Week 11 of the NFL season once again proved that nobody knows anything that will happen on a Sunday afternoon in this league. Upsets dominated the headlines of the Sunday slate of games, leaving fans wondering who is the best team in the league.
Here’s a breakdown of the biggest moments and stories of Week 11.
Vikings Outlast Rodgers Magic
— Minnesota Vikings (@Vikings) November 21, 2021
The most exciting finish of Sunday belonged to the Minnesota Vikings. As time expired, the Vikings overcame a game-tying score from Aaron Rodgers and the Packers to kick a game-winner. Kirk Cousins played step for step with Rodgers in a vital game for the Vikings playoff aspirations.
With this loss, the Packers drop out of 1st place in the NFC and will get a bye week before a big matchup with the Rams.
Kansas City Defense Stifles Dallas Offense
SEAL IT SNEED‼️ 🤫
— Kansas City Chiefs (@Chiefs) November 22, 2021
The Dallas offense came into this one as one of the hottest units in the league. With the potential of Kansas City’s offense finally living up to its potential, the chances of this one being a shootout were highly likely. What fans got was a competitive defensive matchup that witnessed the Cowboys’ offense not scoring a single touchdown.
The Cheifs won a physical matchup that they desperately needed as they continued to find their confidence.
Texans Stun Titans
💲 Money Making Mitch 💲
— Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) November 21, 2021
The best team in the AFC faced the worst team in the AFC. As expected, the worst team dominated from start to finish pulling off the monster upset. The Titans were dreadful from the opening kick.
Dealing with weather that creates a recipe for an even playing field, the Texans’ defense had Titans QB Ryan Tannehill’s number all day, accumulating four turnovers on the day. No game is an automatic win in this league.
Jonathan Taylor Owns Buffalo

Another surprising outcome on Sunday was the Colts complete decimation of the Bills in Buffalo. Colts running back Jonathan Taylor finished the day with five total touchdowns on the way to a monster 41-15 victory. Buffalo has dropped two of their last 3 to inferior opponents and will have a short week to rebound, as the Bills will be in the nightcap of Thanksgiving football.
The Justin Herbert Star Continues To Grow
COME THRU HERBO
— Los Angeles Chargers (@chargers) November 22, 2021
The legend of Justin Herbert grew even larger Sunday night after the Chargers had another come from behind fourth quarter victory over the Steelers. A game that seemed to be in complete control by the Chargers turned into a perfect way to end a Sunday after the Steelers scored 27 points in the fourth.
The game-winning drive came when Herbert took the Chargers offense down in 3 plays for the go-ahead score, giving the Chargers a 37-41 victory over a returning Big Ben and the Steelers.
