The Lions are 0-9-1. Is this the week they finally break through for a victory? We don't think so. Chicago's defense will be too tough.
Prediction: Bears 17, Lions 10
The Cowboys look great one week and horrible the next. Which team will show up in Week 12? Since they are coming off a rough loss to the Chiefs, we think the good version.
Prediction: Cowboys 31, Raiders 20
The Bills are one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL, but they are still 6-4 and they still have time to get things turned around. They will start against the Saints.
Prediction: Bills 24, Saints 17
Sunday early games
The Colts have looked very impressive in recent weeks, especially in their dismantling of the Bills in Week 11. Can they beat the Buccaneers, who are coming off a short week? Yes, they can.
Prediction: Colts 28, Buccaneers 24
The Texans impressed in a Week 11 win over the Tennessee Titans. It won't be a pretty game in Week 12, but they'll get another victory.
Prediction: Texans 18, Jets 13
Jalen Hurts shined running the ball in Week 11 for the Eagles. Can he start to progress throwing the ball, too? This game provides him a great opportunity.
Prediction: Eagles 24, Giants 21
The Dolphins are on a roll and their defense has really stepped up as of late. It will face a test in Cam Newton, who is still getting acclimated in his return to Carolina. It will pass that test.
Prediction: Dolphins 30, Panthers 24
This game could have huge playoff seeding implications. We like the Patriots' chances at home. New England will continue to roll.
Prediction: Patriots 27, Titans 19
The winner of this game will be so much better off in the AFC North race. Something tells us the road team is going to come up with a big play late.
Prediction: Steelers 20, Bengals 17
The Falcons absolutely have to win this game to have any chance at the postseason. We see them losing a thriller on the road.
Prediction: Jaguars 20, Falcons 17
Sunday late games
The AFC West has perhaps the most intriguing division race in the NFL. Justin Herbert and the Chargers will help their chances to win the division with a thrilling win in Denver.
Prediction: Chargers 31, Broncos 28
The Rams can't afford to lose another game as they chase the Cardinals in the NFC West, but the Packers will be pumped up after falling to the Vikings in Week 11.
Prediction: Packers 27, Rams 23
This game could have huge playoff implications with both of these teams fighting for a berth. The San Francisco defense will make a play when it needs to to seal the victory.
Prediction: 49ers 23, Vikings 19
Sunday Night Football
If Lamar Jackson is back for the Browns in this one, we like the Ravens' chances to win this game going away.
Prediction: Ravens 35, Browns 21
Monday Night Football
The Seahawks have not looked good since Russell Wilson's return. We aren't expecting that to change against Washington.
Prediction: Washington 28, Seahawks 16
