Week 11 in the NFL starts off with an NFC South showdown between the 3-6 Panthers and 4-5 Saints. The Saints beat the Panthers in Week 6 in a high scoring 41-38 shootout. It should be an exciting game to start off the week, even with Carolina underachieving (much like the Bengals).
Fast forward to Sunday, the Bengals vs Bills game will not be seen in many markets on Sunday afternoon. If you live outside of western New York or the Cincinnati area, you likely won’t have the game on your network TV. The game is actually on FOX this week, despite being an AFC matchup and will be called by Thom Brennaman, Charles Davis, Chris Spielman and Holly Sonders. Here are the NFL TV maps for Week 11, via 506sports.com.
Sunday Night Football sees the Green Bay Packers travel to Washington. The teams last met in the Wild Card round of last season’s playoffs, a game the Packers won 35-18. Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been playing like his normal self and the Packers have lost four of their last five games, with their only win in that span coming over the Bears. Can the Redskins get revenge and churn out a win at home?
The week ends in Mexico City, Mexico as the Raiders “host” the Texans at Estadio Azteca, the stadium of the professional Mexican football (soccer) team Club América. It will be the second regular-season NFL game to take place at the stadium and the first Monday Night Football game ever played outside the United States. The Raiders are red hot at 7-2 and the Brock Osweiler-led Texans aren’t too shabby at 6-3. That seems pretty amazing considering how poor Osweiler’s play has been. It’s almost painful at times watching him play so it will be interesting to see how he does against a Raiders team that has been exceeding expectations.
