NFL Picks Week 11 – Previews for Every Game

New Orleans at Carolina

The Carolina Panthers loss to the Kansas City Chiefs at home last Sunday should end any discussion of “the Panthers could still make a run at the playoffs”. Halfway through November, they’re dead last in the NFC South, and the third worst team in the NFC right now. Needless to say, 2016 hasn’t been nearly as magical for Carolina as 2015 was.

Pick: New Orleans

Tennessee at Indianapolis

Who would’ve thought that the quarterback coming into this game on a sizzling hot streak would be Marcus Mariota?. He’s currently fourth in the NFL in touchdown passes thrown (21). Seventh in passer rating (99.6), eight in passing yards (2,482) and yards per attempt (7.83). He has his team only one-and-a-half games out of first place in the AFC South.

Pick: Tennessee

Jacksonville at Detroit

Jacksonville went from being one of the trendiest preseason “breakout” predictions, to one of the four worst teams in the NFL. Their -65 point differential to date is tied for second worst in the AFC. Only the Cleveland Browns have a worse point differential than the Jaguars. Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley would be wise to start updating his résumé from now.

Pick: Detroit

Tampa Bay at Kansas City

Could there be a more non-descript team with seven wins so far than the Kansas City Chiefs?. They’re tied for the second highest win total among all NFL teams to date this season, yet the common fan probably couldn’t name more than five starters on their entire roster. What they lack in star power, they make up for in old school, workmanlike football.

Pick: Kansas City

Chicago at NY Giants

Wouldn’t you know it?. After all the doubters came out in full force and talked about how Odell Beckham Jr. had become too much of a distraction for his team, and new head coach Ben McAdoo might be in over his head, the Giants are riding a four-game winning streak. They currently hold the fifth seed in the NFC playoff race. With a win this Sunday, they will exceed their entire win total from 2015.

Pick: New York

Arizona at Minnesota

A November match-up between two teams that came into this past offseason with such high expectations, but have failed miserably to live up to them. Both teams will finish this season, and enter the next offseason, with major question marks as to what they’re going to do. Especially over the long-term, at their respective quarterback positions.

Pick: Arizona

Buffalo at Cincinnati

The loser of this game is going to take one step closer towards ending any postseason aspirations they might have had. Cincinnati has only won one of its last five games (to the lowly Cleveland Browns). While the Buffalo Bills squandered away their promising 4-2 start with their current three-game losing streak.

Pick: Cincinnati

[fcrp_feat_sc sc_id=”451″]

Baltimore at Dallas

Jerry Jones essentially confirmed that Dak Prescott is the official and entrenched starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, ahead of Tony Romo. There was simply no way the Cowboys could have given Romo back the job, given the way Prescott has performed to date. He’s won 8 straight starts; that’s tied for 2nd-longest win streak by a rookie since the 1970 merger.

Pick: Dallas

Pittsburgh at Cleveland

Simply put, this is not the game that the Cleveland Browns are going to pick up their first win of the season. If it weren’t for the facts that they couldn’t get a single hand on running back Ezekiel Elliott for much of last Sunday’s game. Plus they made boneheaded mistakes at the worst possible times. The Pittsburgh Steelers should have beaten Dallas last Sunday. Even with all the questions they continue to have on defense, this team remains a contender in the AFC.

Pick: Pittsburgh

Miami at Los Angeles

Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher made it official this week, declaring rookie quarterback Jared Goff as the team’s starting quarterback. After going 3-1 through their first four games, the Rams have regressed back to their standard Jeff Fisher-esque mean, losing their last four games to put them at 3-5 through eight games. As a result, Goff gets to deal with star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh of the Miami Dolphins in his first NFL start.

Pick: Miami

New England at San Francisco

There are rarely ever instances where you can justify a loss as a good thing in the NFL, but that just might be the case for the New England Patriots. Too many people began discussing the idea of how the Patriots might not have lost a game once Tom Brady returned to the lineup. This is the perfect “tune-up” game for them to get things back on track after taking a loss to Seattle last week.

Pick: New England.

Philadelphia at Seattle

When Seattle plays the way they did last Sunday, they are the scariest team in the NFL to go up against. Russell Wilson looked healthy and spry, making plays from inside and outside the pocket. But more importantly, that defense continues to play at an extremely high level. No matter how slow they might have started this season, the Seahawks remain a team that will get better as the season goes on. Nobody will want to face the Seahawks come January.

Pick: Seattle.

Green Bay at Washington

Even amidst a really frustrating season in Green Bay, culminating in their embarrassing loss to Tennessee last week. There are still some signs of hope for the Packers. They might be 1-4 over their last five games, but they’re still scoring over 27.6 points per game. Plus Aaron Rodgers is still averaging 306 yards and three touchdowns over the last three games. Even after getting gashed on the ground all game long by the Titans, Green Bay is still fourth in rushing yards allowed per game (85.3), tied for fifth in opposing yards per carry (3.6), and tied for seventh in rushing touchdowns allowed (five).

Pick: Green Bay.

Houston at Oakland

The Raiders need a win on Sunday, to keep up in the ultra-competitive AFC West. Both the Broncos and the Chiefs, their two biggest rivals, picked up huge road wins last week. This technically might be a “home game” for the Raiders, but the game will take place far away from Oakland, as it’ll be played in Mexico City.

Pick: Oakland.
