NFL Week 11 picks (UPDATED WITH MONDAY NIGHT PICKS)

This is the condensed version of picks for the NFL Week 11 games for Winners and Whiners between:

Pittsburgh at Jacksonville
Kansas City vs. Los Angeles Rams

Week 10 Review:

It is amazing watching one play completely undo your picks. In the Dallas-Philadelphia play Sunday night, that 3rd-and-15 screen pass to Michael Gallup for 25 yards when the Cowboys led 6-3 changed everything. If the Eagles make a stop there, the Cowboys punt and the Eagles likely run out the clock. I had the Cowboys under 8.5 points in the first half, the Cowboys under 18.5 points, the Eagles giving 6.5 points, and the overall under. And all four picks came undone with the ripple effects after that conversion.

All things considered, though, to finish above .500 after hitting 75 percent in Week 9 is acceptable. There were also a lot of ugly games in terms of betting, and there was some comeuppance (hello, New England and the Jacksonville-Indianapolis under).

Note: Monday’s picks will move late morning/early afternoon Monday after the “Bank the Bet” podcast in which Scott Steehn and I break down the titanic, humongous, incredible, not-to-be missed, gargantuan and epic possible Super Bowl preview between the Chiefs and Rams. So give a listen!
