Our week eleven NFL picks VS the spread with guest picker @WoodyRoseland

Written by

Week eleven in the NFL gets underway tonight. Time sure flies, don't it?

Our pickers in our Annual NFL Pickoff VS the Spread,  Colin, John Reidy, Our Buddy Snyder and   Producer Scott Stafford continue to slug it out in what remains a relatively close contest. Snyder currently holds a the lead, as he has for three weeks now. It's unlikely that any of our pickers will create any separation this week, as all four picked this week's games pretty similarly.

This week we welcome Woody Roseland, a future guest on the South Stands Denver Fancast, as our guest picker. Woody is some kind of badass, and amputee, a helluva comedian, a cancer activist and a force for good in our Community. Most of us first got to know Woody when he played catch with Jeremy Guthrie. You can visit Woody's web site RIGHT FRIGGIN' HERE.

Our picks are "after the jump" (we stole that term from Deadspin)

Miami @ Buffalo (-1.5)

The Dolphins got their fins handed to them by the Titans in week ten, but despite that, roll into Buffalo on Thursday night getting only 1.5 points. Considering that 3 points is pretty much automatic for home teams, Vegas must not think real highly of the Bills. It’s yet another disappointing TNF match up for NFL Network.

Colin’s pick: Buffalo -1.5

Reidy's pick: Buffalo -1.5

Snyder’s pick: Buffalo -1.5

Scott’s pick: Buffalo -1.5

Woody’s pick: Miami +1.5

Philadelphia @ Washington (-3.5)

A pair of rookie QBs will get the start in this NFC East clash early Sunday. Nick Foles, forced into duty by a Michael Vick concussion, will make his first start as a pro while Robert Griffin III comes off the bye to continue his impressive rookie campaign.

Colin’s pick: Washington -3.5

Reidy's pick: Washington -3.5

Snyder’s pick: Washington -3.5

Scott’s pick: Washington -3.5

Woody’s pick: Washington -3.5

Detroit VS Green Bay (-3.5)

The Packers, who took last week off, head to the Motor City Sunday to face the Lions, who need to take down their feared division foe if they want to remain a relevant contender. Can Matthew Stafford and friends rise to the occasion in front of their home fans?

Colin’s pick: Green Bay -3.5

Reidy's pick: Green Bay -3.5

Snyder’s pick: Green Bay -3.5

Scott’s pick: Green Bay -3.5

Woody’s pick: Green Bay -3.5

Arizona @ Atlanta (-10)

The Falcons are finally mortal, having surrendered their first loss of the season to the Saints last week. They look to return to their winning ways against the Cardinals this week. Arizona has done as poor a job as any team protecting their quarterbacks so far this season. Still, they can put up some points.

Colin’s pick: Arizona +10

Reidy's pick: Arizona +10

Snyder’s pick: Atlanta -10

Scott’s pick: Atlanta -10

Woody’s pick: Atlanta -10

Carolina VS Tampa Bay (-1.5)

Super Cam and the Panthers were exposed and embarrassed by the Denver Broncos in week ten. This week they’re at home once again to face yet another potent offense. This time Josh Freeman and the surging Bucs visit Charlotte hoping to break out some sack dances of their own.

Colin’s pick: Tampa Bay -1.5

Reidy's pick: Tampa Bay -1.5

Snyder’s pick: Tampa Bay -1.5

Scott’s pick: Tampa Bay -1.5

Woody’s pick: Carolina +1.5

Cleveland @ Dallas (-7.5)

Don’t look now, but the Cowboys might matter. With the recent struggles on the NY Giants offense, Dallas has a decent chance to win their division. But they have to win the easy ones – and hosting Cleveland should be easy. They’re favored by a touchdown plus a half-point “hook”.

Colin’s pick: Dallas -7.5

Reidy's pick: Cleveland +7.5

Snyder’s pick: Cleveland +7.5

Scott’s pick: Cleveland +7.5

Woody’s pick: Dallas -7.5

NY Jets @ St. Louis (-3)

The Rams have a rare tie on their record for 2012 after a frustrating sister-kissing on Sunday night in week ten. The Jets, on the other hand, would be lucky to earn a tie most weeks. They just keep losing. This week Rex Ryan takes his shit show to the Midwest where he will probably still barely play Tim Tebow.

Colin’s pick: The Danny Amendola's -3

Reidy's pick: The Danny Amendola's -3

Snyder’s pick: The Danny Amendola's -3

Scott’s pick: The Danny Amendola's -3

Woody’s pick: The Danny Amendola's -3

Indianapolis @ New England (-9)

The Colts coming into New England was always big news during the Peyton Manning era. This Sunday’s match up won’t feature Peyton VS Brady like previous ones between these two teams have, but Andrew Luck has been sensational, too. Can he lead his troops to an upset at Gillette Stadium? If he can, it will propel the Colts into the thick of the playoff chase.

Colin’s pick: New England -9

Reidy's pick: Indianapolis +9

Snyder’s pick: New England -9

Scott’s pick: Indianapolis +9

Woody’s pick: New England -9

Jacksonville @ Houston (-15.5)

Surprise! This is the biggest line of the NFL season thus far. Go figure.

Colin’s pick: Jacksonville +15.5

Reidy's pick: Houston -15.5

Snyder’s pick: Houston -15.5

Scott’s pick: Jacksonville +15.5

Woody’s pick: Houston -15.5

Kansas City VS Cincinnati (-3.5)

Ouch. Things can’t be going well for Kansas City when they’re underdogs at home to the Bengals. The Chiefs are so lousy that it wouldn’t be shocking to see them start throwing games to secure the #1 draft pick. They’ve shown no signs of quitting, though. They had a shot as recently as Monday night to upset the Steelers in overtime.

Colin’s pick: Kansas City +3.5

Reidy's pick: Cincinnati -3.5

Snyder’s pick: Cincinnati -3.5

Scott’s pick: Cincinnati -3.5

Woody’s pick: Cincinnati -3.5

Oakland VS New Orleans (-4.5)

The Saints have their mojo back, or so it would seem. After a rocky start, they believe they are still a playoff team. They have to beat Oakland, though. The Raiders, who are big home dogs, are playing only for pride – which they have plenty off despite having a tough season.

Colin’s pick: Oakland +4.5

Reidy's pick: New Orleans -4.5

Snyder’s pick: New Orleans -4.5

Scott’s pick: New Orleans -4.5

Woody’s pick: New Orleans -4.5

San Diego @ Denver (-7.5)

The Chargers’ season is on life support after last weeks loss to the Bucks. At 4-6 they are at risk of being left behind by the Broncos. If they can come to Mile High and win this one, though, they can narrow the gap and get themselves back in the hunt. Denver’s a big favorite – by a touchdown plus a hook. Hopefully, they’ll score in the first half this time.

Colin’s pick: Denver -7.5

Reidy's pick: San Diego +7.5 (Broncos will win so SHUT UP)

Snyder’s pick: Denver -7.5

Scott’s pick: Denver -7.5

Woody’s pick: Denver -7.5

Pittsburgh VS Baltimore (-3)

What’s this!? The Ravens are road favorites at Heinz Field!? This unlikely scenario is brought to you by an injured Ben Roethlisberger. This AFC North battle won’t have quite the same shine on Sunday Night as it otherwise might have had.

Colin’s pick: Baltimore -3

Reidy's pick: Valdemort -3

Snyder’s pick: Baltimore -3

Scott’s pick: Baltimore -3

Woody’s pick: Baltimore -3

Chicago @ San Francisco (-5)

Two NFL powerhouses with Super Bowl aspirations face off on Monday night and it’s very possible that neither will have its starting QB. Jay Cutler is all but ruled out for the Bears, and Alex Smith might not play either. Both players sustained concussions in week ten. This possible NFL Championship preview, like the Sunday night game, won’t have quite the luster it should have had.

Colin’s pick: San Francisco -5

Reidy's pick: San Francisco -5

Snyder’s pick: San Francisco -5

Scott’s pick: San Francisco -5

Woody’s pick: San Francisco -5
