Takeaways From Week Eleven of the NFL Season

Another colossal match-up in the Show-Me State ended with Mahomes on top, while an offensive coordinator was given the pink slip. What went down in the eleventh week of the NFL season?

  • How 'Bout Dem Chiefs? The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Dallas Cowboys, 19-9, on Sunday. The win established the reigning AFC Champions as a frontrunner in the conference. However, it wasn't because of Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, or Tyreek Hill. It was Chris Jones who was a living nightmare for Dak Prescott, piling up 3.5 sacks and five total sacks. As for Dallas, it raised some concerns about their offense. They didn't get anything going, with Prescott facing a ton of pressure. How will the Cowboys respond if they're not clicking on all cylinders?

  • Giant Mistake: Daniel Jones had a forgettable night on Monday against the Buccaneers, throwing two interceptions in a 30-10 loss. That triggered offensive coordinator Jason Garrett's firing *CLAPCLAPCLAP*, leaving the Giants to go in a new direction. But that raises more questions about Dave Gettleman in the front office. His failure to construct a winning offense has drawn the ire of many Giant fans. Keep an eye on Gettleman as his seat also gets warm.

  • A Familiar Face in First Place... Don't look now, but the New England Patriots are in first place in the AFC East. With Buffalo facing all sorts of problems offensively and Miami and the Jets looking like a mess, that had left the door open for the Pats to strike back. Bill Belichick's squad had a resounding 25-0 victory on Thursday night, forcing four interceptions that included a pick-six. Tom Brady might be long gone in Foxboro. However, it seems like the Pats and their tough secondary are in good hands thanks to the Hall of Fame head coach.
