Which of his former teams does Andersen think will win on Sunday?
With the 2020 NFL season now entering Week 11, we’re continuing our new weekly bit where some of the staff here at Canal Street Chronicles tries to pick winners and losers for every NFL game each week.
In Week 10, including a Deshaun Watson-to-DeAndre Hopkins “Hail Mary” that resulted in a last-second win for the Arizona Cardinals over the Buffalo Bills, and a mediocre showing by Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks against the Los Angeles Rams, leaving the NFC West in a giant state of flux.
In the NFC South, the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers were both expected by the CSC staff to take care of business, as the Saints beat the San Francisco 49ers and the Buccaneers put a whooping on the Carolina Panthers. The Atlanta Falcons were off last week, but return this week to face the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome, and the CSC staff overwhelmingly believes in Jameis Winston’s ability to fill in for the injured Drew Brees and beat the rival Falcons.
Here are our live-updating picks:
