New England Patriots 33 Oakland Raiders 8
En la semana 11, los New England Patriots aplastaron a los Raiders de Oakland frente a una multitud loca en la Ciudad de México.

Special teams recovered from their week 10 disaster and the defence were better also. However, the struggles of the offence were once again in evidence, costing the Broncos the game, Brock Osweiler his starting job and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy his position with the Broncos.
