Week 11 Brings Further NFL Playoff Pressure & Hated Rivalries

Week 11 Brings Further NFL Playoff Pressure & Hated Rivalries

Once upon a time, an NFL odds matchup between Washington and Philadelphia was appointment viewing. The then-Redskins and Eagles would frequently clash for the highest of stakes. These days, the now-Commanders are wallowing in the bowels of NFL pretender status. While the Eagles are a perennial playoff team and potential Super Bowl champion. Week 11 will open with a Prime Video matchup between the Commanders and Eagles. Washington does have a new coach and quarterback. In turn, they hope for a change in the fortunes of the franchise that previous owner Daniel Snyder decimated.

Week 11 Overview

Head coach Dan Quinn, who led the Atlanta Falcons to the Super Bowl only to blow a 28-3 lead to the New England Patriots, arrives. Previously, he served as the defensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys. Meanwhile, 2023 Heisman Trophy winner Jayden Daniels is already number one on the Commanders’ depth chart. Also, journeyman 2014 Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota is the backup. Washington’s sports betting future is better than it was. But the payoff, if there is to be one, is far down the road.

In the early Sunday afternoon window, the oldest rivalry in pro football renews. Specifically, the Chicago Bears host the Green Bay Packers. Chicago will likely start as the number one overall pick of the 2024 NFL Draft. Namely, Caleb Williams. Williams is touted as the latest QB savior who replaced the last one, Justin Fields. The Bears quit on Fields after three years without offering him much of a supporting cast. Now, Fields is backing up Russell Wilson with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Williams will be going up against one of the most promising young QBs in pro football, Jordan Love. Last year, Love rallied the Packers to the NFC Divisional Playoffs. In turn, they nearly won at the eventual NFC champion San Francisco 49ers. The Packers won their final three games of the 2023 season to gain the playoffs. While the Bears won four of their final six games to finish 7-10 and with some hope for the NFL betting odds future.

Speaking of rivalries, one of the best in the current age of pro football will be renewed as the Buffalo Bills host the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City has been a painful thorn in the side of the Bills, especially in the playoffs. Last year, the Chiefs beat the Bills in Buffalo 27-24 in the AFC Divisional playoffs. Of course, the most memorable game between these teams was in the 2022 AFC Divisional Playoffs when the Chiefs pulled out a miraculous 42-36 overtime win in what is arguably the greatest game ever played.
