Ten weeks into the 2022 NFL season and the final undefeated team has fallen. Philadelphia turned the ball over four times as Washington stunned the Eagles at home on "Monday Night Football," no doubt to the delight of the '72 Dolphins and their fans. The Eagles are now tied with the Vikings for the best record in the league at 8-1 after Minnesota defeated Buffalo 33-30 in an overtime thriller that has already been dubbed the "game of the year."
Will Week 11 submit another candidate for this distinction? The good news is that there appear to be several matchups on tap that may be able to deliver. It starts on "Thursday Night Football" with Tennessee making the rare trip to Lambeau Field to play Green Bay. The Packers may have saved their season with a 31-28 overtime win over Dallas last week but must deal with a short week to face the AFC South-leading Titans.
On Sunday, the aforementioned Bills will be looking to snap a two-game losing streak when they face the Browns in a game that was relocated to Detroit due to a winter storm that is expected to hit the Buffalo area. The Eagles will try and bounce back on the road against a Colts team that won its first game under interim head coach Jeff Saturday. The only divisional game in the 1 p.m. ET window finds the Jets in Foxboro to face the Patriots. Both teams are coming off of their bye and have a chance to tie idle Miami for first in the AFC East with a win. (Buffalo can make it a three-way tie with a win.) New England has defeated New York 13 straight times, the most recent victory coming just a few weeks ago.
Other early games include Chicago at Atlanta, Detroit at the New York Giants, and the Los Angeles Rams in New Orleans to face the Saints. The defending Super Bowl champions have lost three in a row and are facing a must-win situation on the road without reigning AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year Cooper Kupp, who was put on injured reserve due to the ankle injury he suffered in last Sunday's loss to Arizona.
Later on Sunday, there is a pair of divisional matchups in Las Vegas-Denver and Cincinnati-Pittsburgh. The Raiders and Broncos are both desperate to turn things around while the Bengals come off of their bye hoping to keep pace with the Ravens in the AFC North. The other offering could be the best game of the entire week when the Cowboys head to Minneapolis to face the Vikings. Dallas is coming off of a loss but is still 6-3 while Minnesota is the hottest team in the league with seven straight wins. This game could have huge playoff implications in the NFC.
