NFL Winners and Losers: Who Has Philip Rivers’ Number? !
Week 11 wasn’t a good week for the star quarterbacks, but even more so for the backfield monsters. The biggest beneficiary of the day was not even on the pitch. The winners and the losers.
WINNER: LAMAR JACKSON – Quarterback, Ravens: Missed the Ravens due to viral illness – and once again showed how fundamentally important he is to offense. A monster contract should await him in the spring.
TYROD TAYLOR – Quarterback, Texans: Made a big comeback after a disastrous performance the week before! Led the Texans to their second win of the season this season, scoring two rushing touchdowns in the process.
KIRK COUSINS – Quarterback, Vikings: threw some unsightly deep balls that he was lucky enough to play, but overall a strong performance from Captain Kirk. Defeated the Packers with his Vikings despite major issues with the O-line.
JUSTIN JEFFERSON – Wide Receiver, Vikings: The young receiver’s next monster performance! Led Minnesota to victory with 169 receiving yards and two touchdowns, currently one of the best receivers in the NFL!
JALEN HURTS – Quarterback, Eagles: The Eagles have found their new identity in their rushed attack around their QB and Hurts is absorbed in it. Once again, he played well against the Saints and could in fact be a longer term starter in Philly.
JONATHAN TAYLOR – Running Back, Colts: Dominant, Dominant, Jonathan Taylor! Not only did he cross the 1,000-yard mark against the Bills this season, with over 200 yards and five touchdowns, he put in an absolute monster performance.
KYLE VAN NOY – Linebacker, Patriots: Was sacked in Miami, but bloomed again at his old workplace. Dominated against the Falcons and found everywhere. Because of him, the Patriots’ defense is so strong right now.
JIMMY GAROPPOLO – Quarterback, 49ers: Now has the starting job with the Niners firmly in hand. He showed his next good game of the season against the Jaguars. Jimmy G rarely plays dramatically, but currently very solidly.
DEEBO SAMUEL – Wide Receiver, 49ers: The Niners offense seems to be back. The main reason: Deebo Samuel. Recorded just one catch against the Jaguars, but is now also convincing as a racer. A real all-rounder!
TAYLOR HEINICKE – Quarterback, Washington: The quarterback’s second strong appearance in the last two games! Thrown three touchdowns against the Panthers. If he keeps this form, a permanent start-up job can await him.
JOE MIXON – Running Back, Bengals: In a long and difficult game in Las Vegas, Mixon was ultimately the better man. He ran 123 yards and scored 2 touchdowns against the Raiders. He scored in the seventh game in a row.
CHRIS JONES – Defensive lineman, Chiefs: Jones dominated the Cowboys on the line of scrimmage at will. In the end there were 3.5 sacks, 2 tackles for loss, a deflection of the pass on the line and a fumble conquered. What a game!
MICAH PARSONS – Edge Rusher, Cowboys: Despite the Cowboys going bankrupt, Parsons once again proved he has great potential as an Edge Rusher. He had 2 sacks and 3 QB hits as well as plenty of pressure.
COLT MCCOY – Quarterback, Cardinals: Despite repeated failures from Kyler Murray (and DeAndre Hopkins), the Cards also beat the Seahawks and thanks to the strong performance of McCoy (328 YDS, 2 TD) they are again number 1 in the NFC.
JUSTIN HERBERT – Quarterback, Chargers: Exceptional performances. He brought several scopes of highlights to the man and also made some great ground plays. He led his Chargers to an important victory over the Steelers.
AUSTIN EKELER – Running Back, Chargers: The running back also played a really good game. Ekeler has once again demonstrated his versatility. He scored four touchdowns and established a very important block shortly before the end of the game.
LOSER: TENNESSEE TITANS: Team after team has come and gone over the past few weeks, but now injury issues seem to be a problem after all. The loss to the Texans was a bad patch.
BUFFALO BILLS: The Bills appeared to be the second AFC contender alongside the Titans – and they were disappointed on every level this week as well. Buffalo’s defense in particular fell short of expectations.
ATLANTA FALCONS: Atlanta seemed to come back slowly a few weeks ago, followed by two absolutely disappointing performances. The offensive against New England was completely canceled. Is rebuilding happening now?
MATT NAGY: The air is getting thinner and thinner for the Bears head coach. Against Baltimore, Chicago disappointed again and even lost against Lamar Jackson’s replacement. If he is lost to the Lions, Nagy could fly.
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS: Trevor Siemian isn’t the quarterback’s answer, it became obvious against the Eagles. In this form, the Saints probably aren’t a playoff contender. Is the franchise calling Philip Rivers now?
BAKER MAYFIELD – Quarterback, Browns: Currently playing heavily damaged – and it shows on the pitch. Next poor performance against the Lions. Is Cleveland’s permanent QB response? The question marks keep getting bigger.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS: The offense can’t find a rhythm, the defense is full of holes. The bottom line is that the Seahawks have also lost to Cardinals who had been weakened to replace them and are basically out of the playoff race – even before Thanksgiving.
DAK PRESCOTT – Quarterback, Cowboys: I never really made the game against KC, had two picks and a few imprecise throws and just wanted to force a lot. It was one of the reasons the cowboys went bankrupt.
LAS VEGAS RAIDERS: Third consecutive loss and fifth in the last seven games. He got too close offensively, made too many mistakes and broke up defensively late in the game against Cincy. The season came to a halt after a good start.
