The schedule-makers have got heavy on rivalry games to end the season, as half of the 12 games are divisional contests. Among the highlights are Ravens-Browns and Raiders-Chiefs in the early afternoon and Bears-Packers on "Sunday Night Football."

The late afternoon slate has four cross-conferences games, several of which include projected playoff teams. Bills-Buccaneers looks like a potential Super Bowl preview, while the Bengals and 49ers will just be looking to hang onto their current wild-card spots.

So if you're wondering "What NFL games are on today?" know this: There are 12 scheduled for today, Sunday, Dec. 12.

Note: Games are ordered by start time. All times are ET.

Atlanta at Carolina, 1 p.m. on FOX

There's a three-way tie in the NFC South between these teams and the Saints, so the winner will get a bit of separation. These teams are also just one game out of the final wild-card spot in the muddled middle of the NFC.

Baltimore at Cleveland, 1 p.m. on CBS

These teams met just two weeks ago, and since the Browns are coming off of a bye, they will be facing the Ravens in consecutive games. Baltimore won the first go-around 16-10 and has won four straight in this series.

Jacksonville at Tennessee, 1 p.m. on CBS

The Titans have lost consecutive games but are coming off a bye and could hardly have picked a better opponent. The Jaguars have lost four straight and are averaging 10.7 points per game since their bye.

Las Vegas at Kansas City, 1 p.m. on CBS

Hope you didn't write the Chiefs off after their 3-4 start because Patrick Mahomes and company are back atop the AFC West and in position to grab the conference's No. 1 seed again. Kansas City stomped Las Vegas 41-14 when these teams met four weeks ago.

New Orleans at New York Jets, 1 p.m. on CBS

Taysom Hill is making his second start of the season and will hope to do better than last week, when he threw four picks against the Cowboys. This could be a great opportunity for the Saints to snap their five-game losing streak.

Dallas at Washington, 1 p.m. on FOX

Only two games separate these rivals atop the NFC East, and they're going to face each other twice in three weeks. Dallas lost both matchups last season, although Dak Prescott — who is 7-1 against Washington in his career — was injured.

Seattle at Houston, 1 p.m. on FOX

The Seahawks are still seeking their first back-to-back wins of the season — could it come against the Texans? At 8.5 points, Houston is the biggest home underdog of the Sunday slate.

Detroit at Denver, 4:05 p.m. on FOX

Coming off their first win of the season, the Lions have a chance to make it a real winning streak on the road. But they'll have to overcome a bunch of absences to topple a Broncos team that is just one game out of the playoffs.

New York Giants at Los Angeles Chargers, 4:05 p.m. FOX

With Daniel Jones (neck) out again, Mike Glennon will make another start despite sustaining a concussion last week. The Chargers could use a second straight win to solidify their playoff positioning after alternative wins and losses in their six games following a Week 7 bye.

San Francisco at Cincinnati, 4:25 p.m. on CBS

These teams are sitting in the seventh seed of their respective conferences, making this a good test of their playoff odds. The 49ers could get a boost from the return of wide receiver/weapon Deebo Samuel, who leads the team in yards from scrimmage by more than 300 yards despite missing last week with a groin injury.

Buffalo at Tampa Bay, 4:25 p.m. on CBS

The Buccaneers have a chance to become the second NFC team with 10 wins when they host a Bills team reeling from an embarrassing loss to the Patriots on Monday night. A win would give Tampa Bay a 6-0 mark at home games to start the season — something they've only done once before in the Super Bowl era. 

Chicago at Green Bay, 8:20 p.m. on NBC (SNF)

The NFL's oldest rivalry will meet in prime time for the 10th time since 2015. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have owned this series lately, but Chicago's defense has stepped up in recent weeks and could be ready to upset the NFC North leaders.
