Several games on Sunday stunned the NFL world.
If the 2021 NFL season has taught us anything, it’s that on any given Sunday, any team in the league can win or at least be competitive.
The Week 11 slate added to the growing body of evidence in support of that claim.
Three notable division leaders trailed their respective opponents in the first halves of Sunday’s early games.
By the time the third quarter rolled around, the AFC-leading Tennessee Titans, NFC-leading Green Bay Packers, and Buffalo Bills were all down by double digits.
On Sunday, the Bills got themselves into a hole quickly against the Colts.
Jonathan Taylor, the NFL’s leading rusher, scored three touchdowns in the first half, and Indianapolis took advantage of a huge Buffalo special teams blunder to take a three-score lead at halftime.
The Titans had one of the most surprising first halves of the day, as they faced an AFC South rival.
For much of the first two quarters, the Houston Texans defense held Tennessee at bay, and Tyrod Taylor used a pair of rushing touchdowns to give his team a comfortable lead.
On Sunday afternoon, the Packers were unable to stop a tenacious Vikings squad.
Minnesota is the only team in the league this season that has led in every game, and it demonstrated why with a multi-faceted offensive attack against Green Bay at home.
Even though NFL fans and media have come to expect the unexpected in this league, Sunday’s scoreboard left many puzzled.
Overall, those in the football world found the perplexing results amusing, and hoped that the chaos would continue into the afternoon.
There’s still plenty of time in each of the games mentioned above, but the current scoreboard predicts at least a few surprises.
On Sunday, the NFL world was stunned by several games.
