Week 10 of 2012 NFL regular season was one of the least competitive weeks of the year, with nine games decided by at least 10 points. Week 11 is expected to be different, with just two double-digit point spreads on the schedule.
The first game of the week is projected to be the closest of them all. The Dolphins are 1.5-point underdogs in Buffalo on Thursday Night Football. It’s the first time that the two division rivals are facing each other this year.
The other primetime games could be two of the more interesting matchups of the week, but a lot depends on the health of the starting quarterbacks.
The Ravens visit the Steelers in a battle for supremacy in the AFC North on Sunday Night Football. Pittsburgh opened up as favorites, but that was before Ben Roethlisberger injured himself against the Chiefs. A source tells ESPN that the two-time Super Bowl Champion could miss a few games with a shoulder injury.
The Monday Night Football game features two teams that are vying for the best record in the NFC. The Bears are getting five points in San Francisco. Jay Cutler might be forced to sit, after suffering a concussion against the Texans.
Coming off maybe their best win of the year, Houston is set to play, possibly, its easiest game of the year. They are giving 16 points to the visiting Jaguars. It’s the biggest betting line of the 2012 season.
Peyton Manning and the Broncos are big favorites, once again. Denver is giving San Diego 7.5 points, as they look to extend their AFC West lead to three games.
The Giants, Titans, Vikings and Seahawks are off. It’s the last week of the season that any team will have a bye.
