Speaking of upsets, the Browns were 2-6 entering their Sunday showdown with the 6-2 Buffalo Bills. On paper, the Bills were supposed to dominate Cleveland and take them down on their home turf.
Instead, Baker Mayfield and Co. gave the local Cleveland fans reason to smile, taking down Josh Allen and Buffalo. This week, they'll have a tough test against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who just beat the L.A. Rams.
For Cleveland, they'll need Mayfield to keep spreading the ball around. Jarvis Landry has been the Browns' best receiver in recent weeks. They need to keep feeding him the ball. That won't be easy, though, as the Steelers' defense has been sensational.
Against the Rams, they did a great job of making Jared Goff look like an average quarterback. Defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick has been a beast ever since arriving from Miami. With Fitzpatrick and Pittsburgh's defense riding high, our NFL picks will include them to beat Cleveland straight up.
New England @ Philadelphia: 17/11/19 @ 4:25 PM ET
This one will be the Game of the Week for NFL fans across the world. A rematch of the Super Bowl from two years ago? Sign us up.
Tom Brady and New England will have revenge on their minds, while the Eagles will be with Carson Wentz running the offense and not Nick Foles this time around.
For the Pats, they were humbled before their bye in Week 10, getting dominated by the Baltimore Ravens in prime time. They're going to want to remind everyone they're still one of the best teams in the league.
As for Philly, it will be on Wentz to get the offense going early and keep things going throughout. They've got a strong run game with Miles Sanders, Jordan Howard and Darren Sproles, so they'll need to establish things early.
While this one should be close, New England is favored by 3.5 points, with 1.93 NFL odds, and we think they'll cover come Sunday afternoon.
Week 11 parlay free pick: Rams + Raiders + Saints
While there are some close games expected for Week 11, there are three games and three teams that are standing out to us for our weekly parlay.
Yup, the Rams, Raiders and Saints all have favorable matchups, with two of the three coming off tough losses in L.A. and New Orleans.
That'll make things even more interesting leading up to the weekend, with some extra pressure added to get the job done.
Though the Saints will be on the road, they're facing a disappointing Tampa Bay team. The Raiders will host the lowly Bengals, and the Rams will host the Bears.
Mitchell Trubisky has struggled tremendously this year. Imagine what the L.A. defense will do to him?
• Saints moneyline (1.42) over the Bucs
• Raiders moneyline (1.21) over the Bengals
• Rams moneyline (1.34) over the Bears

Kansas City @ Los Angeles: 18/11/19 @ 8:15 PM ET
Patrick Mahomes only missed two weeks due to a dislocated kneecap, proving once again he's super-human. However, his return to the gridiron was ruined by the Titans, who stunned KC 35-32 in Week 10.
For Mahomes, he'll look to get the Chiefs back on the winning road against the Chargers, who suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Raiders last Thursday night. With so many playmakers, KC enters this one favored by 3.5 points.
The Chargers will be the 'home' team, but that doesn't matter much in this instance, as the game will be played in Mexico at the Estadio Azteca. We're going with the Chiefs to win and cover the spread.
