The Los Angeles Chargers are in a weird spot playing at SoFi Stadium. There is no doubt the Chargers are located in Los Angeles, but the team hasn’t found a foothold in the city, especially with the Rams’ recent success. Playing Kansas City on a Sunday night will be a good chance for the Chargers to get people to pay attention.
Last season, the teams split their two NFL matchups, with each team winning on the road. The Chargers hope this will be one of the NFL Week 11 matchups that turn out differently. Kansas City stole last season’s game in overtime after Travis Kelce scored on a touchdown pass with less than two minutes remaining. Kelce would also score the game-winner in overtime.

Here’s a look at some interesting facts about NFL Week 11 matchups.
King of the North
Cincinnati will head to Pittsburgh to try and assert its continued success in the AFC North. The Bengals, who will be trying to repeat as division champions for the first time in their history, winning at Heinz Field would be a good way to establish their position. While Cincinnati has never won back-to-back division titles, bad luck impacted that during the 1982 season.
The Cincinnati Bengals finished with the AFC Central’s best record, but there were no divisions that year due to a player’s strike that forced the season to be limited to nine games. Cincinnati finished that year 7-2. The year before, the Bengals had won the AFC North before losing to San Francisco in the Super Bowl.
Other important matchups
- Cleveland and Buffalo should be a fun matchup no matter who is under center for the Browns. The Browns feature a strong rushing attack that will test the Bills’ rebuilt defense. Buffalo Bills will be trying to show that the success they’ve shown under quarterback Josh Allen is no fluke.
- Philadelphia heading to Indianapolis will be a challenge for quarterback Jalen Hurts. Hurts, who passed for 3,144 yards, 16 touchdowns, and nine interceptions last season, will need to be efficient as the Colts’ offense is effective at controlling the ball. Hurts struggled with consistency as a rookie.
