NFL Picks And Predictions Week 11: Raiders Vs. Vikings

Can the Oakland Raiders finally put together a winning streak? They have to beat the Vikings in Minnesota this week if they want to win two straight.

A win would keep the Oakland Raiders alive in the AFC West race, where anything goes, apparently. Carson Palmer and company are more than a week removed from their road win over the Chargers last week, while the Minnesota Vikings are coming off a short week after a loss to the Packers

Most of the experts are picking the Raiders to win this one. Vinnie Iyer at the Sporting News, however, foresees a different outcome. 

Although that math doesn't add up in this unofficial "pick 'em," this matchup is prime for a surprise. The Raiders just got a big win over San Diego, so they're due for a head-scratching loss. In the battle of "CP" quarterbacks, Christian Ponder will get better support from Adrian Peterson than Carson Palmer will from Michael Bush.

Peter King picks the Raiders to win this game. Pete Prisco at CBS echoes King. ESPN's panel has a lone holdout, Adam Schefter, picking the Vikes in this one.
