NFL Week 11 reactions: Romo returns, Osweiler plays for Manning and more

NFL

Week 11 of the 2015 NFL season is officially in the books. As always, it was a week full of brilliant plays, comebacks, upsets … and of course some pretty bad performances too.

Just like every week, SiriusXM’s sports channels covered all the action from this past weekend. Here’s a look at what they had to say about some of the biggest stories from Week 11:


Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo made his long awaited return from injury, and got the team their first victory since September, as Dallas beat the Miami Dolphins 24-14. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined NFL Radio and praised the QB.

“With Romo we can be one of the top teams that we thought we had a chance to be,” Jones said. “It’s obvious today that we don’t win that game if we don’t have Romo.”

The Philadelphia Eagles and Mark Sanchez got knocked around by Jameis Winston and the Tampa Buccaneers, 45-17, and Mad Dog Sports Radio’s Adam Schein was disgusted with Chip Kelly’s team.

“The Eagles looked pathetic,” Schein said. “Mark Sanchez. If only anybody would have seen this coming. Oh wait. That was me, and probably you, and probably everybody else who watches football and understands that Sanchez plays his worst when it matters the most.”

With Peyton Manning out injured, backup quarterback Brock Osweiler led the Denver Broncos to a 17-15 win over the Chicago Bears. Broncos linebacker DeMarcus Ware told Bleacher Report Radio his thoughts on playing with the young quarterback.

“You see how much he’s really learned from Peyton,” Ware said. “Kudos to him for listening, and learning, and absorbing everything he can from the best quarterback in the NFL, and now going out there and excelling.”

On the fantasy side, quarterback Joe Flacco suffered a season-ending injury in the Baltimore Ravens’ 16-13 win over the St. Louis Rams. Ravens tight end Crockett Gillmore spoke to Fantasy Sports Radio about backup QB Matt Schaub preparing to takeover the passing duties.

“We’re going to have to get him comfortable with what we do,” Crockett said. “He’s gotta be ready, and I know Matt is.”

Fantasy owners of Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch also got some bad news, with reports suggesting Lynch may have a season-ending sports hernia injury. Dr. David J. Chao updated Fantasy Sports Radio on Lynch’s status the rest of the season.

“The hope is that he can still finish the season,” Chao said. “The surgery is about a six-week recovery if he has it.”
