5 NFL Games That Will Be Blowouts in Week 11

Week 10 was a perfect example of how tough it is to predict what will happen in the NFL. There were several upsets, including the last two winless teams getting their first victories. Before trying to forecast Week 11's biggest blowouts, let’s look at the most lopsided victories from last week.

Buffalo Bills 10 -- Pittsburgh Steelers 23

This wasn’t exactly a blowout or a big surprise, but it was the fifth-most lopsided victory of the week.

Philadelphia Eagles 27 -- Green Bay Packers 13

This one was also not a huge surprise considering the absence of Aaron Rodgers. For the bulk of the game, the Pack had Scott Tolzien under center, a QB who had never thrown an NFL pass prior to the game.

Seattle Seahawks 33 -- Atlanta Falcons 10

Now we’re getting into the surprises. After their extremely narrow victory against the St. Louis Rams with Kellen Clemens at quarterback, it’s tough to figure out what you’re going to get from the Seahawks.

St. Louis Rams 38 -- Indianapolis Colts 8

I don’t care if you were right; if you predicted this outcome, I don’t trust your predictions. What logical reasons could a person possibly have for picking the Rams to blow out the Colts on the road? This was the crazy, beyond-logic game of the week.

Dallas Cowboys 17 -- New Orleans Saints 49

The Saints are always a good bet to put a lot of points on the board and against a Cowboys defense that came into the game ranked 31st in total defense, the biggest blowout of the week isn’t all that surprising.

5. Detroit Lions at Pittsburgh Steelers

The mediocre Pittsburgh defense will be facing a Detroit offense that is seventh in points per game and sixth in total offense. With Pittsburgh putting up just 19.9 per game, Detroit should have a comfortable win.

Prediction: Detroit 33 -- Pittsburgh 17

4. San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints

We haven’t seen a lot of Kaepernicking from Colin Kaepernick this season with just 220.6 total yards per game and 12 total TDs. The Saints may not put up 49 on a tough San Francisco defense, but they're still going to put some points on the board.

Prediction: New Orleans 31 -- San Francisco 14

3. San Diego Chargers at Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins are an absolute mess and are coming off giving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers their first win. With Miami’s offensive line in shambles and San Diego’s seventh-ranked offense, I smell a lopsided win.

Prediction: San Diego 28 -- Miami 10

2. Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles are fourth in total offense with 413.4 yards per game, and they’re up against a Redskin team that is 25th in total defense (388.6 YPG) and 31st in points allowed (31.9 PPG)

Prediction: Philadelphia 45 -- Washington 24

1. Minnesota Viking at Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks are at home and have offensive line help on the way. Against a Vikings defense that is 30th in the league at points allowed with 31 per game, don’t be surprised to see the biggest blowout of the week.

Prediction: Seattle 40 -- Minnesota 10
