NFL Week 11 preview
Going into week 11 of the 2007 NFL season we’ve had a lot of surprises. Who would’ve thought that the Packers and the Lions would be leading the NFC north?? Who saw the Browns coming?? What happened to the Bears, Jets and LoL, the Colts?? They have lost two in a row for the first time in who knows how long. So I’ll stop rambling, heres my week 11 picks.
Cards at Bengals
The Cards are coming off a big victory over the Lions last week and believe it or not they are only one game out first place in the NFC west. The Bengals are having a disappointing season, they are 3-6 and last in their division. The Bengals also have a lot of injuries to deal with. The Cards will come up big and get the win on the road.
Browns at Ravens
The Browns and the Ravens are both coming off tough loses but these two teams are going in opposite directions. The Ravens hope that a change at quarterback will help jumpstart their offense which is currently ranked 28th in the NFL in scoring will only 15.3 points a game. Kyle Boller is not the answer and he will prove that this weekend.
Bucs at Falcons
The Bucs have had a decent year considering everything and right now they are currently in first place of the NFC south. Watch out for the Falcons though, despite being 3-6 and head coach Bobby Petrino seeming like he has no control over the team, they are still in the playoff race in the NFC. Wow.. LoL but they won’t win this week.
Giants at Lions
This is a crucial game for both teams. Both teams came off loses, both are 6-3 and both are looking to get good seeding when the playoffs come around. The big key to this game though is the Giants defensive line vs the offensive line for the Lions. The Lions have a lot of guys that are banged up and their o-line is not playing well now and everyone knows how the Giants get after people. Look for it to be a long day for Jon Kitna.
Dolphins at Eagles
So the Dolphins are still looking for their first win of the season. They finally decided to play for the future and bring John Beck in. It’s tough though because he will be making his NFL debut in front of a hostile Philadelphia crowd. The Eagles will take this one and continue the Dolphins losing streak.
Raiders at Vikings
The Vikings will be without rookie sensation Adrian Peterson for this one but they won’t need him. Chester Taylor will pick up the slack against the worst rushing defense in the league. This will be a low scoring game but expect the Vikings to come out on top.
Chargers at Jags
The Chargers are coming off a tough win against the Colts at home and now they are traveling to Jacksonville to take on the Jags and their defense. The key matchup here will be LaDainian Tomlinson against the Jags second ranked run defense. Philip Rivers will need to come up with a big game but I don’t see it happening. Look for the Jags D to come back and for the whole team to rally around the return of their quarterback David Garrard.
Chiefs at Colts
The Colts have lost two straight games, Peyton Manning threw 6 picks last week and they are riddled with injuries. For all of these reasons, the Colts will come up huge in this one. Peyton is going to have his way with the Chiefs defense.
Saints at Texans
Two weeks ago the Saints looked like they had revived their season winning 4 in a row, then last week they lost to the Rams at home. Come on!! They will come back though and take this game over Houston. The Texans secondary hasn’t faired very well and without their number 1 cornerback, Daunte Robinson who is out for the rest of the season due to a torn ACL, they will have a tough time against Drew Brees.
Panthers at Green Bay
The Panthers have lost three games in a row and have a revolving door at quarterback. Vinnie Testaverde will be calling the shots this weekend but it won’t be enough. The Packers number 1 passing offense will do it again this week.
Steelers at Jets
It’s been a very disappointing year for the Jets and it won’t get any easier this week. Ben Roethlisberger is playing great football right now and they will roll in this one.
Bears at Seahawks
Cedric Benson is only averaging 3.2 yard per carry and Rex Grossman will be starting for quarterback. Don’t think that this is a going to be a new beginning for Grossman. He will probably get 2 picks before Lovie Smith pulls him but by that time it will be too late.
Rams at 49ers
This is going to be a bad game but if the Rams can bring it together like they did last week with all their weapons on offense, they will win it.
Redskins at Cowboys
This year the Cowboys have emerged as one of the top tier NFC teams. Tony Romo and Terrell Owens are clicking on all cylinders. On the other side of the ball, Clinton Portis is having a solid season and even blessed us enough to break out the old costume routine. I love it!
The Skins will lose though.
Patriots at Bills
The Bills have been playing great lately. They are one of the hottest teams in the NFL. The Patriots are the Patriots though.
Titans at Broncos
Whenever you mention the Titans you have to metion Vince Young but I wont this time. The Titans defense and running game will be what wins this game for them.
