Week 11 in the NFL features a slew of good matchups, with seven of the eight teams in playoff contention. Rivalries, some old and some new, dominate the television schedule today. Here is a look at the television games in Los Angeles for week 11:â†µ
It's not quite the days of Terry Bradshaw and Kenny Stabler, but this is a matchup of two AFC teams tied for first, with the 5-4 Raiders looking for a signature road win outside of their division.â†µ
Before the season, this looked like a battle for the division, with both teams likely headed for the playoffs. Instead, both teams are looking up at the Bears, but the Packers can tie Chicago with a win against the plummeting Vikings.â†µ
The marquee matchup of the day gives us not only Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady, but a battle of perennial playoff teams of the last decade. Give the edge to New England, who is 4-0 at home against the Colts, who are 2-3 on the road this season.â†µ
Both teams are 6-3, and the winner of this game would have the inside track at the NFC East, and potentially a first-round bye, although it does seem a little early to forecast such things.
