The NFL is working its way through Week 11 and we’ve already got some wildness the weekend before Thanksgiving.

The Colts thumped the Bills to open the day and suddenly the Patriots find themselves in first place in the AFC East. It was followed by all sorts of silliness in the 1 p.m. slate. The Texans went into Nashville and actually had little trouble with the Titans. The Vikings welcomed the division-leading Packers to town and stunned them in the closing seconds. The Ravens were playing without Lamar Jackson but managed a last minute win over the Bears. It was quite the early slate!
