I went 7-7 last week. That puts me at 79-65 for the season. For a comparison, check out the “experts” over at ESPN.

Here are my picks for the NFL’s Week 11:


Chicago at Miami – 8:20 PM [Miami by 1.5]

Tough game to pick. I expect a low-scoring contest.

RJ’s Pick: Chicago by 3



Buffalo at Cincinnati – 1:00 PM [Cincinnati by 5.5]

The Bills are no longer winless, while the Bengals have dropped six straight. Cedric Benson should have a big game, but I think the Bills will manage to keep the score close.

RJ’s Pick: Cincinnati by 2


Detroit at Dallas – 1:00 PM [Dallas by 6.5]

The Lions are the only team in the NFC with a losing record to have scored more points than they’ve allowed.

RJ’s Pick: Detroit by 1


Washington at Tennessee – 1:00 PM [Tennessee by 7]

The Redskins have lost three of their last four and have allowed 96 points in their last two games.

RJ’s Pick: Tennessee by 12


Arizona at Kansas City – 1:00 PM [Kansas City by 7.5]

Arizona has lost four in a row. Kansas City is undefeated at home.

RJ’s Pick: Kansas City by 13


Green Bay at Minnesota – 1:00 PM [Green Bay by 3]

This is Brett Favre’s last chance to show that coming back for this otherwise dismal season was at least somewhat worthwhile.

RJ’s Pick: Minnesota by 4


Houston at New York Jets – 1:00 PM [Jets by 7]

The Texans are in free fall. The Jets have allowed the fewest points in the AFC.

RJ’s Pick: Jets by 14


Oakland at Pittsburgh – 1:00 PM [Pittsburgh by 7.5]

The Raiders have won three straight.

RJ’s Pick: Pittsburgh by 3


Baltimore at Carolina – 1:00 PM [Baltimore by 10]

Carolina is simply the worst team in the NFL.

RJ’s Pick: Baltimore by 14


Cleveland at Jacksonville – 1:00 PM [Jacksonville by 1.5]

Jacksonville has won two in a row. Cleveland has won two of its last three, all against good teams, and nearly played the Jets to a tie in OT last week.

RJ’s Pick: Cleveland by 5


Tampa Bay at San Francisco – 4:05 PM [San Francisco by 3]

The 49ers have won two straight and are 3-2 at home this season.

RJ’s Pick: San Francisco by 6


Seattle at New Orleans – 4:05 PM [New Orleans by 11.5]

Seattle’s anemic offense, plus the outstanding defense of the Saints and the likely return of Reggie Bush equal a blowout for the Super Bowl champs.

RJ’s Pick: New Orleans by 17


Atlanta at Saint Louis – 4:05 PM [Atlanta by 3]

The Falcons have the best record in the NFC. The Rams are 4-1 at home. This is a classic “trap game” for the Falcons, who may be caught looking ahead to next week’s big matchup with the Packers.

RJ’s Pick: Rams by 1


AFC’s Game Of The Week: Indianapolis at New England – 4:15 PM [New England by 3]

New England is undefeated at home, while the Colts are 2-3 on the road.

RJ’s Pick: New England by 7


NFC’s Game Of The Week: New York Giants at Philadelphia – 8:20 PM [Philadelphia by 3]

The winner of this one will sit alone atop the NFC East. Michael Vick’s stats so far this season: 11 passing TDs, 0 INTs, 115.1 QB rating, 341 rushing yards, 4 rushing TDs, and 0 fumbles lost. And he’s only played in 6 games. Geez.

RJ’s Pick: Philadelphia by 8



Denver at San Diego – 8:30 PM [San Diego by 10]

Expect a ton of points to be scored in this one. And expect the Chargers to end up with quite a few more on the scoreboard than the Broncos.

RJ’s Pick: San Diego by 18

    Happy Thanksgiving, RJ!
