Best Crimson Tide Performances from NFL Week 11
Week eleven saw another crop of incredible performances from some of the Crimson Tide's best.
Jalen Hurts has his Eagles playing their best football of the season, and Mac Jones has turned the Patriots into a juggernaut of the AFC East once again. All around the league, the Crimson Tide is making it's impact in a big way.
Here are your best Crimson Tide performances from NFL week eleven.
Jalen Hurts, QB Philadelphia Eagles
Jalen Hurts and the Eagles are playing their best football of the season. The second-year quarterback has led his team to three wins in their last four games, all while looking as comfortable as ever under center. Hurts finished the win over the Saints just 13/24 for 147 yards but was extremely effective on the ground, adding 18 carries for 69 yards and three scores. Since allowing Hurts to play his style of quarterback, the Eagles have looked like a brand new team and are surging for a playoff spot just at the right time.
Daron Payne, DT Washington Football Team
The Washington Football Team have now picked up two big time wins in back-to-back weeks, and Daron Payne has been a huge reason for it. The Birmingham, AL native is a force to be reckoned with in the trenches, constantly clogging up running lanes and providing pressure on passes. In the Football Team's week eleven matchup with Carolina, it was no different. Payne finished with just four tackles, but helped hold Christian McCaffrey to just 59 rushing yards while also sealing the victory for his team with a sack on Cam Newton on the Panthers' final drive.
Mac Jones, QB New England Patriots
Say what you want about Mac Jones, but the guy can flat out play and has his team looking the best they have since a certain quarterback took his talents to Tampa Bay. The Patriots, now winners of five straight, took down the woeful Falcons on Sunday 25-0. Jones, while his defense did a lot of the heavy lifting, continued to play well, finishing 22-of-26 for 207 yards with a touchdown and an interception. New England looks destined for a playoff spot, and Jones looks to be the favorite to win offensive rookie of the year.
Tua Tagovailoa, QB Miami Dolphins
Tua Tagovailoa seems to improve with each passing week, and this week was no different. In a victory over the Jets, the second-year quarterback got off to a solid start, leading his team to and early 7-0 lead, but quickly was unable to find any rhythm and entered the second half in a tight game. Stop me if you've heard this before, but Tagovailoa played lights out in the final half, throwing for 133 yards and two touchdowns while completing 90% of his passes. Overall, despite one interception, Tagovailoa played well, finishing the game 27-of-33 for 273 yards and two touchdowns.
