Two of the NFL’s most exciting young quarterbacks square off Sunday when the Houston Texans meet the Baltimore Ravens (1:00 p.m. ET, CBS). Last week, Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson recorded his second game this season with a 158.3 passer rating, the highest possible mark, and became the second player in NFL history (Ben Roethlisberger, 2007) to post two 158.3 passer ratings in the same season.
Earlier this season in Week 5, Houston’s Deshaun Watson posted his own 158.3 rating. Watson enters Week 11 ranked fourth in the NFL with a 107.1 passer rating, while Jackson is ninth with a 101.7 mark. Sunday’s matchup is the second time in NFL history that two starting quarterbacks under the age of 25 with a passer rating of 100-or-better will square off in Week 11 or later.
The NFL returns to Mexico when the Los Angeles Chargers host the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football (8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN). Estadio Azteca, which is 7,201 feet above sea level, will host a regular season NFL game for the fourth time (also 2005, 2016 and 2017).
Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who makes his 26th career start this week, has 8,007 career passing yards, the most by a quarterback in his first 25 starts in NFL history. Mahomes, who has 68 career touchdown passes, also surpassed Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Marino (65 touchdown passes) for the most touchdown passes by a player in his first 25 career starts in NFL history.
