The Week 11 of the NFL was a week ridden of injuries. For your fantasy league we take a look at key injuries key performances of various teams and predictions for coming games. There were many stars who went down to injuries.
Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens endured a season ending knee injury after receiving a left tackle from James Hurst. Flacco had been enjoying the fifth longest streak in NFL history after starting in 122 straight games. Elsewhere Darelle Revis of the New York Jets sustained a head injury after trying to tackle Texans RB Akeem Hunt. The Redskins have been enduring a terrible run in the season being 30 points down midway through the fourth quarter, the injury to Trent Williams was a big blow to them. He suffered a knee injury and was carted off to the locker room. Coach Jay Gruden said after the game that he was unsure of the recovery time for the injury.
The game of Football however was however not without its ups and downs in the league with new comers like Osweiler making an impressive start to his career. The 25 year old was errorless for the Patriots, his passing performance and tackling was way above the normal Manning. The injury to Manning seems to be a blessing in disguise for Coach Ronnie Hillmans as Osweiler seems to be taking the role pretty well.
Elsewhere, the Bears seemed to be having a good game but the lost chances cost them points. Jay Cutler, the Chicago quarter back threw an interception and lost a fumble. They could have gained a lot of points from a Denver team that looked so extremely vulnerable. Green Bay had an easy day with a 30-13 win. They seemed to have regained some key elements to their game play. Eddie Lacy made a comeback with a 100 yard gain on 22 carries. James Jones also played well catching six passes for 109 yards and a superb touchdown grab.
Despite the Vikings 7 – 3 they are not a disappointment. There is still a huge probability that they might make to the playoffs for the first time in three years.
