Fearless Rick's NFL Week 11 Picks - Early Games

Rick Gagliano | November 13-16

All times Eastern - Click here for late games.

Thursday, November 13

Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins (-5, 42) 8:25 pm - After losing late to Detroit last week, 20-16, Miami is poised to make a season-ending run for the playoffs.

Buffalo lost its way last week, losing to the Chiefs, 17-13, and now must deal with a short work week and a serious, divisional rival.

The Bills topped Miami, 29-10, in Week 2, but the Dolphins have improved dramatically while Buffalo has suffered injuries to both starting running backs, C.J. Spiller and fred Jackson. Kyle Orton has done OK as a replacement, but he's not the future. Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins' QB, is.

Prediction: Dolphins 24 Bills 14

Sunday, November 16

Denver Broncos (-10, 51) at St. Louis Rams 1:00 pm - The Rams were overwhelmed in the second half of their 31-14 loss to Arizona last week and this week will likely be overwhelmed much earlier by Peyton Manning and the Denver offense (Manning in a dome, no wind, wow!).

The Rams are 3-6 and on the verge of being eliminated from post-season consideration. Denver is on its way to another AFC West title and is eyeing best record in the conference, currently tied with New England at 7-2.

Prediction: Broncos 40 Rams 10

San Francisco 49ers (-4 1/2, 44) at New York Giants 1:00 pm - Another 3-6 team (NY) against a likely playoff squad makes for a solid play for the visiting favorite.

San Francisco is merely 5-4, but has regained its mojo after beating New orleans in the Superdome last week, 27-24, in overtime. The 49er defense should continue to improve as they're finally fully healthy. NY's defense is struggling at #26 in points allowed, a hefty 27.4. Put a fork in the Giants after this game. Their season is over.

Prediction: 49ers 28 Giants 10

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Washington Redskins (-7, 45) 1:00 pm - Toilet bowl game pitting the 3-6 'Skins against the 1-8 Bucs. Last man standing turn out the lights, please.

Prediction: Buccaneers 21 Redskins 17

Cincinnati Bengals at New Orleans Saints (-8, 50) 1:00 pm - surprising to see the Saints such a huge favorite, even after losing at home to the 49ers last week.

The Bengals had their hats handed to them by the Browns, but still remain in second place in the AFC North, the only division in the league with all four teams over .500. Yeah, the Saints are very solid at home, but the Bengals need a win badluy. Let's not forget that New Orleans is 4-5.

Prediction: Benglas 31 Saints 28

Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers (even, 46) 1:00 pm - The Panthers have lost four straight and looked ridiculous in Monday night's stomping at the hands of the Eagles, who took it to them for a 45-21 win.

Cam Newton may have to be carried out on a stretcher. Falcons still have a fighting chance to win the division despite being 3-6 entering this game, but a win here is essential to their cause.

Prediction: Falcons 24 Panthers 15

Seattle Seahawks at Kansas City Chiefs (even, 42) 1:00 pm - After an 0-2 start, the Chiefs are 6-1 and have won four straight. Their defense has been the catalyst for their recent success. In only one of their six wins has the opponent scored more than 15 points (@ San Diego, 23-20, Week 7).

Seattle sputters on offense more often than they'd like to admit and that's the reason for three losses currently on the books. KC is very tough at home, running up a 3-1 mark thus far. Ought to be one of the best games of the weekend, well worth watching.

Prediction: Chiefs 17 Seahawks 14

Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns (-3, 42 1/2) 1:00 pm - The Browns are on a three-game winning streak, punctuated by last Thursday's 24-3 crunching of the Bengals. They must keep winning in order to stay ahead of Cincy, Baltimore and Pittsburgh, which are all hot on the Browns' tails.

This could turn into a defensive struggle of some magnitude, but, at the end of the day, Cleveland is simply a better team, riding high at present and one of the NFL's biggest surprises of 2014.

Prediction: Browns 17 Texans 10

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears (-3, 47) 1:00 pm - Bears: pathetic. Minnesota is actually a game ahead of their NFL North rivals and can put more distance between them with a win.

Vikings should be 5-5 after this one with a decent shot at the playoffs. Believe it.

Prediction: Vikings 26 Bears 20
