NFL Predictions: Week 12 Picks for Every Game

Athlon's experts pick every winner for every game on the Week 12 slate

Week 12 of the NFL season could end up becoming Statement Sunday (and Thursday and Monday) as several teams have the opportunity to show that they are legitimate contenders. Of course, the flip side of that is it's pretty much put-up-or-shut-up time for several other teams that had lofty aspirations entering the season.

 

The action kicks off with a big AFC South showdown between Indianapolis and Houston on "Thursday Night Football." The two teams are currently tied record-wise (6-4), but the Colts hold a slight edge in the divisional race, thanks to a perfect 3-0 mark against the other teams. A sweep would really give them a leg up on the Texans. Other divisional matchups feature the other half of the AFC South (Jacksonville vs. Tennessee) going head-to-head as well as the NFC South (Tampa Bay vs. Atlanta, Carolina vs. Tampa Bay), and Cincinnati in Pittsburgh.

 

Elsewhere, Seattle takes on Philadelphia, with the Eagles (5-5) desperately needing a win to stay in an effort to build some positive momentum. Dallas makes the trip up Foxborough to face New England and don't be surprised if the words "Super Bowl preview" are heard at some point leading into and during this game. Another potential postseason sneak-peek gets the "Sunday Night Football" spotlight as Green Bay comes off of its bye to battle San Francisco. And "Monday Night Football" has the league's hottest team, Baltimore, in Los Angeles to take on the Rams. The defending NFC champions picked up a much-needed victory over the Bears last Sunday night, but at 6-4 they are currently on the outside looking in at the playoffs.
