Walker's AFC North picks

Those pesky Cincinnati Bengals did it again.

It seems every week I pick against the Bengals when they are underdogs and they continue to ruin an otherwise perfect set of picks. Cincinnati upset the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road, 18-12, last weekend to take sole possession of first place in the AFC North.

Here are the AFC North blog's picks for Week 11:

Indianapolis Colts (9-0) at Baltimore Ravens (5-4)

Analysis: The Ravens really need this game. Too bad it comes against quarterback Peyton Manning, who is 6-2 all-time against Baltimore.

Pick: Colts, 27-21

Cleveland Browns (1-8) at Detroit Lions (1-8), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Analysis: If you thought last week's Browns game was ugly, wait until you see this matchup.

Pick: Lions, 13-9

Pittsburgh Steelers (6-3) at Kansas City Chiefs (2-7), Sunday at 1 p.m.

Analysis: The AFC West is getting clobbered by the physicality of the AFC North this year. This will be yet another example.

Pick: Steelers, 28-10

Cincinnati Bengals (7-2) at Oakland Raiders (2-7), Sunday at 4:15 p.m.

Analysis: The Bengals have never won in Oakland, but there is a first time for everything.

Pick: Bengals, 20-7

Last week’s record: 1-1

Overall record: 19-9

Comment: I'm feeling good about this week's picks. I see 4-0 in my future.
