Another week of NFL picks and predictions, another week of unpredictability. What a wild week it was in Week 10 action of the 2022 NFL season, right? The Minnesota Vikings have continued to defy the odds, going on the road and getting a win against the Buffalo Bills.
The Green Bay Packers had a stunning comeback against the Dallas Cowboys, one of the best defenses in the league. The Colt McCoy-led Arizona Cardinals got a victory. The Las Vegas Raiders fell to Jeff Saturday in his professional head coaching debut.
It was just an all-around stunning weekend and my picks reflected that. It was easily my worst week of NFL picks and predictions all season with a record of 4-9 going into Monday night’s game between the Eagles and Commanders.
Teams on Week 11 bye: Seahawks, Dolphins, Buccaneers, Jaguars
2022 NFL picks and predictions for Week 11
Tennessee Titans (6-3) at Green Bay Packers (4-6)
Thursday, November 17, 8:15 PM ET
What a stunning victory on Sunday afternoon for the Packers as they made a comeback against one of the top overall defensive units in the entire league. Aaron Rodgers found a way to get the Packers’ passing game going despite attempting just 20 passes and completing only 14 of them. Among his 14 completed passes against the Cowboys on Sunday were three touchdowns to rookie receiver Christian Watson.
It was a desperately needed breakout performance from Watson and a desperately needed win at home for the Packers, who get to stay home this week against the rugged 6-3 Tennessee Titans.
The Titans may not win pretty, and they may not make a lot of highlight reels, but they are tough as nails under Mike Vrabel and they showed some resilience this weekend against the Denver Broncos. Facing a 10-0 deficit, the Titans scored 17 unanswered points and shut the Broncos down in the second half, notching their sixth win of the season.
As these two teams collide, you tend to buy in a little more to Aaron Rodgers keeping things going at home, even against a tougher defense. I think I’m taking the Packers on a short week here.
Prediction: Packers win 24-18
