NFL Week 11 | Picks & Predictions

Fresh off of a 7-6-1 week which makes my record for the year 94-55-1. I go into this week hoping to finish the second half of the season strong. For those of you who haven’t already go over and check out my NFL Mid-season Awards article where I gave my insight on current award winners and how they might change by season’s end. We got a good slate of games this week starting with my Patriots playing on Thursday night so let’s go ahead and get to my picks!

Thursday Night Game

Patriots vs. Panthers odds, picks, line, how to watch, live stream: Model  reveals 2021 Week 9 NFL predictions - CBSSports.com

New England (6-4) at Atlanta (4-5)

The Patriots have seemed to get it together and look like a legit threat in the AFC. The Falcons are coming off an a$$ kicking by the Cowboys but I do expect them to come out and try to avenge that loss with a prideful effort I just don’t think it’ll be enough. Mac Jones and this Patriots run game mixed in with how good the defense is playing will be just too much. New England gets to 7-4 and sets up a huge game with Tennessee coming up in Week 12.

Winner: Patriots 31-17

Sunday Afternoon Games

Colts vs Bills Opening Odds, Betting Lines and Prediction for Week 11 Game  on FanDuel Sportsbook

Indianapolis (5-5) at Buffalo (6-3)

I hope like hell the Colts pull off the upset here for my Patriots sake but I just don’t trust Carson Wentz in meaningful games. So unfortunately I’m picking Buffalo even though I will be rooting to the Colts.

Winner: Bills 29-19

Cam Newton gets Panthers on board in Carolina return - New York Daily News

Washington (3-6) at Carolina (5-5)

Cam is back and I’m all here for it. I have always been a Cam guy. After an impressive win over Arizona last week it just feels like this Panthers team could sneak into the playoffs. But then you got Washington who just shocked Tampa Bay last week. Something has to give right? I’m going to roll with Carolina this week and I expect Christian McCaffrey to go off and the loss of Chase Young to really hurt Washington.

Winner: Carolina 23-14

Ravens escape close game, but Bills don't: What happened in Week 9 and what  it means for the Browns - cleveland.com

Baltimore (6-3) at Chicago (3-6)

The Ravens embarrassed themselves last Thursday and I expect them to come out and play a complete game this week. Lamar and the run game tops 150 yards and the Ravens get back on track in a much needed bounce back win.

Winner: Baltimore 32-19

Browns Game Today: Browns vs Broncos injury report, schedule, live stream,  TV channel, and betting preview for Week 7 NFL game

Detroit (0-8-1) at Cleveland (5-5)

Detroit sucks bad. After watching them and Pittsburgh I debated never watching football again. Yes, it was that bad. I don’t think the Lions want to win this year so I’ll be damned if I’m going to pick them.

Winner: Cleveland 20-10

Live NFL updates: 49ers vs. Jaguars on Sunday

San Francisco (4-5) at Jacksonville (2-7)

Toss up game. Heads for 49ers or tails for the Jaguars. Heads it is come on San Fran you can do it.

Winner: 49ers 21-20

Instant analysis: Vikings hold off Packers, pull off upset at Lambeau Field

Green Bay (8-2) at Minnesota (4-5)

Green Bay has Aaron Rodgers back and they dominated Seattle this week but this game is one of those road division games where you toss the records out the window. But Minnesota is a decent team that just seems to always find a new way to lose. I think a Mason Crosby field goal late in the fourth wins this game for Green Bay as I expect this game to be close and go down to the wire.

Winner: Packers 27-24

Dolphins vs Jets Fantasy Football Worksheet, Week 12 | Sharp Football

Miami (3-7) at New York Jets (2-7)

If there was ever a game I would pick the Jets this would be the one. So I am picking the Jets! Just kidding they still suck. Go dolphins.

Winner: Miami 16-13

In first NFL start, Jalen Hurts helps Eagles beat Saints 24-21 - WHYY

New Orleans (5-4) at Philadelphia (4-6)

This Saints team has injured players all over their roster but continue to fight like hell each week. The Eagles are all over the damn place and coming off a win against Denver last week. This is my game of the week I consider a literal toss up. I’m assuming Saints running back Alvin Kamara returns and they ride him and recently acquired Mark Ingram to victory. Saints squeak one out.

Winner: Saints 20-14

NFL Week 17 PFF ReFocused: Tennessee Titans 35, Houston Texans 14 | NFL  News, Rankings and Statistics | PFF

Houston (1-8) at Tennessee (8-2)

This game should be a cake walk unless Tennessee is looking ahead to New England next week. I don’t think that will be the case. Titans roll easily.

Winner: Tennessee 30-13

Sunday Evening Games

Winners and losers for Raiders in Week 11 vs Bengals

Cincinnati (5-4) at Las Vegas (5-4)

This is me just being an asshole. I am sick of Bengals fans bragging how good they are even though they lost to the Jets and got blown out by the Browns. Living in Ohio there really aren’t two dumber fan bases than the Bengals and Ohio State. Except Pittsburgh. Anyways, I’m going with the Raiders.

Winner: Raiders 26-20

Chiefs vs. Cowboys, Week 9: Time, channel, streaming info and more

Dallas (7-2) at Kansas City (6-4)

Game of the week in my opinion. I expect a shootout. Two great quarterbacks and offenses going head to head. This was by far the hardest game for me to pick this week but I am going to trust Dak over Mahomes. It really isn’t that crazy as Mahomes hasn’t played well as of late and Dak looks better than ever. Cowboys beat the Chiefs and keep pace with the other teams in the top heavy NFC.

Winner: Dallas 35-34

NFL Week 11 PFF ReFocused: Seattle Seahawks 28, Arizona Cardinals 21 | NFL  News, Rankings and Statistics | PFF

Arizona (8-2) at Seattle (3-6)

This just feels like an upset. Kyler Murray is hurt and even if he plays he won’t be 100% and I just think after the dud Russell Wilson and Seattle put up last week against Green Bay that the offense rebounds this week. Plus it’s a division game and you know how those go. Seattle wins a very physical game.

Winner: Seattle 23-20

Sunday Night Game

Who the experts are taking in Chargers vs. Steelers

Pittsburgh (5-3-1) at Los Angeles Chargers (5-4)

After watching Pittsburgh tie with Detroit I’m convinced there not a good team. Look at who they have beat. The Chargers are winning this game. Pittsburgh tied with Detroit for lords sake.

Winner: Chargers 24-16

Monday Night Game

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rally past the New York Giants: Recap, score, stats  and more - oregonlive.com

New York Giants (3-6) at Tampa Bay (6-3)

Tom Brady famously struggles with the Giants but coming off a loss to Washington Tom is pissed and I expect him to play well this week. Bad news is Tampa’s defense has not been playing well and for that reason I don’t expect this game to be a blow out. I think a late fourth quarter drive is needed by the GOAT and the Bucs get back on the right track with a hard fought win on Monday night.

Winner: Tampa Bay 27-20

Byes: Denver, Los Angeles Rams
