NFL Gridiron Great Top 11 (Week 11)

December is fast approaching and down the stretch, the NFL season comes. Here’s a dive into our Gridiron Great 11 heading into week 12.

Gridiron Great Top 11 (Week 11)

#11. Buffalo Bills 6-5 (+1400/+2800) - When the offense is right, this team looks like a Super Bowl contender. Can they stay right with a new OC? Last Week’s Rank: Unranked

#10. Seahawks 6-4 (+2200/+4500) - This is a critical stretch for the Seahawks with several key players banged up. Last Week’s Rank: 8th

#9. Cleveland Browns 7-3 (+1800/+3500) - The Browns won an ugly game against the Steelers. They can do that with a dominant defense. Last Week’s Rank: Unranked

#8. Jacksonville Jaguars 7-3 (+800/+2000) - The Jags were not at their best on Sunday but still comfortably beat Tennessee. A good sign for things ahead. Last Week’s Rank: 9th

#7. Miami Dolphins 7-3 (+360/+900) - The Dolphins had a tougher-than-expected game against the Raiders at home. Now a tough one on the road in poor conditions at the Jets on Sunday. Last Week’s Rank: 7th

#6. Baltimore Ravens 8-3 (+360/+850) - The Ravens took down the Bengals on Thursday night but it came at a price. TE Marc Andrews is likely done for the season. Last Week’s Rank: 6th

#5. Kansas City Chiefs 7-3 (+225/+475) - Sometimes we just take the Chiefs for granted. But this team is last in the league in second-half points this season. And the dropped passes! Last Week’s Rank: 2nd

#4. Dallas Cowboys 7-3 (+500/+1100) - The Cowboys have now outscored the opposition by over 70 points in their four wins at home this season. Last Week’s Rank: 4th

#3. Detroit Lions 8-2 (+475/+1000) - The Lions continue to find ways to win and come into their annual Thanksgiving Day game with their best record at this point since the 1960s! Last Week’s Rank: 4th

#2. SF 49ers 7-3 (+230/+475) - Here come the Niners. They look healthy and Brock Purdy doesn’t seem irrelevant again. Last Week’s Rank: 4th

#1. Philadelphia Eagles 9-1 (+200/+480) - The Eagles avenged their Super Bowl loss by duplicating KC’s efforts in the Super Bowl. The Eagles overcame a 10-point halftime deficit and put more distance between themselves and the rest of the pack. Last Week’s Rank: 1st

Upset Alert for Week 11: We are now 9-5 in our upset specials on the season after going 0-2 in Week 11, Burrow’s injury wiped out that upset watch and the Jets laid an egg in Buffalo.

#1. Miami at (+10) New York Jets: I expect a fired-up Jets team on Friday. The team was looking for a change at QB and now they got it. Can the weather and motivation be enough to stop the Dolphins offense?

#2. Carolina (+3.5) at Tennessee: The Panthers are in the midst of a long season but their defense has held up. Tennessee’s running game is not the same as it was a few seasons ago and something tells me that half a point will tell the story in this game.
