DLT's Deadlocks - NFL Picks Week 11 2014

DLT stays consistently average.

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Well, you can say one thing about me, I'm consistent. It might be consistently average, but I am definitely consistent. For the second straight week, I posted right on my average for the season at 61%. Unfortunately, my upset specials which at one point were coming in at a surprising 41% have dropped faster than a Bucs QB with O'neil Cousins as the LT, now at an abysmal 27%. I haven't got one of those right since week 7 so buyer beware.

Let's see if we can get off average this week.

Last Week: 8-5 61% Upset Specials 0-2 0%

Season: 90-57 61% Upset Specials: 5-13 27%

Byes: Cowboys, Jets, Jaguars, Ravens

Thursday Night

Dolphins 23, Bills 20 - Two surprisingly decent teams square off on TNF. Even with Tannehill banged up, I think I'm going to go with the home team here.

Sunday Night

Bears 26, Vikings 13 - The Bears are a dumpster fire right now. Allegations of the team quitting against Green Bay can't be good for Marc Trestman and Phil Emery's future. This is really a must win for those two guys.

Browns 24, Texans 17 - Could it be? The Cleveland Browns may actually be a solid contender for the post-season? And Satan is looking for a winter coat? Oh boy, let me check my Zombie survival pack.

Upset Special: Seahawks 27, Chiefs 20 - Yeah, I know. I'm cheating a bit. But I need a dang upset special win and the oddsmakers made Seattle the underdog. Of course, KC will probably win.

Panthers 26, Falcons 20 - The Putty Tats looked absolutely dreadful on Monday Night Football while the FAILcons beat up on hapless Tampa Bay. The Falcs are undefeated against the NFC South...until Sunday.

Bengals 28, Saints 24 - Andy Dalton has had to hear about how much he sucks for the last 10 days. Good news Andy, the Saints defense is like a slump buster. Just jump on that ugly thing and go to work!

Washington 30, Buccaneers 17 - Don't win one iota and get Mariotta. Come on gang, let's come up with our "Suck for Luck" type slogans for MM and Crabby!

Broncos 45, Rams 13 - One of the bright spots for the Scams this season is the play of Austin Davis...what? They benched him? Well, crap.

49ers 20, Giants 14 - The Niners won ugly but found a way to end the Saints dominance at home. They won't need to work as hard against the G-men.

Upset Special #2 Raiders 27, Chargers 17 - The Raiders have to win at least ONE this year and San Diego is taking a late season nose dive.

Packers 30, Eagles 24 - I just refuse to believe in Mark Sanchez...except for my fantasy league. He's money in the bank.

Upset special #3 Lions 26, Cardinals 20 - Three upset specials in a week? I must be nuts. I've been riding Arizona all season but I'm afraid it's not in the Cards this week.

Sunday Night

Patriots 30, Colts 24 - It really is amazing isn't it? It doesn't matter what he has around him, Brady just wins, wins and wins some more.

Monday Night

Steelers 34, Titans 20 - Pittsburgh has had a tendency to play down to their opponent, losing to the putrid Bucs and the godawful Jets. But even they can't lose to the Flaming Thumbtacks, right?
