OK, the NFL has moved the game to Rams home stadium. The field in Mexico was in bad shape, not suitable to play.

All teams scheduled to give up a home game for an international game are required to have their home stadiums available on an emergency basis. The Rams have traveled to Colorado Springs to prepare for the Mexico City trip at altitude, but will now head back home to get ready to host the 9-1 Chiefs.

Will this change some thinking about their picks???

Wow! Apparently that dang Shakira causes all kinds of chaos and disorder everywhere she performs. Now it's a major shambles going on with the TURF (of all things) inside Estadio Azteca? Wow!

Okay, I'm officially boycotting ALL Shakira concerts from now on.

Since the RAMS game is moved to the LA Memorial Coliseum it does change the dynamics of the game. Going into week 11, lots of players are injured. The RAMS will be without the GLUE (Kupp) that gives headaches to opposing defenses. However they still have a solid defense. The Chiefs are thin on secondary anyway, and will match up well with the Rams other receivers. Home field advantage? maybe. The Chiefs area force too. This will be the game of the week !

The EAGLES lost in part due to a lack of corners. They have been snakebitten with injuries there. MY FINZ have a banged up Offensive line, no starting QB. The grounded jets are without rookie sensation whats his name from Oklahoma.

TEAMS that know how to draft deep and play well late in the season will win. That is why the Patriots are often in the mix, they draft well and have talent ready to come off the bench. The Steelers are coming around as an AFC powerhouse. The Titans are finally in a groove. SO there is still a lot of good football left.

The teams with depth, good coaching, and the ability to adjust to situations will stick around. Teams that cannot (like the Buccaneers for example.....getting into the red zone over and over and not scoring a TD?) are already out.


Packers @ SEAHAWKS I think Pete Carroll chews gum and out coaches the Pack for a home win. If this were in Lambeau, I'd go with Susan's Packers - Both teams have struggled, yetfor the Pack to be 4-4-1 going into week 11 is unimaginable 12 weeks ago. .....But as the late Great Guy Lombardo said "Enjoy yourself -it's later than you think."

BENGALS @ Ravens Last time, in CIncy., the Stripey Cats ate the Birds. The Ravens are on a 3 game skid, Edgar Allen Poe is probably turning over in his grave, and Coach John Hairball is likely to be unemployed in a few weeks

===================CATFIGHT===============
PANTHERS @ Lions Lions are bigger and stronger but lack the speed and stealth of a panther Hard to pick, but the Lions may have to wait until THANKSGIVIN' to pick up a win at home. Wonder how many TURKEYS Matt Stafford can afford with the $ 867 Million dollar salary?
====================================

TITANS @ Colts At some point we need to pick some home teams, but this may be a good game. Good, Goode, and Luck and company are playing well and the Mariota Titans are moving the ball., This could be a tie.

Cowboys @ FALCONS IF it follows the Cowboys win/lose/win/lose pattern then the Dirty Birds will win. I do not trust them though, and am likely ruining this pick, I never get the Cowboys right, they are too inconsistent.

Buccaneers @ GIANTS It appears that the city of TAMPA have given up on the Buccaneers season officially now. Time to bring the ship in, make a few people walk the plank, and try to forget how they will make the Giants defense as well as Eli Manning look good. Look for Beckham to have a field day.

Eagles @ SAINTS The Eagles are hurt, the Saints are on fire, and the Saints will be without Dez Bryant., no matter.

TEXICANS @ Redskins Which Redskins team will show up? Which Texicans team will show up? Getting worried picking this many visiting teams


Broncos @ SAN ANGELES /HOMELESS CHARGERS I don't like the Chargers, I am looking forward to seeing them tank, which may be week one of the playoffs, but until then.......


Raiders @ PESKY RED BIRDS The Autumn Wind has become the Autumn Disappointment of the season.

STEELERS @ Jaguars Big Ben puts away Little Blake and the Spotted Cats

Vikings @ BEARS This will be the first meeting of the season between these two leaders in the black and blue division. I agree Cousins is NOT the savior of the Vikings and it will come down to the Bears D eeking out a close win.


CHIEFS @ Rams - Could this be a Super Bowl Liii Prematch?

Byes: 6 teams - Bill's Buffaloes, Browns, My Finz, Grounded Jets, PATRIOTS , 49ers PATRIOTS because the other 5 teams are off every week anyway !

I love this..
NFL has been trying to export/peddle football for years (including hoisting American football on to Mexico). But I guess when you expand in to a Third World market, you have to anticipate Third World ineptitude/indifference..

Chiefs @ Rams - Mexico game - thanks for the reminder Colt!

Byes: 6 teams - Bills, Browns, Dolphins, Jets, Pats, 49ers

Chiefs @ Rams should be a great game, who to pick? The home team, Rams have shown their weak spots, Packers almost beat them! I might go with the Chiefs! Have fun picking! Go Pack Go!
Seahawks – A good show from the running game against LA carries over to a favorable home matchup.

Ravens – Both teams are falling out of the playoff race but the Ravens take advantage of an awful Bengals D.

Falcons – The Birds are able to conquer the Cowboys only because the game is in Atlanta.

Buccaneers- Fitzmagic ain’t happening but he will be good enough to beat an equally bad team.

Steelers – The Steel City conquers their phobia to Jaguars.

Texans – A surging Texans team beats a Washington team that is not as good as their record.

Colts – The Titans are due for a letdown after last week’s big win and the Colts are capable of delivering.

Panthers – The Panthers get the lowly Lions at the right time after a beatdown. CMC tears apart an unimpressive Lions D.

Chargers – The quiet SB contender gets an important divison win.

Cardinals – Josh Rosen does just enough to get by a total dumpster fire.

Saints – Drew Brees at home, not picking against him.

Bears – K Mack closer to full strength is too much for Mr. You Like That.

Rams – Not an easy one to choose, but trusting the Rams to play just enough D to slow down Mahomes. First to 42 wins

With the Bears and Vikes having strong defenses, this game could hinge on critical turnovers at the QB position.

Bears defense in particular has been scoring a lot of points this season and those 10-14 point swings are back-breakers.

So rumor has it Ravens QB Joe Flacco may not play Sunday, who is the backup QB, didn't RGIII go there? I picked the Ravens and guess I'll stay with my pick.
