|NFL Week 11 Picks|
|Last Week: 8-6 Season: 90-54|
|The Falcons have won two
straight, but if the Bucs can maintain some semblance of health the rest
of the way, I like their playoff chances.
|The Browns appear to have far too
much offensive punch for the fast-fading Ravens, but this one is going
to be closer than most people expect.
|The Giants can rush the QB, while the Lions have had some protection issues. Look for
Detroit to use a lot of three-step and play-action passes.
|Even with a suspect victory at
home versus the lowly Dolphins, the Eagles' remaining schedule does not
bode well for a serious playoff run.
|Over the last six weeks, the 2007
Raiders haven't looked much better then the '06 version. But the Vikings don't have a lot of offensive weapons.
|Which Chargers club is going to
show up this week in Jacksonville? The Jags hope the return of David Garrard will give the offense some needed balance.
|The injury-riddled Colts have to
believe a victory over KC is essential if they are to hold off the
Steelers for a first-round playoff bye.
|If the inconsistent Bengals
actually show up, they are more than capable of beating a Cardinals club
that has a chance of contending for a playoff spot.
|Given their QB
situation, it's hard to see Carolina winning many more games. Journeyman RB Grant has stepped it up last three weeks
|After a very disappointing loss
at home to the Rams, the Saints find themselves in a must-win situation
on the road versus the Texans. I like their chances.
|The Steelers appear to be in
midseason form while the struggling Jets are just looking for a victory.
Don't look for it to happen versus Pittsburgh.
|It's crunch time for the
inconsistent division-leading Seahawks. With the Cardinals just a
game back, a win over the defending NFC Champs is essential.
|The 49ers are in total disarray,
and despite their head-to-head record vs. the Rams and homefield
advantage, look for the Rams to make it two straight.
|This one's critical to the
Redskins' playoff chances, but I just don't think they have the
offensive firepower to match up against their longtime rivals.
|Interesting matchup, but don't
look for Rocky Balboa to shock the world Sunday night. If Losman doesn't kick it up a notch, this one could get out of
|In a matchup of second-year QBs,
look for Jay Cutler and his Broncos to prevail over a disappointing
Vince Young and the Titans.
