Week 11 picks!!

Posted: November 16, 2011 by djplaymaker in NFL

I know all my NFL fans enjoyed last week’s adventures. We still have the Packers still undefeated & the Colts still winless. However, we saw things like the 49ers getting a credible win vs the Giants, the injury bug hitting both Kansas City & Houston as both Schaub & Cassel done for the yr & Desean Jackson being benched for missing a special teams meeting. I hope this week has some more surprises. Before I start, I would to say that I was surprised about the Velasquez/ Dos Santos outcome. That was a quick fight & my thoughts of Pacman/Marquez 3: I had Pacman by decision, but I think it was a close fight & would say a 4th fight. Let’s get the picks started shall we.

Thursday

N.Y. Jets vs Denver- The Jets are coming off the beatdown they got @ home by the Pats. Mark Sanchez was pressured the whole night, being sacked 6 times (3 of them courtesy of Andre Carter) & threw 2 costly ints. New York media were either blaming him or Brian Schottenheimer for the loss. The Broncos came out w/ an upset win in Kansas City, making the afc west division wide. I know people, including myself are Tebow-bashing, but he’s 3-1 since being named the starter. Both qb’s are pretty much bashed a lot whether in the social or the media. It will come to which qb leads his team to points. The Jets are 4.5 road faves.

Playmaker: Me rooting for Tebow? C’MON SON!! I gotta ride w/ the Havana gf’s team. Jets & I take the under

Sunday

Tennessee vs Atlanta- The Titans are coming off an impressive win in Carolina in which Chris Johnson finally start to show signs that he was worth the money while the Falcons, especially Mike Smith are answering questions about questionable playcalling (going for it on 4th & inches in OT) in their home loss vs New Orleans. Both teams are still in the thick of things in their respective divisons. It’ll probably come down to which running back dominates their performance between Johnson & Michael Turner. The Falcons are 5.5 home faves.

Playmaker- I like the Falcons to bounce back from this loss. Take the under

Noez:

Randy: Titans

Cincinnati vs Baltimore- The Bengals failed the test to kick the Steelers after their Baltimore loss by letting the Steelers like they usually do while the Ravens had another post-Steelers win brain fart by losing in Seattle. I know that you don’t which Ravens are going to get week by week. This is their 1st match-up in the AFC north head to head this yr. The Ravens are 7 pt home faves

Playmaker- I like the Ravens @ home, however kinda nervous about this pick & spread. Cover the spread

Noez:

Randy:

Jacksonville vs Cleveland- The Jags are coming off a 7 pt win in Indy while my Browns found the stupidest way to lose a game when Alex Mack’s foot hits the ball, resulting in a bobbled snap & Phil Dawson missing a chipshot fg to win the game. Colt McCoy played a good game & Chris O. worked his way for yards, but Pat Shumur was very consertative w/ his playcalling, especially in the red zone. They were 0-4 in that area. I bet you that “Pussyboy” Hillis won’t play this game either. The Jags are 1 pt road faves.

Playmaker: We gotta win this game. Greg Little showed his potential last game & Chris O, McCoy & co showed more heart out there than Hillis. Take the over also.

Noez:

Randy:

Carolina vs Detroit- The Panthers were manhandled @ home vs the Titans while the Bears reminded the Lions why “they are who thought they were” by punking in every way they could. Strafford throwing 4 ints & suh popping off in the papers saying “we have his back when players attack him” like that Bears cornerback did. This will be an Auburn reunion for Nick Fairley & Cam Newton also. Expect a lot of excitement in this game. The Lions are touchdown faves at home.

Playmaker: I see Cam running for his life in this game. I like the Lions to win & cover the spread

Noez:

Randy:

Tampa Bay vs Green Bay- The Packers are still flying high after their performance on Monday night vs the Vikings. Aaron Rodgers aka “The Real A-Rod” is playing like he wants another ring as well as the MVP award. The bucs were punked @ home vs the Texans. The Packers are 14.5 home faves.

Playmaker- I like the Packers, but I hope they don’t look ahead to the thanksgiving game vs Detroit, making this a trap game. Take the under for some reason

Noez:

Randy:

Buffalo vs Miami- The Dolphins are starting to find momentum after getting their 2nd win of the season vs the Redskins while the Bills were just punked in Dallas. Bright moment of that game was Schroder giving the ball to his girlfriend after he scored. This use to be my favorite AFC East match-up in the early 90’s. Like they say, divisional battles are very good, regardless the records of the teams. The Dolphins are 2 pt home faves.

Playmaker: This is a tough pick for me. I Know the Bills usually struggle whenever they are in Miami, however I’m taking my chances on them. I like the Bills to win & go over the spread

Noez:

Randy:

Oakland vs Minnesota- The Raiders continued their 2 yr dominance on the Chargers last week w/ their win while the Vikings pretty much didn’t show up in Green Bay, except for Jared Allen, who continued his dominance of sacking Aaron Rodgers. The Raiders won’t have McFadden again, so expect a lot of Michael bush along w/ Moore catching passes from Carson Palmer. Raider Nation are 1.5 faves on the Road.

Playmaker- I like the Raiders to win & go over the spread

Noez:

Randy:

Dallas vs Washington- The Cowboys, especially tony Romo just went H.A.M. on the Bills while the Redskins layed an egg in South Beach. No one knew that Rex Grossman was gonna start that game & throw 2 ints in that game. It’s a divisional battle & last time they met, it was on a Monday night & the Cowboys won that game, despite not scoring a td in that game. The Cowboys are 7.5 td road faves.

Playmaker: I like the Cowboys to win & cover the spread (I hope this put a smile on your face Letty Bear)

Noez:

Randy:

Seattle vs St. Louis- Both teams are coming off wins. The Rams went into Cleveland & Steven Jackson was playing like a beast while the seahawks were the next team to give the Ravens another Post- Steelers hangover by beating them. Marshawn Lynch pretty much put the team on his back. This is a divisional battle, so expect a lot from both teams. The Rams are 2 pt home faves.

Playmaker- I sense a Seahawks letdown after a big win. I take the Rams & the over

Noez:

Randy:

Arizona vs San Francisco- Question: Who’s 8-1? If you were living the San Francisco bay Area & thought that before the season start, the 49ers would have this record at this point, you’ll be lying to yourselves. However, Harbaugh has turned this team around & they proved to the league they deserve respect after putting the clamps on an Eli Manning comeback to beat the Giants. The Cards were the 5th team to come back to beat the Eagles when they had the lead in the 4th qtr. It’s a divisional battle, so expect a lot. I hope the 49ers don’t look ahead to the “Harbaugh Bowl” on thanksgiving to make this a trap game. The 49ers are 9.5 home faves.

Playmaker: I’m sipping on that Niners Kool-aid, however, like I said, don’t look ahead. 49ers to win & take the under

Noez:

Randy:

San Diego vs Chicago- The Bears popped the Lions in da mouth last week while Phillp Rivers & the Chargers had no answer for the Raiders last week. The only reason I’m excited for this match-up is because I get to see Cutler vs Rivers. Both qb’s seem to have words for each other since those Chargers/Broncos match-ups. Question for the Chargers special teams: do you kick the ball to Devin Hester? The Bears are 3.5 home faves.

Playmaker: It’s gonna be a cold weather game. I like the Bears to win & go over the spread

Noez:

Randy:

Philadelphia vs N.Y. Giants- Both teams are coming off losses. The Eagles had to deal w/ blowing a 4th qtr lead, losing both their stud receivers w/ D Jax benched for missing a special teams meeting while Macklin suffered an injury. Also, Vick suffered cracked ribs & is uncertain for this game. The Giants were just in a dogfight in San Francisco. It’s a divisional battle & the Giants already struck 1st blood by popping them in philly in the 1st match-up. In that same game, Victor Cruz was introduced to the NFL. The Giants are 3.5 home faves.

Playmaker- Regardless of whether it’s Vick or Vince Young starting that game, I don’t like their chances. G. Men & cover the spread

Noez:

Randy:

Monday

Kansas City vs New England- The Pats responded to the NFL world like they usually do after a loss by popping the Jets in their mouth, taking the head to head series this yr, thus giving them the tiebreaker. The Chiefs had to deal w/ not only losing to Tebow & the Broncos @ home, but also having the injury bug hit them again as they lose Cassel for the season. I wonder @ which point the injury bug’s gonna hit Dwayne bowe (sorry Steve, but your team is cursed this yr). The Pats are 14.5 home faves.

Playmaker- Pats & take the Over

Randy:

Last week, Noez took the lead dawg position w/ an 11-5 record, rookie Randy right behind him w/ a 10-6 & yours truly riding the bunker w/ 6-10. I’m ready for a bounce back week. Happy b-day shout outs to Lindsay Locke, Jennifer O’ Neil, robin Rodriguez & last but not least, “my lil sis” Dez Clairborne. Also Happy anniversary to you & your husband Chris also. Til then, I’m out & screw Billy Hunter, David Stern & the NBA for putting the average b-ball fan like myself through more hell w/ more cancelations of games, making this season in jeopardy.
