SB Nation New York's Jared Smith has been rolling lately with his weekly NFL predictions and picks. Hopefully, Week 11 is no different.

Ten weeks into the NFL season and it seems like I am finally hitting my stride! Last week, I missed out on the Thursday night game, but rallied on Sunday to go 4-1 on the weekend. Overall, I am 10 games above .500. The wife is now wishing that I was actually putting real money on these games!

This week, the SB Nation New York local teams, New York Jets and Giants, have some pretty solid match ups and tough point spreads. I am not 100-percent confident on my picks this week, but let's see if I can keep this money train rolling.

Without further delay, here's my Week 11 NFL Predictions and Picks:

Jets (-7) at Broncos (Thurs., 8:20 p.m. on NFL Network): Tim Tebow meet Rex Ryan. That's the plot line for Week 11's Thursday night match up as New York visits Mile High. Now, a few weeks ago, I witnessed a Jets squad shutdown an explosive Bills offense. I expect that this defensive game plan will be a bit easier. Prediction: Jets 21, Broncos 7.

Cowboys (-8) at Redskins (1 p.m. on FOX): The move from John Beck to Rex Grossman may not be the best for Washington's future, but gives the 'Skins a chance to beat Dallas Sunday. Do I think that will happen? Like I said before, never put your money on Grossman. Prediction: Cowboys 24, Redskins 13.

Falcons (-7) vs. Titans (4:15 p.m. on CBS): It just seems that Atlanta struggles to pull off the big win. Meanwhile, Tennessee is hanging in the AFC playoff race. If Chris Johnson can get back to his old ways, then the Titans have a shot. But, the Falcons will be hungry for a solid victory. Prediction: Falcons 27, Titans 19.

Bears (-7) vs. Chargers (4:15 p.m. on CBS): If San Diego can somehow not kick to Devin Hester, I think Chicago doesn't stand a chance. But, nobody has proven that they can do that. Take Chargers in a close one. Prediction: Bears 20, Chargers 17.

Giants (-5) vs. Eagles (8:20 p.m. on NBC): Those of you who think the Eagles can hang with New York without Michael Vick have to get your head examined. However, those of you who think that the Giants are going to finally do what their supposed to do are kidding themselves as well. Prediction: Giants 24, Eagles 17.

Last week: 4-1-0. Overall: 26-16-2.
