NFL Week 11

With the F1 circus rolling into town, the first round of this weekend’s fixtures will have the USGP competing for our attention – the Green Bay Packers play the Detroit Lions (1800 – Sky Sports). The must-watch (if F1 permits) game of the week is the Indianapolis Colts facing the New England Patriots (2125 – Sky Sports). The last 2 games should come under the heading of QB-Injury-Report: Ben Roethlisberger (out), as the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens (0120 Mon am – C4); Big-Ben has a dislocated rib, and his replacement (Byron Leftwich) will be in for a fight against a toughening Ravens team. Then on Monday, with Jay Cutler (out) & Alex Smith (out), the Chicago Bears take on the San Francisco 49ers (0130 Tues am – BBC; now with added studio!!). These two high-flying NFC teams will be without their starting QBs, so expect a tough, ground-and-pound game, in the ‘battle of the back-ups’ – Campbell vs Kaepernick.
