NFL Picks Week 11: The Way It Is

After a bitter, streak-ending loss to rival San Francisco, the Saints look to rebound in a big way at home against Cincinnati . We take a look at this game and all the rest of Week 11.

Andy Lyons

Despite standing below .500, the New Orleans Saints remain in first place in the laughingstock NFC South.  With a heartbreaking home loss now in the rearview mirror, the Saints look toward their next challenge, and a chance at a fresh start, against the Cincinnati Bengals.  The Bengals defense is just what the Saints need after last week's contest.  Now let's take a look at all of the Week 11 action and see if it has the potential to be as unpredictable as last week.

Last week I went 8-5

I told you so: Chiefs over Bills!

What do I know: Bengals over Browns?


Thursday, November 13th

Bills(5-4) at Dolphins(5-4)

Buffalo picks up a pivotal divisional win on the road in Miami.

Pick: Bills


Sunday, November 16th - Early Games

Vikings(4-5) at Bears(3-6)

Teddy Bridgewater will lead Minnesota to victory in the closing seconds over the reeling Bears in Chicago.

Pick: Vikings


Texans(4-5) at Browns(6-3)

The surging Browns pick up another win in snowy Cleveland.

Pick: Browns


Falcons(3-6) at Panthers(3-6-1)

#savesmitty stays alive with a win in Carolina.

Pick: Falcons


Buccaneers(1-8) at Redskins(3-6)

Alfred Morris should have little trouble picking up his first 100 yard rushing game of the season in this one.

Pick: Redskins


Broncos(7-2) at Rams(3-6)

Denver continues to beat the teams they're supposed to beat.

Pick: Broncos


49ers(5-4) at Giants(3-6)

Just as Jim Harbaugh owns Sean Payton, so too does Tom Coughlin own Jim Harbaugh.  Giants get a big upset at home.

Pick: Giants


Seahawks(6-3) at Chiefs(6-3)

Kansas City stuns Seattle with a huge win at home behind a rabid Arrowhead Stadium crowd.  This game is likely to feature 300-plus rushing yards combined.

Pick: Chiefs


Bengals(5-3-1) at Saints(4-5)

Even with Patrick Robinson and Corey White potentially starting at cornerback, Andy Dalton and Cincy may be in for a long day.  The Bengals are awful on the road, the Saints are "pretty good" at home, connect the dots folks.  AJ Green will get his, but the Saints should be in command in the Superdome.

Pick: Saints


Sunday, November 16th - Late Games

Raiders(0-9) at Chargers(5-4)

Oakland's losing ways continue in San Diego.

Patriots(7-2) at Colts(6-3) - Game of the Week

Andrew Luck finally gets New England at home and that will make a world of difference.  Indy wins 30-28.

Steelers(6-4) at Titans(2-7)

Did Pittsburgh actually lose to both Tampa and the Jets this year? What the hell?!!!
