It's Week 13 of the NFL season, which means it's time to get ready for a Thanksgiving tripleheader. For the second straight season, Chicago-Detroit and New Orleans-Atlanta will open and close the Turkey Day proceedings while the other game has Buffalo making a rare visit to AT&T Stadium to face Dallas. The Saints can wrap up the NFC South with a win over the Falcons while the Bears and Cowboys desperately need a W to boost their playoff chances.
But the football feasting won't end on Thursday as the end of the bye weeks means every team will be in action in Week 13. One game fans are certainly looking forward to is the Sunday afternoon matchup of the league's hottest team, Baltimore, with the current top team in the NFC, San Francisco. Can the 49ers' defense be the ones to finally slow down MVP front-runner Lamar Jackson and the Ravens' high-flying offense?
There also are several significant divisional matchups on tap for Sunday, starting with the rematch between Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Even though Myles Garrett (suspended) nor Mason Rudolph (benched, replaced by Devlin Hodges) figure to be a factor in the outcome this time around, this is still an important game with the Steelers and Browns jockeying for positioning in the wild-card chase. Other divisional matchups include Tennessee vs. Indianapolis, Rams vs. Cardinals, Chargers in Denver to face the Broncos, and the battle for first place in the AFC West between the Chiefs and Raiders.
Other potential playoff previews will take place in primetime as New England travels to Houston in a battle of AFC division leaders on "Sunday Night Football," while the current two wild-card holders in the NFC, Minnesota and Seattle, go head-to-head on "Monday Night Football."
