The Week 11 NFL Schedule kicks off Thursday night with the Tennessee Titans hosting the Indianapolis Colts. That means it is time for the Week 11 picks against the spread. Our man Jesse is MIA today, so yours truly will step in and make this week's picks. A word of warning -- I am awful at this.
Indianapolis Colts (-3) at Tennessee Titans. This is simple. I can't pick against Andrew Luck here. Pick: Colts
New York Jets at Buffalo Bills (-1). The Jets have Ed Reed now, you might just as well punch their Super Bowl ticket. Seriously, though, this is a weird game between two difficult to gauge teams. When the Jets (5-4) play well they are better than the 3-7 Bills. Pick: Jets
Baltimore Ravens at Chicago Bears (-3). The defending champion Ravens are 4-5 and trying to remain in the playoff race. Josh McCown will be quarterbacking the Bears again this week dur to Jay Cutler's high ankle sprain. Pick: Ravens
Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals (-6). The Bengals have lost two straight close games to the Miami Dolphins and to the Ravens. The Browns had a Week 10 bye after beating the Ravens in Week 9. I think six is too many points. Pick: Browns
Oakland Raiders at Houston Texans (-7). Coach Gary Kubiak will be back on the sidelines, an emotional lift for Houston. We saw last week against the Giants that the Raiders can't do much offensively unless Terrelle Pryor does it with his legs. Pick: Texans
Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles (-3.5). I am still not buying what the Eagles are selling this season, and I can't stop thinking about the Redskins coming from 3-6 to win the division a season ago. Pick: Redskins
San Diego Chargers (-1.5) at Miami Dolphins. The Richie Incognito scandal has destroyed the Dolphins, and I don't believe they will recover this season. Pick: Chargers
