2012 - week 11 - results

UPSETS in the making....

CLE @DAL, - a tale of two halves, CLE dominates w/RUN O and PASS D in 1st half, DAL changes gear in 2nd half going to short game, 'til they get the lead in Q4. CLE fails to score on 4th & Goal and DAL w/ball chooses to run ball thrice seemingly middle of the line plays and is stonewalled by CLE RUN D, with ensuing DAL punt you could guess that CLE will score as DAL shanks punt and ST penalty places CLE within red zone. CLE scores TD, DAL trys to score TD with DAL just has too much conservative play calling and it really shows in the last 3 min or so
Another odd thing was the play clock was inoperable around Q4 10:35 left in the game
Game goes to OT and DAL wins w/a FG

JAC @HOU, - JAC subs QB Henne in Q1 (Gabbert inj) and what a spark, JAC grabs lead and HOU has to continually comeback and tie game. Game goes to OT, both teams score a FG, HOU holds off JAC w/TD

TB @CAR, CAR D scores a TD via interception return, and seemingly controls the game into Q4, TB scores TD w/
ARI @ATL, - ATL QB Ryan throws 5 ints & 0 TDs, ARI benches QB Skelton for rookie QB Lindley (curious move - if you're not seeing your starter in a favorable light, why not give the rookie all the snaps during your bye week and let him start?). ATL scores in Q4 to break tie and get win. ATL lucky, very fortunate

NYJ @STL, - NYJ getting the upset and overcoming the season's turmoil for a win on the road.

Games with large point movements - results

WAS dominates
TB proves grit with late Q4 TD to tie and OT TD to win
NYJ has awakened? with road upset @STL
CIN allows the early KC score and dominates the rest of the way
BAL gets the win, withstanding early PIT TD who sputters after that... (BAL did not cover 3.5pt spread)

Favorites 4-1 SU  3-2 ATS
