Home » Recent NFL News (Nov. 18th) – Henry leads rushing

The Green Bay Packers look like they are cooked this season. The Packers lost at home to open Week 11 on Thursday night football. The Tennessee Titans defeated the Packers, the final score being 27-17. The Packers are now 4-7 and they sit 11th in the NFC standings with other teams still to play their games for Week 11.

With the win, Tennessee strengthened its position on top of its division. They are now 7-3 and they remain in first place in the AFC South. The second-placed team is Indianapolis, a club that is 4-5-1 and will have trouble catching up to the Titans this season.

Derrick Henry had 87 yards rushing in the game

Derrick Henry entered Week 11 as the second-placed rusher in the NFL. He rushed for 87 yards on Thursday night and that will move him into the top spot over Saquon Barkley. However, Barkley now has the game at hand. It’s very unlikely that Henry’s 87 yards will be a significant total for the week.

Randall Cobb appeared in the Thursday night game. He was a late activation for Green Bay and Cobb did not have a poor game. He was 6 for 6 on targets and received for 73 yards, the second-best total of his season.

Buffalo Bills lose home-turf advantage in Week 11

The Week 11 game between the Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns has been moved to Detroit. There is a winter storm in the Buffalo area and the NFL thought that it would be best to relocate their upcoming game. That should be to the advantage of the Cleveland Browns, a team that is 3-6 on the season and in desperate need of victories.

“The decision to move the game to Detroit has everything to do about safety,” Ron Raccuia, the Bills executive vice president and the chief operating officer, said. “Safety first has been what we’ve been talking about here, really for the last 48 to 72 hours.”

Baltimore Ravens are Week 11’s heaviest favorites

The Baltimore Ravens have the biggest spread to cover in Week 11. They are at -13.0 with bet365 sportsbook. The Ravens will host the Carolina Panthers, a team that will be without PJ Walker for the game. That means that the Panthers will need to go back to Baker Mayfield, a player that they benched after a poor start to the season. The Ravens vs Panthers match-up is the only game in Week 11 with a double-digit spread.

Philadelphia Eagles vs Indianapolis Colts: one to watch

An interesting game to keep an eye on in Week 11 will be the one between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Indianapolis Colts. The Eagles showed that they were mortal in Week 10. They lost on the stand-alone Monday night game as hosts. Furthermore, they were only hosting the Washington Commanders in the game.

Meanwhile, the Indianapolis Colts tallied a win last week. They had a new coach in Jeff Saturday and they went back to Matt Ryan for quarterbacking duties. It will be interesting to see if they can keep their momentum up.
