Week 11 NFL Preview
By Mike Tanchevski

A traditional rivalry, Green Bay and Minnesota, highlights week 11 of the NFL season. The return of Tony Romo in Dallas is another interesting side note, as is the continued quest for perfection in New England and Carolina.

Tennessee at Jacksonville

The Jaguars appear to be showing some life, they realize they have a shot at the playoffs by virtue of their place in the AFC South. At 2-7 Tennessee is only two games out of the division race and they have been playing well for a half. Jacksonville stays in the hunt with a win at home.

Oakland at Detroit

Oakland has a great deal of promise on offense; they can score with anybody with the Carr to Cooper tandem. Defensively they have issues, particularly run defense, they’ve allowed over 458 yards rushing over the past two weeks. Fortunately they play the Lions who can’t run the ball or do much else on offense. Oakland has too much offense for Detroit, Raiders win on the road.

Indianapolis at Atlanta

Both teams are coming off a bye week. The Falcons hope to regroup from their recent tailspin which has seen them lose three of their last four games. Indianapolis knocked off the Broncos and lost Andrew Luck in the process. He looks to be out for the next month with a lacerated kidney. That’s not good news for a team locked in a tight division race. Atlanta should get back on the winning track against the Colts.

New York Jets at Houston

Ryan Fitzpatrick looks to get the start after thumb surgery, effectiveness is a question mark. With their win at Cincinnati the Texans are in the hunt for a division title, and they are down to their third team quarterback.  Quarterback play is still the key to winning in the NFL, neither team looks to have one at the moment. Houston’s defense gets them another win.

Tampa Bay at Philadelphia

Both teams are 4-5; the Buccaneers have overachieved while the Eagles have underachieved. Tampa Bay has the makings of a pretty good team, in a few years. The Eagles have been inconsistent all season and no will rely on Mark Sanchez to keep them in the NFC East race. Tough game to pick, Philadelphia is the better team and should win at home.

Denver at Chicago

Denver is reeling after losing their second game in a row. In the process they benched Peyton Manning, who struggled to complete five passes and threw four interceptions, with a foot injury. Manning will not play at Chicago. Chicago has suddenly become the team no one wants to play. Jeremy Langford has performed well above expectations filling in for Matt Forte and Jay Cutler continues to play very well under the guidance of new offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Chicago pulls off the upset against John Fox’s old team.

Green Bay at Minnesota

After Green Bay’s three-game skid the Vikings find themselves with a one game lead in the division race. The last time Minnesota won the division was 2009, Brett Favre was the quarterback.  Green Bay has hit rock bottom, losing to Detroit at home for the first time since 1991. The Vikings rely on the legs of Adrian Peterson and an aggressive defense, while Rodgers tries to make the most of the limited offensive talent at his disposal. Minnesota wins and strengthens its hold on the division.

St. Louis at Baltimore

Case Keenum will replace the ineffective Nick Foles at quarterback for St Louis against the Ravens. Foles was benched following the Rams 24 point loss to the Bears. Not even their defense could prevent Chicago’s onslaught. Baltimore founds new ways to lose every week and it seems to be taking a toll on all parties. The Ravens have not defeated an NFC team this season, it won’t happen Sunday either.

Dallas at Miami

Romo is back! That’s music to the ears of fans and players alike in Dallas. The Cowboys started the season 2-0 and lost seven straight when their signal caller went out with a fractured collar bone. Their dysfunction and lack of leadership has been well documented. Miami rallied to beat the Eagles 20-19 last weekend, despite the win the Dolphins continue to be inconsistent from week to week. Dallas is the underdog but their defense has been solid and I look for Romo to give them the spark they need on offense. Dallas stays in the NFC East race with the win.

Washington at Carolina

Carolina continues to play with a chip on their shoulder and a swagger in their step. The Panthers have won 13 consecutive regular season games. The Panthers continue to play solid defense and run the ball on their way down victory road. Washington continues their mercurial season; following a horrible loss at New England the Redskins defeated New Orleans 47-14. When Cousins and the running game are clicking Washington has a chance; too bad Carolina has such a fine defense. The Panthers remain unbeaten with another win at home.

Cincinnati at Arizona

The Bengals have a lot to prove in this game after an ineffective performance against Houston, which handed them their first loss of the season. Former Bengal Carson Palmer is having an MVP season for Arizona. He has thrown for more than 350 yards in four times in the last six weeks. Cincinnati must eliminate mistakes and mental errors in order to avoid a two-game skid. The Cardinals’ defense coupled with Palmer’s motivation will be too much for the Bengals to overcome.

San Francisco at Seattle

Both squads are in the midst of disappointing seasons and are looking for offensive identity. Seattle’s offensive line issues have negated the impact of Marshawn Lynch and Russell Wilson. The Seahawks haven’t been able to establish an offensive identity. The 49ers’ offensive problems are worse, quarterback Blaine Gabbert, Kaepernick’s replacement, has been more productive than his predecessor but scoring points is still a problem. Seattle’s defense is still very good and that’s what will ultimately help them win the game

Kansas City at San Diego

Kansas City seems to have overcome their early season woes as they continue to claw their way to respectability. With their win over the Broncos last weekend the Chiefs have won three consecutive games. Their defense has limited opponents to 14 points per game. San Diego is fresh off a bye week and hopes to end a five game skid. San Diego has relied on the arm of Philip Rivers all season; he needs help from the ground game for the Chargers to have any long term success. Kansas City continues to win on the road.

Buffalo at New England

Buffalo is 1-12 all-time at Gillette Stadium and four games behind the division leading Patriots. The Bills lost the first meeting this season 40-32 and their fortunes took a turn for the worse. This matchup has a different New England team waiting to face the Bills. Brady, Belichick and Gronkowski are still there, unfortunately Julian Edelman, Dion Lewis and Nate Solder are all on the disabled list. Despite New England’s depleted squad, Buffalo’s chances are still slime if they are unable to get pressure on Brady. Despite their losses the Patriots will find a way to get to 10-0.
