Tom Brady and the New England Patriots host Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday.
NFL Week 11 previews and predictions for every game on the schedule:
Dolphins (4-5) at Bills (3-6)
The home team is 7–3 on Thursday night this year, so there is a chance that Buffalo fans could witness their first win at Ralph Wilson Stadium since Week 2 against the Chiefs.
Bills by 1
Bengals (4-5) at Chiefs (1-8)
Kansas City is 0–4 at Arrowhead this season and just 1–8 at home dating back to last year.
Bengals by 7
Eagles (3-6) at Redskins (3-6)
Mike Shanahan has a 10–6 record in games immediately following his bye. But this will be the third straight year the Skins play the Eagles after the bye; they’re 0–2 in those contests, with a 59–28 loss in 2010 and 20–13 loss last year.
Redskins by 3
Jaguars (1-8) at Texans (8-1)
The Jags are happy to leave Jacksonville, where they have been outscored 153–44. Strangely, the teal team has only been outscored 93–83 on the road. They must like playing in front of a crowd.
Texans by 16
Jets (3-6) at Rams (3-5-1)
Rex Ryan is standing by his man Mark Sanchez despite the fact that the Jets have scored only one offensive TD over their last eight quarters.
Rams by 3
Browns (2-7) at Cowboys (4-5)
This is a classic trap game for Dallas — tucked between a win over the Eagles and a Turkey Day showdown with the Redskins.
Cowboys by 8
Buccaneers (5-4) at Panthers (2-7)
Tampa Bay’s Josh Freeman has thrown 13 TDs and one INT while leading the Bucs to a 4–1 record over his last five games. Carolina’s Cam Newton has passed for four TDs, five INTs and has a 1–4 mark over the same time frame.
Buccaneers by 4
Packers (6-3) at Lions (4-5)
The last time Titletown’s team traveled to the Motor City, Lions wild child Ndamukong Suh was ejected for stomping on Thanksgiving.
Packers by 7
Cardinals (4-5) at Falcons (8-1)
Matt Ryan has an 8–0 record after a loss over the last two years and a 14–3 career mark.
Falcons by 9
Saints (4-5) at Raiders (3-6)
If they’re not careful, the Saints’ march back into the playoff picture will get lost in the Black Hole.
Saints by 6
Colts (6-3) at Patriots (6-3)
Hopefully Tom Brady will spark up a rivalry with Andrew Luck like he had with the other guy.
Patriots by 9
Chargers (4-5) at Broncos (6-3)
Peyton Manning threw his 420th TD pass and won his 147th game last week, tying Dan Marino on both all-time lists. Time to pass Dan the Man.
Broncos by 6
Ravens (7-2) at Steelers (6-3)
Pittsburgh’s Emmanuel Sanders was fined $15K for faking an injury. But Ben Roethlisberger’s right shoulder injury appears to be very real. Surviving Baltimore without Big Ben will be tough.
Steelers by 2
Bears (7-2) at 49ers (6-2-1)
Chi-town’s Jay Cutler and San Fran’s Alex Smith suffered concussions in disappointing games, leaving backups Jason Campbell and Colin Kaepernick in charge until further notice.
49ers by 4
Last week: 10-4 // Season: 98-48
