Top 5 Games for NFL's Week 11 Schedule

A loaded prime-time slate includes a divisional game in Mexico City and an AFC West rematch from Week 2.

One of the bright spots of Week 11 of the 2022 NFL season is the return of interesting prime-time games. That's right — no more Commanders-Bears or Colts-Broncos. 

Thanks to the NFL's flex scheduling, the league moved Chiefs-Chargers to "Sunday Night Football" in place of Bengals-Steelers. That means that the three prime-time games will make it into the weekly top five for the first time since Week 4.

The strength of night games will take away from the Sunday afternoon slate, but there are still several intriguing matchups that couldn't crack this list. The Colts are a classic trap game for the no-longer-undefeated Eagles, and the Browns are heating up at the exact right time to play the stumbling Bills. Plus, Raiders-Broncos has incredible dark humor potential.

Keep those games on your radar Sunday afternoon, but the meat of the Week 11 slate will come at night. Let's break down the best of what this weekend has in store.

Top 5 Games of Week 11

5. Titans vs. Packers, Thursday at 8:15 p.m.

The Packers finally ended their five-game losing streak and still have a viable path to the playoffs. But they'll need to win competitive games like this to have any chance. Tennessee is 6-3 but looks beatable, considering it has a minus-two point differential and has been held to 17 points in each of the last three games.

4. 49ers vs. Cardinals (Mexico City), Monday at 8:15 p.m.

The NFL returns to Mexico for the first time since 2019 for what should be an exciting game. Kyler Murray's health is in question, but even if he can't go, Colt McCoy is one of the more competent backups in the league — as illustrated by Arizona's 10-point win over the Rams last week. And with both teams in the wild-card hunt, this game could go a long way to determining which team actually gets to play deep into January.

3. Jets vs. Patriots, Sunday at 1 p.m.

The Jets have lost 13 straight to the Patriots and haven't beaten them in regulation since 2011. They were favored when they met three weeks ago but gave the game away with three Zach Wilson interceptions. Now the series shifts to Foxborough, and with the loser likely to fall to last in this competitive division, stakes could hardly be higher.

2. Cowboys vs. Vikings, Sunday at 4:25 p.m.

Minnesota's win over Buffalo last week announced its arrival as a true contender, and now the Vikings will get another big test. Dallas is coming off a hugely disappointing loss to the Packers and will be looking to bounce back. The Cowboys could be getting Ezekiel Elliott back, although that may not be that big of an addition considering how Tony Pollard has played lately.

1. Chiefs vs. Chargers, Sunday at 8:20 p.m.

This game was electric when they played on "Thursday Night Football" in Week 2, so we can only hope Mahomes-Herbert the sequel is half as good. A Chargers would cut their deficit in the division to just one game, although the flip side is that the Chiefs could open a seemingly insurmountable three-game edge (plus the tiebreaker) with another win.
