As the NFL continues the second half of the 2018 season, the playoff picture becomes more of a focus each week — especially with a handful of key games in Week 11.

Seventeen teams are currently in or within one game of playoff position, including nine teams that did not advance to the postseason last year. Since the 12-team playoff format began in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the year before. But a slow start does not mean a team can be counted out. Since 1990, 27 teams have qualified for the playoffs with a losing record through nine games.

Five teams are currently riding win steaks of at least four games, led by the Saints, who have won eight consecutive games. The Texans and Chargers have both won six straight games, while the Steelers and Chiefs have won five and four consecutive games, respectively. The Texans, who began the season 0-3, are the second team since 1970 to win six consecutive games immediately following an 0-3 start, joining the 1970 Giants.

With that as the backdrop, below are Week 11 NFL scores, highlights and injury updates from Sunday's action around the league.
