The Denver Broncos beat the Minnesota Vikings 21-20 in a thriller on Sunday Night Football. The Broncos needed 12 fourth quarter points, including a touchdown to Courtland Sutton with just over 1:00 to go in the game.
It was the third straight win for Denver, and pushed them to 4-5 on the season. Minnesota’s loss snapped their winning streak. The Vikings are now 6-4 on the season. Let’s take a look at some of the most interesting results from the Week 11 slate in the National Football League.
New York Giants 31-19 over Washington Commanders
Saquan Barkley got the party started with an early touchdown, and Darius Slayton scored one late. The New York Giants went to Washington and beat the Commanders on Sunday. Washington’s Sam Howell threw three interceptions, and a loss that was a killer for the home team. Washington is now 4-7, and seemingly out of the postseason picture. The win for the Giants was just their third on the season.
Detroit Lions 31-26 over Chicago Bears
The Detroit Lions needed 17 fourth quarter points to take down the Chicago Bears. It was quite a comeback, as Detroit did not score in the first or third quarter of the game. Jaed Goff was intercepted by the Chicago defense three times in the game. Justin Fields was terrific on the ground for the Bears, running the football 18 times for over 100 yards. DJ Moore had 7 receptions for 96 yards, but not enough as the Bears fell to 3-8. Detroit, with the win, is now 8-2.
Green Bay Packers 23-20 over Los Angeles Chargers
What a win for the Green Bay Packers. Kenny Clark came up with a huge deflection late in the game to seal the deal at home. The win for Green Bay pushed them to 4-6 on the season. The loss for the Chargers also sent them to 4-6. Jordan Love was solid for Green Bay, as he threw for 322 yards and two touchdowns in the game. In a losing cause, Keenan Allen finished with 10 receptions, 116 yards and a touchdown. The Packers have a short turn around before playing against the Lions on Thursday.
Cleveland Browns 13-10 over Pittsburgh Steelers
Wow! The Cleveland Browns are putting forth some big time effort. They are now 7-3 on the season, and 5-1 at home. Cleveland kicked a game winning field goal to move to 7-3 on the season, and a game ahead of the Steelers in the divisional standings. Dorian Thompson Robinson was the winning quarterback, and Cleveland won the game without a touchdown in the final three quarters of the game.
Los Angeles Rams 17-16 over Seattle Seahawks
Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams seemingly have the Seattle Seahawks number this season. After beating them in the season opener, the Rams came away with 10 points in the fourth quarter to beat them again on Sunday. Jason Myers missed a potential game winning field goal, which proved very costly. The loss sent the Seahawks to 6-4 on the season, which is no longer tied with the 49ers in the NFC West. Los Angeles picked up a monster win, as they have moved within two games.
Buffalo Bills 32-7 over New York Jets
The Buffalo Bills seemingly got back on track in this one. Josh Allen tossed for 275 yards, and three touchdowns, as the Bills smoked the New York Jets. Buffalo scored 16 first half points, and matched it in the second half, holding the Jets to just six in the game. The win for the Bills was almost mandatory, moving them to 6-5 on the season. Khalil Shakir had a breakout game, with 115 yards and a score.
There you have it. Some of the best games of the day. We get ready for Monday Night football between the Chiefs and Eagles, and then have a trio of games on Thanksgiving Day, starting with the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers and ending with the Seahawks and 49ers. Those are all before the Black Friday affair between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. Enjoy the games!
