Av's "Looking West" - Week 11
I am going to go out on a limb here and GUARANTEE that the Rams' game will not result in a tie this week.
Week 11 Picks
This should be the week that the Rams win without any fourth quarter dramatics. The Jets' offense is weak, and the Rams should be able to move the ball on the Jets' defense. While the media is playing up the Tebow angle, I think the bigger story will be Brian Schottenheimer's ability to game plan for a defense he is very familiar with.
The Falcons are mad, and the Cardinals are... well... pretty bad. I don't expect this to be much of a fight. While Arizona's defense is, in fact, pretty good, the Falcons have too many weapons for them to handle.
Alex Smith has been cruising along and efficiently running the Niners' offense. Assuming he plays (reports suggest he'll be over the concussion he suffered against the Rams), this is the week that comes to an end. His turnovers (interceptions or fumbles) will be the difference in a defensive battle.
Niners 6-3-1 (2-0-1)
Seahawks 6-4-0 (0-3-0)
Rams 4-5-1 (2-0-1)
Cardinals 4-6-0 (1-2-0)
