More expert picks continue to roll in for Week 11 matchups in the NFL, and the St. Louis Rams have been picked fairly often to win Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. However, Vinnie Iyer of AOL's Sporting News has released his picks for Week 11, and has the Rams falling to the Seahawks. Here is his pick and his analysis for the game:
The Seahawks' secondary has some rising young playmakers, including Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas. They've also been good at shutting down the run, so the Rams' sputtering offense won't get any breaks at home. St. Louis has a strong power runner in Steven Jackson, but no back in the league has been able to match the "Beast Mode" of Seattle's Marshawn Lynch in recent weeks. The 'Hawks will lean on Lynch to pound out a victory.
Seahawks 24, Rams 17.
The bad news for Rams fans is that Iyer has been fairly accurate so far this year, going 96-50 in his picks for the season-to-date.
