Time is already running out for some teams if they want to make a push for a play off place. That means that week 11 is crunch time which should result in some good games. Most are hard to predict but that won’t stop me trying!
Here are my NFL 2020 Week Eleven Predictions:
Arizona Cardinals @ Seattle Seahawks
What a way to start Week 11 as NFC West rivals the Cardinals visit the Seahawks. Both sides are sitting 6-3 going into this game and both will be desperate to push on and win this division. The Cardinals are looking better going into this after a tough win over the Bills last week. The Seahawks meanwhile lost to the other challenger on this division, the Rams. There will be plenty of points on the board here and I am going for the Seahawks to edge it.
Cardinals 32 Seahawks 36
Pittsburgh Steelers @Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jaguars have lost 8 straight while the Steelers have won all 9 of their games so far. We know by now that nothing is guaranteed in NFL match ups but this is as close as it gets.
Steelers 37 Jaguars 10
Detroit Lions @ Carolina Panthers
The Panthers gave up 46 points to the Buccaneers last week to make it a 5 game losing streak. The Lions did just enough to get past Washington. They can still get something out of this season while the Panthers look finished already. That will give Detroit the extra motivation here.
Lions 24 Panthers 20
New England Patriots @ Houston Texans
The Patriots continue to be a tough call this year, highlighted by a surprise win over the Ravens last week. The Texans are a bit easier to judge having lost 7 out of their 9 games this season. Last week they only managed 7 points against the Browns. The Patriots should make it 3 wins in a row here.
Patriots 21 Texans 10
Tennessee Titans @ Baltimore Ravens
Both of these teams star quarterbacks have gone off the boil since an exciting start to the season. Ryan Tannehill probably more so than Lamar Jackson but it is having a big impact on these teams chances. Both are sitting 6-3 and in a good position overall but the concern is that unless they pick up, they won’t go very deep into the play offs. For me, the Ravens still have the bigger weapons and should win this.
Titans 27 Ravens 30
Philadelphia Eagles @ Cleveland Browns
The Browns were back to winning ways last week against Houston, but only just. The weather conditions played their part in a tight 10-7 win to put the Browns 6-3 for the season. The Eagles have blown hot and cold so far this year and even at 3-5, still sit at the top of NFC East. The Browns have looked the better of these two teams in recent weeks and I fancy them to grind out the win.
Eagles 21 Browns 29
Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints
With Drew Brees injured, the Saints defense is going to have to continue to play to the high standard they showed in the past 2 weeks if they want to continue their impressive win streak. It will be tough against a Falcons side with an interim coach who knows how to get the best out of his offense.
Falcons 27 Saints 30
Cincinnati Bengals @ Washington Football Team
Washington still have a chance to progress this season despite having 2-7 record. That is mainly due to being in a poor NFC East division. The Bengals have a similar record (2-6) but unfortunately for them they are battling in the tough AFC North. I feel the Bengals have been the more competitive team though in their games so far and they should have too much for Washington.
Bengals 20 Washington 12
New York Jets @ Los Angeles Chargers
The Jets are heading for their 10th loss out of 10 games so far which just isn’t good enough for any NFL team. Adam Gase is still holding on to his head coach status but for how much longer? Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn will have some sympathy as his position must also be under scrutiny after a third consecutive defeat last week takes them to 2-7. The Chargers are still however a far superior team to the Jets and will likely come out on top here.
Jets 17 Chargers 27
Miami Dolphins @ Denver Broncos
The Dolphins are one of the NFL form teams going into game 11. They have won their last five with rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the offense and defense all pulling together at the right time. The Broncos still have an outside chance of making the play offs but have to get back on track this week after 2 defeats on the bounce. I can’t see them doing that this week though.
Dolphins 19 Broncos 13
Dallas Cowboys @ Minnesota Vikings
From going 1-5 a few weeks back, the Vikings look to have found their rhythm winning their last 3. That’s bad news for the Cowboys who have lost their last 4 before a bye last week. I expect the Cowboys to be competitive here but not enough.
Cowboys 34 Vikings 17
Green Bay Packers @ Indianapolis Colts
Aaron Rodgers and has his Packers continue to impress at 7-2 for the season even though they were pushed last time out against the Jaguars. The Colts are a good team themselves though and showed their offensive attributes while racking up 34 points against the Titans last week taking them to 6-3. This is two tough teams going for an important win and I think the Packers will do it.
Packers 24 Colts 20
Kansas City Chiefs @ Las Vegas Raiders
The top two in AFC West face off in Vegas in what should be a cracking game. Remember back in Week 5 the Raiders came out on top in one of a few very impressive victories for them. They currently sit at 6-3 having won their last 3 outings. But the Chiefs are still top dog in many peoples eyes and Patrick Mahomes won’t fancy losing against the Raiders twice in one season. They have still only lost once this season and I can’t see them suffering again here.
Chiefs 31 Raiders 27
Los Angeles Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Monday night gives us an intriguing game between two teams who are going along nicely despite showing inconsistency over the season so far. The Rams are 6-3 and are coming off an impressive victory over the Seahawks. The Buccaneers also bounced back last week with a high scoring win over the Panthers. A lot will depend on which Tom Brady turns up here against a solid Rams defense. If he fancies it then Tampa Bay win it.
