Bears Gab Editor Russ Loede’s NFL Picks for Week 11

Laurence Maroney and the Pats go to Buffalo

5-7-1 (65-70-8)

CHARGERS (+3) over Jaguars
SD has more options on offense and will come out hungrier on defense and take an early lead en route to victory.

COLTS (-15) over Chiefs
Not bold and gutsy enough right now at this point to pick KC over Indy because Addai is going to roll!

RAIDERS (+5) over Vikings
I’ll take the points here because whoever Minnesota puts in at QB stinks, and is just as worse as Oakland’s signal caller.  BORING game and I can care less about it, AP being out will hurt!  Oakland shows their defense is better and runs the ball well enough for win.

RAVENS (+3) over Browns
I go too much with my heart and gut feeling, instead of the “better” team a lot, and get burned because of it and I cannot help to change my ways, so Baltimore is going to win because they will be “up” for this game and play their style and thier type/flavor will force Cleveland into a sloppy game.  I’ll go upset here and tell you Ravens are not done just yet, as weird as this sounds!  Have to go against teams I don’t like and teams I do like sometimes, right?  Not that this game fits that category…

BUCS (-3) over Falcons
TB wins because their QB sitaution is more of a sure thing and not shaky like Atlanta.  Bucs defense, run game, and Galloway make the difference.  Tampa takes advantage of opportunities more so than Atlanta does.

BENGALS (-3.5) over Cardinals
Another game on a long, long list of many this week that I can go either way, so I’ll go with the home team, as the hot weather has tough time in the cold weather!

EAGLES (-10) over Dolphins
Philly gettin’ “ILLY”.  Now that’s my SB Pick gettin’ down ‘n dirty, coming back last week to turn their season around!  And guess what I’m not ASHAMED Of It!!!  Both my SB Picks are 4-5, gotta love the prediction bizz-ness!

SAINTS (PICK) over Texans
Na’wlins wins because they will pass at will and Andre Johnson won’t be enough in Reliant Stadium this Sunday in Houston.  Catfish, Gumbo, and Baton Rouge anyday over the Lone star state’s own laughing stock in this match-up!

PACKERS (-10) over Panthers
GB is the team I want to see win the SB!  Sorry Bears fans, the Pack is on fire and Carolina won’t extinguish the Packers “sweet” gameplan that’s sweeter than a pack of “Sweedish Fish”.  Green Bay all the way!

GIANTS (-3) over Lions
A team that put up -18 rush yards against a team led by the monster named Brandon Jacobs?  Manning, Burress, and Shockey going up against still one of the worst defenses in the NFL?  G-Men taking it to a bad o-line and bringing the heat with the DE pressure from the best 1-2 pass rush combo in the league, en route to sacks galore?  Points made, case rested, and clearly stated – GIANTS by 20 or more!

STEELERS (-10) over Jets
Can’t go against the Pittsburgh Steelers, those Super Bowl Candidates, now Contending for a 1st round bye in the AFC.

REDSKINS (+11.5) over Cowboys
Dallas cowgirls don’t cover the point spread and Washington plays this game close, with a timely, agressive defense, strong rushing game, and good decision making.  Gibbs and the Troops will be ready to knock on the door and bust open this door of opportunity.  ‘Skins go into attack mode and show world that Dallas is still ways away if they want to be mentioned as a team that can win it all!

49ERS (+3) over Rams
Why not?!?  Frank Gore shows us last year’s Frank Gore and Niners play out of their mind early on and win this NFC West classic…

BEARS (+5.5) over Seahwaks
Chicago Bears are back for another week…  Keep them on your watch and not the danger list because they match-up well against Seattle and they will win this game outright because of their defense and opportunistic offense that will lead the charge!

BILLS (+16.5) over Patriots
Buffalo keep this showdown within range and comes out with some tricks up their sleeve.  Bills are a different team at home, Evans will have a field day, and Buffalo’s defense will confuse the Brady Bunch and Coach WizzKid.  Buffalo’s home atmosphere is unbeatable and one of a kind!

TITANS (+2) over Broncos
Usually I take the home team, as Denver came off a big win, while on the other hand, Tennessee lost a big game at home.  Switch the picture and not so fast, as a role reversal takes place this week as Titans come out on top victoriously.   Young & Culter both put on shows and play great, with the game coming down to a FG at the end, look for lots of points scored and a fun contest at Mile High in a must-win for both teams!
