LockedIN On The NFL Week 11 Recap

The Good, The Bad and The NFL Week 11

What an interesting week in the NFL. Tons to talk about from the Return of Nick Foles to JAMAL ADAMS and the New York Jets taking it to the Redskins. Let’s take a look at what went on!

The BALTIMORE RAVENS rushed for 263 yards in their 41-7 win over Houston in Week 11.

Baltimore, with 2,038 rushing yards through its first 10 games of the season, is the seventh team since 1970 and first since the 1978 NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (2,029 rushing yards) with at least 2,000 rushing yards in its first 10 games of a season. The Ravens’ 2,038 rushing yards are the fifth-most through a team’s first 10 games of a season since 1970.

Quarterback LAMAR JACKSON, who had 86 rushing yards, has recorded at least 60 rushing yards in seven consecutive games, surpassing MICHAEL VICK (six games in 2004) for the longest such streak by a quarterback in league annals. Jackson has 1,483 career rushing yards, surpassing CAM NEWTON (1,447) for the most by a quarterback in his first two seasons in NFL history.

Houston wide receiver DEANDRE HOPKINS had seven receptions, including the 600th of his career, in Week 11. At 27 years and 164 days old, Hopkins is the second-youngest player in league annals to reach 600 career receptions, trailing only LARRY FITZGERALD (27 years and 110 days old).

The MINNESOTA VIKINGS overcame a 20-0 halftime deficit to defeat Denver, 27-23, in Week 11. The Vikings are the first team in the regular season since the SAN DIEGO CHARGERS (vs. San Francisco on December 20, 2014), who trailed 35-7 at halftime and won 38-35 in overtime, to overcome a halftime deficit of at least 20 points and win.

Dallas quarterback DAK PRESCOTT passed for 444 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions for a 116.6 rating in the Cowboys’ 35-27 win at Detroit.

Prescott has four games with at least 375 passing yards and two touchdown passes in 2019, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer JOE MONTANA (four games in 1990) for the most such games through their team’s first 10 games of a season in NFL history. Only PEYTON MANNING, who had six games with at least 375 passing yards and two touchdown passes in 2013, had more in a full season.

Atlanta quarterback MATT RYAN passed for 311 yards with one touchdown and zero interceptions for a 111.1 rating in the Falcons’ 29-3 win at Carolina.

Ryan, currently in his 12th season, has 60 career games with at least 300 passing yards and joins DREW BREES (67 games) as the only quarterbacks with at least 60 such games in their first 12 seasons in NFL history.

Ryan has 49,383 career passing yards and surpassed Pro Football Hall of Famer WARREN MOON (49,325 passing yards) for the 10th-most passing yards in NFL history.

Carolina running back CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY recorded 191 scrimmage yards (121 receiving, 70 rushing) along with 11 receptions in Week 11. McCaffrey has seven career games with at least 10 catches, surpassing LARRY CENTERS (six) and Pro Football Hall of Famer LADAINIAN TOMLINSON (six) for the most by a running back in NFL history.

Since entering the NFL in 2017, McCaffrey has 12 career games with at least 50 rushing yards and 50 receiving yards, tied with HERSCHEL WALKER (12 games) for the most such games by a player in his first three seasons in NFL history.

McCaffrey, who has 1,576 scrimmage yards and 14 scrimmage touchdowns in 2019, is the fifth player in NFL history with at least 1,500 scrimmage yards and 14 scrimmage touchdowns in his team’s first 10 games of a season, joining Pro Football Hall of Famers ERIC DICKERSON (1983), O.J. SIMPSON (1975) and EMMITT SMITH (1995) as well as AHMAN GREEN (2003).

Buffalo quarterback JOSH ALLEN passed for 256 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions for a 117.7 rating and added 56 rushing yards with a touchdown in the Bills’ 37-20 win over Miami.

Allen, who has 13 passing touchdowns and seven rushing touchdowns in 2019, joined CAM NEWTON (2011-12) as the only players with at least 10 passing touchdowns and seven rushing touchdowns in consecutive seasons in NFL history.

Allen recorded his 15th career rushing touchdown in his 22nd career game, the second-fewest games to reach 15 career rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in NFL history. Only CAM NEWTON (18 games) reached 15 career rushing touchdowns in fewer games among quarterbacks.

Miami kick returner JAKEEM GRANT, in his fourth NFL season, had a 101-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in Week 11, his second career kick-return touchdown of at least 100 yards.

Grant, who also has two career punt-return touchdowns of at least 70 yards, is the fourth player in NFL history with at least two kick-return touchdowns of 100 yards and two punt-return touchdowns of 70 yards in his first four seasons, joining TED GINN (2007-10), TRINDON HOLLIDAY (2011-14) and Pro Football Hall of Famer OLLIE MATSON (1952, 1954-56).

Sam Darnold had a massive day tossing a career-high four touchdown passes lead the New York Jets to a 34-17 win against the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon and Richard Bailey was in Landover Maryland with My4one2 keeping out #Sport fans #LockedIN.

Darnold was 19 of 30 passing with 293 yards and tossed touchdowns to Daniel Brown, Robby Anderson, Ryan Griffin and former Redskins receiver Jamison Crowder to help New York win its second in a row. 

New York Jets safety JAMAL ADAMS had three sacks in the team’s 34-17 win at Washington.  Adams, who had two sacks in Week 10, is the third defensive back to record at least two sacks in consecutive weeks since 1982, when the individual sack became an official statistic, joining AARON BEASLEY (Weeks 5-6 in 2000) and CARNELL LAKE (Weeks 14-15 in 1997).

Adams’ five sacks over a two-week span are tied with CARNELL LAKE (five sacks in Weeks 14-15 in 1997) for the most by a defensive back over a two-game span since 1982.​

The Jets (3-7) sacked Redskins rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins six times, including three by safety Jamal Adams, and linebacker Neville Hewitt intercepted him in his return to the lineup. Le’Veon Bell ran for a 1-yard TD, and New York reached 400 yards of offense for the first time in 20 games.

Washington (1-9) set a franchise record by going 16 consecutive quarters without a touchdown before Derrius Guice scored on a 45-yard screen pass early in the fourth. Haskins was 19 of 35 passing for 214 yards and threw TD passes to Guice and tight end Jeremy Sprinkle in his first game since being named starter for the rest of the season.

The Jacksonville Jaguars  have signed veteran tight end Nick O’Leary on Monday. With Seth DeValve injured and Josh Oliver getting dinged up yesterday, the only healthy tight end on the active roster was Ben Koyack.
Originally drafted in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, O’Leary has 44 receptions for 596 yards and 3 touchdowns in his five-year career.

The Kansas City Chiefs held on to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers, 24-17, in a thriller at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City on Monday night.

Leading by seven points with just 24 seconds left, Chiefs’ safety Daniel Sorensen picked off Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers in the end zone to seal the victory for Kansas City. The play – Rivers’ fourth interception of the night – capped off an impressive showing by the defense to defend Kansas City’s lead late, helping the Chiefs move to 7-4 on the year.
