NFL picks for Week 11 are streaming in and lots and lots of people are picking the Kansas City Chiefs to beat the Arizona Cardinals at Arrowhead Stadium Sunday. The Chiefs enter the game at 5-4, losers of two in a row, while the Cardinals enter the game at 3-6, losers of four in a row.
ESPN has released their Week 11 NFL picks and everyone has picked the Chiefs to beat the Cardinals. That's the analysts, plus the computer-simulation (Accuscore) and the fans pick 'em contest. ESPN is unanimous in six of the games this week but everyone likes the Chiefs.
The Chiefs hold so many advantages in this game. The Cardinals are in the bottom third of the league in every major category -- last in defense, too -- and the Chiefs sit right in the middle of the pack in many of those categories.
The Chiefs running game has been missing for two consecutive games so that will likely be the first thing KC does -- establish the run. If they can run the ball, then it's all over for the Cardinals. But if they can't...then this all of a sudden becomes a tight game.
The Chiefs are eight point favorites in Vegas and I imagine that's pretty accurate. KC is simply a better team and they're 4-0 at home. KC will take this one and cover the spread.
