Five bold NFL predictions for Week 11: Jets, Zach Wilson win on Bill Belichick’s turf; Cowboys make tactical mistakes

We’re more than halfway through the NFL season now, and things like that playoff picture are approaching a more solid appearance. There are a number of games this weekend that could have a dramatic impact on division standings and conference seeding, and while we don’t yet know what will happen in any of them, we can certainly make predictions.

We’re going to use this space to make five bold predictions about Week 11.

That bills get back on course in a big way

Buffalo lost back-to-back games for the first time since weeks 13 and 14 of last season. And just as the Bills got back on track a year ago after back-to-back losses by destroying an underachieving opponent, they will do the same this year. In 2021 it was a 31:14 win over the Carolina Panther. This year, the bills will hang a 40-point on the Cleveland Browns in a game being played at Detroit’s Ford Field Dome.

The Browns defense just isn’t equipped to handle all the weapons Josh Allen has at his disposal. A game in the Elements would have been beneficial to Cleveland even if played in Buffalo. The combination of the Browns’ offensive line and Nick Chubb could have slowed things down and sanded them away. But playing at the football equivalent of Coors Field favors the Bills, and the Browns won’t be able to keep up.

That nozzles go out on the street and hit them patriots

We all know the story of young quarterbacks playing against Bill Belichick. It’s not great. Since 2000, the quarterbacks are only 19-72 against the Patriots in their first two years in the league. In New England, they’re a despicable 6-44. The last time Wilson started a game there, the Jets lost 54-13. (He was injured during the game and was replaced by Mike White.) Earlier this season, the Pats beat the Jets 22-17 as Wilson struggled for 355 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions to a 20-of-41 passing performance. However, it is highly unlikely that he will be the one to win this game for New York. Instead, we count on the defense, ie one of the best in the NFLto make things incredibly awkward for Mac Jones and co. on offense. The Jets hold the pats on just one touchdown in this contest, winning a low-scoring affair.

Justin Fields runs 100 yards for the third straight year

In his last four games, Justin Fields has rushed 14 times for 82 yards and a touchdown, eight times for 60 yards and a touchdown, 15 times for 178 yards and a touchdown, and 13 times for 147 yards and two touchdowns. All in all, that’s 50 carries for 467 yards and five points. That’s 9.34 yards per carry and 12.5 dead for 116.8 yards per game.

His opponent in week 11, the Atlanta Falcons, ranks 25th in the Rushing DVOA at Football Outsiders. According to Tru Media, Atlanta has only experienced five drafted quarterback runs this season, but those games have rushed for 101 yards and a touchdown. They’ve also faced just seven scrambles from opposing quarterbacks this season, so they may not be prepared for what Fields has in store for them in that department.

Pollard is very obvious the cowboys‘ Best to run back. This is obvious to anyone outside of the Jones family. The problem with this is that the Jones family owns the Cowboys and seems to dictate that Elliott should be the center of the game plan. With Zeke appearing ready to return from the knee injury that kept him out of the team’s last two games (in which Pollard averaged 275 yards and four touchdowns on 40 touches, averaging over 6.8 yards per carry and 7, 2 yards per reception), the bet here is that Dallas will allow him to instantly take at least one 1A roll to Pollard’s 1B, to the team’s own detriment.

Kadarius Toney scores on the ground and in the air vs. Charger

Only two games in his bosses Career, Toney is already becoming more and more involved in the offensive. He only played nine snaps in his first game, but that shot up to 28 snaps (44%) last week and could be even higher this week. Mecole Hardman went on injured reserve earlier this week, JuJu Smith-Schuster may or may not clear concussion protocol in time for this game, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling is dealing with illness.

Toney is a versatile threat, and Andy Reid loves nothing more than getting creative when scoring territory. With four receptions for 57 yards and one score and two carries for 33 yards on his 28 snaps a week ago, Toney could be poised to find the end zone in a variety of ways against a Sunday Night Football division rival.
