Good morning, welcome to week 13 of the NFL season.
There wasn’t a Thursday night game this past week, but there was a Wednesday afternoon game to make up for what should have been last Thursday night’s game. The NFL: we haven’t cancelled one game no sir we just move games around or tell teams fuck off play without a quarterback. Speaking of moving games around, we’ve got two Monday games and a Tuesday night game.
SAINTS vs. FALCONS, 12:00 P.M., FOX
The day after LSU beat Alabama last year the 1-7 Falcons shocked the 7-1 Saints in the Superdome.— Evan Saacks (@evansaacks) December 6, 2020
So I guess the good news is Taysom Hill is gonna have 4 TDs and a perfect passer rating tomorrow.
LIONS vs. BEARS, 12:00 P.M., FOX
Aside from Barkevious Mingo I give this game a big ole “who cares.”
BROWNS vs. TITANS, 12:00 P.M., CBS
A fun game all around, and possible Wild Card preview. That’s right the always terrible Browns and usually anonymous Titans are playing each other in a meaningful game in December, it’s pretty wild.
BENGALS vs. DOLPHINS, 12:00 P.M., CBS
We could have had Burrow vs. Tua III but Joe’s out with his knee injury and Tua won’t play because of a thumb injury so let’s go ahead and ignore this.
JAGUARS vs. VIKINGS, 12:00 P.M., CBS
Justin Jefferson: 52 catches, 918 yards, 5 touchdowns, future Offensive Rookie of the Year
RAIDERS vs. JETS, 12:00 P.M., CBS
The Raiders laid an egg last week against the Falcons, fortunately they get the hapless Jets to get back on track
COLTS vs. TEXANS, 12:00 P.M., CBS
No LSU players, no care.
RAMS vs. CARDINALS 3:05 P.M., FOX
A fun game out west featuring some former LSU greats, Patrick Peterson and Michael Brockers. It’s by far and away the best game of the afternoon slate so tune in.
GIANTS vs. SEAHAWKS 3:05 P.M, FOX
This qualifies as a potential playoff preview because the four-win Giants are in first place in the NFC East. That’s right, it’s December 6 and a team with four wins is not only in the playoff hunt they’re leading their damn division.
EAGLES vs. PACKERS 3:25 P.M., CBS
I wish the Eagles just wouldn’t anymore, you know?
PATRIOTS vs. CHARGERS, 3:25 P.M., CBS
The Patriots are walking a tightrope, they’re not out of the AFC Playoff picture yet, but with three teams ahead of them they’ll need to go at least 4-1 down the stretch to claim the final Wild Card spot.
BRONCOS vs. CHIEFS, 7:20 P.M., NBC
Clyde Edwards-Helaire has scored five touchdowns this season, and three have come on NBC. Make of that what you will.
WASHINGTON vs. STEELERS, Monday December 8, 4:00 P.M., FOX
Maybe it’s because of the current climate, but it feels like Pittsburgh is the least impressive 11-0 team in history.
BILLS vs. 49ERS, Monday December 8, 7:15 P.M., ESPN
This game will be played in Arizona because Santa Clara county has banned sports teams from holding practices or games. And don’t look now, but the 49ers are only a game out of the Wild Card, there’s a whole host of NFC teams jumbled up gunning for that 7-seed.
COWBOYS vs. RAVENS, Tuesday December 9, 7:05 P.M., FOX
This game lost a whole lot of luster with the Cowboys being ass and the Ravens in a tailspin and a quarter of the team battling COVID. But don’t think about that, think about the FOOTBAW.
