NFL PIcks week 11
Friday, November 17, 2017
Coming off another undefeated week 10 we hope for more winners as the playoff picture becomes more clear in the NFL.
Rams +3 at Vikings: This is the game of the week!! Who would have thought both teams would be sitting at 7-2 and in first place in their respective division. The winner of this game will have a huge leg up in the NFC. It's a tough call but I believe the Rams are the slightly more dangerous team. Let's remember last year after drafting Jared Goff first overall the Rams began the year with Case Keenum as their starting quarterback. They made the change to Goff and he has become an elite quarterback in just his 2nd season. Now the two go toe to toe and if Keenum struggles he will once again be replaced this time by Teddy Bridgewater. In a tight game I lean with the team I see as slightly better getting 3 points. Pick: Rams
Bengals +2 at Broncos: Two teams that have had miserable seasons. The Broncos are forced to stick with Brock Osweiler at quarterback which is not a good look. Both teams are 3-6 but it should be noted the Broncos looked to have a good team until the roof caved in a month ago. The last three weeks they have lost to Chiefs, Eagles and Patriots, all elite 2017 teams. They take a huge step down in competition this week. Denver gave away last weeks game to New England with awful special teams. They won't give the Bengals the same gifts. Pick: Broncos
Ravens -2 at Packers: It's tough to back an average team on the road at Green Bay but the Ravens possess a solid defence that should give Brett Hundley fits. The Packers were 6 point underdogs last week to Chicago and got very lucky John Fox made a stupid challenge which cost the Bears a touchdown and gave Green Bay the ball. The Ravens have been losing very tight games on the road to far superior teams so taking a step down against a below average quarterback should be just what Baltimore needs to get a road win. Pick: Ravens
