It's Week 11 in the NFL and last week certainly didn't lack for intrigue or excitement and it also produced a couple of more key injuries. Now past the halfway point of the season, every remaining game becomes critically important, especially for teams with playoff aspirations.
And a matchup rife with postseason implications will kick things off in Week 11 when Arizona and Seattle go at it on "Thursday Night Football." This is the second meeting between these division rivals with the Cardinals taking the first in overtime back in Week 7. They also are the team with more momentum after last Sunday's thrilling, last-second victory over Buffalo on the Kyler Murray-to-DeAndre Hopkins Hail Mary while the Seahawks have lost two in a row and no longer are in first place in the NFC West.
On Sunday, the 1 p.m. slate features an AFC Championship Game rematch between Tennessee and Baltimore. Both team teams are very much in the hunt for a wild-card berth but both are coming off of crushing losses last week. Another intriguing game has Green Bay in Indianapolis in a pairing of division leaders while Pittsburgh looks to stay undefeated on the road against Jacksonville.
The Atlanta-New Orleans game also will draw plenty of interest with Drew Brees sidelined indefinitely because of fractured ribs and a collapsed lung. Whether it's Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill (likely a combination of the two) at quarterback, the Saints will put their six-game winning streak and potentially first place in the NFC South when they take on the Falcons.
The later window has Miami looking to stay hot when the Dolphins face the Broncos out in Denver. A sixth straight win by Miami would tie the Dolphins with Buffalo (on bye) record-wise for first place in the AFC East. Minnesota also will try and extend its winning streak to four in a row when the Vikings take on the Cowboys, who are coming off of a bye hoping to snap their four-game losing streak.
The Sunday action wraps up with a key AFC West showdown between Kansas City and Las Vegas. The Raiders won Round 1 against the defending Super Bowl champs, who are coming off of a bye and eager to show on "Sunday Night Football" that they are still the team to beat in the division.
And on "Monday Night Football," the Rams make the cross-country trek to Tampa Bay to face a Buccaneers team that bounced back in a big way in beating the Panthers. A win could put either team in first place in their respective divisions, depending on the outcome of other games.
