Week 11 Game Predictions

Wow. Two straight weeks of getting 12 of 14 picks right. Who's the man? (Hint: Me.) Too bad I've already missed one this week. Yep, picked the Patriots. Ah well.

Last week's record: 12-2
Season record: 89-55 (61.8%)

Broncos over Falcons - Didn't I learn anything from picking the Saints over Atlanta last week? Apparently not. I think it's about time the Falcons lose another one.

Eagles over Bengals - Never picking Cincinnati. Not happening.

Packers over Bears - With Orton starting for Chicago again, this is probably an upset pick. But really in this rivalry, it's always a toss-up.

Colts over Texans - Indianapolis is about to get on a roll, just watch. They may not win the AFC South, but I think they'll secure a wild card spot.

Saints over Chiefs - So apparently Tyler Thigpen doesn't suck. In fact, he's played damn good ball over the last month. But the Chiefs' defense still does suck, and New Orleans' offense will be too much for them to handle.

Dolphins over Raiders - If the Dolphins want to think about the playoffs this season, they have to win the games they should. This is one of those games and I think Miami pulls it out.

Giants over Ravens - Wow, an incredibly tough intra-conference game to pick. I'll stick with the Super Bowl champs, but it could easily go either way.

Vikings over Buccaneers - Tampa Bay hasn't looked that good lately, even in two wins over bad teams (Seattle and Kansas City). I think Adrian Peterson leads the Vikings to a win here.

Panthers over Lions - Jake Delhomme's performance against Oakland last week (7-for-27, four interceptions) might be one of the worst quarterbacking jobs in a victory in the history of the league. Still, he could probably repeat that performance (which is unlikely) and still beat the hapless Lions.

49ers over Rams - Mike Singletary's well on his way to proving he should not be an NFL head coach, but I still can't justify picking St. Louis any this season.

Cardinals over Seahawks - The ageless Kurt Warner is playing at an MVP level and should have no problem picking apart their division rivals from the Pacific Northwest.

Steelers over Chargers - Could the Chargers pull off an upset here? Sure, but I'm not betting on it.

Titans over Jaguars - You simply can't pick against a Titans team that's rolling like this.

Cowboys over Redskins - Can the return of Tony Romo spark the Cowboys? I'm going to (somewhat) boldly say it can and it will.

Bills over Browns - The Bills have really fallen off lately and that quick start was clearly a fluke, but I still like them against the Browns.
