NFL Scores Week 11: Results and Top Fantasy Star for Every Sunday Game

Division battles were aplenty in Week 11. Teams jockeyed for position on Sunday, as playoff positioning is the primary goal as the season heads into its last quarter. The Philadelphia Eagles were the biggest winners of the early games. 

Led by Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy, the Eagles defeated the Washington Redskins 24-16 to ensure sole possession of first place in the NFC East. The Dallas Cowboys are idle, so the Eagles lead their division rivals by half a game.

The Buffalo Bills also made a statement in a division game. In a battle of New York, the Bills spanked the New York Jets 37-14.

E.J. Manuel had a great game, completing 20 of 28 passes and tossing two touchdown passes. The Bills improved their record to 4-7 and knocked the Jets down to 5-5. Geno Smith had a horrendous day. The rookie quarterback was picked off three times.

Here's a look at all of the scores from Sunday's action.

Philly Dunks the Skins

The Redskins' playoff chances took a major blow on Sunday. Mike Shanahan's team fell to 3-7 on the season, and with an 0-3 record in the division, the Skins will need a miracle to make the postseason.

Peculiar play-calling didn't help them in Week 11. Despite being down most of the game, Robert Griffin III had the handcuffs on through three quarters. He had only 14 pass attempts heading into the final quarter.

Griffin III got his team on the board with a 62-yard touchdown pass to Darrel Young with 13:08 left in the game. He hit Aldrick Robinson on a 41-yard scoring strike later in the quarter, but the offense opened up too late. This loss will stick in the craw of Redskins fans. One has to wonder what would have happened if RG3 had been given the freedom to throw the ball more often in the first half.

To add insult to injury, Washington also lost tight end Jordan Reed to a concussion.

Things couldn't be looking much worse for the Redskins.

Bobby Rainey Will Be a Major Commodity on the Waiver Wire

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' diminutive running back more than doubled his rushing total on the season in one game. He lit up the Atlanta Falcons' run defense for 163 yards and two scores. Coming into the game, he had only 79 yards and one score. 

Physically, he's built similar to Tampa Bay's normal starter Doug Martin. At 5'8", 212 pounds, Rainey is a short, stocky and shifty back who simply shredded Atlanta on Sunday during the Bucs' 41-28 win.

With Martin headed to injured reserve after surgery on his torn labrum, Rainey is going to look great to fantasy owners on Monday morning.
