By Ian John
November 22, 2022

Week eleven is in the bag and we saw some superb efforts on defense, with a number of teams kept to single figures and we saw some surprise results, with the Giants humbled at home by the rampaging Lions who recorded their third win in a row, while the Titans enjoyed a rare win in Green Bay over the Packers.

The Falcons had a huge comeback win over the Bears while the Cowboys produced the performance of the week with a stunning 37-point win over the previously 8-1 Minnesota Vikings.

Every week of the NFL season, you can enjoy a wide range of bets at bet365 Sport which offers pre-match betting, as well as extensive In Play betting when the games are in action.

Remember this week is Thanksgiving which means that there are three games on Thursday night instead of the usual one and this week no team has a bye week, with the remaining teams due a bye set to have theirs on Weeks 13 and 14 of the season.

NFL Matchday 11 – Main Stories

Cowboys Run Riot Against Poor Vikings – Heading into this game the Cowboys were the underdogs against a Vikings side that had lost one game in the season and had just beaten the Bills. However, a stunning display on both sides of the ball saw the Cowboys run out comfortable 40-3 winners, casting real doubts over the Vikings claims as being a genuine Super Bowl contender. This was a huge statement win but the Cowboys need to keep this level of performance going.

Lions Make It Three Wins In A Row With Win Over Giants – The Detroit Lions are now the Vikings nearest challenge in the NFC North. A superb win on the road over the New York Giants means that Dan Campbell’s team not only move into second in their division, but also land a third victory in a row. I’ve said for a while Detroit are not as bad as their results were suggesting, I’m hoping that this is the start of their renaissance.

Steelers Find Some Offense But Not Enough Against Bengals – The Pittsburgh Steelers offense this season has been almost non-existent, but that is what happens when your offense consists of two rookies, plus a second year running back. Well, despite that, the Steelers put up an impressive 30 points against the Bengals in defeat and it was their much vaunted defense that cost them the win as they struggled to stop the Cincinnati offense. It may be another defeat, but it was one that offered hope for Steelers fans for the future.

49ers Make Statement In Demolition Of Cardinals – Losing Trey Lance may have actually helped the 49ers discover their form once again. I felt the way the 49ers used Lance early in the season would end in him getting injured and so it proved, But since Jimmy G stepped in the 49ers have found some consistency and they had their best performance of the season in a crushing win over their divisional rivals the Cardinals. With Kittle and Samuel also back in form, the 49ers look good for the remaining third of the season.

Titans Great Run Continues With Big Win In Green Bay – The Titans began the season 0-2 and since then have gone 7-1, with that single defeat a narrow overtime loss against the Chiefs. Consider this, the Titans have lost to the Giants converting for two in their season opener as time expired, and in overtime to the Chiefs. Otherwise they would be 9-1. And they have done that with Ryan Tannehill banged up and barely any passing offense over three of the last four games. They are a team to watch closely.

  • T Christian Darrisaw (Vikings) – Concussion – Ruled out for Thursday’s game

NFL Bonehead Play of The Week

It’s not a player or coach that win the bonehead play of the week, but an entire unit and it is the Jets Special Teams that lands this accolade.

Tying with their divisional rivals the New England Patriots 3-3, the Jets offense could not move the ball into field goal range on their final drive and so with time running our, they punted to put the Patriots deep in their own territory and seemingly to send the game into overtime.

However, the punt fell to New England rookie Marcus Jones who managed to elude the Jets special teams unit and run the ball back for a rare punt return for a game sealing touchdown. It was a sore way for the Jets to lose to a divisional rival and one that they should really have prevented.
