Steelers vs Jaguars

Steelers vs Jaguars: The Jacksonville Jaguars may not be the dominant force they were back when they defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers last postseason, but that doesn’t mean Week 11’s rematch won’t be interesting. After acquiring their fifth consecutive loss on the season Week 10, it’s clearly desperation time as the locker room seems to understand that more than anyone. That should only add fuel to the fire for a game in which the Steelers have likely had circled for a while.

With the Jags currently dealing with offensive line injuries, the defense will be getting back a 2017 pro bowler in cornerback A.J. Bouye, who has missed the Jags’ last two games. That could help them tremendously as they’ll be dealing with an offense that features JuJu Smith-Schuster and Antonio Brown on the outside. However, despite the Steelers talent at receiver, Sunday’s game will heavily depend on if the Jags can stop running back James Conner, who is currently fourth in the league in rushing with 771 yards and 10 touchdowns.

On offense, the Jags will need to find a way to get Leonard Fournette going despite having a new starter at left tackle in Ereck Flowers and being without their best offensive lineman in center Brandon Linder. Simply put, they were able to move Pittsburgh’s line off the ball in their last meeting, and with defensive end Stephon Tuitt out for Sunday’s game, we could see the Jags run at his backup and former Jag, Tyson Alualu, early and often.

Buccaneers vs Giants

Buccaneers vs Giants: The Buccaneers go back on the road for Week 11 as they set out to turn the tides on their season against the New York Giants. The Giants are coming off a short week, eking out a win over the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football this past week. They may have gotten the win but that also means limited recovery time after a cross-country trip across four times zones.

The Bucs take their high-powered offense into the Big Apple to take on the league’s 26th-ranked defense. The Giants are giving up an average of 367.2 yards per game, 244.7 of which is through the air. The Bucs are averaging 452.8 yards per game, which is absolutely ludicrous, and puts them on pace to finish with the most yards in a season in NFL history – yes, ahead of “The Greatest Show on Turf” – by a long shot.

It may be the Bucs’ defense that has its day, led by one man who has a little extra motivation in returning to New York. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul spent the last eight seasons as a Giant before he was traded by the team to Tampa Bay. While the Bucs are very glad to have him, he leads the team with eight sacks this season, and he is happy to be in Tampa, there’s a little bit of residual emotion leftover from his departure and he’ll be looking to show New York what it’s been missing in his first game facing off against his former team.

Cowboys vs Falcons

Cowboys vs Falcons: A key game in the NFC wild-card race takes place Sunday at 1 p.m. ET when the Atlanta Falcons host the Dallas Cowboys. Both clubs are one game behind Green Bay in the NFC wild-card standings, and the winner will get a leg up in the battle for a coveted postseason spot. The Falcons (4-5) were considered a favorite to win the NFC South, but now sit a seemingly insurmountable four games behind the Saints. Atlanta is looking to bounce back from a disappointing performance in a 28-16 loss to the Browns. Meanwhile, Dallas (4-5) climbed into a tie for second place in the NFC East with its upset of Philadelphia, but remains two games behind the Redskins. On Sunday, Atlanta is a three-point favorite and the over-under for total points scored is 49.5 in the current Cowboys vs. Falcons odds. Before you make any Cowboys vs. Falcons picks, check out what SportsLine expert Mike Tierney has to say.

Tierney is a widely respected national sportswriter who also has emerged as one of the top handicappers in all sports for SportsLine. He’s currently among their top NFL analysts with an astounding record of 41-19, returning a whopping profit of $2,000 to $100 bettors. Moreover, he’s had an especially sharp eye when it comes to the tendencies of Dallas. Over the past two seasons, Tierney is 8-2 on spread picks involving the Cowboys.

Two weeks ago, Tierney advised SportsLine members that the Cowboys were too big of a favorite against the Titans and would struggle to cover a spread of nearly a touchdown. The result: Tennessee won outright, 28-14, and anyone who heeded Tierney’s advice booked an easy winner.

Now, Tierney has studied Falcons vs. Cowboys from every possible angle and released a strong point-spread selection that’s available only at SportsLine.

Tierney knows that in beating the defending Super Bowl champions on the road, the Cowboys showed a varied and effective offense, while their sterling defense consistently delivered stops. Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 151 yards on 19 carries with a touchdown while adding six receptions for 36 yards and another score. New acquisition Amari Cooper had six catches for 75 yards.

The defense, minus injured star Sean Lee, held the Eagles to 71 rushing yards and forced an interception from Carson Wentz.

Just because the Cowboys are coming in hot doesn’t mean they’ll cover against a Falcons team that has beaten the spread in five of the last seven meeting between these clubs.

Atlanta’s sixth-ranked offense remained productive in last week’s loss, as quarterback Matt Ryan threw for 330 yards with two touchdowns and no picks. Five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Julio Jones had seven catches for 107 yards and another score.

In last year’s 27-7 rout of Dallas, Atlanta’s defense sacked Dak Prescott eight times and forced two turnovers. Ryan threw for 215 yards and a pair of scores.

We can tell you Tierney is leaning toward the Under, but his much stronger play is on the side. He has identified a crucial X-factor that makes one side of the spread a must-back. He’s only sharing at SportsLine.

Bengals vs Ravens

Bengals vs Ravens: The Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals each had injury news to deal with this week with major impacts on their respective teams. The Ravens have had to deal with quarterback Joe Flacco and a hip injury that now has him set to miss the game. The Bengals are banged up all over the place but will reportedly be without wide receiver A.J. Green.

With so much up in the air in a crucial matchup for both franchises and their hopes for playoff berths, it has made for some interesting predictions. The staff here at Ravens Wire did our best to offer what we think is going to happen and what the final score is going to be. Take a look:
Matthew Stevens:

Ravens 23 – Bengals 21

With so much changing in this game for Baltimore, it’s hard to really say how things are going to pan out in reality. But the Ravens have a lot going for them in favor of a win this week that I just can’t ignore. And while Baltimore is good for a let down a little too often, they don’t spiral completely out of control under coach John Harbaugh.

I think we see a highly motivated Ravens team come out of the tunnel. There will be a few bumps on the road with Jackson reportedly getting his first career start but this one just means too much to Baltimore for them to drop it.
