Prisco’s NFL Week 11 picks: Chiefs edge Cowboys in thriller, Cam Newton beats former coach, Buccaneers rebound

It is all the time sensible to give attention to the great earlier than the unhealthy, so I’ll just do that.

I went 4-2 with my Finest Bets as a part of the Decide Six Podcast, which takes my season document as much as 33-30. That is the great.

Now for the unhealthy. I lastly had that horrible week selecting all of the video games in opposition to the unfold, going 5-9 to drop my season document to 79-68-3. My straight-up document was 7-6-1 to place my season mark at 89-60-1.

Final week was a type of slates that I simply did not really feel like I had a very good grasp of heading into making the picks, so I type of anticipated a down week. Plus, Brady Quinn, who does the weekly picks present with me on CBS Sports activities HQ, had nearly the an identical picks that I had. So I knew, contemplating his run of unhealthy weeks, that I used to be on my approach to the crapper. Yet one more factor: Will Brinson had a very good week, which reveals how off every week it was and why I did not do as properly. He is been selecting like a man who throws darts on the wall.

So let’s flip it round — and hope like heck I haven’t got lots of the similar picks as Brady Quinn.

Sunday, 8:20 p.m. (NBC)

Newest Odds:

Los Angeles Chargers

Ben Roethlisberger could possibly be again for this one after the Steelers tied the Lions when he missed for COVID. The Chargers have not appeared as crisp on offense for a lot of the previous month, which might be a problem in opposition to the Steelers protection. This may really feel like a house sport for the Steelers with all of the Pittsburgh followers who might be there. It would play out like one, too. The Steelers win it in an upset if Roethlisberger is again. If not, all bets are off. I anticipate him again.
