While Week 11’s NFL action may not have matched the excitement and entertainment value from Week 10, it could end up having just as much impact on how the season eventually plays out. Injuries were the headline for Week 11 as Andrew Luck, A.J. Green, LeSean McCoy, Luke Kuechly, Earl Thomas, Ryan Mathews, Jay Cutler, Giovani Bernard, C.J. Prosise were among those who got hurt.

Even though the health of specific players will certainly loom large for certain Week 12 matchups, there is good news for football fans. There’s a full slate of action lined up, starting with a Thanksgiving Day triple-header. The Turkey Day action begins with a battle for first place in the NFC North between Minnesota and Detroit.

Dallas, the other traditional Thanksgiving host team, will put its nine-game winning streak on the line at home against archrival Washington. The Redskins are in the thick of the playoff chase following a convincing 42-24 win over the Packers. The football feast concludes Thursday night with Indianapolis in Pittsburgh to face the Steelers. The Colts may be without Luck, who is in the concussion protocol and may not be able to clear the necessary tests on a short week.

Other intriguing matchups in Week 12 include a key AFC North clash between Cincinnati and Baltimore. How will the Bengals respond after losing Green and Bernard to injuries? Arizona travels to Atlanta with the Cardinals desperately needing a win as they look to get a second half surge started. Carolina also faces a must-win situation as the Panthers will visit the Black Hole to take on AFC-leading Oakland.

And the Sunday night game, which was flexed from New England at the Jets, features Kansas City and Denver facing off in a matchup of the two teams currently leading the chase for the wild card spots in the AFC.
