There are only 5 rounds left for the end of the first phase of the NFL and the teams are already rushing to do the math to understand how many wins they still need to qualify. Eagles, Chiefs, Vikings, and Ravens are the teams with the most wins in the league, while Texans, Bears, Panthers, and Steelers appear at the bottom of the table.
Round 11 was full of good games and some scary scores, such as the Cowboys’ 40-3 victory over the Vikings, and the Lions’ victory over the Giants, away from home, by 31-18, continuing the good recovery from the Detroit team.
The Eagles beat the Colts, away from home, by 17-16, a few days after the surprising defeat against the Commanders, in round 10. The Washington Commanders themselves beat the Texans by 23-10, and reached 6 victories, but remain in the last NFC East placement.
With a few rounds left for the end of the first phase of the NFL, some teams seem to be well on their way to maintaining first place in their divisions. With 8 wins, the Chiefs lead the AFC WEST, while the Chargers, who are in second place, have only 5 wins.
In the NFC North, the Vikings have already won 8 games, but Lions (2nd) and Packers (3rd) have only 4 wins so far. The Titans are also calm in first place with 7 wins, followed by the Colts, who won only 4 games.
Let’s learn more about the main clashes of this last round, starting with the opening game of the round, which usually takes place on Thursdays.
