Week 13 of the NFL Season is here!
Time to get your prepared for the weekend’s biggest games……
San Francisco (8-3) @ Philadelphia (10-1) 4:25 PM EST:
It seems like the Eagles playing a tough opponent is becoming an almost weekly occurrence.
Next up on the docket is the San Francisco 49ers in what should be another great game.
This is also a rematch from last year’s NFC Championship game.
A game in which Brock Purdy got hurt and the Niners could never recover.
Interestingly despite being 10-1 and being at home, the Eagles are underdogs at +3.
That is likely due to Philly’s unsustainably good fortune in close games bailing them out time and again.
And when combined with the lethalness San Fran possesses you can understand why the Niners are favored.
Still, you should not be surprised if the Eagles find a way to win another close one…..
This will be a great game for your Sunday viewing pleasure.
Kansas City (8-3) @ Green Bay (5-6) 8:20 PM EST:
Talk about a massive opportunity for Green Bay.
At home, playing the defending Super Bowl champs, and playing their best ball of the season.
There is a real chance to announce the Jordan Love era with a big primetime win.
On the other side this is usually around the time Patrick Mahomes and company start to kick it into gear.
Like the Patriots under Brady, they will take their bumps early in the season, but get hot towards the latter portion of the year.
KC won last time out and will look to make it two in a row in front of the raucous Lambeau Field crowd.
The Chiefs come in as -6 favorites.
Denver (6-5) @ Houston (6-5) 1:00 PM EST:
I say this every week but it is still unfathomable to think the Texans are playing meaningful games under a first year QB and head coach.
It is even more unfathomable that the meaningful game includes the Broncos, who themselves are on a 5 game win streak.
The NFL is a funny league sometimes, so who knows what will happen in this encounter.
One things for sure, these are two teams playing some good ball in what will be an intriguing matchup.
Lastly, Houston comes in as a -3 favorite.
Cincinnati (5-6) @ Jacksonville (8-3) 8:15 PM EST:
If Jake Browning and the Bengals are going to pull off an upset here they are going to need more than the 10 points they scored last week.
Jacksonville comes having won 7 of 8, and in that time they have played well on both sides of the ball.
Cincy will have to hope the defense can limit Trevor Lawrence and company aka make this a rock fight.
If they do that, then maybe the Bengals have a chance of covering the +8.5 on Monday Night Football.
Detroit (8-3) @ New Orleans (5-6) 1:00 PM EST:
Both teams are looking to bounce back from disappointing losses in the prior week.
For Detroit, Jared Goff has not been as efficient at keeping the ball as he was earlier in the season.
That is less than ideal going into a tough matchup against the Saints defense.
For New Orleans, they are just not a great team.
They need to accept that a rebuild is needed – currently they are right smack dab in the average category.
Yes, the Saints could still win the division, but what is the point?
This is not a team that will win multiple games in the playoffs.
Nonetheless New Orleans comes in as a +4 underdog.
We will see which team can bounce back.
