Week 11 NFL Gameday: Mitigating Minnesota Meltdown?
[lead align=”default”]Many eyes this Week 11 NFL gameday will be on the collapsing Minnesota Vikings.[/lead]
Losers of four straight games, the Vikings need to win today to avoid sinking to .500. They host the Arizona Cardinals, a team that sit at .500 and need to figure out their own crap.
It hasn’t been easy for Minnesota after starting at 5-0. They went from the best team in the NFC to out of the playoffs in the span of just four games. Arizona was never really in the mix, but if the Vikings can’t pull their heads from their keisters, they might be after today.
Some other key games are as follows:
Week 11 NFL Gameday: Tennessee at Indianapolis
The AFC South is led by Houston, though who knows how good they truly are. Both of these teams have a shot to be, at the very least, the second place team. Tennessee is in a surprising position at 5-5, while the Colts are also in a surprising position, not very good at 4-5. Indy has to have this game, but can they slow down a Titans offense that lit up Green Bay last week? Will Tennessee suffer a letdown?
Week 11 NFL Gameday: Philadelphia at Seattle
Seattle is one of the best teams overall, and in case you didn’t know, they beat the Pats in Foxboro. No time for a letdown as the Eagles have picked off several good teams this season. Unfortunately for them, the only team they’ve beaten on the road so far is Chicago.
Oh, and Seattle is undefeated at home.
Week 11 NFL Gameday: Green Bay at Washington
This is a tight game for wild card positioning. Green Bay still hopes to win the NFC North, but here’s the problem: they stink right now. It would be hard for them to look worse in Landover than they did in Nashville last week. Yet, if they lose today as Vegas assumes, the Packers are 4-6.
Meanwhile, Washington is 5-3-1 with a chance to continue to make their case. Not bad for a team that started the season 0-2, and unquestionably, they’re one of the hottest teams in the NFL now. This is a big swing game for both teams, but it’s imperative for the Packers to win.
