Week 11 winners and losers | National Football Post
Let’s check out my winners and loser from the Week 11 NFL action. Five that stood out and five that disappointed…

Just another Patriots-Colts classic - Don Banks -
It's more compliment than complaint, but here's the problem I've got with these annual Colts-Patriots showdowns, the ones the NFL use as the centerpiece of its entire 256-game regular-season schedule every November: They only serve to make us realize what we're missing the rest of the year.

Young's meltdown, more Snap Judgments - Don Banks -
Vince Young is toast in Tennessee. That has to be it for the Titans' 2006 first-round pick, doesn't it? There's really no way back for the Young era in Nashville after Sunday's career-worst meltdown in the wake of the Titans' damaging 19-16 overtime loss to Washington.

Bills vs. Bengals - Recap - November 21, 2010 - NFL - Football -
Down 31-14 at halftime, the one-win Buffalo Bills got angry.

First and 10: Jets' miracle, more analysis - Andrew Perloff -
Once again we're left asking are the Jets lucky or good. Now that they've pulled out three dramatic wins in a row and improved to 8-2, you have to argue they're pretty good. Quarterback Mark Sanchez showed he can handle the moment with another dramatic game-winning drive, which was capped by a long bomb to Braylon Edwards and a short TD pass to Santonio Holmes with only :10 remaining. Darrelle Revis also showed why his holdout was such a big deal, helping limit Houston's Andre Johnson to four catches for 32 yards. The Texans made an admirable comeback effort, with 20 fourth-quarter points, but they have to be the worst finishers in the NFL.

Remembering former Denver Broncos' receiver Kenny McKinley - The Bonus -
The booming bass bounced off the walls in the Broncos' locker room as the rap song "Chirpin" played in the background. Before one practice in October, Denver receivers traded quips like short routes. It was as if Kenny McKinley was right there with them, cracking jokes and a smile so wide, as one teammate said, "You could see every tooth in his mouth."

Seahawks vs. Saints - Recap - November 21, 2010 - NFL - Football -
Drew Brees has made plenty of good defenses look bad during his steady accumulation of New Orleans Saints passing records.

Colts' Peyton Manning has plenty on his shoulders - Dan Shaughnessy -
This time, he could not beat Bill Belichick and the Patriots. This time, he could not finish the furious comeback. This time, he threw a killer interception in the closing seconds when his team was already in position to tie the game with a field goal.

Titans' Young goes out with a temper tantrum - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
You got the feeling that Titans coach Jeff Fisher never believed in Young as his quarterback, that all the talk about team owner Bud Adams taking Young in the NFL draft and sticking it to the city of Houston one last time were right on the money. It seemed as if Fisher was stuck with Young.

Jags' little big man deserves bigger spotlight - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
"If this was New York, he’d be a huge star," Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said of his running back Maurice Jones-Drew(notes).

Pats' D rewards Belichick this time around - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

The legend of Brett Favre is dead - Shutdown Corner - NFL  - Yahoo! Sports
Sunday's Vikings-Packers game will probably not be the last NFL game Brett Favre(notes) plays. It should be, though, because at this point, Favre can't do anything for the Vikings other than continue to pilot their dizzying plunge into a foul pit of football sewage.
