Week 11 of the 2020 NFL season has 12 games on Sunday
Week 11 of the NFL season continues on Sunday, Nov. 22, with 12 games on the schedule. This is the last week with four teams on bye — the Bills, Bears, Giants, and 49ers are all resting this week — so football fans will get a more packed slate the rest of the way.
Perhaps the biggest game of the week already took place on Thursday, but there are still plenty of big games with playoff implications. In a matchup of first-place teams, the Colts and Packers are jockeying for seeding in their respective conference. The Browns and Eagles are both squarely in the playoff hunt despite owning negative point differentials. And then there's the rematch of Titans-Ravens from this January, with both teams at 6-3.
Seven of the 12 games are in the early slots, but there should still be some strong quarterback play in the late afternoon and evening. No matter what part of the country your in, CBS will be broadcasting either Tua Tagovailoa or Justin Herbert, and Patrick Mahomes and Co. will be showing off on "Sunday Night Football."
So if you're wondering "What NFL games are on today?" know this: There are 12 scheduled for today, Sunday, Nov. 22.
Note: Games are ordered by start time. All times are ET.

Philadelphia at Cleveland, 1 p.m. on FOX
There are more similarities between these teams than you might expect from just looking at their numbers. If nothing else, the matchup of Carson Wentz vs. Baker Mayfield could go any direction since they have been two of the most unpredictable quarterbacks this season. The winner will see their playoff odds rise back above .500.
Atlanta at New Orleans, 1 p.m. on FOX
The Falcons have won three of four games since firing Dan Quinn, but they have yet to face a winning team during that span. That changes today. Although Drew Brees will not be suiting up. In his stead, the Saints are turning to Taysom Hill, who will get his first start since playing at BYU. Time will tell if he can handle starting duties, but it should be fascinating to watch.
Cincinnati at Washington, 1 p.m. on CBS
The teams aren't great — they each only have two wins — but this game will showcase the top two picks in April's draft, Joe Burrow and Chase Young. Burrow has played admirably behind a mediocre offensive line and has a 59.0 QBR (24th), 65.4 percent completion rate (23rd), and is averaging 6.7 yards per (27th). Young has been the best pass rusher in a mediocre class and leads all rookies with 3.5 sacks.
Detroit at Carolina, 1 p.m. on FOX
Avert your eyes if you like offense. Your favorite fantasy players probably aren't playing today. Christian McCaffrey (shoulder), D'Andre Swift (concussion), and Kenny Golladay (hip) have all been ruled out, and Teddy Bridgewater (knee) will be a game-time decision.
Pittsburgh at Jacksonville, 1 p.m. on CBS
The Steelers are 9-0 but have struggled lately; three of their last four wins have come by five points or fewer. The Jaguars, meanwhile, have lost nine in a row but the last two have been by a combined seven points. Could we have an upset on our hands?
Tennessee at Baltimore, 1 p.m. on CBS
It feels like a lifetime ago, but these teams met in the playoffs just 10 months ago. The Titans were 10-point underdogs and won by 12. Today they enter as six-point underdogs. Both teams are 6-3 and in second place in their respective divisions, so there is a lot on the line.
New England at Houston, 1 p.m. on CBS
Amazingly, the Patriots are on their first winning streak of the season at two games. They also have yet to have a player cross the 500-yard threshold from scrimmage. Watch out for Damien Harris to finally break that barrier against the league's worst rush defense.
Miami at Denver, 4:05 p.m. on CBS
Get on board the Dolphins bandwagon while there's still space. Miami is riding the league's No. 5 scoring defense to a five-game winning streak, the league's best after Pittsburgh and New Orleans. Tagovailoa will get another chance to shine against a Broncos defense that has given up 144 points over the last four weeks.
New York Jets at Los Angeles Chargers, 4:05 p.m. on CBS
The Jets have found a way to lose every game this season, many in spectacular fashion. Win Never for Trevor is very real. But the Chargers also happen to have a supernatural ability to lose games they should win. Just look at how they have the third-best total offense but the 17th-ranked scoring offense. This game could be a masterclass in heartbreaking play.
Green Bay at Indianapolis, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
This game pits the league's best total defense against perhaps the league's most talented quarterback. It should be the best game on tap all weekend, even if the Indy offense is filled with no-name players. Sooner or later fans will get to know this impressive AFC power.
Dallas at Minnesota, 4:25 p.m. on FOX
This sure looked like a postseason preview when the schedule was initially released, huh? Even without Dak Prescott or a competent Vikings defense, this game still has the potential for fireworks with an impressive corps of skill position players. Both teams have poor pass defenses, so look for big games from Amari Cooper, Justin Jefferson, CeeDee Lamb, Adam Thielen, and Michael Gallup.
The last time these two teams met, the Raiders dealt the Chiefs their only loss of the 2020 season. Las Vegas went into Arrowhead and posted a season-high 40 points on KC. Expect a lot of points once again in primetime, as Mahomes is scary enough to defend when he doesn't have extra motivation.
