appreciated with the aid of 10 facets.

    Dubin's pick: 49ers 24-10 over CardinalsSullivan's pick: 49ers 28-18 over CardinalMy pick: 49ers 34-24 over Cardinals

    6. rapid-fire roundup: Giants battered by injuries

    it's been a  busy weekend in the NFL, and since it be well-nigh unimaginable to hold track of every little thing that happened, I went ahead and put collectively a roundup for you. 

  • Giants lose Wan'Dale Robinson for the season. The Giants were already had concerns with depth at receiver and people issues have now gotten worse as a result of the lack of Robinson, who tore his ACL on Sunday and is out for the season. Robinson is considered one of six Giants gamers who were knocked out of the online game on Sunday. besides Robinson, that listing includes: Adoree' Jackson (knee), Fabian Moreau (ribs), defense Jason Pinnock (jaw), center Jon Feliciano (neck) and appropriate tackle Tyre Phillips (neck). Jackson is anticipated to omit four-6 weeks with an MCL sprain, according to it's no longer clear how critical the different 4 injuries are, however with the Giants taking part in on Thursday this week, it might not be extraordinary at all if a number of of them are forced to pass over the game. 
  • Kyle Pitts positioned on injured reserve: The Falcons could be without their second-12 months tight end for at the least the next 4 video games after he changed into positioned on injured reserve. Pitts changed into restricted to 24 snaps towards the Bears after struggling a knee harm. Pitts has 28 catches for 356 yards and two TDs this season.
  • Odell to discuss with with two NFC East groups. The NFL receiver is planning his first free agent visits. in accordance to, Beckham is planning to consult with with both the Cowboys and Giants after Thanksgiving. With these two groups taking part in each different Thursday, it would not be fantastic if Beckham ends up signing with the crew that wins besides the fact that the Giants arguably want him more as a result of the fact that they have got nearly zero receiving depth at the moment. 
  • Justin Fields suffers shoulder injury. The Bears quarterback injured his left shoulder late in the video game throughout Chicago's 27-24 loss to the Falcons. it's now not clear how severe the harm is, but if Fields is out for any colossal amount of time, we will likely go ahead and write the Bears off, however this is only in case you haven't already written them off. 
  • Matthew Stafford knocked out of online game. The Rams season keeps going from bad to worse. After missing Week 10 because of a concussion, Stafford returned on Sunday towards the Saints most effective to be knocked out of the online game once once again. With the Rams sitting at 3-7 and their season spiraling out of handle, it wouldn't be dazzling if the Rams decide to shut him down once they're hopelessly out of the playoff race. 
  • Vikings lose key starter for Thanksgiving. Vikings left handle Christian Darrisaw was knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Cowboys with a concussion and despite the fact he at last cleared protocol, Kevin O'Connell has determined to play it safe. The Vikings teach announced that Darrisaw might not be playing in opposition t the Patriots in a game that should be played on Thursday nighttime. 
  • Patriots may also be missing a key offensive linemen. David Andrews suffered a thigh injury towards the Jets, and based on, the damage is critical enough that it may conclusion his season. If that's the case, it could be a brutal loss for a Patriots crew this is currently sixth within the AFC playoff race. 
  • Commanders moving forward with Taylor Heinicke. There might not be a QB controversy in Washington. After watching his crew beat the Texans 23-10, Commanders coach Ron Rivera introduced that Heinicke could be conserving the starting QB job. With Carson Wentz expected to be fit enough to play quickly, there turned into some speculation that Washington may turn returned to him, however that now won't be the case.
