WEEK 11 Football Review

Here's week 11 of the NFL
Dallas ended the last unbeaten record in the NFL this season by beating Indianapolis 21-14 on Sunday.

Marion Barber scored twice in the final period and quarterback Tony Romo was just about perfect in the second half as the Cowboys came from behind to win.

They move to 6-4 on the season and keep their playoff hopes very much alive while the Colts fall to 9-1.

Chicago continued their march towards the playoffs by shutting out the New York Jets 10-0 at the Meadowlands.

Chad Pennington and the Jets were able to move the ball against Chicago's vaunted defense.

But they were unable to get the points their yardage merited and it was the Bears who made the plays to move to 9-1 on the season.

A Robbie Gould field goal in the third quarter opened the scoring after the first half ended 0-0.

And then Rex Grossman hit Mark Bradley with a 57-yard touchdown pass to clinch victory.

New England bounced back to winning ways with a crushing 35-0 win over Green Bay.

Tom Brady threw for 244 yards and four touchdowns in a superb display, while opposite number Brett Favre left early with an elbow injury.

Baltimore continued their fine season by beating Atlanta 24-10 to move to 8-2.

Jamal Lewis rushed for 91 yards and three touchdowns as the Ravens recovered from an early deficit to severely damage Atlanta's playoff hopes.

Philadelphia lost Donovan McNabb for the season with a torn cruciate ligament as their playoff hopes took a huge nosedive in a 31-13 defeat by Tennessee.

Travis Henry rushed for 143 yards - including a 70-yard score - as the Titans caused an upset.

San Francisco (5-5) are surprise contenders for the NFC West title after beating Seattle (6-4) 20-14.

Frank Gore powered his way to 212 yards rushing on just 24 carries to lead the 49ers to a famous victory.

Carolina (now 6-4) kept their post-season hopes alive by shutting out St Louis 15-0.

DeAngelo Williams rushed for 114 yards on 20 carries as the Panthers controlled proceedings and Jake Delhomme hit Steve Smith with a 62-yard scoring pass.

Cincinnati bounced back from that heartbreaking defeat by the Chargers last weekend to notch a surprise victory 31-16 in New Orleans.

Carson Palmer threw for 275 yards and three scores - all to the unstoppable Chad Johnson (six catches for 190 yards).

Cincy improves to 5-5 with the win while the Saints fall to 6-4.

Larry Johnson rumbled for 154 yards and two scores as Kansas City beat hapless Oakland 17-13 to improve to 6-4.

And Miami's defense produced two touchdowns as the Dolphins continued their recent renaissance by beating Minnesota 24-20.

Renaldo Hill returned a fumble 48 yards for a score while Jason Taylor brought back an interception 51 yards.

Super Bowl champions Pittsburgh needed two scores in the dying minutes to beat Cleveland 24-20.

Willie Parker obliged for both, the second a four-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger with just 32 seconds remaining.

Lee Evans caught 11 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns as Buffalo beat Houston 24-21.

Both of his scores were 83-yarders from JP Losman and both came in the opening quarter.

But it took a 15-yarder from Losman to Peerless Price in the final two minutes to clinch victory after the Bills had fallen behind.

Jason Campbell threw two TDs in his first start for Washington but it wasn't enough to avoid a 20-17 loss to Tampa Bay.

Matt Leinart got his first victory as a pro when Arizona beat Detroit 17-10. He threw for 233 yards and a score.
