NFL WEEK 11
Byes: Texans, Colts, Saints and Steelers.
NY Jets at Denver Broncos 8:20 PM
Despite Tim Tebow’s winning streak, there’s no way they can pull off a victory against the Jets if he is completing only two passes. As much as I like the Tebow magic, common sense kicks in that the Jets will take this game handily.
Jets 24, Broncos 6
Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens 1:00 PM
The Bengals put up a good fight against the Steelers on Sunday, but I think they chose the wrong week to run into a Ravens’ team that has been pretty solid at home to say the least. I think the good Baltimore team shows up this week and stay undefeated in the division.
Ravens 23, Bengals 14
Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins 1:00 PM
The Cowboys are looking like the team they were projected to be in the pre-season and I think they will continue to take advantage of a weaker stretch of this schedule. Tony Romo has now moved up to the second best quarterback in the division, and he will continue his stellar play.
Cowboys 34, Redskins 13
Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins 1:00 PM
The Bills have cooled down considerably and I hope that they use this week to get back on track and beat the red-hot Dolphin team (all pun intended).
Bills 27, Dolphins 17
Tennessee Titans at Atlanta Falcons 1:00 PM
The Falcons need to bounce back after a heart-breaking loss at home last week against the Saints, and I think they will do just that because they are playing some good football right now. The Titans will come to compete, but the home field advantage will make a big difference.
Falcons 20, Titans 14
Oakland Raiders at Minnesota Vikings 1:00 PM
Carson Palmer should have a field day with the Vikings’ secondary and if they can contain Adrian Peterson for the whole game then they should be able to get this win on the road and keep an edge in the division.
Raiders 24, Vikings 13
Jacksonville Jaguars at Cleveland Browns 1:00 PM
The Browns and the Jags both are allergic to offense, but I like Jacksonville’s chances of pulling off a win because at least they can put a touchdown on the board. You don’t need that much points to beat Cleveland.
Jaguars 14, Browns 9
Carolina Panthers at Detroit Lions 1:00 PM
The Lions’ offense should have a field day against Carolina’s shaky defense and they will continue to put the pressure on Cam Newton in order to keep pace in the NFC wildcard race.
Lions 27, Panthers 14
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Green Bay Packers 1:00 PM
The Packers are just too good this year and I don’t think this will even be a contest, especially at Lambeau Field.
Packers 34, Buccaneers 17
Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams 4:05 PM
The Rams have been better this stretch of their schedule and I think having a three-game winning streak will be enough motivation for them this season.
Rams 13, Seahawks 7
Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers 4:05 PM
The 49ers proved that they are for real. There’s no way the Cardinals can slow down this attack this week on the road.
49ers 28, Cardinals 7
San Diego Chargers at Chicago Bears 4:15 PM
I have finally given up on the Chargers until further notice. They don’t match up well against the hottest teams in the NFL not named the Packers. Defense and special teams will play big.
Bears 27, Chargers 17
Philadelphia Eagles at NY Giants 8:20 PM
Even if Michael Vick plays on Sunday night, they are too out of sync as a team to pull off a win on the road. The G-men are playing consistent and I think they will capitalize against a team that can’t put the pieces together this season.
Giants 24, Eagles 14
Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots 8:30 PM
Tom Brady will have an early Thanksgiving meal after he feasts on this Chiefs’ team come Monday. I expect a lot of touchdowns from this Patriots team, and another win to create distance in the division.
Patriots 37, Chiefs 20
