2023 NFL season, Week 11: What We Learned from Sunday's games
Brock Purdy is perfect in win. Purdy is on a heater, folks. After posting a career-high passer rating of 148.9 in a blowout win over Jacksonville last week, he outdid himself on Sunday, recording a perfect 158.3 rating in the Week 11 triumph over Tampa Bay. He completed all but four of his 25 pass attempts, operated with incredible efficiency, found George Kittle -- who was seemingly wide open all day -- for a pretty touchdown from three yards out, connected with Brandon Aiyuk for the 49ers' longest score of 2023 (a 76-yard reception) and got Christian McCaffrey back in the touchdown game with a 4-yard pass. He could do no wrong, racking up 333 passing yards in what was arguably the best game of his career. The three-game losing streak feels like it happened months ago, and the 49ers are humming with Purdy at the controls.

Separation season: Which teams helped/hurt their playoff chances Sunday?
It’s time to stop being surprised by the Texans, even though quarterback C.J. Stroud did not have his best day. Their victory over the Arizona Cardinals leap-frogged them over the Steelers, putting them into the AFC’s sixth seed and keeping them just on the heels of the Jacksonville Jaguars, who beat the Titans on Sunday, in the AFC South. The Texans beat the Jaguars earlier this season, and that sets up an immensely important game next Sunday, when the Jags visit Houston. Stroud will have to be cleaner than the three interceptions he threw deep in Cardinals territory, but after Jacksonville, only one of the Texans' final six opponents currently has a winning record (Browns, in Week 16).

"I have full confidence like I've told you -- and like I've told you from the beginning -- I have full confidence in our way of playing. I have full confidence in myself as the play-caller. And the way that we teach and the way that we scheme. Full confidence in that," Staley told reporters. "We've got to bring this group together and do it consistently, and that's where it's at.

Browns set to sign veteran QB Joe Flacco to practice squad
A 14-season veteran, Flacco memorably led the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl win over the San Francisco 49ers to conclude the 2012 season. He played 11 seasons with the Ravens, one with the Denver Broncos and three for the New York Jets, including last season.

Lions QB Jared Goff shrugs off boos, three INTs to lead comeback win over Bears
"So, here's what we know about Goff: At the very least, he's going to be mentally tough and physically tough, and you can always count on that," Lions head coach Dan Campbell said after the game. "You can bank on that. Today, he showed his resiliency, and when we needed those plays, he showed up in no-huddle mode."
