Thursday Night Football Recap Week 11

Week 11 started off in the Queen City of Charlotte, NC with the Carolina Panthers hosting the Miami Dolphins. Two teams at 4-5 looking to improve their playoff hopes. A great statistic from the NFL Network: 21 of the last 22 seasons, a team that reached 5-5 has went to reach the playoffs.

Miami 24, Carolina 17- In three short days after losing RB Ronnie Brown to the foot injury that landed him on the IR, the Miami Dolphins relied on the legs and power of Ricky Williams, who ran for 119 yards on 22 carries and two touchdowns, and he caught a touchdown pass from Chad Henne, and the Miami Dolphins held off the Carolina Panthers 24-17. Williams first score was a 14 yard TD reception from Henne that put Miami up 7-3. Then from the wildcat formation, Williams beat the defense to the pylon for a one yard TD run, and his third touchdown, which was set up by a rollout pass by Chad Henne to Davone Bess on 3rd & 11, was a 46 yard TD run in which he ran over the Panthers like he did many times during his days with the New Orleans Saints. The Panthers got back in the game down 17-6 when Jake Delhomme found Steve Smith for a 27 yard TD pass. Smith had seven catches for 87 yards to go along with the TD. The win was huge for Miami as they stay very much alive in the playoff picture, and the loss was devastating for the Panthers as they had a chance to be 1/2 game out of the wild card spots, but now find themselves 1 1/2 games back and will need a load of help on Sunday to stay well in the picture. Dolphins (5-5) Panthers (4-6)

Next Thursday Recap will be part of the Thanksgiving Triple Header, and TSX will be back on Monday morning for the Sunday games.
