The NFL kicked off Week 11 in ugly fashion on Thursday Night Football. The Browns beat the Steelers bought not before multiple Steelers were knocked out by illegal hits, and Browns pass rusher Myles Garrett got ejected after swinging a helmet at Steelers quarterback Myles Garrett. The Browns got a big win, but it was an embarrassing display.
We are back for the main slate of games on Sunday, with hopes that things are cleaner and on the up-and-up. We get some huge matchups for this weekend’s contests. The biggest game features two AFC division leaders squaring off as the Ravens and Texans battle for the second first round bye behind the Patriots. Speaking of the Patriots, they travel to face the Eagles in a huge inter-conference matchup of potential playoff teams.
I’ve found some life of late after a rough stretch, but took a step back in Week 10. I went 5-7-1 last week and now sit at 70-75-3 on the season. We’ll see if I can bounce back in Week 11.
I’ve got some wagers in place for this weekend and will add a couple more on Sunday. I have the Patriots at -3.5 in Philly. Both teams are coming off a bye, but I think we see New England bounce back from a rough loss to Baltimore. The Eagles are shorthanded at receiver against the best pass defense in the league and that won’t end well. I also grabbed the first half over for Jaguars-Colts (21). These are two teams that know each other well, and have potentially rusty quarterbacks coming back from injury.
