Week 11: Monday Morning Collector

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor

There was a lot of extra football this week with three games going into overtime on Sunday, which led to some inflated statistics.

However, many of the best teams pulled ahead solidifying their spots in the league.

Let’s look at the awards for Week 11.

Veteran of the Week
Matt Schaub, QB, Houston Texas: Schaub was one of the players who wound up in overtime, but he out-threw the rest of the quarterbacks in the league this week by about 170 yards. The veteran completed 43-of-55 passes for 527 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions in a 43-37 win over Jacksonville in over time.

Justin Blackmon, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
: Blackmon had a career-game in just his first year in the league. He took advantage of a high-scoring affair and caught seven passes for 236 yards and a touchdown in a 43—37 loss to Houston in overtime.

Blackmon has been considered a rookie with a lot of upside. Fans got to see just how good he could be on Sunday.
