NFL Week 11 picks: A Browns upset and the arrival of the Panthers

John Grieshop

The NFL gives us a snoozer with Colts at Titans, but follows it up with a slate of good match-ups.

The Steelers are a never-fun three-point underdog at home. On one hand, you look at how their offense handled a good defensive front in Buffalo, and think maybe there's a chance they can get some explosion offensively, and ride a steadily improving defense to a win.

Then, you take the same scenario and apply it to the Lions, and realize that's far more realistic. It's tough betting against the Steelers at home, but that's really the smart money here.

Lions (-3) over STEELERS

Colts (-3) over TITANS

BUCCANEERS (+1) over Falcons

Jets (+1) over BILLS

EAGLES (-4.5) over Redskins

BEARS (-3) over Ravens

Browns (+6) over BENGALS

TEXANS (off) over Raiders

JAGUARS (+8) over Cardinals

Chargers (-1.5) over DOLPHINS

SEAHAWKS (-13) over Vikings

SAINTS (off) over 49ers

GIANTS (-6) over Packers

Chiefs (+8) over BRONCOS

PANTHERS (-1) over Patriots
