NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 11 Schedule and More
November 10, 2014
Yesterday gave us a great day of football, and we’ve got more action on tap for tonight. Before we get set for this week’s edition of “Monday Night Football,” let’s take a closer look at some of the notable players and storylines from around the league. Here’s the latest.
SNF Wrap-Up: You’ll be hearing about Aaron Rodgers’ epic performance against the Bears for a long time to come. The Packers QB tossed a record-tying six touchdowns in the first half alone last night, helping his team cruise to a 55-14 victory that was about as easy as they get in the NFL.
Jordy Nelson was Rodgers’ main beneficiary, as he posted 152 yards and two touchdowns on a half-dozen grabs. Randall Cobb, Eddie Lacy, Andrew Quarless and Brian Bostick also scored for the Pack.

There was a lot going on in the Cardinals’ Week 10 win over the Rams. The team was down relatively late in the game, but was able to come back on the strength of backup QB Drew Stanton’s 85 yards and a touchdown in relief.
Arizona QB Carson Palmer went down with a knee injury during the fourth quarter, and the fear is that he tore his ACL. We’ll find out more information on him this week.
Even though the Giants lost big to the Seahawks yesterday 38-17, the team can look to the future with a little hope thanks to rookie Odell Beckham. He finished with seven grabs yesterday for 108 yards, which is his third big week in a row. He’s filling in nicely at the No. 1 receiver spot with Victor Cruz gone.
With the way Peyton Manning has been playing, it’s not hard for the Denver running backs to find room on the ground. During the 41-17 win over the Raiders, C.J. Anderson was the star, rushing for 90 yards on 13 carries. He also had 73 yards and a score on four catches as well.
With Montee Ball likely returning in Week 11, it’ll be hard to tell which Broncos back will get the big workload, but that’s good for Denver fans. With at least three capable backs behind Manning, opposing defenses will have fits trying to game plan.
Week 11 NFL Schedule: It’s time to start looking forward to Week 11 in the NFL. Here’s a look at the complete schedule, along with the start times and TV networks you can catch the games on.
