Week 11 Games

TB (4-5) @ WAS (2-7) – Buccs

BAL (6-3) @ PIT (4-5) – Ravens

A big game this week in the AFC north as the reigning SuperBowl champs take on rivals the Steelers. It’s been a tough few weeks for the champs as they’ve gone on a 3 game losing streak after declaring the 16-0 was on. The Steelers will look to tighten up the division and get back to .500 on the season. With big ben having one of the best completion rates in the league, the Steelers will be looking to big ben, Bell and JJ Nelson to get after an excellent defence in the Ravens. The ravens however will be looking to their usual go to man in Perriman to come up with a bomb or two, or three.

Steelers will need to keep turnovers to a minimum if they want to beat the Ravens but I think that’ll be too much for Big ben and he’ll throw a minimum of two picks and the ravens will win a close one.

OAK (2-7) @ NYJ (1-8) – Raiders

ARI (0-9) @ SEA (5-4) – Seahawks

NE (6-3) @ KC (2-7) – Chiefs (hopefully)

A game that will be a lot closer than current records suggest. The Chiefs lost a close one last week to the Miami Dolphins and the Patriots suffered a heart breaking loss to the Chargers and as I look at the stats I don’t quite understand how as the Chargers amassed a total of only 157 off yards the entire game with a chunk of that coming on the final play. Ultimately turnovers cost the Pats the game as Jimmy G and co lost the ball three times. This week will be a high scoring shootout with Alex smith and jimmy G matching each other in tds but will ultimately come down to turnovers again. Whichever team is able to limit these to the minimum will come out on top, and hopefully it’s the Chiefs. Sorry James

HOU (3-6) @ LA (3-6) – Rams

DAL (6-3) @ DEN (4-5) – Cowboys

TEN (1-8) @ SF (7-2) – 49ers

NO (5-4) @ CHI (5-4) – Saints

An interesting game here between two good sides. The Saints will look to continue their balanced attack in the air and on the ground, the Bears will need to try and get some resemblance of a run game going if they are to beat the saints at home. A win for either team will look to bolster their chances of making the OOH playoffs however a loss for either team will leave them with a bit of work to do if they want to catch their respective divisional leaders. This one will be close but the Saints more balanced offence will give them the edge over pass heavy Chicago. A close win for the Saints here.

IND (7-2) @ CIN (4-5)- Colts

CAR (5-4) @ MIA (6-3) – Tie
