FOOTBALL PICKS: WEEK 11

Record through week 10: 21-19NY Jets at New England AFC East is wide open and the Pats are looking to prove that even without Brady they are the class of the division. Brett Favre has played well enough to have the Jets above .500 but he also has thrown 12 picks through week 10. Cassel is evolving into a better quarterback each week. New England 24, N.Y. Jets 16 Chicago at Green Bay Who would’ve thought Aaron Rodgers would not only be better than his predecessor this year, but arguably the best quarterback in the league as well? Chicago has lots to celebrate with their hometown hero Barack Obama being elected our new president. Despite Kyle Orton not being healthy this week, I’ll pick the new President’s team. Chicago 28, Green Bay 27 Arizona at Seattle I can’t think of a team that has been more injury-plagued in the last few years than Seattle. They’ve still managed to eek out some wins with dual-threat Seneca Wallace taking snaps. The odd thing to me is that these NFL coaches won’t let these dual-threat guys do what their best at: scrambling the football. Maybe if Wallace was allowed to tuck and run I’d pick Seattle, but Arizona’s firepower will be too much. Arizona 31, Seattle 24 Cleveland at Buffalo My Bills rarely get the chance to be on national TV so I’m hoping they won’t blow it. This will be Brady Quinn’s second career start and the Bills are known to have very confusing defensive packages for quarterbacks to read. I expect the Bills D to carry them to this Monday night victory and for Trent Edwards to do just enough to keep the offense ahead. Buffalo 30, Cleveland 21 Tennessee at Jacksonville Jacksonville has lots of talent and has been one of the biggest disappointments in the league. Assuming they beat the Lions in week 10, maybe the Jags can make a statement by getting back to .500 against the colossal Titans. The Jags were the first in the AFC South to have a one-two punch at running back and I bet it’ll be a close battle of the stables. Jacksonville 23, Tennessee 19 Dallas at Washington Will Romo be back? Even so, I bet he’ll be rusty and lacking chemistry with Roy Williams now in the lineup. The Redskins will want this game after a tough week 9 setback against the Steelers. Clinton Portis is running like he did in Denver and he’ll lead them past the ‘Boys. Washington 27, Dallas 23
