Battle Red Blazin' Hot NFL Picks: Week 11 - Thanks For Nothing, Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars almost single-handedly ended our Survival league, thanks to their upset win over the Tennessee Titans. Still, there's plenty to talk about with this week's slate of games. Catch Battle Red Blog's picks... brought to you by Buffalo Wild Wings.

Yep, your team lost to the Jaguars.

Upset picks of Minnesota, Carolina and Tampa Bay helped launch me into the Top 10. Praise Durga! It was a long journey, and it was certainly aided by the 50 or so players who went inactive, but I'm not complaining.

Jacksonville made fools of us all by defeating Tennessee last Sunday. Perhaps we should have seen it coming as Tennessee was the last team to lose to Jacksonville, going back to 2012.

Here's the updated Top 10 featuring Eggshellman sitting up top with a 3 point lead.

Rank Pick Set Name Total Dropped W-L
1 Eggshellman 92 7 92-41
2 erikhayden 89 6 89-45
3 Swikky 89 5 89-44
4 STEELBLUE 89 6 89-44
5 Cake 88 6 88-45
6 bruinballer 88 7 88-45
7 goomba 88 7 88-45
8 oiler-texan diehard 87 7 87-46
9 Wade's World 87 5 87-46
10 Corzo 86 7 86-48

Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans

The Colts are coming off a humiliating loss against St. Louis and seem to have serious problems on their offensive and defensive lines. Despite all this, Tennessee literally lost against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.

New York Jets @ Buffalo Bills

Baltimore Ravens @ Chicago Bears

Cleveland Browns @ Cincinnati Bengals

Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles

Detroit Lions @ Pittsburgh Steelers

Atlanta Falcons @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Semi-upset alert? Greg Schiano's team is playing with nothing to lose and has a talented front seven that should make life hell for Matt Ryan.

Arizona Cardinals @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Oakland Raiders @ Houston Texans

There's absolutely no reason the Texans should lose this matchup. Oakland is below average across most of its roster and Terrelle Pryor has an injured knee. I mentioned on BRR that SOMEONE on the team still has to be upset over the loss the Texans endured after Al Davis passed away.

San Diego Chargers @ Miami Dolphins

San Francisco 49ers @ New Orleans Saints

Green Bay Packers @ New York Giants

Minnesota Vikings @ Seattle Seahawks

Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos

There's no one better at neutralizing a defense's strengths than Peyton Manning. Despite a bum ankle, you can bet he'll make the Chiefs regret blitzing him heavily. Kansas City simply hasn't faced a team nearly as good as Denver right now.

New England Patriots @ Carolina Panthers

I expect the Panthers to officially "debut" as a contender on primetime TV with a win over the Patriots. New England is missing quite a few players defensively and should give Carolina's potent running attack a few lanes to run through.

Survival League Results:

The Jacksonville Jaguars doomed our Survival League and created a 13-way tie for 1st place. Kinda feels like winning the lottery only to find out that you're one of 172 people to win it. One reader picked Indianapolis over St. Louis and that didn't work out so great either. Here are the champs:
