Week 11 of the 2023 NFL season is underway and the playoff picture is coming into more focus as we approach Thanksgiving week.

We already got a big result on Thursday night with the Ravens toppling the Bengals 34-20. Baltimore maintained its lead on top of a tough AFC North and are right on the heels of the Chiefs for the top seed in the league. Meanwhile, Cincinnati is now on the outside looking in and things will get tougher for the team with Joe Burrow being lost for the year.

7:41 p.m. ET update: Just three games in the late window and we got some consequential results in the NFC West. With the 49ers beating the Buccaneers and the Seahawks falling to the Rams, San Francisco has taken sole possession of first place in that division.

That just leaves two primetime games on the docket with the Vikings visiting the Broncos for Sunday Night Football and the epic Super Bowl rematch between the Chiefs and Eagles on Monday.

4:25 p.m. ET update: The early Sunday window was a wild one with five games being decided by one score. The Lions were able to punch in a touchdown in the final minute to avoid an upset at the hands of the Bears. Meanwhile, the Browns were able to jump the Steelers in the AFC North by way of a last-second field goal.

Here’s a look at what the playoff picture looks like as the NFL works its way through Week 11.
