Like we did last week, and every week before that, here are the five best and worst plays from Week 11 of the 2011 NFL season. We'll start with....
|No. 5: Rob Gronkowski Is Awesome|
That was one of his two touchdowns in Monday night's game and is one of the reasons that he might be the top tight end in the league right now.
|No. 4: Dolphins Embarrass The Bills|
The Dolphins were beating the Bills by a score of 28-6 early in the third quarter of the teams' Week 11 divisional matchup. The Bills offense couldn't get anything going (again) and they were forced to punt but the Dolphins decided to keep the offense off the field and go ahead and take it right in for the score.
What happened to the Bills?
|No. 3: Green Bay Punter Sets Up Team's First Score|
The Green Bay Packers' high-powered offense went three-and-out on their first possession of their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Apparently, this didn't make punter Tim Masthay happy. What also doesn't make Tim Masthay happy is when he is about to kick the ball, he sees a player from the opposing team about two feet away from him.
Masthay dodged the would-be kick blocker and managed to run for a first down, fumbling twice along the way. The Packers offense came back out on the field and scored their first touchdown of the game.
|No. 4: Everybody Loves A Fat Guy TD|
Speaking of the Packers and their first touchdown of the game, here's how they did it.
This isn't Raji's first trip to the end zone. Some of you may remember this touchdown and the dance that made half of America fall in love with him.
|No. 1: Ron Winter Is Tougher Than You|
During one play in the Bengals-Ravens game players from both teams were piled up trying to fight for a fumbled ball, and referee Ron Winter was in the wrong place at the wrong time -- at the bottom of the pile.
Winter emerged from the pile of massive men unscathed.
And the Worst.
|No. 5: Torrey Smith Needs a Haircut|
The Ravens were driving on the Bengals late in the second quarter with a seven-point lead and Joe Flacco dropped back to passing finding rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith across the middle. Smith caught the pass and saw nothing ahead of him but green grass.
Unfortunately, he didn't make it..... because of his hair.
|No. 4: Tyler Palko's 49.9|
Even though it doesn't seem like it, Tyler Palko's matchup against the Patriots was a favorable one. The Patriots' secondary has been torched by teams whose offenses barely had a pulse heading into their games and the Patriots offense was likely to score so much to cause Palko and the Chiefs to throw the ball to keep up.
Even though that was the case, Palko didn't registrer a single touchdown pass. He did, however, throw three interceptions to give him a passer rating of 49.9 in his first NFL start.
|No. 3: Kellen Winslow Can't Jump|
The Buccaneers were looking to hand the Packers their first loss of the season and and TE Kellen Winslow wanted to be a part of it. He caught a pass, running up the field and, the way he saw it, linebacker Desmond Bishop was the only thing standing in his way. He couldn't go left because he'd step out of bounds and he couldn't go right because more Packers players were on their way. He probably couldn't go under him because, well, that just doesn't really work in the NFL. The only option was to go over him (Bishop stands at 6-2).
Winslow jumped and.......
He also dropped an easy two-point conversion pass in the game too that would have tied the two teams at 21.
|No. 2: The Bills And Jets|
I don't want to take anything away from the Broncos and Dolphins, but neither of these teams should have won their games in Week 11. If the Jets want to be taken seriously, they need to go to Denver and muster more than a pathetic 13 points. They can't be counted out of the AFC playoff picture quite yet, but they should be based on that performance. The Bills, who were once one of the more exciting teams to watch this season, are in the middle of a nose dive. They won four out of their first five and suddenly they can't move the ball on offense. They've now lost four out of their last five games.
These two teams could have made the AFC East more exciting but now they're just dragging it down.
|No. 1: Chris Johnson|
Chris Johnson carried the ball 12 times against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday and those 12 carries went for....13 yards. That's 1.1 yards per carry. BJ Raji could carry the ball for more than 1.1 yards on 12 carries.
