NFL Week 11 Pick Results

Winning team in bold.

Unanimous Picks (9-3)


Cardinals @ Jaguars
Colts @ Titans
Browns @ Bengals
Redskins @ Eagles
Ravens @ Bears
Vikings @ Seahawks
49ers @ Saints
Chiefs @ Broncos
Patroits @ Panthers


Raiders @ Texans
A lot of the blame for the Texans' problems has focused on their quarterback situation (and it wasn't any better in this game, Case Keenum got benched for Matt Schaub). But for a team that supposedly has a good defense, it wasn't much in evidence in this game. First time starter Matt McGloin threw for 197 yards and 3 touchdowns, Rashad Jennings ran for 150 yards, and the Texans are left looking for scapegoats.
Lions @ Steelers
The Lions' defense just had an awful game, giving up 367 yards passing and 4 touchdowns, no turnovers and just one sack. The Lions 27-point 2nd quarter gave them a half time lead, but they didn't score any points after that, and it wasn't enough to last through the end of the game.
Chargers @ Dolphins
This was a close game against a couple of pretty inconsistent teams. One thing that stands out to me is inability of the Chargers to score points. They join the Browns as the only team (so far) not to score at least 20 points on the Dolphins. The Chargers' offense generates a lot of yards (including 435 in this game), but they don't seem to be converting them into the points they need to win.

Split Picks: (APR 0-3, SRS 2-1, Line 1-2)

Jets (APR, Line) @ Bills (SRS)
Wow, the Jets really do stink on the road. Geno Smith threw 3 interceptions, lost a fumble, and was sacked 4 times. I know home field advantage is a real thing, but this is ridiculous.
Packers (APR, SRS) @ Giants (Line)
Scott Tolzien did pretty okay, but three interceptions, including a game-breaking pick 6 in the 4th quarter, were just more than the Packers could overcome.
Falcons (APR, Line) @ Buccaneers (SRS)
The Buccaneers are really not as bad as their 8-loss record, but I think the Falcons are a team that has just given up on their season. They played a lot better than this earlier in the season.


At least the unanimous picks went well this week. And SRS has almost caught up to the Line!

APR 9- 6 82-6456.2%
SRS 11- 4 88-5860.3%
Line 10- 5 90-5661.6%
