The top 10 of this yearr17;s NFL Draft is becoming very interesting. There seems to be a ton of blue chip pass rushers coming to the NFL as well as several other very talented defenders and offensive lineman. There is also the wild card of whether Kyler Murray will be the second quarterback taken in the first 10 picks after Dwayne Haskins.All of this leaves the Bengals sitting at pick 11 wondering who will fall on draft night. Right now the Bengals two most glaring needs are at offensive tackle and linebacker. At this point Carlos Dunlap Jersey , Devin White is the only linebacker who looks like he will be worthy of a selection that early if he makes it to Cincinnatir17;s pick. Offensive tackle looked like a thin position at the start of the draft process, but a few more tackles have been climbing up the draft boards, which has Todd McShay thinking the Bengals could snag one early in his most recent mock draft.This mock shows the rise of not only Ford, but Jawaan Taylor, the offensive tackle out of Florida, as well. Taylor went ninth overall to the Bills, which is quite the rise after he was viewed as a mid-first round pick not that long ago.Ford would obviously be a welcome addition. The offensive line saw improvements last season after bringing in Billy Price at center and Cordy Glenn at left tackle, but it really shows just how bad they were before that since they still struggled pretty heavily. One of the main reasons for the was Bobby Hart starting at right tackle most of the season. There were times you questioned how he could have ever been viewed as a starting right tackle with the way he pass protected. Ford would be an instant upgrade in the run game where he has incredible power and enough quickness to set the edge. His major knock seems to be his pass protection footwork isnr17;t quite there yet, but if the biggest knock is technique then you could do far worse. He would likely be a day one starter and have an instant impact when you consider what the Bengals dealt with last season.It should also be noted that White was also still on the board in McShayr17;s scenario, which would create quite the dilemma for Cincinnati. Their linebacking group could be getting a hard reset with the likely release of Vontaze Burfict and the rest of the group being mediocre at best. White would give the Bengals a true sideline-to-sideline linebacker, which is something theyr17;ve been desperately missing for years now.If the Bengals manage to pick up a starter with the 11th pick at offensive line or linebacker, it seems like itr17;d be hard for fans to be too upset with the selection. What some are calling the NFL's Game of the Year already has made huge headlines by being moved out of Mexico City because of poor playing conditions. Chiefs-Rams is back in Los Angeles, in prime time and, if it lives up to its billing, could be a wild Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey , high-scoring affair.Regardless of who wins, both clubs figure to be in the Super Bowl mix. And because of the extracurriculars associated with Monday night's meeting, perhaps it won't be a fair measurement which is the superior team.Who cares? For a mid-November match, fans can't ask for much better than a pair of 9-1 teams with powerhouse offenses and stars galore r12; leading MVP contenders Todd Gurley of Los Angeles and Patrick Mahomes of Kansas City for starters r12; going at it as the only show in town. No matter which town.It's the first meeting in NFL history this late in a season between two teams averaging 33 points per game."He's made some plays that you sit back and you can't help but just say, r16;Wow, what a great play,'" Rams coach Sean McVay says of Mahomes, who leads the NFL in yards passing (3,150). Rams QB Jared Goff is second (3,134).Mahomes set a Chiefs record with an NFL-best 31st TD pass of the season last week. Len Dawson had held that KC record since 1964.Gurley paces the NFL in scoring (108 points), yards rushing (988), carries (198), yards from scrimmage (1,390) and touchdowns (17). He has scored a touchdown in 13 consecutive games, extending his own franchise record."He is a heck of a player. A great player Billy Price Jersey ," Chiefs coach Andy Reid says when asked how to slow Gurley. "You have to be disciplined. They're a disciplined offense, so you have to be disciplined from a defensive standpoint. Then practice that way and then you go play."OK, guys, go play. Let America watch what could be a classic.The weekend began Thursday night with Seattle's 27-24 home victory over Green Bay. Russell Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference. Seattle (5-5) snapped a two-game losing streak. Green Bay dropped to 4-5-1.Off this week are New England (7-3), the New York Jets (3-7), Miami (5-5), Cleveland (3-6-1), San Francisco (2-8) and Buffalo (3-7).MINNESOTA (5-3-1) at CHICAGO (6-3)We soon will find out if the Bears are for real. They are on top of the NFC North, now face the defending division winners, then in a ridiculously short turnaround from Sunday night, they play the early Thanksgiving Day game at Detroit. They also have the Rams and Packers on the road in December.Two of the NFL's stingiest and most physical defenses should be main factors Sunday.Minnesota has allowed an average of only 252.5 yards over last four games, winning three. It did so missing some starters. Safety Harrison Smith likes seeing the Bears: Smith has four interceptions and six passes defended in 10 career games vs. Chicago.Chicago dropped 10 in a row against the NFC North before beating Detroit last Sunday. It leads the NFL with 16 interceptions, and ranks second with 24 takeaways.HOUSTON (6-3) at WASHINGTON (6-3)Two also-rans of 2017 now leading their divisions.The Texans have won six in a row and come off a bye. Key personnel such as DE J.J. Watt and QB Deshaun Watson were injured last year and are now playing at peak efficiency.If Watson gets time to throw r12; Houston has surrendered 30 sacks r12; DeAndre Hopkins will be the biggest challenge to cover. He has four games with 10-plus catches, 100-plus yards and a touchdown through the air. That's most in the league since the start of 2017, and Hopkins has five TD catches over the past four games. .Washington has showed some balance on offense Jessie Bates Jersey , but the defense has been a major factor in its strong year. It has forced a turnover in 13 consecutive games, the NFL's longest active streak.TENNESSEE (5-4) at INDIANAPOLIS (4-5)Suddenly, there's a race in the AFC South, and the Colts could get even more involved with a fourth consecutive victory. But the Titans, coming off their best game by far in an upset of the Patriots, have won six straight within the division.Of course, Andrew Luck was not in the lineup for any of those; Luck is 9-0 in starts against Tennessee."I'm aware of it," Luck says. "But what's happened has happened, and good, bad or ugly, it doesn't really matter."The Titans have the league's No. 1 scoring defense, allowing 16.8 points a game, and have yielded a league-low 16 touchdowns.PHILADELPHIA (4-5) at NEW ORLEANS (8-1)New Orleans looks like the NFL's top team right now, and the Eagles don't resemble their title-winning squad of last season.Injuries are damaging Philly's defense at a really bad time. A banged-up secondary takes on Drew Brees and his assortment of helpers. The Saints have scored at least 40 points in five games this season, the third team in NFL history to score 40 in five of the first nine. Brees is completing 77.1 percent of his passes Sam Hubbard Jersey , has thrown for 21 TDs with one interception, and has a 123.8 passer rating.Michael Thomas is tied for the NFL lead with 78 catches, ranks second with 950 yards, while Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram form a formidable and versatile backfield.PITTSBURGH (6-2-1) at JACKSONVILLE (3-6)The Steelers will be wise to look forward and not back at their last encounter with the Jaguars. Jacksonville beat Pittsburgh twice last season, including a 45-42 playoff shocker at Heinz Field.Thinking revenge would be foolish because the Steelers are on a roll. Well, so are the Jags: Pittsburgh has won five in a row, Jacksonville has dropped that many consecutively.Steelers running back James Conner has not allowed the team to regret the contract impasse that has led to Le'Veon Bell sitting out the season. Conner is the eighth player in team history with at least 10 rushing touchdowns, leads the AFC in rushing, and is expected to play after being placed in concussion protocol following last week's win over Carolina.CINCINNATI (5-4) at BALTIMORE (4-5)Cincinnati brings a historically leaky defense to Baltimore, which might be without regular quarterback Joe Flacco (hip). That would mean either first-round pick Lamar Jackson or veteran Robert Griffin III will try to further expose that Bengals unit.The Bengals have won eight of the last 10 in the series, but they fired first-year defensive coordinator Teryl Austin after a 51-14 loss to the Saints, the second-most points allowed in franchise history. They became the first team in the Super Bowl era to give up 500 yards in three straight games and are on pace to give up an NFL-record 7,273 yards.Head coach Marvin Lewis takes over defensive coordinator duties, too.DALLAS (4-5) at ATLANTA (4-5)The Falcons appeared ready to take a role in the playoff race with three successive wins. Then, they put forth a stinker at Cleveland.Meanwhile Malik Jefferson Jersey , the Cowboys seemed headed toward irrelevance before they went into Philadelphia and outplayed the Super Bowl champions.Dallas will want to run with Zeke Elliott, who's second in the NFL in rushing behind Gurley after gaining 151 yards against the Eagles. Atlanta will want to throw: Matt Ryan has seven games with a QB rating over 100 and six games with more than 300 yards passing, while Julio Jones became the fastest player in NFL history with more than 10,000 yards receiving.CAROLINA (6-3) at DETROIT (3-6)Both teams would like to forget last week's poor performances.Carolina leads this infrequent series 6-2 and remains in good position in the wild-card race with a victory. Detroit needs an immediate turnaround to get into contention.If this is close, expect Cam Newton and Co. to win. Since 2013, the Panthers are 26-14 in games decided by seven points or fewer. They have won five straight games decided by three or fewer.Newton has thrown at least two TD passes in eight straight games, the longest streak in franchise history.DENVER (3-6) at LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (7-2)While the Rams grab the headlines in LA, the Chargers keep grabbing victories. They could get help in the AFC West if their neighbors knock off KC, too.The Chargers are a league-best 13-3 since Week 9 of last season. Their six-game winning streak marks the 11th time since the merger they had a streak of six or more. Philip Rivers has thrown for two or more TDs in nine straight games. Only five quarterbacks in league history have a string of 10 or more games.TAMPA BAY (3-6) at NEW YORK GIANTS (2-7)Saturday's Notre Dame-Syracuse matchup in the New York area figures to be more fun than this, although the Bucs usually pile up the yards in passing offense and the Giants come off a stirring Eli Manning-led comeback win.Tampa has lost three in row and six of seven, while New York broke a five-game slide on Monday night. Bucs wideouts Mike Evans (13 catches for 217 yards and a TD in two games) and DeSean Jackson (five touchdowns in the last six games) have feasted on the Giants' defense.OAKLAND (1-8) at ARIZONA (2-7)The lowest-ranked teams in the AP Pro32 face off with the Cardinals coming off a solid effort at Kansas City. The Raiders? They seem to have fallen into the Black Hole, outscored 54-9 in the last two games.Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald needs eight receptions to surpass Jerry Rice for the most catches for one team.
