Welcome to Week 11 of the NFL season and things are heating up with teams with teams are either vying for a playoff position, fighting for a better seed or just trying to finish the season on a positive note. After a dismal showing last week, I could use anything positive now because my record was 1-4, dropping my overall record to 31-27. My winning percentage drops from 56.6% to 53.5%. This week I’ll be predicting four games with hopes of not having a losing record. Let’s Get Started!!!
This is the Thursday night game between a couple of teams that’s in the running for the #1 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft as the Tennessee Titans visit the Jacksonville Jaguars. Even though the Titans record is 2-7, I still see potential in this team in the next couple of years with Marcus Mariota leading them and their defense has showed signs of being really good. On the other hand, the Jaguars have also showed potential with some pretty good talent on the offensive side of the ball. It’s crazy, despite their 3-6 record they’re still a game out of first place and I believe they will win this game.
Jaguars Win 24-21
This is a battle for first place in the NFC North division as the Green Bay Packers visit the first place, Minnesota Vikings. The Packers has struggled mightily the last three games and I would’ve never thought an Aaron Rodgers lead Packers team would be on a three game losing streak. Can Rodgers pull it together and find a way to guide the Packers to the win before their season get out of control? The Minnesota Vikings are on a five game winning streak and have looked great with Adrian Peterson busting out for a 200 yard rushing game last week. I’m going with the Packers to rebound!!
Packers Win 28-27
This is probably the game of the week and still to some a potential Super Bowl match-up as the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Arizona Cardinals. The Bengals are coming off their first loss of the season last Monday night against the Texans. The Bengal offense looked out of sync, horrible and didn’t look like themselves and they need to rebound quickly against a tough Cardinals team. The Cardinals are coming off a tough win in Seattle last week and they’re in the midst of a three game winning streak. QB Carson Palmer gets to play against his old team and will be motivated by it and will lead them to the win.
Cardinals Win 25-24
This is the Monday Night game and a battle of AFC East teams as the Buffalo Bills visit the undefeated New England Patriots. The Bills have won their last two games, which were against the other division teams. If the playoffs started today, the Bills would have the second Wild Card spot and they own the tiebreaker over the Jets with their win over them last week. The New England Patriots are coming off their toughest game in a last second win over the Giants. The Patriots have pretty much owned the Bills over the years and I believe they will beat them on Monday night.
Patriots Win 34-21
My Top 5 Teams in the League:
1) New England Patriots
2) Carolina Panthers
3) Arizona Cardinals
4) Cincinnati Bengals
5) Minnesota Vikings
