Houston's Finest Week Eleven Picks

Miami-Carolina: Carolina- No Ronnie Brown means no dominant wild cat. This could be the first game Chad Henne has to really play, and I am not sure he can beat a tough Carolina D.

Indianapolis-Baltimore: Indianapolis- No Suggs could create a problem in rushing Peyton Manning.

Washington-Dallas: Dallas- With Fat Albert out for the Skins and Felix Jones healthy for the Boys, Dallas should win, but maybe not as big as expected.

Cleveland-Detroit: Detroit- After watching Cleveland on monday night I came to the conclusion that unless they do get Lebron James they will not win another game this year.

San Francisco-Green Bay: Green Bay- This should be a good game, after a big win last week against the Cowboys I think that Green Bay will use that momentum to win this one too.

Buffalo-Jacksonville: Buffalo- This pick might be because being a Texans fan I need the Jags to lose, but I think that T.O. is going to show up today and get his team the W.

Pittsburgh-Kansas City: Pittsburgh- Easy choice here, Steelers looking for revenge for last weeks loss. Good luck Chiefs

Seattle-Minnesota: Minnesota- Even though I have an insider at this game who has never seen the Vikings win in the Metrodome in 5 tries, this one will be the first W he sees.

Atlanta-New York Giants: New York- No Noorwood. No Turner.

New Orleans-Tampa Bay: New Orleans- I almost picked the Bucs here, then my senses kicked in.

Arizona-St. Louis: St. Louis- Steven Jackson is going to go off this game, they played the Saints very close last weekend and this is not a bad team.

San Diego-Denver: San Diego- Broncos are crashing and burning while the Chargers are on the rise.

New York Jets-New England: New England- Patriots did not forget their week 2 game against the Jets.

Cincinnati-Oakland: Cincinnati: No Jamarcus, still no win.

Philadelphia-Chicago: Philadelphia- Donavan shows up big in his homecoming.

Tennessee-Houston: Houston- Texans need to win to keep playoff hopes alive.

JG's Week 10 Picks

I apologize for being M.I.A. the last couple weeks, I had to write some articles for someone else.

Denver (-3.5) @Washington- The Broncos may be getting the losing fever after dropping their last two, but the Redskins are the perfect remedy. Denver's defense will keep Washington to no more than one touchdown.

Denver 21- Redskins 10

Cincinnati (+7) @Pittsburgh- Cincinnati won the first meeting and if they can pull one off today it would put them in great position to win the AFC North. The Steelers though, after a rocky start, have been playing some of the best football in the league. I like the Steelers in a close one.

Steelers 24- Bengals 21

Jacksonville (+6.5) @New York Jets- The Jets started off as a hot team, and caught the eye of many as a possible Super Bowl Team. Right now though, this is just a game of two 4-4 teams in which 6.5 points is too much. The Jags don't only cover but get the straight up win.

Jaguars 20- Jets 17

Buffalo (+8) @Tennessee- With Vince Young at the helm, the Titans have scored 30 or more in two consecutive weeks, both wins. Buffalo, has struggled mightily offensively and the troubles will continue this week. The Bills are unable to avenge the Music City miracle.

Titans 27- Bills 14

Detroit (+16.5) @Minnesota- Don't expect a trap game here with the Vikings coming off of a bye. They will be ready to get back on the field and bring it to the woeful Lions. Stat of the game: The Lions have not won at the Metrodome in 11 years.

Vikings 31- Lions 14

New Orleans (+14) @St Louis- The teams playing is all that needs to be said.

Saints 41- Rams 20

Atlanta (-1.5) @Carolina- Last year these two teams were the two best teams in the NFC South and two of the best teams in the NFC. Now the Falcons are trying to keep in the mix and the Panthers are attempting to salvage the season for coach John Fox. Matt Ryan has not been nearly as consistent in his sophomore campaign but in the last couple weeks the burner Turner has stepped up. Expect a slugfest that the dirty birds win.

Falcons 17- Panthers 14

Tampa Bay (+10) @Miami- The battle of south Florida got a little more interesting when last week rookie Josh Freeman lead Tampa Bay to their first win against Green Bay. The Dolphins have put some good games together yet still find themselves at 3-5. Tampa Bay will be pumped up and keep this one close.

Dolphins 24- Buccaneers 17

Kansas City (+2) @Oakland- In what may be the least watched game in the history of the NFL the Raiders win simply because they are less inept offensively than the Chiefs.

Raiders 14- Chiefs 10

Seattle (+8.5) @Arizona- Seattle may seem like they are out of it at 3-5, but in the West, a win today would bring them within a game of first place. Matt Hasselbeck plays like his former self and the Seahawks get the straight up win.

Seahawks 27- Cardinals 24

Philadelphia (+1) @San Diego- The Chargers slipped passed the Giants in New Jersey on a last minute Phillip Rivers touchdown toss. Cross country trips are never easy to overcome. This week the Chargers stay hot.

Chargers 30- Eagles 27

Dallas (-3) @Green Bay- This is the most ridiculous line of the day. The Cowboys are the far better team and will prove it today. The cowboys o-line will once again fail to protect Aaron Rodgers and this one is a blowout.

Cowboys 34- Packers 14

New England (+2.5) @Indianapolis- This may be the greatest out of division rivalry in football. Dating back to 2003 the teams have faced each other every year, and multiple times in the playoffs. The Colts may be 8-0 but we all know Tom Brady loves the national stage. Tom Brady has a fantastic day and the Patriots hand the Colts their first loss which will make Don Shula and company very happy.
