N.F.L. Week 11 Predictions: Our Picks for Each Game


Cleveland Browns (3-6) at Buffalo Bills (6-3), 1 p.m. CBS

Line: Bills -8 | Total: 43

The Bills have played like the perfect team in football in lots of weeks, but their back-to-back losses have underscored a troubling fault: turnovers. Buffalo is tied for second within the league in turnovers (18), a selected area of concern heading into what’s expected to be a sloppy-weather game. The Bills’ biggest hope for a rebound lies in Cleveland’s foremost weakness: the N.F.L.’s worst run defense. Buffalo is ranked in the highest 10 in rushing yards per game behind carries from Devin Singletary and Josh Allen. In the event that they can maintain possession, the Bills should win easily. Pick: Bills -8

Philadelphia Eagles (8-1) at Indianapolis Colts (4-5-1), 1 p.m. CBS

Line: Colts +6.5 | Total: 45.5

The Eagles’ first lack of the season was greater than just an ego blow. Tight end Dallas Goedert, who trails only A.J. Brown in receiving yards for the team, injured his shoulder during a pivotal fourth-quarter play and landed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Now Philadelphia travels to face the Colts, who looked revitalized of their first game under the interim coach Jeff Saturday. He reinstated Matt Ryan because the starting quarterback and called enough rollouts, screens, and run-pass options to open running lanes for Jonathan Taylor, who had just his second 100-yard rushing game of the season. If Ryan and Taylor play at their best, the Colts should lose but could possibly be ok to cover at home. Pick: Colts +6.5

Dallas Cowboys (6-3) at Minnesota Vikings (8-1), 4:25 p.m., CBS

Line: Vikings +1 | Total: 47

Make it make sense. The Cowboys were outscored by 17-0 within the fourth quarter and extra time of their loss to the Packers last week, and so they at the moment are 2-2 with Dak Prescott because the starter this season. The Vikings upset the Bills last week in what’s being called the sport of the yr thanks partly to Justin Jefferson, who became the primary N.F.L. player to top 100 yards receiving 20 times in his first three seasons.

Someway the Vikings are still laying some extent to the Cowboys, but this will be the last regular-season game by which that’s the case: Minnesota was favored in every remaining game after this one. Pick: Cowboys -1

Kansas City (7-2) at Los Angeles Chargers (5-4), 8:20 p.m., NBC

Line: Chargers +6.5 | Total: 50.5

When these two A.F.C. West rivals met in Week 2, the rookie cornerback Jaylen Watson’s pick-6 of a Justin Hebert throw swung the sport in Kansas City’s favor. Before that big play, Patrick Mahomes had been harassed behind the road of scrimmage and was struggling to regulate to the absence of Tyreek Hill. Secure to say that Kansas City has adjusted within the games since. Mahomes is now the betting favorite to win the Most Worthwhile Player Award and has fully integrated receiver Kadarius Toney, whom the team acquired from the Giants on the trade deadline, into the offense.

The Chargers, alternatively, have seen Herbert’s top two targets, Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring), go down with injuries. Each are questionable for Sunday night’s game. Herbert ranks second within the N.F.L. behind Tom Brady in pass attempts, but he’s 14th in completion percentage, a stat that won’t improve without effective pass-catchers available. Pick: Kansas City -6.5
