We'll be checking in on PFF grades and data each Monday when numbers are finalized, highlighting some of the interesting performances from Sunday’s action.

Here are the top stories from Week 11.

WR Tee Higgins, Cincinnati Bengals

PFF grade: 89.1

The Cincinnati Bengals came out on top in a tricky road encounter with the Pittsburgh Steelers, thanks in large part to Tee Higgins. Targeted 11 times, Higgins pulled in nine catches for 148 yards. While he didn’t have a touchdown, eight of his nine receptions went for a first down.


TE Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs

PFF grade: 93.4

Travis Kelce was once again at his dominant best as the Chiefs defeated the Chargers on Sunday Night Football. En route to a 92.8 PFF receiving grade, he had six receptions for 115 yards and three touchdowns. Eighty-nine of his 115 yards came after the catch, and he broke two tackles. Kelce has now produced a 90.0-plus PFF grade in four games this season. 


LB Patrick Queen, Baltimore Ravens

PFF grade: 90.6

An underrated storyline for the Baltimore Ravens this season has been Queen's performance since Week 5, with a 75.0-plus PFF grade in all but one game over that stretch. Week 11 was his highest-graded showing of the season so far, particularly in the ground game. Queen made six tackles against the run, with all six resulting in a defensive stop.


LB Kaden Elliss, New Orleans Saints

PFF grade: 91.3

A seventh-round pick out of Idaho in 2019, Kaden Elliss had the best game of his career in the Saints' Week 11 win over the Rams. As a pass-rusher, he registered two sacks and two hurries on 11 snaps. And in coverage, he allowed just two receptions from 22 snaps and forced an incompletion.


DI Jonathan Allen, Washington Commanders

PFF grade: 90.2

Jonathan Allen was tremendous for the Commanders in their Week 11 win over the Houston Texans, producing one of the best performances of his career. As a pass-rusher, he registered two sacks, two hits and two hurries from 34 snaps — a 17.6% pressure rate.
