Results from week 11 of the National Football League: Brock Purdy is perfect for the 49ers, and the Lions and Browns win again
For the first time since 1969, both the Lions and the Browns have won at least seven of their first ten games. As a result, the fans of these two teams, who have endured a great deal of disappointment in recent years, have true reason for optimism this season.
Josh Allen ignited into life for the Buffalo Bills as they defeated the New York Jets 32-6 to keep their dreams of making the playoffs alive. The New York Jets continue to struggle without Aaron Rodgers due to an injury he sustained earlier this season.
Although he once again threw and ran for a touchdown, Josh Dobbs was unable to continue his spectacular season as his Minnesota Vikings were defeated by the Denver Broncos in a thrilling game with a score of 21-20. This loss brought an end to the Vikings’ five-game winning streak.

Both the Lions and the Browns are having outstanding seasons.
The Lions and Browns are two of only four teams that have never appeared in the Super Bowl, and they are the only two to have seasons in which they did not win a single game and finished with a record of 0-16. However, the typical feeling of sadness among their fans is turning into hope as both teams have continued to have outstanding seasons.
The Detroit Lions, led by head coach Dan Campbell, proved once again that they are the real deal by coming back from a 12-point hole in the final three minutes of their game against the Chicago Bears and winning 31-26. This victory came after the team had experienced multiple false dawns over the years.
“We got a chance to do something special,” remarked Campbell after Detroit overcame four turnovers to move to 8-2 for the first time since 1962. This marked the first time that Detroit had reached this mark since the 1960s.
