Football Today: 2012 NFC West Week 11
By Mike Sando
Ross Tucker, Matt Williamson and Jay Soderberg are back with their weekly NFL predictions on the latest Football Today podcast for Week 11.
I've been singling out NFC West-related highlights for those interested. The full podcast is worth a listen as well.
- 16:20 mark: Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons. Williamson likes the Cardinals' matchup against the Falcons' offense, particularly up front. But Arizona's anticipated difficulties protecting the passer in a domed stadium on the road raises obvious concerns. Williamson and Tucker are not predicting Falcons blowouts.
- 24:07: New York Jets at St. Louis Rams. Williamson thinks the Rams' defense can hold the Jets in the 10-point range. He also thinks Jets corner Antonio Cromartie, though outstanding, doesn't match up well with Danny Amendola. The Rams' offense impressed Tucker at San Francisco.
- 35:13: Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers. Tucker likes the Bears for the consistency of their defense. He doesn't like the way San Francisco's defense played against the Rams. Williamson thinks the Bears' backup quarterback, Jason Campbell, can avoid turnovers. He can't wait to see the 49ers' offensive line against the Bears' defensive front, but he thinks Chicago's D-line has the quickness to give San Francisco problems.
Tucker, Williamson and Soderberg pick outcomes for all games in Week 11.
