NFL Week 11 Open Discussion Thread

Thanks to the Pittsburgh Steelers being on a mini bye this weekend we all can sit back and enjoy several of the key games that will take place on this Week 11 Sunday. We’ve already highlighted several games that fans of the Steelers will likely want to keep an eye on Sunday and that list is of course headlined by the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars all playing on the road.

Oh, the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals are both on the road on Sunday as well but barring anything strange happening in the next several weeks, neither are a real threat to the Steelers right now outside of both still having to play Pittsburgh. In short, the Steelers can handle their business with both in their remaining six games.

When these key games get underway, I will update this post with highlights and injury updates as they progress. In the meantime, please feel free to use this post as an open discussion thread to talk about everything and anything.

Have a great Sunday!

  • SteelersDepot

    Cockrell injured first play

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Ugly red zone interception for Huntley on opening drive. Hopefully a sign of things to come.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Man, that is one empty stadium in Cleveland.

  • SteelersDepot

    Hundley 2 INTs already

  • DirtDawg1964

    Three GB drives. Three turnovers. Fortunately the Ravens still stink on offence.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Three turnovers for the Ravens created three points. They really are terrible.

  • DirtDawg1964

    Ravens were in GB territory five times. Six points. My lord they are laughably bad.

  • Seele VonDoogenstein

    I hope KC, NE, and Jacksonville all lose today!

  • WilliamSekinger

    Chiefs are going to lose to the Giants!

  • WilliamSekinger

    Browns gave Jacksonville all they could handle, but at the end of the day they are the Browns. They need a TD in the last 3 minutes to wim.

  • Jason

    Most overrated coach ever with the possible exception of Jeff Fisher. All that talent on offense and can’t score vs NYG

  • WilliamSekinger

    Just goes to show that other teams besides the Steelers lay eggs against inferior teams.

  • DirtDawg1964

    9-6 Giants. But lots of time left. Minute 38.

  • ryan72384

    Look at some of these games today. It just goes to show this is the NFL and anything can happen. We aren’t the only good team to lay eggs against “bad” teams. It happens. These players are all human. Sometimes they get hyped for a game and play good and sometimes they don’t. Some coaches come up with a masterful gameplan to beat a better team. I’m sure Saints fans are livid right now. KC fans are probably saying how can we not be destroying the 1 win Giants?!

  • WilliamSekinger

    That just sickens me. Giants had that game, KC just tied it with 1 second left after doing nothing all game.

  • WilliamSekinger

    KC looses, all is right with the world. KC did nothing to deserve to win that game.

  • WB Tarleton

    Wow. Chiefs lose to Giants. Pretty much eliminates KC as a seeding threat to us. (2 games and the tiebreaker)

    Any given Sunday.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    The biggest issue with us vs the pats is going to be dropped balls and missed tackles I’ve noticed the pats receivers barely drop passes

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    Patriots have all the luck when it comes to turnovers

  • DoctorNoah

    Jax ain’t gonna lose to CLE. And Pats ain’t gonna lose to Raiders. If we are expecting help from anyone down the stretch, ain’t gonna happen.

  • Jason

    Yet with a Buffalo loss today the Ravens will be the 6 seed.

  • WilliamSekinger

    So officials at a Steelers game are like forward progress stopped, not a turnover, Steelers do not get the ball. Same play except the receiver is held up much longer than the Steelers game and the officials are like forward progress was not stopped, definitely a turnover, Patriots ball!

  • WilliamSekinger

    You really went out on a limb with that Jax/Cle prediction considering the game was over before you posted 🙂

  • Nathanael Dory

    Major mistake by the bills for the QB switch and now they are paying the price

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Saints fans are pretty pumped actually haha

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I maintain, the Redskins are gonna regret not paying Cousins. He’s gonna be good for another team next year, and they’re not gonna have a QB as good as him for at least 2-5 years.

  • Mister Wirez

    Going for draft picks at this point.

  • Applebite

    My bold prediction for the year: The Packer’s true future is currently sitting on their PS. They’re not going to be able to ignore his talent. And for right now, they’ll be fools to let him remain where he is right now.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    We got no help today. Bungles won. Pats won. Jax won. Ratbirds won.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    For us. After Ben retires this year.

  • WB Tarleton

    They were in a playoff spot before that loss. The Ravens now have the sixth seed, but the Bills are tied at 5-5. You do not go for picks in that situation. I’m afraid it was just a monumentally dumb coaching decision.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    Fisher isn’t overrated. Fisher is awful and everyone knows it. Andy Reid is a good coach.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Chiefs lost.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    Chiefs are irrelevant at this point.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I’d be happy if we got him – but, I think he’s gonna get 30 million on the open market, if not more.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Well, yeah, because they lost. If they’d won they’d still only be a game behind (although we have the tie breaker).

  • Brady missed open guys more than a few times today.

  • They aren’t really irrelevant. They are still in a great spot to win their division and have a home playoff game.

  • It happens all over the league every week. But no body pays attention to it. I have been saying “on any given Sunday” since this “Tomlin looses to inferior teams” narrative has been around. No body cares unless it happens within their Steelers bubble…

  • Jason

    Everyone knows it? Lol. Yet he managed to remain a head coach for 22 yrs.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    Did you see how he started out I think he went 11/11 and after that I didn’t watch

  • Michael Mosgrove

    And hes sucked on every team.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    He was 30-37 339yrds 3tds

  • Sure the stats look great, but should also know they don’t tell the hole story. I you watched that game, you would have seen him miss guys on screen passes, in the flats, crossing routes. Some of the time, pressure forced a bad ball, but there were at least 3 or 4 times he just flat out missed an open guys.

    Bottom line, the Pat’s are vulnerable. They can be beaten.
