NFL Week 11 Predictions

By Brett Malamud

This week has a lot of great matchups, especially in the later games. Here’s my week 11 predictions:

BYES: Ravens, Cowboys, Jaguars, Jets
-Bills 09 (5-4) at Dolphins 22 (5-4), FINAL on Thursday

The Dolphins took a big win that propelled them into second place in the AFC East.

-Vikings (4-5) at Bears (3-6), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

The Bears defense can make or break this game. I think that the Vikings will come out strong and take the victory. Verdict: Vikings

-Texans (4-5) at Browns (6-3), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

Good matchup here as the Texans head into Cleveland. The Browns are riding a three game winning streak and show no signs of stopping here. I think they’ll take this one in a  close game. Verdict: Browns

-Falcons (3-6) at Panthers (3-6-1), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

The Panthers have not been able to get it together. Cam Newton has thrown one touchdown pass since week seven. I think that he’ll edge out Atlanta here though Verdict: Falcons

-Bengals (5-3-1) at Saints (4-5), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

I’m taking New Orleans, no question. I think that this one could turn ugly if Drew Brees is himself. Verdict: Saints

-Buccaneers (1-8) at Redskins (3-6), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

The Bucs enter week 11 with the 29th ranked offense and defense. They will probably lose this one on the road. Verdict: Redskins

-Broncos (7-2) at Rams (3-6), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

The Broncos should win this one easily. Look for Peyton Manning to have another great game. Verdict: Broncos

-49ers (5-4) at Giants (3-6), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

The Giants have won their last two matchups with the 49ers, the first of the two coming in the NFC Championship game a few years ago. However, I’m going to go with the 49ers on the road. I think that the Giants will make it a good game though and will stay close throughout. Verdict: 49ers

-Seahawks (6-3) at Chiefs (6-3), Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

This game will be a battle of defenses. I think Russell Wilson takes over and that Marshawn Lynch runs in a pair of touchdowns.  Verdict: Seahawks

-Raiders (0-9) at Chargers (5-4), Sunday @ 4:05 PM EST

I expect the winless Raiders to stay winless this week. I just can’t see them taking down San Diego on the road. Verdict: Chargers

-Lions (7-2) at Cardinals (8-1), Sunday @ 4:25 PM EST

Another fantastic matchup here puts Calvin Johnson and the Lions against the Cardinals secondary. I think that Megatron wins here and has a huge game. Don’t doubt Larry Fitzgerald. Even with the Carson Palmer injury, Fitzgerald could have a good game. Verdict: Lions

-Eagles (7-2) at Packers (6-3), Sunday @ 4:25 PM EST

Rodgers takes on…Sanchez? A big game here sees one of the league’s top QB’s taking on the former butt-fumbler. Sanchez was good last week though. I just cannot see how he pulls one out in Lambeau though. Verdict: Packers

-Patriots (7-2) at Colts (6-3), Sunday @ 8:30 PM EST

Luck vs Brady. Now there’s a good matchup. The two QB’s will duel on national television in Lucas Oil Stadium. The Colts have the top ranked offense at the moment. I see that trend continuing this week as they take down the mighty Patriots. Verdict: Colts

-Steelers (6-4) at Titans (2-7), Monday @ 8:30 PM EST

A strange Monday Night Football matchup sees the Steelers’ 4th ranked offense going head to head with the Titans’ 31st ranked offense. This game shouldn’t be close as long as Big Ben keeps his composure. I’m taking Pittsburgh. Verdict: Steelers
