Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson erupted for a huge Week 11.

The favorites for every major 2012 NFL award will have to fend off some huge performances in Week 11 from players that we haven't been talking about in the prior weeks.

Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson combined to put up some huge numbers in their overtime win against Jacksonville. Schaub passed for 527 yards, which is the No. 2 single-game passing record in NFL history. Johnson caught 14 passes for 273 yards and a touchdown.

Speaking of Jacksonville, Justin Blackmon came up with seven receptions for 236 yards and a touchdown. Chad Henne relieved Blaine Gabbert and threw four touchdown passes.

There were some memorable defensive efforts, such as linebackers Aldon Smith and Von Miller coming up with big sack totals and wreaking havoc all game long.

Week 11 had three overtime games in which the losing teams (Jacksonville, Cleveland and Carolina) all blew double-digit leads. Blowing leads and not finding ways to win in the fourth quarter help explain the abysmal records of all three teams.

Some of our favorites for the major awards coming into Week 11 had solid performances while others took a step back toward the pack.
