Welcome to our Week 11 picks around the NFL. The bye weeks are over, so teams are looking to the postseason. Who will get this week’s big wins? Look out for San Diego.
Chicago Bears vs. Miami Dolphins
Kendell: Chicago Bears
Jeremy: Chicago Bears
Alex: Chicago Bears
Kendell: The key to this game will be the battle in the trenches between Chicago’s defensive line and Miami’s offensive line. If the Bears get any pressure on Thigpen, expect a mistake; a lot of this game is riding on how safe the Miami O line can keep their brand new starter.
Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Kendell: Cincinnati Bengals
Jeremy: Buffalo Bills
Alex: Cincinnati Bengals
Jeremy: Buffalo’s coming off a BIG win against Detroit. Cincinnati is struggling, and Buffalo would like nothing better than to get out of the cellar.
Baltimore Ravens vs. Carolina Panthers
Kendell: Baltimore Ravens
Jeremy: Baltimore Ravens
Alex: Baltimore Ravens
Kendell: The Panthers aren’t strong enough to compete against the dangerous 6-3 Ravens and their impressive defense. I expect a shut out from Baltimore’s D in this game.
Detroit Lions vs. Dallas Cowboys
Kendell: Detroit Lions
Jeremy: Dallas Cowboys
Alex: Detroit Lions
Jeremy: Dallas is coming off a big win against one of the top NFC teams in the league. Now they’ll be facing one of the worst in the NFC. Expect Coach Jarrett and the ‘Boys to blow out this sorry Detroit team.
Cleveland Browns vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Kendell: Cleveland Browns
Jeremy: Jacksonville Jaguars
Alex: Cleveland Browns
Kendell: They’ve had their fair share of theatrics this season but the Jags can’t muster up the magic against a Browns team that grows more solid every week thanks to emerging two-headed monster Hillis and McCoy.
Arizona Cardinals vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Kendell: Kansas City Chiefs
Jeremy: Kansas City Chiefs
Alex: Kansas City Chiefs
Jeremy: The Arizona Cardinals have been struggling all year. They haven’t been able to stop the rush, and with KC’s No. 1 rushing offense—there will be problems.
Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings
Kendell: Green Bay Packers
Jeremy: Green Bay Packers
Alex: Green Bay Packers
Kendell: Though they barely played like it the last time these two teams crossed paths, the Packers are the better team this season and will leave Minnesota making sure the world knows that in Week 11.
Houston Texans vs. New York Jets
Kendell: New York Jets
Jeremy: New York Jets
Alex: New York Jets
Jeremy: Whatsup with New England facing these difficult teams, and New York having it easy? New York will beat the bad teams, and lose to the good.
Oakland Raiders vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Kendell: Oakland Raiders
Jeremy: Pittsburgh Steelers
Alex: Pittsburgh Steelers
Kendell: Oakland is rolling lately and after a bye week I see Tom Cable keeping this team poised and getting them ready to battle and ultimately defeat the Steelers with the accelerated maturity of Darren McFadden and the speed of their receivers.
Washington Redskins vs. Tennessee Titans
Kendell: Tennessee Titans
Jeremy: Tennessee Titans
Alex: Washington Redskins
Jeremy: Tennesse is about to unleash Randy Moss against the NFL’s worst pass defensive team. If you have him on your Fantasy Team, start him.
Seattle Seahawks vs. New Orleans Saints
Kendell: New Orleans Saints
Jeremy: New Orleans Saints
Alex: New Orleans Saints
Alex: Drew Brees leads a high- scoring attack with over 300 yards and multiple touchdowns; Sam Bradford is not able to match him.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. San Francisco 49ers
Kendell: San Francisco 49ers
Jeremy: San Francisco 49ers
Alex: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Alex: The Bucs continue to prove that they are worthy of a playoff spot.
Atlanta Falcons vs. St. Louis Rams
Kendell: Atlanta Falcons
Jeremy: Atlanta Falcons
Alex: Atlanta Falcons
Kendell: Matt Ryan is a winner, plain and simple. While the Rams are made of potential, the Falcons are too consistent a team to get beaten at this time in the season to this type of team.
Indianapolis Colts vs. New England Patriots
Kendell: Indianapolis Colts
Jeremy: New England Patriots
Alex: New England Patriots
Alex: The Pats are tested but Brady and the offensive are able to out gun the Colts and Peyton Manning.
New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Kendell: Philadelphia Eagles
Jeremy: Philadelphia Eagles
Alex: New York Giants
Jeremy: New York will prevent Michael Vick from scrambling and putting up ridiculous fantasy points this week. It’s going to be a great game, but I like Philadelphia’s secondary to shut down Eli and the New York offense.
Denver Broncos vs. San Diego Chargers
Kendell: San Diego Chargers
Jeremy: San Diego Chargers
Alex: San Diego Chargers
Alex: Despite putting up 59 points last week, the Broncos cool off and are beaten by MVP candidate Philip Rivers.
