Week 11 of the 2022 season is in the books, and while we saw plenty of movement in our season-long NFL QB competition, the top four from a week ago remained the same.

Despite playing much better football this week, Josh Allen dropped out of the top five but not by much. In fact, spots five through seven are separated by mere fractions of a point. And with one of seven A+ performances — the most of any week this entire season — Jimmy Garoppolo moved into the top 10 for the first time.

But before we get to who had the other six, let’s first take a look at our reserve room, which includes a few guys who could or should be down in the featured section a week from now.

  • Bailey Zappe: 86.4
  • Colt McCoy: 81.7
  • Teddy Bridgewater: 81
  • Carson Wentz: 77.7
  • Cooper Rush: 77
  • Joe Flacco: 76.2
  • John Wolford: 75
  • Jameis Winston: 75.5
  • PJ Walker: 75.1
  • Mitch Trubisky: 74.5
  • Skylar Thompson: 72.2
  • Brett Rypien: 68
  • Sam Ehlinger: 66.4
  • Bryce Perkins: 65
  • Malik Willis: 60.8

And without further ado, here’s a look at the featured 32, starting with a new (but previous) name at the bottom.


32. Baker Mayfield, Carolina Panthers (1-5)

Week 11 Stats: 21-33, 196 yards, 0 TD, 2 INT; 2 rushes, 12 yards
Week 11 Grade: D

Welcome back to the basement, Baker Mayfield.

With PJ Walker on the shelf, the 2018 No. 1 overall pick returned to the Panthers’ starting lineup on Sunday against the Ravens, and things didn’t go well.

Carolina scored just three points in the 10-point defeat, with Mayfield throwing a pair of picks. The Panthers haven’t won on the road in more than a year, their last win away from home coming last year on November 14 in Arizona.

Is Sam Darnold ready to go yet?

2022 NFL Season Stats: 119-206, 1,313 yards, 6 TD, 6 INT; 16 rushes, 52 yards, 1 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 70.1

31. Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh Steelers (2-4)

Week 11 Stats: 25-42, 265 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT; 2 rushes, 14 yards
Week 11 Grade: B-

For more than half of Sunday’s Week 11 matchup between the Steelers and Bengals, it seemed as if Kenny Pickett could lead his team to a second upset of the defending AFC champions for the year.

The Pittsburgh offense often has trouble scoring points, which is why the Steelers are the second-lowest scoring team in the NFL, but the first-rounder led four scoring drives before the half and a fifth in the third quarter to give his team a 24-23 lead.

But the Steelers managed just one more score after that and took a 37-30 loss. But there was a lot of good to take away from Pickett’s performance, including the fact that he was interception-free for the second straight week. He’s probably also very excited to be out of the cellar in our season-long standings.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 155-237, 1,426 yards, 3 TD, 8 INT; 29 rushes, 163 yards, 3 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 71.9

30. Davis Mills, Houston Texans (1-8-1)

Week 11 Stats: 19-33, 169 yards, 0 TD, 2 INT; 5 rushes, 10 yards, 1 TD
Week 11 Grade: F

Remember early in the year when Davis Mills and the Houston Texans at least looked competitive in losses (or a tie)? That’s not been the case for a while now, and it certainly wasn’t on Sunday as they took a 23-10 loss to the Commanders that didn’t even seem that close.

Mills was sacked five times and was picked off twice, including a pick-six from Kendall Fuller to get Washington on the board early, earning the second-year starter his lowest passer rating of the year at 46.2.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 203-328, 2,144 yards, 11 TD, 11 INT; 17 rushes, 38 yards, 1 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 73.7

29. Zach Wilson, New York Jets (5-2)

Week 11 Stats: 9-22, 77 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT; 3 rushes, 26 yards
Week 11 Grade: F

I seriously came within seconds of creating an F- grade just so I could give it to Zach Wilson for his abysmal outing in the New York Jets’ 10-3 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday, which marked Gang Green’s 14th straight loss to Bill Belichick.

And then I wanted to create an even lower grade for the 23-year-old taking zero accountability for his play in his postgame presser. If Robert Saleh wants to continue this comeback season for New York, he should seriously consider getting Joe Flacco back on the field.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 105-189, 1,279 yards, 4 TD, 5 INT; 24 rushes, 94 yards, 1 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 73.9

28. Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos (3-6)

Week 11 Stats: 24-31, 247 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT; 1 rush, 8 yards
Week 11 Grade: B-

The good news for Russell Wilson in Week 11 was that he had his most efficient game of the year to date, completing a season-high 77.4% of his passes for 247 yards.

The bad news is that not one of those 24 completions resulted in a touchdown, as the Broncos took a 22-16 loss to the Raiders in overtime. And one of those incompletions was a game-changing moment, as it allowed Las Vegas a lot more time to tie the game in regulation.

But at least he didn’t throw an interception this week, his first pick-free game since October 17.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 179-301, 2,227 yards, 7 TD, 5 INT; 33 rushes, 129 yards, 1 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 74.7

27. Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams (3-6)

Week 11 Stats: 11-18, 159 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT; 1 rush, 4 yards
Week 11 Grade: B+

It might be time for Sean McVay to just shut down Matthew Stafford for the year.

After missing last week’s game with the Cardinals due to a concussion, the 34-year-old left the game in the third quarter of the Rams’ Week 11 matchup with the Saints with the same issue. With the 27-20 loss, the defending champs are now 3-7 and essentially out of playoff contention, so it’s certainly not worth putting Stafford’s long-term health in jeopardy to finish out a lost year.

What makes this so frustrating is that he was playing some of his best football of the season before his departure, earning a 126.8 passer rating by completing 61.1% of his passes for 159 yards with two touchdowns and no picks.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 206-303, 2,087 yards, 10 TD, 8 INT; 13 rushes, 9 yards, 1 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 77.4

26. Marcus Mariota, Atlanta Falcons (5-6)

Week 11 Stats: 13-20, 131 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT; 13 rushes, 25 yards, 1 TD
Week 11 Grade: B

Marcus Mariota may not consistently put up big numbers for the Atlanta Falcons, but he’s keeping them alive in the NFC South race.

Mariota accounted for just 156 yards of offense against the Bears on Sunday but completed 65% of his passes, threw for a touchdown, and ran for another in the 27-24 victory.

Atlanta is now just a half-game back of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but faces a tough test in Week 12 against a Commander defense that hasn’t been kind to quarterbacks in recent weeks.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 156-251, 1,878 yards, 13 TD, 7 INT; 76 rushes, 372 yards, 4 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 78.1

25. Mac Jones, New England Patriots (4-3)

Week 11 Stats: 23-27, 246 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT; 2 rushes, 3 yards
Week 11 Grade: B

It’s remarkable that the Patriots didn’t score a touchdown on Sunday against the Jets, given how well Mac Jones threw the football.

While the second-year signal-caller never found the end zone, he completed a career-high 85.2% of his passes and watched with the rest of us as Marcus Jones got him a 10-3 victory by returning a punt 84 yards for a touchdown with five seconds remaining.

This was a big win for New England as Jones & Co. will own the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Jets if a playoff spot comes down to that. And given their upcoming schedule, they had to have this win to keep themselves in the hunt.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 134-195, 1,386 yards, 4 TD, 7 INT; 27 rushes, 81 yards, 1 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 78.3

24. Taylor Heinicke, Washington Commanders (4-1)

Week 11 Stats: 15-27, 191 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT; 3 rushes, 2 yards
Week 11 Grade: C

I feel Washington fans are getting a little too hyped up about Taylor Heinicke, who will stay under center for the Commanders for the foreseeable future, even when Carson Wentz is ready to roll.

Sure, Washington is winning football games, but let’s not pretend Heinicke is the reason why. Facing a bad Texans team, he failed to complete 60% of his passes for the third straight week and was unable to hit the 200-yard mark for the second time in three games. He also hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass the last two weeks.

The good news is that Heinicke didn’t throw an interception for the first time all year. He just better hope the Washington defense keeps his win-loss record looking better than Carson Wentz’s.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 90-148, 1,031 yards, 5 TD, 4 INT; 20 rushes, 62 yards, 1 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 79.2

23. Justin Fields, Chicago Bears (3-8)

Week 11 Stats: 14-21, 153 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT; 18 rushes, 85 yards, 1 TD
Week 11 Grade: B-

Justin Fields wasn’t quite as dynamic on Sunday against the Falcons as he’s been the last few weeks, but he was still pretty solid, completing two-thirds of his passes for 153 yards and a touchdown while adding 85 yards and a score on the ground.

However, the second-year star threw a crucial interception with 1:07 remaining to seal Chicago’s fate in a 27-24 loss, the Bears’ third consecutive defeat by three points or less and their fourth straight loss overall.

But the big concern for the Bears isn’t the loss. Fields dislocated his left shoulder but played through the pain, and while he’s listed as day-to-day, there’s a chance he could be lost for the year. And if Matt Ebeflus is smart, he won’t rush him back, as there’s no chance the Bears are making the postseason. Or he could just shut him down, which wouldn’t be a bad move, either.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 136-228, 1,642 yards, 13 TD, 8 INT; 122 rushes, 834 yards, 7 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 79.4

22. Matt Ryan, Indianapolis Colts (4-4-1)

Week 11 Stats: 23-32, 213 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT; 1 rush, 1 yard
Week 11 Grade: C+

For the second time this season, Matt Ryan and the Indianapolis Colts put themselves in position to upset one of the elite teams in the NFL as they took a 13-3 lead into the fourth quarter against the one-loss Philadelphia Eagles.

But unlike Week 3, when they were able to hang on against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Colts couldn’t finish and lost a heartbreaker, 17-16, as the defense couldn’t contain Jalen Hurts in the final frame.

As he’s been for most of the season, Ryan was plenty efficient, reaching the 70% completion mark for the sixth time in his last seven outings. And for the second straight week, he didn’t turn the ball over, which Colts fans have to be feeling good about. But he also failed to throw a touchdown and took five sacks, the last of which came on a crucial 3rd & 9 in the final minute.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 247-357, 2,443 yards, 10 TD, 9 INT; 17 rushes, 50 yards, 1 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 79.7

21. Daniel Jones, New York Giants (7-3)

Week 11 Stats: 27-44, 341 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT; 7 rushes, 50 yards, 1 TD
Week 11 Grade: C+

Given how things have gone for the Giants this year, one would think that Daniel Jones completing 61.4% of his passes for a season-high 341 yards and a touchdown would be enough to get New York a win.

But outside of holding an early 6-3 lead, the Giants were never really in their Week 11 matchup with the Lions and took a 31-18 loss heading into their Thanksgiving Day showdown with the Dallas Cowboys.

After not having thrown an interception since all the way back in Week 3 against those same Cowboys, Jones tossed a pair in Sunday’s loss, which certainly didn’t help New York’s cause.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 183-281, 1,937 yards, 9 TD, 4 INT; 76 rushes, 437 yards, 4 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 80.3

20. Andy Dalton, New Orleans Saints (3-5)

Week 11 Stats: 21-25, 260 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT; 2 rushes, -2 yards
Week 11 Grade: A+

Remember a week ago when I said the Saints might want to give Jameis Winston another shot? Well, Andy Dalton must have taken that personally as he put on a near-perfect performance in New Orleans’ 27-20 win over the Rams.

Dalton connected on 21 of 25 targets for a season-best 84% completion rate and threw for 260 yards and three touchdowns, including an impressive 53-yarder to Chris Olave with Aaron Donald barreling down on him. After two weeks of struggles, it was an excellent bounceback effort for the “Red Rifle.”

2022 NFL Season Stats: 162-242, 1,819 yards, 14 TD, 7 INT; 19 rushes, 32 yards
2022 NFL Season Score: 81.15

19. Jacoby Brissett, Cleveland Browns (3-7)

Week 11 Stats: 28-41, 324 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT; 7 rushes, 29 yards
Week 11 Grade: A+

There wasn’t much more Jacoby Brissett could have done to get the Cleveland Browns a win on Sunday.

Facing arguably the best defense in the NFL in the Buffalo Bills, the veteran completed 68.3% of his passes for a season-high 324 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions. But it wasn’t quite enough, as the Browns’ defense couldn’t stop the Buffalo offense in a 31-23 loss.

Brissett earned a 116.3 passer rating in the loss, marking the third time in his last four outings that he’s reached triple digits in that category. In that same four-game stretch, he’s thrown five touchdowns and no picks. But he’s likely down to just one more start, as Deshaun Watson is eligible to return in two weeks.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 213-331, 2,398 yards, 11 TD, 5 INT; 45 rushes, 211 yards, 2 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 81.23

18. Jared Goff, Detroit Lions (4-6)

Week 11 Stats: 17-26, 165 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT; 4 rushes, -1 yard
Week 11 Grade: C+

Jared Goff certainly didn’t play his best game of the year in the Lions’ Week 11 matchup with the New York Giants, and it ultimately didn’t matter as Detroit still earned a 31-18 upset victory to take some momentum into their Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Bills.

Goff failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time since the Lions’ loss to Dallas on October 23 but also didn’t throw an interception for the second straight week and the third time in four games. His biggest contribution was continuing to feed the ball to running back Jamaal Williams, who rushed for 64 yards

2022 NFL Season Stats: 209-327, 2,442 yards, 15 TD, 7 INT; 21 rushes, 42 yards
2022 NFL Season Score: 81.5

17. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals (3-6)

Week 11 Stats: N/A
Week 11 Grade: N/A

Kyler Murray sat out his second straight game as his Arizona Cardinals were embarrassed in Mexico City on Monday night by the San Francisco 49ers.

If Murray sits out again in Week 12 against the Chargers, we’ll get Colt McCoy down here in the featured section.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 240-360, 2,168 yards, 12 TD, 6 INT; 59 rushes, 359 yards, 2 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 82.3

16. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers (4-7)

Week 11 Stats: 24-39, 227 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT
Week 11 Grade: A-

Aaron Rodgers played a solid football game against a good Tennessee Titans team on Thursday night, but it wasn’t enough to get the Green Bay Packers a second straight win.

The two-time reigning NFL MVP completed 61.5% of his passes for 227 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the 27-17 loss, and the 4-7 Packers now face a must-win situation in Week 12 on the road against the 9-1 Philadelphia Eagles.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 243-376, 2,542 yards, 19 TD, 7 INT; 16 rushes, 64 yards
2022 NFL Season Score: 82.4

15. Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings (8-2)

Week 11 Stats: 12-23, 105 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT
Week 11 Grade: F

Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings saw their seven-game winning streak come to a humiliating halt on Sunday as they were steamrolled by the Dallas Cowboys, 40-3. The 11-year veteran also saw his 39-game streak of throwing at least one touchdown pass come to an end.

Cousins couldn’t get the Vikings’ offense moving at all, completing just 12 of 23 passes while taking a season-high seven sacks, the first of which resulted in a lost fumble that the Cowboys converted into three points.

At 8-2, Minnesota still holds a commanding four-game lead in the NFC North. But Cousins & Co. have been exposed a bit and will need to rebound quickly as the Vikings have a Thanksgiving date with the New England Patriots.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 239-377, 2,461 yards, 14 TD, 8 INT; 21 rushes, 50 yards, 2 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 82.685

14. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys (3-2)

Week 11 Stats: 22-25, 276 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT; 3 rushes, 16 yards
Week 11 Grade: A+

If the version of Dak Prescott we saw on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings shows up the rest of the way for the Dallas Cowboys, the rest of the NFC should be concerned.

The two-time Pro Bowler was essentially flawless in the Cowboys’ 40-3 romp, completing 88% of his 25 pass attempts for a season-high 276 yards and a pair of touchdowns before being pulled in the fourth quarter.

With the Giants taking a loss to the Lions, the 7-3 Cowboys moved into second place in the NFC East and will square off with New York on Thanksgiving Day. Dallas already owns a victory over the Giants, earning a 23-16 win in Week 3.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 103-152, 1,132 yards, 8 TD, 4 INT; 17 rushes, 67 yards, 1 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 82.693

13. Derek Carr, Las Vegas Raiders (3-7)

Week 11 Stats: 23-37, 307 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT
Week 11 Grade: A+

A week ago, Derek Carr was extremely emotional as he played well enough to give his Raiders a win they didn’t get, losing 25-20 to the Colts.

The three-time Pro Bowler had another solid game on Sunday against the Broncos, and this time it was enough as Las Vegas earned a hard-fought 22-16 victory in overtime. Carr and Davante Adams connected seven times for 141 yards and a pair of scores, the second being the game-winning 35-yarder to give the Raiders the walk-off win.

The TD also gave Carr a season-high 307 passing yards.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 217-348, 2,435 yards, 15 TD, 5 INT; 15 rushes, 67 yards
2022 NFL Season Score: 82.728

12. Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans (6-2)

Week 11 Stats: 22-27, 333 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT; 3 rushes, -3 yards
Week 11 Grade: A+

Ryan Tannehill and the Tennessee Titans aren’t getting as much love as some other AFC teams, perhaps due to their weaker schedule. But make no mistake about it. This team is for real. And if Tannehill plays anywhere close to how he did on Thursday night against the Packers, they could make some noise in the postseason.

The 10-year veteran completed a season-high 81.5% of his passes against Green Bay and threw for a season-best 333 yards with a pair of touchdowns in Tennessee’s 27-17 victory, his only mistake of the night being a fourth-quarter interception that proved to be inconsequential.

After an 0-2 start, the Titans have now won seven of their last eight, their only loss coming in overtime to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9 when Tannehill was out.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 136-209, 1,685 yards, 10 TD, 4 INT; 24 rushes, 38 yards, 1 TD

11. Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars (3-7)

Week 11 Grade: N/A

Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars were on a bye in Week 11 and return in Week 12 for a matchup with the Baltimore Ravens.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 227-348, 2,334 yards, 13 TD, 6 INT; 37 rushes, 178 yards, 3 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 83.1

10. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens (7-3)

Week 11 Stats: 24-33, 209 yards, 0 TD, 1 INT; 11 rushes, 31 yards, 1 TD
Week 11 Grade: B-

Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens should count themselves lucky that they weren’t playing a good team on Sunday. Because against a worthy opponent, they likely get blown out the way the offense was playing as a whole.

Jackson was highly efficient in getting his team a 13-3 win over the Panthers, completing a season-high 72.7% of his passes, but he failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time in nearly a month, and his 31 rushing yards were his lowest since Week 1. But he did get a rushing TD, so that certainly helped out in a sluggish game.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 184-290, 16 TD, 7 INT; 97 rushes, 666 yards, 3 TD
2022 NFL Season Score: 83.8

9. Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers (5-5)

Week 11 Stats: 23-30, 280 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT; 5 rushes, 17 yards
Week 11 Grade: B+

At long last, Justin Herbert had both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams back in the starting lineup for the Chargers’ Sunday night showdown with the Chiefs. And while those two combined for six catches for 109 yards, it was Joshua Palmer who was Herbert’s favorite target.

The two connected eight times for 106 yards and two touchdowns, the second coming with just 1:46 remaining to give LA a 27-23 lead. But Herbert had to sit and watch as the other high-profile quarterback in the game — some guy named Patrick Mahomes — do what he does to lead KC to a comeback win.

Herbert got a final shot to lead a game-winning drive but was sacked and then intercepted to close things out.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 277-416, 2,730 yards, 16 TD, 7 INT; 32 rushes, 90 yards

8. Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers (5-3)

Week 11 Stats: 20-29, 228 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT; 1 rush, 3 yards
Week 11 Grade: A+

Folks, the San Francisco 49ers have quickly become one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL, and Jimmy Garoppolo is a big reason why.

Utilizing every single big weapon around him, Jimmy G matched a career-high with four touchdown passes, two to Brandon Aiyuk and two to George Kittle, as the Niners smoked the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico City, 38-10.

And he also got Deebo Samuel and Christian McCaffrey involved, as those two combined for 14 receptions for 124 yards. Jimmy G continues to play smart football and hasn’t thrown an interception since October 23.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 179-267, 2,159 yards, 15 TD, 4 INT; 19 rushes, 29 yards, 2 TD

7. Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals (6-4)

Week 11 Stats: 24-39, 355 yards, 4 TD, 2 INT; 4 rushes, 5 yards
Week 11 Grade: A-

Back in Week 1, Joe Burrow had a rough go of it against the Pittsburgh Steelers, throwing two touchdowns and four interceptions in a 23-20 Bengals loss.

In Week 11, he flip-flopped, throwing four touchdowns and two interceptions in a 37-30 Cincinnati win. Burrow also took five fewer sacks this time around after taking seven 10 weeks ago.

2022 NFL Season Stats: 257-372, 2,890 yards, 22 TD, 8 INT; 39 rushes, 146 yards, 4 TD

6. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills (7-3)

Week 11 Stats: 18-27, 197 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT; 3 rushes, 7 yards
Week 11 Grade: B

Josh Allen may not have had his strongest performance of the year on Sunday against the Browns, but at least he played better than he has been and did enough to get the Bills a victory.

Following three consecutive two-interception outings, Allen was pick-free against Cleveland and completed two-thirds of his passes for 197 yards with a touchdown. But while that was enough to get the Bills a 31-23 win, it wasn’t quite enough to keep him in our top five as he drops to No. 6 by seventy-six thousandths of a point.

3. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles (9-1)

Week 11 Stats: 18-25, 190 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT; 16 rushes, 86 yards, 1 TD
Week 11 Grade: A

Jalen Hurts summed up his Week 11 performance against the Colts perfectly, saying it’s not how you start but how you finish. And the NFL MVP candidate finished strong to get his Eagles to 9-1 with a dramatic 17-16 comeback win over Indianapolis.

Coming into the fourth quarter trailing by 10, Hurts had led only one scoring drive all afternoon, a 15-play, 54-yard effort in the second that resulted in a field goal. But the MVP candidate took charge in the final frame and accounted for a pair of touchdowns, a 22-yarder through the air, and then a seven-yarder on the ground with 1:20 remaining to lead Philly to victory.

The win marked the first time since 2010 that the Eagles came out on top after trailing by double digits to start the fourth quarter, a span of 44 games.

What the NFL Playoffs Picture Looks Like Heading Into Week 12

Week 11 Stats: 20-34, 329 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT; 4 rushes, 23 yards

The magic of Patrick Mahomes struck again as he maintained his No. 1 spot with yet another A+ performance in the Kansas City Chiefs’ wild comeback win over the LA Chargers.

The current NFL MVP frontrunner certainly wasn’t as accurate as usual, completing just 58.8% of his passes, but he connected on the throws that mattered. He hit Travis Kelce with three touchdown passes, including the game-winner with 31 seconds remaining to give the Chiefs their fourth straight victory.

Kansas City moved to 8-2 with the 30-27 win and is currently the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
