The Game

In one of the NFL’s biggest Week 11 games, the Kansas City Chiefs play the Dallas Cowboys at Arrowhead Stadium. The kickoff is scheduled for 3:25 p.m. Arrowhead Time. The game will be broadcast on Fox — locally on WDAF/4.

Both teams are leading their respective divisions. Going into the game, the Cowboys possess a 7-2 record that holds a commanding lead in the NFC East. At 6-4, the Chiefs lead the AFC West by half a game over the Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders — but are only one game ahead of the last-place Denver Broncos. Dallas would hold the NFC’s third postseason seed if the season ended today, while the Chiefs would be seeded fourth in the AFC.

The Cowboys need a win to stay competitive with the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals for the NFC’s No. 1 seed, while the Chiefs — with little remaining chance to earn a fourth-straight postseason bye — need a win to maintain their AFC West lead, hoping to salvage a home game in the Wild Card round. Both teams enter the game on the heels of blowout victories. The Cowboys earned a 43-3 victory over the Atlanta Falcons, while the Chiefs notched a 41-14 win over the Raiders to take the division lead.

After an unprecedented five-game slump with a passer rating below the league average, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes turned in a stellar performance against the Raiders, completing 35 of 50 passes for 406 yards and five touchdowns to be named the AFC’s offensive player of the week. He’ll face a Cowboys defense that has allowed the league’s fourth-lowest passer rating this season — mainly on the strength of its 14 interceptions.

Meanwhile, Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott is turning in the best season of his six-year career, leading the league with a passer rating of 110.8. While he’ll be facing a Kansas City defense that is ranked 23rd in passer rating allowed this season, he’ll have to do it without wide receiver Amari Cooper — currently on the team’s Reserve/COVID list. And over the last three games, the Chiefs’ defense has allowed just 38 points.

The Cowboys’ two-time NFL rushing champion Ezekiel Elliot isn’t having his best season — but he and running back Tony Pollard have still combined for more than 1100 yards on the ground in 2021. For the Chiefs, starting running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been activated from injured reserve after missing five games with a sprained MCL — and is expected to play on Sunday.
