Week 11: As we get into the latter half of the season, some teams are beginning to pull away. As the playoffs draw closer, the games start to grow in importance. This week look for some great games as well as some huge divisional battles.
The Game Of The Week
Indianapolis at Cincinnati – The Colts will get a real big challenge from the up and coming Bengals. It will be a very tight and close game but Cincinnati is too young and inexperienced and will fold under the pressure as the Colts win again.
The Best Of The Rest
Philadelphia at NY Giants – The team that was picked to win the division, the Eagles, against the team that is running away with the division, the Giants. This is a must win game for Philadelphia but it will not happen in New York. The Giants will win this physical battle.
Arizona at St. Louis – The Rams are one of the most powerful offensive teams in the NFL. The Cardinals will not be able to stop them on the fast turf. St. Louis will run wild and win big.
New Orleans at New England – The Patriots should have no problem winning against the shaky Saints. Until they find a permanent home, it looks like the Saints downward spiral will continue.
Oakland at Washington – This will be the classic defense versus offense battle, and as they say defense win championships. This game will be no different as the Redskins rely on their defense to win.
Pittsburgh at Baltimore – The Steelers will have a lot more trouble with the Ravens than most people expect. They will score just enough to win this game at the wire.
Jacksonville at Tennessee – This is a game of two teams that have been the epitome of inconsistency this season. The Jaguars have more talent and more to play for so they will come out charged up and win this game.
Tampa Bay at Atlanta – The Buccaneers have been on a downward spiral of late. Going into Atlanta will not help. The Falcons will dominate this game and come out with the big game.
Carolina at Chicago – Both teams have played very well recently. The Bears have taken control of the NFC North and the Panthers are in a battle for the lead in the NFC South. The Bears will not have enough to stay with the Panthers as they lose a very close game.
Miami at Cleveland – The Dolphins have a dominating running attack and as long as they don’t turn the ball over, they have a chance to win. But because it is in Cleveland, the Browns will have the edge and get the win.
Detroit at Dallas – The Cowboys have been one of the biggest surprises of the season. Their dominance of opponents will continue against the Lions. This game will not be close.
Seattle at San Francisco – The 49ers have been plagued by injuries and turnovers this season. Seattle is another tough test that they will not pass. The Seahawks are too skilled and will win this game big.
Buffalo at San Diego – The best player in football, LaDainian Tomlinson, is carrying the Chargers all by himself. He scores in every possible way and will continue to dominate against the Bills as San Diego gets the victory.
NY Jets at Denver – The Jets have been having problems keeping anyone behind center healthy. On the other side of the ball the Broncos have one of the most unexpected stars in QW Jake Plummer. “The Snake” will lead Denver to the victory.
Minnesota at Green Bay – This is a game that many thought would be for the division lead instead it is a battle for the basement in the NFC North. Both teams are making way too many mistakes. But it is in Green Bay and they will win behind QB Brett Favre.
Kansas City at Houston – The Chiefs should have no problem with the Texans. But this is the NFL and anything can happen. With the game in Houston the Texans will muster enough to knock off Kansas City.
Overall Record 65-33
