NFL Week 12 schedule: 5 best games on the slate

NFL Week 12 features some mouthwatering matchups, including the Ravens VS the Rams. We take a look at the five best games in NFL Week 12.

5. Seattle Seahawks at Philadelphia Eagles

Huge game for both teams. The Seahawks are going to make the playoffs, but there is a huge difference between having home-field advantage throughout and being a road team on Wild Card weekend. Seattle could actually leapfrog the San Francisco 49ers with a win should the Niners lose. Philadelphia is 5-5 and desperately trying to keep touch with the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East. A loss here and things could be trending downward for the duration.

4. Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans

The Texans and Colts are battling on Thursday night for first place in the AFC South. The winner moves up a game on the loser and has to feel good about hosting on Wild Card weekend. The loser suddenly is trying to simply get into the postseason, holding off the likes of the Oakland Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers. This game is especially critical to the Colts, who lost head-to-head against both Oakland and Pittsburgh. However, a win for Indy and it not only has a one-game lead but clinches the tiebreaker over Houston with a series sweep.

3. Dallas Cowboys at New England Patriots

The Patriots are only leading the Baltimore Ravens by a game in the AFC playoff picture for the top seed. New England also lost to Baltimore, so winning here is critical. Meanwhile, the Cowboys are doing everything possible to create some distance between themselves and the Eagles before the two play their rematch come December in Philadelphia. If the Cowboys can find a way to pull the upset in Foxboro, Jerry Jones and Co. would have to feel good about ultimately securing the No. 4 seed.

2. Baltimore Ravens at Los Angeles Rams

The Ravens are the hottest team in the NFL. They just dismantled the Texans, 41-7, and come into their Monday night showdown with Los Angeles at 8-2. The Rams, though, are both home and desperate on a national stage. Jared Goff has been nothing short of a mess throughout most of the year, but last Sunday against the Chicago Bears, the running game was rediscovered. If Baltimore struggles with Todd Gurley, the Rams have a shot to pull the minor upset.

1. Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers

How much explaining do we really need here? Aaron Rodgers gets to take on the team which passed on him more than a decade ago with the No. 1 pick. Think he’s forgotten about that? Also, the 49ers and Packers are respectively No. 1 and 2 seeds in the NFC playoff picture. Doesn’t get much bigger in the regular season.
