NFL Week 11 Summary

NFL Week 11 Summary

The 1972 Miami Dolphins are the only team to complete a season -- including playoffs -- without a loss. Many of the living members of that team pop some champagne when the final unbeaten team loses each NFL season. That happened in Week 11 when Kansas City was beaten 27-17 at Denver. The game featured a combined winning percentage of .944 (Chiefs 9-0, Broncos 8-1), the best combined percentage between opponents this late in a season since the 1970 merger. The Broncos were 7.5-point favorites and thus covered, but it was a rare Denver game to go under the total, which was set at 44.

The biggest upset of Week 11 was Oakland as a 10.5-point dog winning 28-23 in Houston, handing the Texans their eighth straight loss. The Raiders won behind undrafted free agent quarterback Matt McGloin as the former Penn State player threw three touchdown passes in his first NFL start. He became the first undrafted rookie quarterback to throw at least three TD passes without a pick in a game in the common draft era (since 1967).

There was a potential Super Bowl preview on Monday night as Carolina beat visiting New England 24-20, with the Panthers covering the spread by a point. That nearly wasn't the case. Pats QB Tom Brady threw a pass from the Carolina 18 into the end zone on the final play of the game and it appeared that Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly interfered with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. A flag was thrown, meaning New England would have had a free play at the Panthers' 1, but then it was picked up for no reason given. That decision also potentially cost total bettors as the game stayed under the 46.5.

The highest-scoring game of Week 11 was Tampa Bay 48, Atlanta 21 (over 43.5), while the lowest-scoring was Miami 20, San Diego 16 (under 44.5). Overall, nine of the 15 games went over the total. The favorites covered nine of the 15.
