PFG VIBE

Welcome to the conclusion of the 11th week of the NFL’s 100th season and the latest collaboration by Julie Voigt and Russell S. Baxter aka PFG VIBE. That’s Voigt’s Insights Baxter’s Expertise and we consistently bring our passion in covering the National Football League.

So here’s our latest work and the latest installment of our newest weekly staple. Both of us have once again made our picks for the top offensive and defensive players each week, as well as the top performance by a team.

Player and Team. PAT…on the Back.

Here are our Week 11 selections.

Offensive Player of the Week:

VI: QB Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

Continuing to show that that he’s been one of the top quarterbacks this season, Prescott threw for 444 yards and three touchdowns in a 35-27 victory over the Detroit Lions. The Cowboys have won three of the last four games and over that stretch, Prescott has thrown 10 TD passes – three scores in each of his last three outings.

BE: QB Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

The second-year signal-caller arguably played the best game of his young career. Allen connected on 21 of his 33 throws for 256 yards and three scores – two to unsung wide receiver John Brown and the other to rookie tight end Dawson Knox. The emerging quarterback also escaped the pocket seven time for 56 yards and another touchdown in Buffalo’s 37-20 win over the Dolphins at South Florida.

Defensive/Special Teams Player of the Week:

VI: CB Kenny Moore Cornerback, Indianapolis Colts

Coming in to the game vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Colts knew what they had to do with Pierre Desir out. Moore needed to step up in a big way and did. He finished with a team-high eight tackles (1 for a loss), one sack and knocked down a pass in a huge divisional win for Indianapolis, 33-13

BE: LB Joe Schobert, Cleveland Browns

A lot of the focus on the team’s 21-7 win over the Steelers had nothing to do with Cleveland’s victory. But this Browns’ defender had quite the game. Schobert finished with 10 tackles, one sack, two interceptions and four passes defensed. Pittsburgh was limited to 236 total yards and Freddie Kitchens’ team won a second straight game for the first time this season.

Team of the Week

VI: Baltimore Ravens

They look like the scariest team in the NFL after defeating the Houston Texans, 41-7. The Ravens defense recorded six sacks and forced two turnovers all while holding the Texans scoreless throughout three and a half quarters. Quarterback Lamar Jackson continues his MVP performance as he threw four touchdowns.

BE: Baltimore Ravens

The league’s hottest team could wind up setting a new NFL record for rushing yards by a team in a season. But the club is coming together on defense as well and on Sunday, stifled Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson and the AFC South leaders. The 8-2 Ravens have won six consecutive contests and are one game behind the 9-1 New England Patriots for the top spot in the AFC.
