Week 11 in the NFL is a critical point for some teams.
With the playoff field shaping up, teams who aren’t leading their division need to win games to make the playoffs.
While some teams are close to regaining their division, others need to win to stay in the Wild Card race.
As Week 11 kicks off, which two NFL teams can’t afford to lose this week?
2. Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers have put themselves back into the playoff picture with their win over the Dallas Cowboys.

However, they are still behind the Washington Commanders and San Francisco 49ers for the last playoff spot.
With the Packers working on a short week against the Tennessee Titans, they can’t afford a loss.
If they lose, and the teams behind them win, they can fall further behind in the playoff race.
With their schedule getting tougher after this game, a loss here only stops the momentum they just built.
1. Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills were Super Bowl favorites to start the 2022 NFL season.
However, the team is on a two-game losing streak and has lost two games in their division.
If they drop a third consecutive game, it will crush the Bills this season.
With them slipping down to third place in the AFC East, they can’t afford a loss.
While they are going against the Cleveland Browns, the weather is boding well for the Browns.
With their opponent having two premier running backs, the Bills are in dangerous waters with the weather favoring the running game.
