NFL Quick Hits: Week Eleven
Offensive Player of the Week: Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens
Runners Up: Dak Prescott (444 passing yards, three touchdowns vs. Lions), Jimmy Garaoppolo (424 passing yards, four touchdowns, two picks, led game-winning drive vs. Cardinals), Kirk Cousins (319 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, 133.2 passer rating, helped Vikings overcome 20-point halftime deficit vs. Broncos), Christian McCaffrey (70 rushing yards, 121 receiving yards vs. Atlanta), Gus Edwards (Eight carries for 112 rushing yards and a touchdown vs. Texans), Michael Gallup (148 receiving yards vs. Lions), Calvin Ridley (143 receiving yards and a touchdown vs. Panthers), John Brown (137 receiving yards and two touchdowns vs. Dolphins), DJ Chark (104 receiving yards, two touchdowns vs Colts)
Defensive Player of the Week: Joe Schobert, LB, Cleveland Browns
Rookie of the Week: Kyler Murray, QB, Arizona Cardinals
For a team that has just come off a season that earned them the number one overall pick in the draft, the Cardinals are definitely on the right track.
Seriously, watch a Cardinals game if you have the chance. They are exciting to watch. On top of that, if you take a look at their losses, there isn't really a game where they were absolutely blown out.
A lot of this starts with Kyler Murray, who went 24/33 for 150 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, 67 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown against the 49ers, which has arguably the best defense in the league.
The fact that they've had the 49ers on the ropes, not once, but twice this season says a lot about where this Cardinals team is at in the rebuild.
Runners Up: Deebo Samuel (134 receiving yards vs. 49ers), Josh Jacobs (112 rushing yards vs. Bengals), Dewayne Haskins (214 passing yards, two touchdowns vs. Jets), Devin Singletary (75 rushing yards vs. Dolphins), Rock Ya-Sin (Six tackles, interception vs. Jaguars),
Best Uni Matchup of the Week: Cincinnati Bengals vs. Oakland Raiders
Don't get used to seeing the Bengals here.
I've been vocal in the past about how bad their uniforms are, and they still need a redesign in the worst way.
However, the Raiders are really the only team the tiger-striped uniforms can be paired with, and make it look good.
It feels almost blasphemous putting the Bengals in a "best uniforms" category, but it looked great this week.
Runners Up: Patriots vs. Eagles, Chiefs vs. Chargers
Most Barfy Uni Matchup of the Week: New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This one is a little harsh, because there weren't any real egregiously bad matchups this week, but there's got to be one.
The Saints were fine. The white unis with white pants is easily their best look.
The problem is the Bucs alternates. It's a mono-red monstrosity, and you can barely read the numbers, which is just as well because the digital clock-like looking numbers are gross.
Runners Up: Steelers vs. Browns
