NFL picks, predictions for Week 11

  • Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns (-2 half of)

Thursday, 8:20 p.m. ET, Fox, NFL Network, Amazon Prime Video

Week 11 begins with a doozie.

Cleveland and its house crowd will probably be fired as much as beat its division rival in entrance of a nationwide TV viewers, however Pittsburgh has two key benefits. The Steelers anticipate to have James Conner again to face a struggling Browns rush protection, and the highway staff additionally has the higher coach — by far.

Pick: Steelers 20, Browns 17

  • Denver Broncos at Minnesota Vikings (-10)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS

Minnesota’s win in Dallas final week was large, and it signaled to the remainder of the NFC that the Vikings are clicking and certain a fixture within the playoff image transferring ahead. The Broncos and Brandon Allen discovered sufficient offense of their newest win to go with their still-stingy scoring protection. The Vikings’ scoring protection, although, is best, and if Adam Thielen performs Sunday to assist elevate Minnesota’s offense, the house staff should not have any hassle rolling into its bye week with a win.

Pick: Vikings 26, Broncos 16

  • Dallas Cowboys (-Three half of) at Detroit Lions

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, Fox

In idea, Matthew Stafford enjoying on this sport would at the very least make it extra attention-grabbing, however his standing in all probability is irrelevant because it pertains to the end result. The Cowboys, armed with a stable protection themselves, have an excessive amount of offense for the Lions’ terrible protection. Even if Detroit pulls a Minnesota and does all it might probably to cease Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott will rip aside its secondary. As lengthy as Dallas takes this highway sport in an early Sunday afternoon window significantly and would not beat itself with turnovers or penalties, it should not have any hassle sustaining its lead within the NFC East.

Pick: Cowboys 35, Lions 24

  • New Orleans Saints (-5 half of) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, Fox

Speaking of NFC South contenders, the Panthers are fortunate the Falcons beat the Saints final week to reduce the impression of their loss to the Packers. Carolina’s struggling run protection is regarding, however Atlanta, 29th within the NFL in speeding, is just not precisely a daunting opponent in that regard. As lengthy because the Panthers have James Bradberry again wholesome, they need to be capable to comprise the Falcons’ passing sport sufficient to outscore their rivals with heavy doses of Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel.

Pick: Panthers 30, Falcons 24

  • Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts (-3 half of)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS

The Colts ought to get Jacoby Brissett again this week to match the return of Nick Foles within the Jaguars’ lineup, an important growth for an Indianapolis staff that was embarrassed by Miami final week largely because of offensive ineptitude. With Marlon Mack towards a shaky Jacksonville run protection, Indy ought to have a bonus.

Pick: Jaguars 26, Colts 21

  • New York Jets at Washington Redskins (-2 half of)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, Fox

The Redskins get the unfold of their favor as the house staff, however label us hesitant to belief a Washington squad that has scored a mean of 9 factors in its final three video games. The Giants’ putrid protection offered the enhance the Jets wanted final week, and Sam Darnold, Le’Veon Bell and Co. get to face one other weak unit in Week 11. On the power of its rush protection, New York will separate itself from one of many few NFL groups which can be worse than it’s.

Pick: Jets 23, Redskins 20

  • Buffalo Bills (-5) at Miami Dolphins

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS

For at the very least another sport, any struggles for the Bills’ offense will not matter. (These are actually the identical phrases we used after we picked Buffalo to beat Miami again in Week 7. Sure sufficient, the Bills received 31-21.) Miami is on a random two-game profitable streak going into this sport, however the engineer of its wins, former Bill Ryan Fitzpatrick, will cool off towards Buffalo’s third-ranked scoring protection. The 31st-ranked scoring protection within the NFL, in the meantime, will probably be exploited by the Bills as soon as once more.

Pick: Bills 28, Dolphins 17

  • Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens (-4)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS

This is by far the most effective early Sunday afternoon sport on the Week 11 schedule because of what needs to be a showcase of QB expertise. The Ravens’ Lamar Jackson and the Texans’ Deshaun Watson are excessive on the checklist of NFL MVP candidates this season, and on top of that, each groups are main their respective divisions because the AFC playoff image turns into extra related. Baltimore has the NFL’s finest speeding offense, however Houston is just not far behind.

Pick: Texans 28, Ravens 26

  • Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers (-13 half of)

Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET, Fox

Pick: Patriots 20, Eagles 17

  • Cincinnati Bengals at Oakland Raiders (-10)

Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET, CBS

We assume — assume — the Bengals are the one staff within the NFL with which we are able to really feel comfy whereas making picks. Cincinnati, particularly with Andy Dalton on the bench, is definitely the worst staff in a season that options an uncommon quantity of very unhealthy groups. The Raiders, then again, are refreshingly attention-grabbing and all of the sudden legit contenders for an AFC playoff spot. Expect one other massive sport from Josh Jacobs, this time towards the NFL’s worst rush protection.

Pick: Raiders 31, Bengals 20

  • Chicago Bears at Los Angeles Rams (-7)

Sunday, 8:20 p.m. ET, NBC

Before the season, anyone may have fairly acknowledged this Week 11 matchup was a preview of a playoff sport within the NFC. It technically nonetheless may very well be, however neither the Bears nor the Rams encourage a lot optimism. The Bears lastly confirmed some indicators of offensive life of their win over the Lions final week, however the Rams, regardless of some struggles of their very own, nonetheless have the extra reliable assault. LA’s protection will get again on monitor, and coach Sean McVay will scheme his approach to sufficient factors for a win.

Pick: Rams 24, Bears 17

  • Kansas City Chiefs (-Three half of) vs. Los Angeles Chargers in Mexico City

Monday, 8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN

Let’s do that once more. The discipline points that pressured Mexico City’s sport to maneuver to LA final 12 months reportedly will not resurface, so followers at Estadio Azteca lastly will get their Patrick Mahomes present. Speaking of resurfacing, will the outdated Philip Rivers ultimately present up this season? The Chargers are removed from performed as contenders within the AFC, however they will development that manner if their QB’s struggles proceed. They’ll want massive numbers from him Monday in an effort to sustain with the Chiefs.
