By Marc Lawrence — The Week 11 NFL schedule is stacked with great matchups. ESPN’s NFL Nation reporters bring us the keys to every game, a bold prediction for each matchup and final score picks. Additionally, ESPN Stats & Information provides a stat to know for each game, and the Football Power Index (FPI) goes inside the numbers with a matchup rating (on a scale of 1 to 100) and a game projection. For example: When quarterback Ryan Tannehill starts regular-season games for Tennessee, overs are 16-3, including 7-2 this season… and Pittsburgh is 1-10 ATS as a double-digit road favorite under coach Mike Tomlin, with four outright losses… and Cincinnati is 0-17-1 outright in its past 18 road games… To read more nuggets on every matchup on today’s card click here.

From this week’s PLAYBOOK Football Newsletter: Rekindling Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer’s non-division numbers, he is 25-8-1 ATS as a host in these games, including 23-3 SU and 20-5-1 ATS as a favorite. On the opposite side of the field, the Cowboys are just 1-10 ATS of late in this series. Zimmer’s machine is purring again (3-0 SUATS since Minnesota’s Bye week) and it should be noted moving forward.
