Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans Thursday, November 12, 8:20 PM ET
The Thursday night matchup features a battle for two AFC South teams looking to control the division. The Titans sit at 6-2 and will host the 5-3 Colts this Thursday. Tennessee is coming off an impressive win this Sunday against Chicago while the Colts could not do anything against the Ravens. The Titans also snapped their two-game losing streak and will want to get back to their winnings ways, especially hosting a divisional rival on Thursday night. However, this is a great chance for the Colts to steal a road-win and sit atop the AFC South standings. Sunday, November 15, 1:00 PM ET
After losing to the Giants yet again, Washington now has to travel to Detroit to take on the Lions. Detroit also lost in their Week 9 matchup, so someone will look to snap a losing streak. This could be an interesting matchup for the Lions. They currently sit at 3-5, and although they are sub-.500, there is a chance they can find themselves competing for a playoff spot if they string a few wins together. The schedule is favorable to make it happen but will need to start with a win over Washington.
Philadelphia Eagles @ New York Giants Sunday, November 15, 1:00 PM ET
Philadelphia and New York square off again after squaring off on October 22 in Philadelphia. Less than a month later, the Giants will avenge the loss earlier in the season and string back to back wins together for the first time since the end of the 2019 season. However, quarterback Daniel Jones has five career wins, and four have now come against Washington. Philadelphia seems like the right side in the matchup despite the team currently sitting at 3-4-1 on the season. As everyone expected, this matchup will have playoff implications as the Eagles are currently in first place in the NFC East. A win would at least get them to .500, so it's not as weird seeing a team under .500 in the playoffs.
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Green Bay Packers Sunday, November 15, 1:00 PM ET
Jacksonville heads to Green Bay this Sunday in hopes of pulling off an upset against the Packers. The Jaguars almost came from behind to beat the Texans on Sunday but failed to complete the two-point conversion to send it to overtime. The Packers will be coming off the mini-bye after dominating the 49ers in San Francisco. This is the most lopsided spread on the board Sunday, and rightfully so. The Packers are one of the best teams in the NFL, coming off a big win while the Jaguars sit at 1-7. Maybe Jacksonville will keep it close Sunday.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, November 15, 1:00 PM ET
The Steelers survived in Dallas, keeping their undefeated record alive. They now have a date with the Cincinnati Bengals, who are coming off their bye. The Bengals have an impressive win against the Titans the week before, but Pittsburgh also had their way with Tennessee this season. As great as Joe Burrow has been this season, he will need a lot of help to take down an undefeated Pittsburgh team. The Steelers offense is not as great as it seems when looking at the numbers, which should help a Bengals defense that hasn't stopped anyone this season. Burrow will need to find a way to exploit the Steelers defense that has the second-best DVOA in the NFL.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Carolina Panthers Sunday, November 15, 1:00 PM ET
Tom Brady is going to be coming off one of the worst losses and performances of his career. Good luck, Carolina. The Buccaneers could not do anything against the Saints on Sunday night and now lost both matchups to New Orleans. The Saints are in the NFC South's driver seat, and Tampa Bay will need to bounce back quickly. Carolina almost pulled off an upset victory over the Chiefs on Sunday. The Panthers got out to an early lead before the Chiefs comeback to win outright. Sunday should be fun in Carolina.
Houston Texans @ Cleveland Browns Sunday, November 15, 1:00 PM ET
With Cleveland coming off the bye, they should be ready to go for Houston on Sunday. The Texans took care of business in Jacksonville while the Browns will be looking to bounce back after an ugly home loss to the Raiders before the bye. Houston has been playing better football since firing Bill O'Brien last month. The Texans are 2-2 after starting 0-4 and will continue to add wins to salvage the season. The Browns are 5-3 but have two out three games before the bye and did not look good in those matchups.
Denver Broncos @ Las Vegas Raiders Sunday, November 15, 4:05 PM ET
The Raiders continue to impress this season and will be hosting AFC West rival Denver on Sunday. Las Vegas is 5-3 and has won three of their last four games, including an upset victory over the Chiefs. The Broncos ran out of time on Sunday to complete the comeback against the Falcons. Denver has played better football in recent weeks, so this should be a good test against the Raiders on the road this Sunday. However, Jon Gruden continues to find ways to win, and they will want to keep fighting to stay in the playoff race.
Buffalo Bills @ Arizona Cardinals Sunday, November 15, 4:05 PM ET
After dominating the Seahawks at home on Sunday, Buffalo will have to travel west to take on the Cardinals. Arizona was upset by Miami on Sunday with a lackluster performance, so it is interesting to see the Cards open as a favorite. As the Bills remain atop of the AFC East, the Cardinals are trying to stay on pace with the Seahawks. It will be interesting to see how the offenses perform on Sunday. Both rank in the top-10 in DVOA, according to Football Outsiders. However, the Cardinals' defense does have the edge over Buffalo.
Seattle Seahawks @ Los Angeles Rams Sunday, November 15, 4:25 PM ET
Seattle and Los Angeles square off at SoFi Stadium this Sunday in a huge NFC West showdown. The Rams are one game back of the Seahawks for first place and will be coming off the bye. The Seahawks will be on back to back road games and just suffered a tough loss in Buffalo. There should be a good amount of points put up on Sunday. Both offenses are electric to watch. While the Seahawks have struggled defensively, the Rams have benefitted from playing weak offenses, boosting the defensive stats. That should change on Sunday.
San Francisco 49ers @ New Orleans Saints Sunday, November 15, 4:25 PM ET
The 49ers are traveling to New Orleans to take on the Saints. Both teams are going in opposite directions right now, with San Fran being dominated at home by Green Bay and New Orleans going on the road and getting a statement win over Tampa Bay. The Saints can't possibly lose on Sunday, right? New Orleans could have some issues against this 49ers defense, and Jimmy Garoppolo should be back under center this Sunday for San Francisco. Even with George Kittle out, the Niners offense should play better.
Baltimore Ravens @ New England Patriots Sunday, November 15, 8:20 PM ET
The Sunday night matchup will feature the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots. Although it is not the matchup we have seen in recent years, this should be a fun one to watch if the Patriots can turn their season around against a very good Ravens team. Bill Belichick has always been great at taking away a team's best player, and with the Ravens missing multiple offensive players, Lamar Jackson could have issues this Sunday. New England continues to have issues of their own. The league will see how they play against the Jets on Monday night, and they will need a convincing win to make people believe that they are still a team to be fearful of.
Minnesota Vikings @ Chicago Bears Monday, November 16, 8:15 PM ET
Minnesota and Chicago square off on Monday night this week. Both teams are heading in opposite directions as the season passes the half-way point. After starting 1-5 this season, the Vikings have won two straight against NFC North opponents, and they could make it a sweep with a win over the Bears. Chicago started their season 5-1 and have now lost three in a row and no signs of reversing course. This Monday night matchup could make or break either of these teams. The Vikings have the momentum heading into Monday, but the Bears have played historically well against a Kirk Cousins led Vikings team.
