Week 11 Game Predictions

The Broncos pulled within a half a game with a win over Rex Ryan's Jets on Thursday night, giving new meaning to Oakland's match-up with the Vikings on Sunday. Here are the rest of my game picks for Week 11's action (I had picked the Jets to beat the Broncos).

Sunday November 20

Ravens over Bengals
Rookie Andy Dalton has fared really well early on, but playing two of the game's top defenses in back-to-back weeks is bound to take a toll on such an inexperienced quarterback.

Jaguars over Browns
Peyton Hillis' 211 rushing yards and two TDs so far this season has proved that the "Madden curse" has struck again. Colt McCoy has been a disappointment thus far as well.

Lions over Panthers
Ndamukong Suh must be salivating over this match-up with rookie quarterback Cam Newton. And I would expect the Stafford-Megatron connection to be brought back up against Carolina's secondary this week.

Packers over Bucs
Josh Freeman was expected to breakout with Tampa this season, but I haven't seen much to prove this through 10 weeks of play. Green Bay will improve to 10-0.

Dolphins over Bills
Buffalo's hopeful season has crashed and burned, riding a two-game losing streak (5-4). Something leads me to believe that Miami's sudden hot streak (two consecutive victories after an 0-7 start) will continue against Ryan Fitzpatrick's Bills.
Vikings over Raiders
Carson Palmer's Raiders are fighting to keep its half game division lead over Denver, but I think rookie Christian Ponder will bounce back after Monday night's devastating loss...note: his only poor performances of the season came against the 9-0 Packers.

Cowboys over Skins
With Philadelphia's struggles continuing, Tony Romo and his 'Boys get the perfect opportunity to make a late-season playoff run. At 5-4, a victory here over Washington (five-game losing streak) would put them in great position.

Niners over Cardinals
Kevin Kolb is by far the biggest off-season mistake, and he may not even be in the lineup Sunday against the one-loss Niners. Frank Gore and the Niners will once again put up a solid scoring day against Arizona's defense.

Seahawks over Rams
Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has shown some promise at times this season, though this may be the game with the least importance out of all the games being played this week.

Titans over Falcons
Yes, I'm calling the upset. Tennessee has the momentum after a crushing victory over Carolina last week as they battle it out with Houston for the AFC South division. It may be tough for Atlanta to bounce back from a devastating loss to New Orleans last week.
Bears over Chargers
With Matt Forte on the field, Chicago doesn't need much help from signal caller Jay Culter (he attempted just 19 passes in the team's 37-13 victory over Detroit last week). Chicago is one of the top three teams in the NFC right now, riding a four-game win streak.

Giants over Eagles
It's Week 11 and we've all already ruled Philadelphia (3-6; tied with Washington for third/last in the NFC East) out of playoff contention. A loss here would confirm it. Eli is looking for the knockout punch on Mike Vick.

Monday November 21

Patriots over Chiefs
First Jamaal Charles, now quarterback Matt Cassel. How many more season-ending injuries to star players can Kansas City handle in one season? Kansas City, despite a weaker division, will not be making a playoff run in the West and New England shouldn't have much trouble as long as the offensive line can contain Tamba Hali.

Byes: Texans, Colts, Saints, Steelers
