This thread is for discussion of action on the field before, during, and after Week 11 of the 2006 NFL season. You can talk about who you think will win or lose before the games start and last-minute news on Sunday morning. Then during the games, discuss strange plays, great performances, and stupid announcers (of which there are plenty). After the day is done, we'll discuss the results of the week Sunday night and Monday before our weekly commentary articles appear.
A separate thread will go up Sunday night for discussion during the Sunday and Monday night games.
Please ask your fantasy football start/bench and waiver wire questions in the discussion thread for Scramble for the Ball.
Is Detroit's defense good enough to make it a legitimate NFC contender? It sure looked that way when the Lions came down to New Orleans and held Drew Brees to 13 points.
