In rather stunning news, the Carolina Panthers have fired Ron Rivera, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Deshaun Watson only threw for 234 yards against New England -- but against New England, that was good enough to make him our top quarterback of the week. We look at the best and worst defenses across the league and why opponent adjustments have been so dramatic this year.
The top running back in our rankings this week (heading into Monday Night Football) is Carolina's Christian McCaffrey, who ran for 64 yards and a touchdown against the stout New Orleans Saints defense, adding 69 more yards and another touchdown as a receiver.
We start with a high-profile Thursday nighter, as the Colts (6-4) visit the Texans (6-4) in a game with major playoff implications. Key games on Sunday include Seattle (8-2) at Philadelphia (5-5), Carolina (5-5) at New Orleans (8-2), and Green Bay (8-2) at San Francisco (9-1).
Kyle Allen had the worst game for a quarterback we have ever measured on Sunday, but an older game might pass it by the end of the year. We explain, and look at the best passers, runners, and receivers of Week 11.
