1. Three Top Five teams all upset– The month of November in college football is always one where you need to expect the unexpected. Michigan, Clemson, and Washington all came into the week 11 with a zero in that loss column and the day after, they all were upset. Clemson’s problems all caught up with them finally as they were upset by an unranked Pittsburgh team at home of all places where they’ve really been dominant. Washington lost by 11 to USC on their home turf and Michigan was upset by a point at the hands of Iowa and they took Iowa too lightly. Coming into the day, I said this was a trap game for Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines. Tuesday night will be fairly interesting.
2. Seattle snaps New England’s winning streak– When they met in 2015, it was a pretty big game, to say the least. A Super Bowl was on the line and how could we forget the infamous blunder at the goal line and Malcolm Butler making the play of his life. This would be their first time meeting since then and to some, this was a potential Super Bowl 51 preview. I really liked the way Seattle looked last night. They were able to establish some type of running game, Russell Wilson finally looked healthy and the defense punched the Patriots offensive front in the mouth and hit Tom Brady. Just like that Super Bowl, it all came down to a play at the goal line and Seattle this time prevailed. This is a huge win for the Seahawks.
3. Cowboys win a thriller in Pittsburgh– The Cowboys have won seven straight games and were looking to keep up their winning ways. The Steelers started the season on a tear then injuries piled in and the losses came with it. This would be the toughest team Dallas had faced probably since the Packers a few weeks back. Ben pulled a Dan Marino where he fake knelt and threw a touchdown pass to Antonio Brown. Game over, right? Nope. Dak Prescott showed the poise of a five-year veteran on that drive. Dallas would score on a run by Ezekiel Elliott to seal the deal and give them their eighth straight win. They are now holders of the best record in the NFL at 8-1.
4. Titans destroy Green Bay– The Packers are struggling and might I add they are struggling badly right now. Could they potentially stop the bleeding in Tennessee against an up and coming Titans team? Well, they didn’t. The Titans got off to a fast start and never looked back. The Packers just couldn’t get anything going and they dropped their third straight game to put them at 4-5 right now. This is a big time win for Tennessee.
5. Chiefs erase a 14-point lead– When I was discussing Carolina to some people, I remember stating all they needed was one win to get themselves back into the swing of things. They came into this one on a two-game winning streak and started quickly against the Chiefs. Then came the fourth quarter and late into the game, the Panthers turned the ball over and that gave Kansas City new life. They moved the ball down the field and kicked the GW field goal to come back from 14 points down for the victory and now they’re in first place in the AFC West.
