Walker's AFC North picks

The AFC North went winless. But the AFC North blog was .500 during a tough Week 10 for the division.

It's just a matter of time before we get on a nice run -- and this could be the week. Here are our picks for Week 11 (all times are ET):

Baltimore Ravens (6-3) at Carolina Panthers (1-8), Sunday 1 p.m.

Skinny: It's a bit unfair to give Baltimore a mini-bye week to prepare for struggling Carolina, which has major injuries at quarterback and running back.

Pick: Ravens, 26-7

Oakland Raiders (5-4) at Pittsburgh Steelers (6-3), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: This is a scary game for the struggling Steelers, who is 1-2 in their past three games. Pittsburgh has trouble with great passing teams, but Oakland isn't one of them.

Pick: Steelers, 23-13

Buffalo Bills (1-8) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-7), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: Although people in Cincinnati won't get to see it, the Bengals will break their NFL-high six-game losing streak.

Pick: Bengals, 20-17

Cleveland Browns (3-6) at Jacksonville Jaguars (5-4), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Skinny: This is one of the toughest games to pick this week. I like the way both teams are playing, but I give the slight edge to the Browns.

Pick: Browns, 21-20

Last week: 2-2

Overall: 18-12

Comment: Did I really pick the AFC North to go 4-0 this weekend? Uh oh.
