USA TODAY Sports’ Week 11 NFL picks: Packers or Colts in battle of first-place teams?

Week 11 of the NFL season has arrived with a logjam in the AFC. For the first time since the 1970 merger, nine teams in a conference have at least six wins after 10 weeks.

Two of those teams are the Ravens and Colts, who will meet again in Baltimore 10 months after Tennessee’s shocking divisional-round playoff upset of the No. 1 seed.

Out west, the Chiefs get another shot at the Raiders in Las Vegas six weeks after the Silver and Black dealt the defending champions their only loss of the season.

But the most compelling matchup of the week could be the Packers’ visit to the Colts as two first-place teams square off in interconference play. It marks only the fourth meeting of veteran quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Philip Rivers but the second in two years. Rivers got his first win against the Packers in 2019, leading the Chargers to a surprising upset in suburban L.A. However this game could have much broader implications for two clubs in playoff contention.
