Week 10 is in the books, and the NFL is getting more and more interesting. Good teams are losing, bad teams are winning and everyone between is having mixed results. Despite this, a few teams who were originally thought of as bad are now righting ship and are back in the hunt. If you missed our weekly Power Rankings, check them out right here. With so many intriguing matchups, let’s get right into our Week 11 game-by-game predictions.

Season Record: 95-51
Teams with byes: Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers
With that, let’s get into my first prediction: Thursday night’s matchup between the the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars. At first, this game looked like it the annual Thursday night snoozefest that it’s been in the past, but both of these teams are still in the AFC South hunt, now that the division-leading Colts are 4-5 and their quarterback is sidelined with a significant injury. The Jaguars have more to play for, as they’re only a game out of first place in the South; they also will have home-field advantage in this matchup. Thursday night’s game could actually end up being one of the most interesting matchups of the season. The uniform matchup, however, is an utter train wreck.

Tennessee Titans (2-7) at Jacksonville Jaguars (3-6)
Thursday 11/19 at 8:25PM EST
The Jaguars, coming off of one of the craziest and luckiest wins in NFL history, will now be wearing what could be the worst uniforms in NFL history as a part of the Nike’s Color Rush campaign. In what could be a surprisingly good game, I’m picking Jacksonville to take care of the Tennessee Titans at home. Blake Bortles is really coming along at quarterback, and his arsenal of weapons on offense is exciting. This game has the potential to be a shootout.
