NFL Week 11: What should you hope for on Sunday?

Ron Antonelli

Playoffs are a distinct possibility, and in order to guarantee their spot there are some teams you need to root for (and against) on Sunday.

The Carolina Panthers need a win on Monday night to help stay in-step with the Saints in the NFC South. This is a simple part of the equation, where it gets a touch more difficult is working out who you should pull for on Sunday.

San Francisco and New Orleans is a double-edged sword. A Saints loss means good things for Carolina's chances to win the division, but a 49ers' win could potentially hurt the wild card chances of the Panthers.

Ultimately it's better to be good than lucky, which is why you should pull for Colin Kaepernick on Sunday. If Carolina wins and New Orleans loses the Panthers take over the NFC South -- at least until the teams face off. If nothing else it makes the team get more of a reputation as the league's best.

Pull for the Jaguars with all your heart. The Arizona Cardinals have been undersold this season and represent a major threat to Carolina in the wild card. If both teams finish with the same record they would go through on head-to-head. They are currently at 5-4, just one game behind. Go Chad Henne!

You want Baltimore to beat Chicago. Many of the same things apply as Arizona. The teams haven't faced off, but the Bears are poised to push for a playoff spot -- even if it looks like the North will go to Detroit.

That's your viewing kind for Sunday. You'll need something to pass the time while waiting for Monday night and looking at your fantasy league, so pull for failure on Sunday!
