    Opening Line Report - Week 11
    November 13, 2017


    Here are the early betting numbers for Week 11 of the 2017 NFL season. Point-spreads are the Las Vegas consensus as of Monday at noon, and totals are from William Hill U.S.

    Thursday, Nov. 16

    Tennessee Titans at Pittsburg Steelers (-7 even, 44)


    While the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook opened Pittsburgh -6.5 before a quick move to -7 and then to -7 (even), CG Technology took a limit bet of $3,000 from a respected player on Tennessee +7, prompting a move to +7 (-120), according to Jason Simbal, vice president of risk at CG.

    Sunday, Nov. 19

    Detroit Lions (-3, 42) at Chicago Bears


    Like for the Thursday nighter discussed above, early sharp money showed up on the 'dog at CG for this NFC North clash. The book moved from Bears +3 to +3 (-120) after that bet, Simbal said.

    Kansas City Chiefs (-11, 44) at New York Giants

    Las Vegas’ first number on this game of Kansas City -13.5, hung at the Westgate, was bet down to -11.5 within 20 minutes Sunday night and to -11 on Monday morning. Westgatemanager Ed Salmons said that numbers from his shop’s group of oddsmakers ranged from 10.5 to 13.5, and they weren’t concerned about early money that came in on the huge home underdog.

    “We decided with Andy Reid’s record off the bye to use the high end,” Salmons said of the Westgate’s opening line. “If we write a couple of dollars now on the Giants, it will probably be about the only money we write on the Giants.”

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Miami Dolphins (-3)

    CG Tech inched from Miami -3 down to -3 (even) during early action, and the number is as cheap as -2.5 at some offshore locales.

    Baltimore Ravens (-2.5, 38) at Green Bay Packers


    The Westgate hung Baltimore -3 (even) and moved Sunday night to -2.5, the number at which most Vegas shops opened. While the Packers on Sunday got their first win with backup quarterback Brett Hundley, 23-16 at Chicago, Simbal believes the Ravens are deserving of the road favorite status in this spot, at least based on the lack of early action.

    “We’ll find out soon enough if they bet it,” he said. “I would think yes, because that was not one of the games that they hit right away. If the number was that much off, these guys would have bet it, if not at our place, then somewhere else.”

    Los Angeles Rams at Minnesota Vikings (-2.5, 46)

    The line at the Westgate for this key NFC showdown seesawed from Minnesota -2.5 to -1.5 and back to -2.5 in early wagering at the Westgate. A line south of 3 indicates the Rams are rated by the betting market as a better team than the Vikings, a notion Simbal isn’t sure he buys.

    “I kind of like what the Vikings have going on more than the Rams, but I’m probably in the minority there,” Simbal said. “I’d be hesitant to take the Rams in this spot. It seems to be a better spot for the Vikings than the Rams.”

    Simbal’s opinion is partly based on Sunday’s games, as the Vikings gave up 30 points at Washington but still coasted to a win, while it took the Rams more than half the game to get going at home against the Texans.

    “The Rams covered easily today, but they weren’t great until the middle of the third quarter,” Simbal said.

    While Los Angeles’ 32.9 points per game is tops in the NFL, Salmons said we’re about to learn more about the Rams. After next Sunday’s game at Minnesota, they host the red-hot Saints in Week 12.

    “It’s obvious that all the Rams do is score a lot of points and win. They’ve been doing it for a long time now. But a lot of times it’s against bad competition, so this will be the first real test for them,” Salmons said of their upcoming game at Minnesota. “They’re going into probably the hardest environment they’ve been in this year. Minnesota’s going to have a jacked up crowd, so we’ll see how good the Rams are, but they’re getting a ton of respect with this point-spread.”

    Arizona Cardinals (-1.5) at Houston Texans

    While CG opened Arizona -1.5 and moved to -1 on Sunday night, William Hill U.S. opened pick ‘em and moved to Arizona -1.5. Seems Cardinals backup quarterback Drew Stanton is getting more respect than the Texans’ Tom Savage.

    Jacksonville Jaguars (-7.5, 38) at Cleveland Browns

    The Wynn opened Jacksonville -8 but joined the rest of the crowd at -7.5 within the first few minutes of wagering Sunday night. No matter how many points bookmakers are gifting the home 'dog, it takes gumption to back the Browns, who are not only winless but have cashed just twice all season.

    Washington Redskins at New Orleans Saints (-7.5, 51)

    There have been Washington +8s that have showed up on Vegas boards (Coasts, Westgate), but those opportunities have been snapped up by underdog bettors.

    Buffalo Bills at Los Angeles Chargers (-4., 44)

    While most shops remain at Chargers -4, the Wynn moved from -4 to -4.5 on Sunday night. After two straight duds, the Bills’ record has dropped to 5-4. The Chargers’ 3-6 record, meanwhile, is misleading, according to Salmons, who puts their defense among the best in the NFL.

    “The Chargers defense is so good right now, it’s ridiculous how good they are,” Salmons said, “and this team continues to lose in ways that are just impossible. They’re 3-6, and they easily, easily could be 7-2 or 8-1. That team has so much talent, it’s just absurd, and they’re 3-6, which is a joke.”

    Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos (-2.5/-120, 40)

    The Westgate opened Denver -2.5 (-120) and moved to -3 on Sunday, before the Broncos’ latest in a long string of disasters – a 41-16 primetime loss at home to New England. The shop reopened Denver -2.5 on Monday morning with a return to -2.5 (-120), the original number, about 90 minutes later.

    New England Patriots (-5.5, 51) vs. Oakland Raiders (at Mexico City)

    This is the matchup many of us were anticipating and hoping for in the AFC playoffs last season, but Derek Carr’s injury eased the Patriots’ path. The Raiders aren’t in nearly the form they were in then, but coming off a bye and facing a team playing their second straight road game figures to benefit Oakland.

    “It’s about as good as a spot as you can get for a team, so it sets up well for Oakland,” Salmons said.

    As we spoke during the first quarter of the Pats’ blowout win in Denver on Sunday night, Salmons added, “New England’s not the same team they’ve been, even if they win tonight. When you watch them, you just know there’s something wrong, it’s obvious.”

    Said Simbal, “I still think it’s going to be all Patriots money with the public. The public has been backing the Patriots slowly but surely the last three, four weeks, and they’ve cashed most of them.”

    While the notion Simbal puts forth portends the line growing ahead of kickoff in Mexico City, William Hill is dealing Pats -6.

    Philadelphia Eagles (-3/-120, 48) at Dallas Cowboys

    Two bets from respected players came in Sunday night laying Philly -3 (-120) at CG, prompting a move to -3 (-125). The Westgate opened Eagles -3.5 with a tweak to -3.5 (even).

    The Cowboys were not only without running back Ezekiel Elliott on Sunday in Atlanta, they were also missing Tyron Smith, one of the best left tackles in the league. QB Dak Prescott was sacked eight times, six by Adrian Clayborn, in the Falcons’ 27-7 win.

    “Dallas looked pretty ordinary on offense today without Zeke and Smith, and the Eagles have been getting so much respect all year,” Simbal said.

    Salmons agreed, “Dallas looked like a different team (Sunday).”

    Monday, Nov. 20

    Seattle Seahawks (-3 even, 45) at Atlanta Falcons


    The Westgate is dealing Seattle -3, but the line is drifting in Atlanta’s direction, sitting Seattle -3 (even) at some shops and -2.5 at Treasure Island.

    While the Seahawks are all kinds of banged up, the Falcons are getting respect with this line, thanks partly to Sunday’s performance against Dallas.

    Even with the win over the Cowboys, Salmons said of Atlanta, “It’s just not the same team as last year. The offense is just not the same. It reminds you of New England – you think they can be what they were last year, but they’re just not.”

    Instead of the Week 11 Monday nighter being a battle at the top of the NFC, it features a pair of teams that figure to be fighting for a wild-card spot as the season nears its end.

    “Once the sharp guys get a sense for where this line may go, then they’ll play around with the number, but to me, this is a tricky one for the public,” Simbal said. “They’re going to have a little trouble figuring out what to do with this one.”

    NFL opening line report: Eagles open as 3.5-point road favorites vs. Cowboys
    Patrick Everson

    “No one would’ve anticipated Dallas being an underdog in this game prior to the season starting, or even a few weeks ago, but here we are.”

    The team at the top of the NFC East is not the one most people expected through 10 weeks of the season. Patrick Everson checks in on the opening line for a key clash involving that team, along with three other Week 11 games, with insights from Scott Cooley, odds consultant for offshore sportsbook Bookmaker.eu.

    Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys (+3.5)

    Philadelphia is certainly one of the top surprise teams of the year, piling up seven consecutive wins en route to the best record in the NFL. The Eagles (8-1 SU, 7-2 ATS) are also coming off their bye week, after dismantling Denver 51-23 as a 7-point favorite in Week 9.

    Dallas, which won the NFC East last year with a 13-3 record, can’t seem to regain that form, and it didn’t get any easier in Week 10 without the now-suspended Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys were 3.5-point underdogs at Atlanta and got rolled 27-7.

    “No one would’ve anticipated Dallas being an underdog in this game prior to the season starting, or even a few weeks ago, but here we are,” Cooley said. “Philadelphia has made leaping strides this season and is well above the Cowboys in our power ratings. As we all know, JerryWorld doesn’t exactly provide a home-field edge, so the Eagles deserved to be above the field-goal threshold. However, I do expect this will close at a field goal.”

    In fact, late Sunday night, the line had already ducked down to 3.

    Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers (-7)

    Pittsburgh was among the preseason favorites in the Super Bowl futures book, but hasn’t looked much the part this season. Yet the Steelers are still 7-2 SU (5-4 ATS), after rallying from a 17-3 deficit to post a 20-17 victory at Indianapolis as a 10.5-pint chalk.

    Like the Steelers, Tennessee (6-3 SU, 3-5-1 ATS) has won four in a row (1-2-1 ATS). The Titans got a last-minute touchdown Sunday to top Cincinnati 24-20, though they fell just short at the betting window as 4.5-point favorites.

    “Marcus Mariota looked like his old self this week, while the Steelers slept-walked through an ugly affair,” Cooley said. “Still, we know this Pittsburgh offense can explode any week, and we know that the public is going to back the Steelers through and through. We’ll likely see some serious sharp money on the road ‘dog.”

    New England Patriots at Oakland Raiders (no line)

    New England is definitely rounding into form heading into this neutral-site clash in Mexico City. The Patriots (7-2 SU, 5-4 ATS) flattened Denver 41-16 in the Sunday nighter, easily cashing as a 7-point road chalk.

    Oakland had a bye in Week 10 and is hoping to climb back to .500 in what many observers thought would be a much better season. The Raiders (4-5 SU, 3-5-1 ATS) edged Miami 27-24 in Week 9, pushing as a 3-point road favorite.

    Since the Patriots were in the Sunday nighter, Bookmaker.eu is holding off on the opening line until Monday.

    “If everything goes accordingly, we’ll look to make the Pats around 6-point chalk,” Cooley said. “Something just isn’t right with the Raiders these days.”

    Atlanta Falcons at Seattle Seahawks (-3)

    In Week 10, Atlanta finally looked a little more like the team that went to the Super Bowl last year. The Falcons (5-4 SU, 3-6 ATS) pulled away from Dallas in the second half for a 27-7 victory laying 3.5 points at home.

    Seattle comes into this Monday night matchup with a little more rest, having played the Week 10 Thursday nighter. In that contest, the Seahawks (6-3 SU, 3-5-1 ATS) held off Arizona 22-16 to push as a 6-point fave. However, Seattle lost superstar cornerback Richard Sherman for the rest of the year, due to a ruptured Achilles tendon.

    “We’re going to find out very quickly how much the Seahawks miss Sherman. My guess is a ton,” Cooley said. “They already had ample offensive deficiencies, and now there’s a gaping hole in the secondary. If not for Russell Wilson, this would be one of the worst teams in the NFL. On the other side, is Atlanta finally hitting its stride?”

    Wiseguys are advising that these Week 11 NFL lines are going to move

    New England is now tied with the Steelers for the best record in the AFC at 7-2, after showing no mercy on Sunday against Denver.

    Each week during the pro football season, Covers Expert Art Aronson of AAA Sports looks at the NFL odds and tells you which spread to bet now, which one to bet later, and which total to watch as the week plays out.

    Game to bet now

    New England at Oakland (+5.5)

    Lots of commentators would like to take back what they said about the Patriots when the Bill Belichick-led club was treading water at 2-2. New England is now tied with the Steelers for the best record in the AFC at 7-2, after showing no mercy on Sunday against Denver, and now will get the benefit of a neutral field (Mexico City) in a “road” game against the Raiders.

    It’s good to be the king, no? And the Patriots are doing this (five straight wins, three straight covers) with several key players out. It doesn’t seem to matter, as long as their 40-year-old quarterback is upright. NE will start to attract lots of money as the season winds down, and anything under seven is an attractive number.

    Game to wait on

    Los Angeles Rams at Minnesota (-2.5)

    It used to be you could pencil in the Packers to win the NFC North, but Aaron Rodgers’s injury has opened a large door for the Vikings, and Minny has taken full advantage with five straight wins.

    The Vikes have a great opportunity to nail down the division over a five-day period starting Sunday against the Rams. A win, coupled with a victory over Detroit on Thanksgiving, could just about lock down the North.

    And they’re doing it with re-tread QB Case Keenum, who threw for 302 yards and four TDs in the Vikings’ win over Washington on Sunday. If you like the Rams in this one, hang on because bettors will probably jump at 2.5 and some lines will be bet up to a full field goal.

    Total to watch

    Tennessee at Pittsburgh (44)

    Huge game for both division leaders. The Steelers need to keep pace with the red-hot Patriots ahead of their mid-December showdown in Pittsburgh, and the Titans are desperate to get the Jaguars off their backs in a surprising AFC South race (they’re both 6-3).

    While Pittsburgh and Tennessee are both solid and winning, neither has had an offensive burst in the last month. The Titans are averaging under 20 points in their last three games, while Pittsburgh has averaged 22 in its last four.

    Turnovers decide a lot of games in the NFL – especially close games – so expect both teams to keep things pretty conservative in this one. Even at a moderate number like 44, the Under deserves a hard look in this one.

    NFL's biggest betting mismatches: Week 11
    Monty Andrews

    The Jacksonville Jaguars have intercepted opponents 11 times this season and have 19 takeaways on the season. No one has turned the ball over more than the Cleveland Browns this season.

    Baltimore Ravens at Green Bay Packers (+2, 38)

    Ravens' ruthless pass rush vs. Packers' poor O-line play

    You might see the Ravens sitting in the middle of the pack in sacks (22) and wonder how this pass rush could be considered among the elite. A closer look reveals that Baltimore ranks 12th in sack rate (7.24 percent) and has forced a league-high 13 interceptions, leading to an NFL-best 270 interception return yards and two returns for touchdowns. Baltimore is coming off a three-sack effort in last week's 23-20 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

    The Packers have already lost one quarterback to injury this season, and will need to do a better job of protecting the backup. Green Bay is one of only six teams to have already surrendered at least 30 sacks, and its 8.7-percent sack rate against is fifth-worst in the NFL.

    Brett Hundley was taken down three times for a total of 30 yards lost in last week's victory over Chicago, and could be in for a long afternoon if the Ravens are able to exert their pass-rush dominance over Green Bay's suspect O-line.

    Jacksonville Jaguars at Cleveland Browns (+7.5, 37.5)

    Jaguars' ball-thieving prowess vs. Browns' turnover troubles

    Jacksonville has reeled off three wins in a row, and boasts one of the league's top point differentials at plus-92. Winning turnover battles has played a bit part in the Jaguars' resurgence, and they'll look to continue that success against a Cleveland team struggling to hang onto the ball.

    One year has made all the difference in the world for Jacksonville, in a variety of areas. Turnovers is near the top of that list; after finishing with an abysmal minus-16 turnover differential last season - only the New York Jets and Chicago Bears fared worse - the Jaguars have completed a dramatic 180-degree turn, coming into this week ranked fifth with a plus-7 differential.
    Jacksonville has forced a whopping 18 turnovers (11 interceptions, seven fumble recoveries); only the Los Angeles Rams have more.

    Things aren't nearly as rosy for the woeful Browns, who once again own one of the league's worst turnover ratios. Cleveland comes into Week 11 with a dismal minus-13 turnover differential, ahead of only the Denver Broncos. Interceptions have been the biggest issue for the Browns; they've been picked off 18 times already in 2017, five more than the next closest team.

    Look for that total - and the overall differential - to climb against one of the top secondaries in the league.

    Cincinnati Bengals at Denver Broncos (-2.5, 39.5)

    Bengals' red-zone rejections vs. Broncos' bungling down-field offense

    Two of the league's most disappointing teams face off in Colorado this weekend as the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Denver Broncos. Both teams had high hopes coming into the season, but injuries and ineffectiveness on both rosters have them carrying identical 3-6 records into this one. Denver's biggest problem has been an inability to convert red-zone visits into points - and it just so happens that Cincinnati, despite its struggles, has been one of the league's top teams at preventing red-zone scores.

    Only the Los Angeles Chargers have been better at keeping opponents from turning red-zone opportunities into touchdowns than the Bengals, who have limited foes to a 38.7-percent success rate on the season.

    It's a dramatic improvement from the 51-percent TD rate opponents boasted vs. Cincinnati a season ago. The Bengals are also allowing just 1.3 touchdowns on red-zone visits per game so far this season, the eighth-best rate in the NFL.

    Denver's red-zone offense was an area of concern last season, when the Broncos produced touchdowns on just 46.8 percent of their trips inside the opponents' 20-yard line - the fifth-worst rate in the league. But things are even worse in 2017, with Denver scoring TDs on 43.3 percent of red-zone visits; only Pittsburgh and Indianapolis have been less prolific.

    An inconsistent running game and terrible QB play have contributed - and if neither improves Sunday, expect more frustration in the Mile High State.

    Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys (+3.5, 48.5)

    Cowboys' dismal third-down D vs. Eagles' drive-extension mastery

    The marquee matchup of Week 11 pits the NFC-leading Eagles against the rival Cowboys, who struggled mightily without standout offensive lineman Tyron Smith last week.

    Dallas yielded eight sacks in the loss to the Atlanta Falcons, and need a win this week to remain in the hunt for the NFC East crown. But the red-hot Eagles have won seven consecutive games and have a significant advantage against the Cowboys when it comes to third-down situations.

    Philadelphia has done just about everything well so far this season, which explains why they're the class of the conference through 10 weeks. But the Eagles have been particularly good when it comes to converting third downs, doing so at a 46.8-percent clip so far - behind only the Rams and Carolina Panthers. It's a major reason why Philadelphia ranks second behind the Panthers in time of possession, controlling the football for an average of 33 minutes, 12 seconds per game.

    The Cowboys' problems on the offensive side of the ball - in addition to Smith, they're without franchise running back Ezekiel Elliott due to suspension - have garnered the majority of the headlines. But bettors shouldn't ignore the fact that the Dallas defense has allowed teams to extend drives or score on 43.5 percent of their third-down opportunities - the sixth-worst rate in the NFL.

    The Eagles are one of the most dangerous teams in football - and the Cowboys can't afford to let them hold on to the ball.

    Thursday Night Football Betting Preview and Odds: Titans at Steelers
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers (-7, 44)

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have not looked the part of a dominant team but they keep finding ways to win and are tied with the New England Patriots for the best record in the AFC. The Steelers will go for their fifth consecutive victory when they host the visiting Tennessee Titans on Thursday night in a matchup of division leaders.

    Pittsburgh extended its winning streak in dramatic fashion, rallying from a 14-point deficit in the second half to beat Indianapolis 20-17 on a last-second field goal by Chris Boswell. "There was a lot of negativity that we will talk about," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said after his team improved to 5-1 on the road. "But we'll talk about negativity with a win. That's my preference." The Titans also have won four in a row to join Jacksonville atop the AFC South, rallying for a last-minute 24-20 win over Cincinnati -- its third straight victory over an AFC North rival of Pittsburgh. "I use the word resilient a lot, but I think that's the makeup of this team," Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey said. "It's amazing that they believe in themselves, they just know we always have a chance to win."

    TV:
    8:25 p.m. ET, NBC, NFL Network.

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Steelers opened as 6.5-point home favorites and as of Wednesday night that number has been bet up slightly to -7. The total hit betting boards at 43.5 and has been bumped up slightly to 44.

    POWER RANKINGS:
    Titans (-1.5) - Steelers (-3.5) + home field (-3) = Steelers -5.

    INJURY REPORT:


    Titans - G Quinton Spain (Probable, Toe), TE Delanie Walker (Probable, Forearm), QB Marcus Mariota (Probable, Ankle), LB Nate Palmer (Questionable, Ankle), LB Aaron Wallace (Questionable, Back), WR Harry Douglas (I-R, Knee), QB Alex Tanney (I-R, Foot), WR Tajae' Sharpe (I-R, Foot), LB Victor Ochi (I-R, Knee).

    Steelers - WR Martavis Bryant (Probable, Illness), LB James Harrison (Questionable, Back), TE Vance McDonald (Questionable, Ankle), S Mike Mitchell (Doubful, Ankle), CB Joe Haden (Out, Leg), CB Cameron Sutton (Questionable, Hamstring), LB Keion Adams (I-R, Shoulder).

    ABOUT THE TITANS (6-3 SU, 3-5-1 ATS, 6-3 O/U):
    Tennessee must find a way to get its offense on track on the road after scoring a combined 36 points in its last three away from home, especially with four of the next five games away from Nashville. Quarterback Marcus Mariota has thrown seven touchdown passes against six interceptions, but he has led three-game winning drives during the winning streak and is coming off a 51-yard rushing day versus Cincinnati. Running back DeMarco Murray scored three TDs in last week's win while backup Derrick Henry added 52 yards on 11 carries. Tennessee has tightened up its rushing defense over the past four games, allowing a combined 277 yards in that span.

    ABOUT THE STEELERS (7-2 SU, 5-4 ATS, 1-8 O/U):
    Ben Roethlisberger owns a completion percentage of 61.1 and passer rating of 83.8 - his lowest marks since the 2008 season - but he rallied Pittsburgh with a pair of scoring passes in the second half last week. Le'Veon Bell, who is averaging 29.5 carries the past four games, leads the league with 840 rushing yards while wideout Antonio Brown has an NFL-best 882 yards, although he has only 12 receptions over the past four games. Rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster continues to thrive with a touchdown catch in each of the past three games. Pittsburgh is second in the league, allowing an average of 16.4, and has held its last four opponents to 17 or fewer.

    TRENDS:


    * Titans are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games in November.
    * Steelers are 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
    * Over is 6-2 in Titans' last 8 games overall.
    * Under is 7-0 in Steelers' last 7 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.
    * Underdog is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

    CONSENSUS:
    The public is siding with the road underdog Titans at a rate of 54 percent and the Over is getting 60 of the totals action

    TNF - Titans at Steelers
    November 16, 2017


    Tennessee at Pittsburgh (-7, 44), 8:30 pm ET, NBC/NFLN


    Marcus Mariota picked up the Titans with his third game-winning drive of the season to defeat Cincinnati last week, taking his team 73 yards in 12 plays. Ben Roethlisberger completed his 40th fourth-quarter comeback after a brutal start against the Colts where the Steelers flirted with disaster by going down 17-3 and entering the fourth quarter down by 8.

    Neither team is playing particularly well, yet lead their division and have a chance to solidify a run at homefield advantage alongside the Patriots. For the Titans, a team that has a negative point differential despite their winning record and four-game winning streak, this is an opportunity to take a huge step forward.

    The Titans' victims on this current run, the Colts, Browns, Ravens and Bengals, all have losing records, yet they've covered only once in the last six games. While they've defeated Seattle at home, beating the Steelers on the road could really provide a psychological boost that would ultimately make the difference in finishing ahead of Jacksonville.

    Mariota has played hurt most of the season -- Tennessee's last loss came in Miami with Matt Cassel at the helm -- and his style is risky since he consistently takes hits, but this is an opportunity to excel with a full compliment of weapons against an excellent defense.

    Receivers Corey Davis and Eric Decker are just now healthy enough to start producing results alongside tight ends Delanie Walker and Jonnu Smith. With Derrick Henry and DeMarco Murray running the ball behind an offensive line that's back intact, they've got a fighting chance to continue improving despite beginning a stretch of four of five on the road.

    Pittsburgh has seen the 'under' prevail in eight of their nine contests. The defense that has helped key this season's success by surrendering 18 or fewer points in seven of nine is fast and really gets after teams. They attack and have shined in the red zone against the likes of Alex Smith and Matthew Stafford, holding Detroit to five field goals. Tennessee has an opportunity to frustrate a Steelers offense that ranks 31st in the red zone, as 80-year-old Dick LeBeau returns to face his long-time former employer.

    Protege Keith Butler has done a great job with the Steelers this season, helping pick up offensive coordinator Todd Haley for his conservative, often crippling approach. Roethlisberger has been off at times this season, but with weapons Antonio Brown and LeVeon Bell both healthy, Pittsburgh has a chance to produce more points.

    Bell ran for over 200 yards the last time these teams got together. Brown has seen rookie Juju Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant step up of late, so Roethlisberger has plenty of options as he looks to continue a run that has seen him win five straight night games, improving a 10-1 mark in primetime. The Steelers will be wearing all black "Color Rush" uniforms and be the sharper-looking group on the field unless you're a big fan of that smurf-looking Titans Blue. A clear crisp night with temperatures in the high 30s is expected.

    Tennessee Titans
    Season win total: 9 (Over -110, Under -110)
    Odds to win AFC South: 10/11 to 5/4
    Odds to win AFC: 15/1 to 15/1
    Odds to win Super Bowl: 30/1 to 30/1

    Pittsburgh Steelers
    Season win total: 10.5 (Over -150, Under +130)
    Odds to win AFC North: 1/60 to Off board
    Odds to win AFC: 3/2 to 9/5
    Odds to win Super Bowl: 4/1 to 4/1


    LINE MOVEMENT

    The Titans (6/5) climbed over the Texans and Colts as the favorites in the AFC South following Week 1 and remain locked in with Jacksonville as near-even money favorites since both enter Week 11 with identical 6-3 records. Pittsburgh opened the regular season as a heavy 2/5 favorite to capture the AFC South, was 1-to-60 entering last week and have seen that number currently come off the board since only a total collapse would prevent them from claiming the division given their three-game edge over Baltimore and a 4-game edge over Cincinnati.

    The Steelers opened the season as a 5/1 choice to win the AFC and were 10/1 to win the Super Bowl, numbers that trailed only the Patriots and Raiders at the time. Their odds have only improved throughout the year as the wins have piled up leaving them as the second choice behind the Patriots. Tennessee opened at 20/1 to win it all and 10/1 to capture the AFC and have seen its odds decrease only slightly.

    As far as this matchup is concerned, the Steelers opened the week as a 7-point favorite and have seen it barely budge. The total opened at 44 and has similarly not moved much. Pittsburgh is a -300 money line favorite, though Westgate has moved it to -350. A Titans outright win pays out in the +250 to +275 range.


    ODDSMAKER'S TAKE


    Scott Cooley of Bookmaker.eu provides info on what his shop is seeing as far as betting trends.

    "Very ho-hum as far as action for TNF thus far. We’ve taken a scant amount of smart money on each side," Cooley said Wednesday. "We briefly dropped to -6.5 but are now back at the open. The public likes Pittsburgh to the tune of 65 percent. The money handle is fairly split at 55-45 in favor of the home squad."

    Bookmaker also has a prop available that has the Steelers +200 to earn the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. The field, which the Titans are obviously a part of, are +2000. New England is the current favorite at -400.

    INJURY CONCERNS

    The Titans are the healthier group here since Marcus Mariota has overcome shoulder and ankle injuries enough to come into this one good to go despite the short week. He'll have guard Quinton Spain back on the starting offensive line after missing time with turf toe. Tight end Delanie Walker (wrist) has also been playing hurt but is also going to be in the mix to help attack the Steelers.

    Pittsburgh's primary area of concern is in its defensive backfield, where CB Joe Haden has been ruled out and safety Mike Mitchell is questionable due to an ankle injury. LB James Harrison may also potentially be sidelined, so the defense might be short-handed.

    RECENT MEETINGS (Pittsburgh 4-2 SU, 2-4 ATS last six; UNDER 3-3)

    11/17/14 Pittsburgh 27-24 at Tennessee (TEN +5.5, 45.5)
    9/8/13 Tennessee 16-9 at Pittsburgh (TEN +6, 42)
    10/11/12 Tennessee 26-23 vs. Pittsburgh (TEN +6.5, 43)
    10/9/11 Pittsburgh 38-17 vs. Tennessee (PIT -3, 40)
    9/19/10 Pittsburgh 19-11 at Tennessee (PIT +6, 37)
    9/10/09 Pittsburgh 13-10 OT vs. Tennessee (TEN +6.5, 35)


    TITANS AS A ROAD UNDERDOG


    Tennessee has only been in this situation once, losing to Miami 16-10 as a one-point underdog. They've actually been favored on three other road ventures, winning outright twice while going 1-2 ATS. They were 3-3 SU/ATS as an away 'dog in 2016, beating the Lions, Dolphins and Chiefs.

    STEELERS AS A HOME FAVORITE


    Pittsburgh is 2-1 at home thus far and is beginning a stretch where it will play five of its last seven at Heinz Field as it looks to ensure that the AFC playoffs go through its house as opposed to Foxboro. Including last season's wild card win over the Dolphins, the Steelers were 7-1 straight up at home in this role in 2016, going 4-2-1 ATS.

    NEXT WEEK'S NUMBERS POSTED

    The Westgate opens its advance lines for the following week on Tuesdays and Week 12 has the Steelers back in prime time on Sunday night as a 12.5-point favorite at home against the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers. The Titans will be home and are a 6.5-point favorite against the New York Jets.

    Thursday's Best Bet
    November 15, 2017


    NFL Week 11 TNF Betting Preview (NFL, 8:30 p.m. ET)
    Tennessee Titans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

    Week 11 kicks off with two potential playoff teams in the AFC doing battle as the Tennessee Titans head to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers. Both teams are on a roll right now having each won four straight games entering Week 11, but those victories have only really translated into point spread success for the Steelers.

    Pittsburgh is 3-1 ATS in their four victories having just failed to come close to covering (-10.5) against Indianapolis last week, while the Titans are 1-2-1 ATS during their four-game win streak as they've won their last three by a combined 10 points.

    Pittsburgh (-6.5); Total set at 44


    If the NFL playoffs were to start this weekend, both of these teams would be in as division winners, with Pittsburgh actually claiming the top seed in the AFC at the moment. Furthermore, it's tough not to agree with the oddsmakers in this game on the notion that the Steelers are clearly a level above Tennessee in terms of talent and skill as nearly a TD favorite, but is it too many points?

    Some will look at this line and see it as too high given both teams are squarely in the playoffs right now, but there is an argument to be made that it may not be high enough. Yet, this is a TNF game on a short week and Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has laready come out and stated how much he hates TNF games, so expecting the best from the Steelers this week may be out of the question.

    But at the same time, Titans QB Marcus Mariota is dealing with some nagging injuries to his non-throwing shoulder and ankle right now, so as enticing as this game may be on paper with two potential playoff combatants, we could end up seeing one of those sloppy, ugly TNF games many fans have come to expect over the years.

    If that's the case it likely would lend itself to a play on the 'under' here, especially with Pittsburgh being 1-8 O/U on the year. Pittsburgh's defense is a big part of that run, but the fact that the Steelers offense and all their weapons have failed to score 30+ points this year is a little surprising. Tennessee's defense is no slouch either since fixing a few things after giving up 57 to Houston at the beginning of October, but with the way primetime games have been cashing 'over' tickets this year (7-3 O/U on TNF), and Pittsburgh's offense more then due for an explosion, I'm going to pass on my lean of the 'under' here.

    Instead, I'm looking at this side and am firmly in the camp of believing this spread is a touch short on the Steelers. Pittsburgh's offense is definitely due to break out soon and put up 30+, and for a long time now they've been a much more productive unit at home compared to the road. This is only the fourth home game for Pittsburgh this season, and while they are 2-1 SU and ATS in the previous three, their two wins came by an average margin of victory of 16 points.

    Defensively, Pittsburgh at home has held all three of those opponents to 17 points or less on offense – their 30-9 home loss to Jacksonville had the Jags score two Pick-6's – and if you eliminate a 90-yard run by Jacksonville's Leonard Fournette during garbage time of Pittsburgh's lone home loss, the average points allowed vs opposing offenses would come in at 11 points per game.

    When you see a Tennessee team that has scored 14 points or less in each of their last three on the road, and now playing in a hostile environment on a short week, it's tough to imagine the Titans getting 13+ points here on offense unless Roethlisberger and the Steelers commit 3+ turnovers again. Scoring that few points against Pittsburgh is going to make it awfully hard for Tennessee to cover this number and that's really not a position I want to put myself in.

    Furthermore, this will be the best offense this Titans defense has faced on the road since getting shelled by the Deshaun Watson-led Houston Texans, as they've only had to deal with Miami and Cleveland since then. Tennessee went 0-2 ATS (1-1 SU) in those games and while the Steelers putting up 50+ on Tennessee this week is unlikely, another double-digit road loss for the Titans should occur again.

    Tennessee is just 7-20 ATS in thier last 27 on the road as an organization, and that includes a 3-9 ATS run against a winning home team. Mariota is banged up and his limited mobility in the pocket eliminates the bulk of him being a threat, and having a stationary, sometimes inaccurate passer in the pocket is a recipe for disaster against this Steelers defense.

    So don't let last week's struggles against Indianapolis persuade you into writing off a very good Steelers team that appears to be getting too much respect from the oddsmakers. If this game wasn't on a short week the line would be closer to -9 in my opinion, and at under a TD, I'm laying the points with a Steelers team that routinely plays up (and down) to the level of their competition.

    Best Bet: Pittsburgh Steelers -6.5

    Week 11's biggest injury questions for all 32 NFL teams
    NFC East


    Dallas Cowboys

    The Cowboys hope that left tackle Tyron Smith can play Sunday against the Eagles despite not practicing Wednesday. He didn't play against the Falcons last week because of a groin strain, and the Cowboys were lost without him, giving up eight sacks. If Smith can't play, then Byron Bell would likely take over for Chaz Green in the starting lineup. Green gave up four of the eight sacks, but Bell still gave up two sacks. Linebacker Sean Lee didn't practice and could miss the next three games with a hamstring strain. Anthony Hitchens would take over at weakside linebacker, but look for Justin Durant to take more snaps at middle linebacker over Jaylon Smith. -- Todd Archer


    New York Giants

    Defensive tackle Damon Harrison could miss his first game since joining the Giants last season. He's dealing with an ankle injury and didn't practice Wednesday. Not having Harrison would change the Giants' defense. He has been the one constant this season. You don't run at him when he's on the field. His replacements -- Jay Bromley and Robert Thomas -- aren't known as run-stuffers. Not having Harrison will make life difficult for the Giants against Kareem Hunt and the Chiefs. -- Jordan Raanan

    Philadelphia Eagles

    The Eagles are expected to get cornerback Ronald Darby back for Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys. Sidelined since the season opener with a dislocated ankle, the team's projected No. 1 corner has been a full participant at practice early in the week and has worked with the first team. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz indicated Darby will likely play on the left side when he returns, bumping Jalen Mills to the right. -- Tim McManus



    Washington Redskins

    Left tackle Trent Williams (knee) and tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) remain the biggest injury concerns. Neither practiced Wednesday, but that's not unusual for Williams. It has been his routine since he hurt his knee against the Chiefs in Week 4. Taking three weeks off didn't help him that much, so for Williams, it'll always come down to how much pain can he tolerate -- the bone bruise and ligament damage impacts his lateral movement, too. The challenge is being ready for the next three games considering the Redskins play on Thanksgiving. Reed was able to practice early last week, then stopped because of the hamstring and sat out a second straight game. He went through agility work on a side field. It's too early to know his status, and, as of now, the best guess is it'll be another game-time decision. -- John Keim


    NFC North



    Chicago Bears

    The biggest question mark is right guard Kyle Long, who was officially listed as limited Wednesday. But while Long dressed for last week's game against Green Bay, the three-time Pro Bowler only played one snap on special teams. He admitted Wednesday that he's dealing with multiple injuries -- dislocated fingers, a torn labrum and ankle problems. Long's status for Sunday against the Lions is unknown. It also appears the Bears will be without inside linebacker Danny Trevathan for another week. Trevathan did not practice Wednesday as he continues to recover from a serious calf injury. -- Jeff Dickerson



    Detroit Lions

    Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (back) missed his fourth practice in a row Wednesday. He missed last week against Cleveland, and if he doesn't practice Thursday, that doesn't bode well for his availability against Chicago. Right guard T.J. Lang is still working his way through concussion protocol. If he's cleared by Sunday, he'll play. It would be the first time all year the starting offensive line built by general manager Bob Quinn would be in a game. Dwayne Washington is also battling injury -- a somewhat common theme for him -- and if he's out, it could mean Zach Zenner's return to the active roster. -- Michael Rothstein



    Green Bay Packers

    Coach Mike McCarthy said he was hopeful that Ty Montgomery would be able to play Sunday against the Ravens, but that looks like a long shot. The running back didn't practice Wednesday after he reinjured the ribs he broke earlier in the season. And considering fellow running back Aaron Jones is out multiple weeks with a knee injury, it looks like it could be rookies Jamaal Williams and Devante Mays in the backfield. Williams was effective in relief of Jones and Montgomery against the Bears last Sunday, but Mays has yet to carry in a regular-season game. -- Rob Demovsky



    Minnesota Vikings

    Right tackle Mike Remmers was back in practice in a limited capacity since exiting the Week 8 win over the Browns with a concussion. The Rams' defensive line is among the best the Vikings will see this year, so getting Remmers back for Sunday is a top priority. Everson Griffen's (foot) absence was felt last week against Washington. The Vikings didn't generate much pressure off the edge and had a combined six pressures on 86 pass-rushing snaps between Danielle Hunter and Brian Robison. Coach Mike Zimmer said that he expects Griffen, who was a late scratch in Week 10, to be ready to go Sunday. Safety Andrew Sendejo was the only player to miss practice Wednesday. He sustained a groin/hamstring injury late against the Redskins and exited the game. -- Courtney Cronin


    NFC South



    Atlanta Falcons

    Two-time Pro Bowl running back Devonta Freeman is the biggest concern right now as he sustained his second concussion since August, the third of his Falcons career. Although coach Dan Quinn stopped short of declaring Freeman out for Monday night's showdown at Seattle, the Falcons surely will be cautious not to rush Freeman back before he's ready. Tevin Coleman will have to shoulder more of the load at running back until Freeman returns. -- Vaughn McClure



    Carolina Panthers

    Tight end Greg Olsen is on pace to come off injured reserve after the bye and play in the Week 12 matchup with the Jets. Olsen has been out since breaking his foot in a Week 2 win over Buffalo. His return should be a spark for the team, particularly after losing wide receiver Curtis Samuel (ankle) for the season last week. But Monday is the big day for Olsen to test to see if the foot can handle the pressure of facing live competition. -- David Newton



    New Orleans Saints

    Linebacker A.J. Klein didn't practice Wednesday because of the ankle injury that knocked him out of last week's game at Buffalo. Klein will absolutely be missed if he can't play this week, since he has been a great addition as the "quarterback" and signal-caller in the middle of the defense. But the Saints do have solid depth behind him with veterans Manti Te'o and Craig Robertson -- as they showed by not missing a beat in the 47-10 rout at Buffalo. The rest of the injury report was promising. Everyone was either full or limited, including safety Kenny Vaccaro, who returned after missing last week with a groin injury. -- Mike Triplett



    Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Quarterback Jameis Winston will be out for at least another week and possibly longer, depending on how his shoulder responds to the two weeks prescribed rest by multiple doctors, including Dr. James Andrews. Coach Dirk Koetter said he expects to see Winston back sometime this season, while general manager Jason Licht said that while they are sticking with two weeks, there is "no real timeline" and he could be out for "an extended period." Koetter also said that there had been no discussion between him and Licht on shutting Winston down for the season, and surgery is currently not being considered. -- Jenna Laine


    NFC West



    Arizona Cardinals

    All eyes are on quarterback Drew Stanton. He has a knee injury that has been reported as a sprain, but he talked about having a bone bruise Wednesday. He's progressing every day, faster than coach Bruce Arians anticipated, but his status for Sunday in Houston is still up in the air. Arians will make a decision after Friday's practice, but one issue that will factor into his decision will be how mobile Stanton can be in order to protect himself on the field. If Stanton can't play, Blaine Gabbert will get the start. -- Josh Weinfuss



    Los Angeles Rams

    There was a longer injury report than usual Wednesday, but it included a morsel of good news: Outside linebacker Robert Quinn, who missed last week's game with an undisclosed illness, was a limited participant. It's early, but Quinn, the only starter to not play in Week 10, appears on track to play Sunday in Minnesota. Outside linebacker Connor Barwin (knee), safety Lamarcus Joyner (hip) and left guard Rodger Saffold (ankle) did not practice, but coach Sean McVay said the Rams were mainly being cautious with their players. -- Alden Gonzalez



    San Francisco 49ers

    For the third week in a row, San Francisco's starting free safety is dealing with an injury. But unlike the season-ending fractured forearms suffered by Jimmie Ward and Jaquiski Tartt, rookie Adrian Colbert has a fractured thumb. Colbert had surgery on the thumb on Tuesday, and with the Niners on bye, he'll have additional time to recover. Coach Kyle Shanahan said Colbert is likely to be questionable for the first game after the bye, set for Nov. 26 against Seattle. It's possible Colbert could play with a cast, and the Niners could use him given how injury-prone they've been at such an important position in their defense. -- Nick Wagoner



    Seattle Seahawks

    In addition to cornerback Richard Sherman and running back C.J. Prosise -- who both went on IR this week -- the Seahawks had five other players unable to finish last week's game against Arizona because of injuries. Coach Pete Carroll said safety Kam Chancellor's status wouldn't be known until doctors evaluate the neck stinger he suffered Thursday night. Carroll was mum on how Duane Brown is progressing from a sprained ankle, so his availability for Monday night's game against Atlanta is also uncertain. One thing is for sure: Seattle could really use Brown after Adrian Clayborn's six-sack field day against Dallas' backup left tackles Sunday. -- Brady Henderson


    AFC East



    Buffalo Bills

    Defensive end Jerry Hughes left last week's loss to the Saints with a shin/calf injury that kept him out of practice Wednesday. If Hughes cannot return to practice and make the trip this weekend to L.A. to play the Chargers, the Bills will be left with Shaq Lawson, Ryan Davis and Eddie Yarbrough at defensive end. The Bills rank 30th in sacks per opposing pass attempt (4.3 percent) and Hughes leads the team with 3.0 sacks. -- Mike Rodak



    Miami Dolphins

    The Dolphins are relatively heathy this week after suffering no new injuries in Monday's loss to the Panthers. However, starting guard Ted Larsen is one game in after returning from injured reserve from a bicep tear. His performance is something to watch down the stretch as Miami needs him healthy for the rest of the season. -- James Walker



    New England Patriots

    The Patriots will likely be without wide receiver Chris Hogan(shoulder), defensive tackle Malcom Brown (ankle) and right tackle Marcus Cannon (ankle) once again, as those players didn't make the trip to Colorado Springs, where the team is spending the week before playing Sunday against the Raiders in Mexico City. Phillip Dorsett, Alan Branch and LaAdrian Waddlefilled in for them against the Broncos, with Waddle especially getting high marks. Said offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels: "He's done a good job of staying patient, working hard, waiting his turn, and now he's trying to make the most of his opportunities, and he's done well so far." -- Mike Reiss



    New York Jets

    When the Jets return from their bye, the injury spotlight will focus on two players: running back Matt Forte (knee) and cornerback Morris Claiborne(foot). Forte sat out the last game with his chronic issue, so he will have had a 24-day rest before the next game. The offense missed his pass-catching ability against the Bucs last week. Claiborne aggravated a sprain in the last game and pulled himself out in the first quarter. They need him for the stretch run because they face some tough receivers, and Claiborne often covers the opponents' No. 1. -- Rich Cimini


    AFC North



    Baltimore Ravens

    The expectation had been for running back Danny Woodhead to come off injured reserve this week, but Woodhead and team officials have been surprisingly noncommittal about his availability for Sunday's game in Green Bay. "I don't know the odds [of playing]," Woodhead said after Wednesday's practice. "I'm staying in my lane. We'll see where it takes us." Woodhead, who has been out since the season opener with a hamstring injury, would provide a much-needed boost to a struggling offense that ranks last in the NFL in passing. He represents the Ravens' biggest mismatch for defenses. -- Jamison Hensley



    Cincinnati Bengals

    Cornerback Adam Jones didn't practice Wednesday and is presumably under the league's concussion protocol after exiting last week's loss to the Titans. He'll likely need to log a full practice Thursday or Friday in order to play Sunday against the Broncos, but with his history of concussions, the Bengals could be without their most veteran defensive back. He suffered from back issues earlier this season, and Darqueze Dennard and Josh Shaw picked up his duties. Will Jackson III also missed practice Wednesday while still nursing the toe injury that took him out of Sunday's game at Tennessee. -- Laurel Pfahler



    Cleveland Browns

    Two starting offensive linemen didn't practice Wednesday. Right tackle Shon Coleman has a concussion, and center JC Tretter has shoulder, knee and quad issues. The Jaguars lead the league in fewest points allowed per game (14.9) and sacks (35), so it would not be a good game Sunday if the Browns are without two offensive linemen. -- Pat McManamon



    Pittsburgh Steelers

    Safety Mike Mitchell (ankle), tight end Vance McDonald (ankle) and outside linebacker James Harrison (back) are all questionable for Thursday's game against the Titans. All three practiced in limited capacity this week, but the short turnaround affects their probability. The Steelers aren't rushing Harrison back, knowing they'll need him for the playoffs. "[Mitchell] has a chance, and we'll leave the light on for him," coach Mike Tomlin said. "Same with Vance McDonald." -- Jeremy Fowler


    AFC South



    Houston Texans

    The Texans expect to be without wide receiver Will Fuller on Sunday against the Cardinals after he injured his ribs in Week 10 against the Rams. Fuller got injured while attempting to catch a short pass in the middle of the field. After the game, Fuller said he felt OK despite being sore, but didn't practice Wednesday. -- Sarah Barshop



    Indianapolis Colts

    Quarterback Jacoby Brissett will spend the bye in the concussion protocol after suffering the injury late in the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the Steelers. Brissett didn't miss any snaps during the game because he was evaluated and cleared to return. It wasn't until after the game that he started having concussion symptoms. The Colts, who defended their medical staff on its decision to clear Brissett to return to the game, are hopeful that having two weeks in between games will be enough time for the quarterback to get healthy. Scott Tolzien, who was benched after throwing two interceptions in Week 1 against the Rams, will start against the Titans in Week 12 if Brissett isn't cleared to return by then. -- Mike Wells



    Jacksonville Jaguars

    The Jaguars went from relatively healthy to having six players miss practice Wednesday, including two offensive linemen -- right tackle Jermey Parnell and left guard Patrick Omameh. They're critical to the Jags' run game, which ranks first in the league. They were out last week and the offensive line played its worst game of the season. The Jaguars do not want to have quarterback Blake Bortles throw it 50 times against the Browns in bad weather, so getting those two back ASAP is the No. 1 priority. -- Mike DiRocco



    Tennessee Titans

    The Titans don't have any players with injury designations ahead of Thursday night's showdown with the Steelers. Quarterback Marcus Mariotasuffered a sore left shoulder and sprained ankle Sunday, so that could be something to watch if he gets hit or twisted in a way that affects those areas, but I expect him to be mobile and effective. Tight end Delanie Walker (wrist) is also good to go. -- Cameron Wolfe


    AFC West



    Denver Broncos

    Two of the three tight ends on the Broncos' roster miss practice Wednesday with injuries, which could limit what they can do as far as personnel groupings in Sunday's game against the Bengals. A.J. Derby (shoulder) and Jeff Heuerman (knee) were held out of Wednesday's practice as Virgil Green was the only healthy tight end on the active roster to participate. Derby has been the main receiving option at the position to this point with 19 catches and two touchdowns. Green and Heuerman have combined for just 15 catches this season. Derby and Heuerman will be question marks as the week progresses. It could force the Broncos to play out of a three-wide receiver set even more than they have, and they've struggled to protect the passer out of that grouping so far this season. -- Jeff Legwold



    Kansas City Chiefs

    Starter Dee Ford and veteran Tamba Hali didn't practice Wednesday, raising the issue of whether the Chiefs will have enough depth at outside linebacker Sunday against the Giants. Ford has a back injury that has plagued him most of the season, so it wouldn't be much of a surprise if he couldn't play this week. Hali has sore knees that prevented him from practicing most of last season, but he was able to play in all 16 games. If neither plays Sunday, the Chiefs are left with Justin Houston, Frank Zombo and rookie Tanoh Kpassagnon, who is still learning his new position after playing defensive line in college. -- Adam Teicher



    Los Angeles Chargers

    Quarterback Philip Riverswas a limited participant in a nonpadded practice Wednesday as he works his way through the concussion protocol with hopes of playing Sunday against the Bills. The 35-year-old self-reported concussion-like symptoms Monday. He has made 194 consecutive starts, including postseason games, dating back to when he took over as the team's starter in the 2006 season. Coach Anthony Lynn said Rivers is doing well, and as his health improves, his workload will increase. Reserve quarterback Kellen Clemens was asked about the possibility of starting Sunday in place of Rivers and had this to say: "In the backup position you prepare the same way every week. You enjoy playing, but I understand my role. I'm here to help Philip and help this team in any capacity possible." -- Eric D. Williams



    Oakland Raiders


    Sure, David Amerson was only the No. 115-ranked cornerback out of 115 cornerbacks to have played at least 100 pass snaps in passer rating allowed entering last weekend, but Amerson is still considered an upgrade for the Raiders from what they've been trotting out. And last week's bye seemingly did little to help him heal up from the foot injury that has cost him the previous two games. Amerson didn't participate in practice Wednesday -- he ran with trainers off to the side during the open-media window -- and the Raiders' secondary is already shorthanded with rookie Gareon Conley being placed on injured reserve Monday. Oh, and Oakland faces the Patriots and their top-ranked overall and passing offense in the thin-air of Mexico City come Sunday. Paging Sean Smith, Dexter McDonald and TJ Carrie again, then. -- Paul Gutierrez
