week 11 of 2022 NFL Season features a massive slate of games for many teams looking to stay in contention for the NFL playoffs, and things are as close as ever.
After the Defeated Tennessee Titans With the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night, the gap between the Titans and the second-ranked Indianapolis Colts in the AFC South and the Packers’ deficit in the NFC North against the Minnesota Vikings grew a bit larger.
Five of the eight division leaders are separated by at least one game. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are on a bye week, are the only team at the .500 mark and leading the division.

Here are the five best games to watch this weekend.
Bills (6-3) vs. Browns (3-6) – 1 p.m. ET, FOX
the buffalo bills will be looking to get back on track after a demoralizing loss to the Minnesota Vikings last week. Josh Allen will need to make sure to smooth out the bugs to prevent the team from losing control.
the cleveland browns he needs to keep finding ways to win with the return of Deshaun Watson on the horizon. Nick Chubb and company just need a little oomph to pull off a few wins down the stretch, but time is running out.
To make things more interesting, the game was moved from Buffalo to Ford Field when a huge snowstorm hit western New York.
Patriots (5-4) vs. Jets (6-3) – 1 p.m. ET, CBS
The Jets are still head coach from the Jets to the Patriots, Bill Belichick, but this time, the Jets are one game behind the Miami Dolphins for the lead in the AFC East. The Dolphins are on a bye week and New York has the lead against them.
Mac Jones has done enough to keep the Patriots in playoff contention, but it’s been the defense that has clinched the Patriots. New England is sixth in points allowed and 13th in yards allowed. So, here’s a classic rivalry matchup.
Giants (7-2) vs. Lions (3-6), 1 p.m. ET, FOX
The Philadelphia Eagles need one more slip up to encourage an NFC East tie with the New York Giants. New York hosts the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Picking off lowly teams will be key for the Giants, and that skill becomes more valuable by the week. New York has a lot of wins over a lot of bad teams, but leaving those teams out will help them make the playoffs.
Detroit earned an electrifying win over the Bears last week, but this is one of those classic games where a midsize team could easily beat the Giants. Jared Goff just needs to throw some accurate passes and surprise the Giants defense. It feels like one of those games.
NFL POWER RANKINGS: VIKINGS PILL THEIR WAY TO THE TOP AS EAGLES SLIDE TO NO. two
Vikings (8-1) vs. Cowboys (6-3) – 4:25 p.m. ET, CBS
The Vikings found a way to win over the Bills last week. Patrick Peterson’s two interceptions and valiant efforts by Kirk Cousins carried the team to victory. Justin Jefferson is going to give the Cowboys secondary a hard time defending him.
Dallas blew a two-touchdown lead over the Packers to lose in Green Bay, and trying to find his way on the road hasn’t been easy. The Cowboys are 2-2 away from AT&T Stadium. Dak Prescott and the offense need to get back on track to avoid falling out of playoff contention and finding themselves fighting week to week.
Chargers (5-4) vs. Chiefs (7-2) – 8:20 p.m. ET, NBC
On Sunday night, the Los Angeles Chargers will look to rectify their loss to the San Francisco 49ers last weekend. However, doing so against a division rival isn’t going to be easy, especially with the offense hurt.
patrick mahomes and the Chiefs took care of business last week, but being out of JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman will mean Kadarius Toney and Marquez Valdes-Scantling will have to be the anchors. Kansas City can make a statement with a big win over Los Angeles.
