NFL Pick 'Em Week 11: Miami 2-Game Winning Streak Edition: Week 11 of the NFL begins tonight when the Steelers face the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium. There's carnage up and down our standings, with only Rumple's 34 looking respectable. Jagsnumberone stays in first despite a -2 week, Cixelsyd keeps second 11 back and Tron7 third 31 behind. If you forgot to make picks you beat five players, including myself at -15. Make your selections.

Vegas, 538, and Yahoo Pick 'Em agree on everything this week, though Nate Silver's ELO has tonight's game as a 50/50. I'm picking upsets by Cleveland, Jacksonville and Philadelphia (over New England) while hoping Texans/Ravens is on locally. That showdown could be special.

The line on Cardinals at 49ers has moved from -14 to -10.5. Seems like a lot when there's no big injury news.

49ers starters TE Kittle, WR Sanders are out; LT Staley, and RB Breida also likely out. Next 2 TEs on the depth chart are listed as not practicing this week .. nobody left in the passing game. Also, Arizona has won 9 of the last 10 games between the teams. Anyone who lays on 49ers @ -14 or even -10.5 is a fool.

About last week's picks: YGBSM. This was the acronym on the shoulder patch of aircrews who flew the Wild Weasel (flak suppression) missions over North Vietnam. Here's a hint: It stands for You Gotta Be....Me. I survived the mission, but not without damage.

Somewhat improved Steelers vs the overrated Browns. Pittsburgh by 9

That will be quite enough out of you, Flipper. Buffalo by 12

D stands for Denver stands for defense. M stands for Minnesota stands for nothing in particular. Minnesota by 13

More cities starting with the letter D. Howard, are you binge watching Sesame Street episodes? Dallas by 8

Hugely disappointing Falcons meet somewhat disappointing Panthers. Carolina by 9

Why Colts have been included in the AFC South is beyond me. It makes no sense geographically. Indianapolis by 11

The odor emanating from the DC area is not coming from Capital Hill for a change. It's coming from Landover, MD. New York (dog-assed Jets) by 3

East on I-10, then south on I-75 should bring Saints to a win. New Orleans by 14

Houston might have a problem, but there could be a bigger one for the Ravens. Houston by 4

I thought I saw something in both teams last week. It was a mirage. San Francisco by 16

Cincinnati, you're on the clock. Oakland by 14

Teams named for birds give the Patriots trouble. New England by 11

Rams need a wakeup call. Bears could help. Los Angeles (National Conference) by 15

The stumbling Chiefs meet the Chargers who are rapidly descending to a level slightly below mediocrity. Kansas City by 12

Howard--I'm the son of an old F-100 pilot. One of his dear friends from high school and the USAF, a man I grew up around, was a Wild Weasel. As we walked onto the grounds of Stead Air Base outside of Reno one day, we came upon an F-105 displayed outside the gate. Ed said, kind of offhand, "hey, I flew that plane." I asked, "oh, you flew the F-105?," to which he replied, "yeah, but I mean I flew that specific plane." Turns out it was his old mount that had been put out to stud. Anyhow...
