NFL Week 13 Late Games

All times Eastern

Los Angeles Rams (-3, 48 1/2) at Arizona Cardinals 4:05 pm (Fox) - This is a huge game for both clubs, with the Rams a game behind Seattle in the NFC West and the Cardinals, losers of two straight another game back.

Arizona has dropped three of their last four, the most recent both road trips, at Seattle, 28-21, and at New England, 20-17. They're as good or better than most NFL teams, but lack of a consistent ground game is a problem.

The Rams were rolling along at 7-3, but ran into second half trouble against the 49ers last week, dropping a 23-20 decision. The Cardinals' defense isn't as good as that of San Francisco, so give the Rams the nod because their defense is in the league's top three (297 yards per game, 2nd; 19.5 ppg tied for 3rd).

Coin Flip: Arizona

Prediction: Rams 31 Cardinals 24

New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks (-10, 48) 4:05 pm (Fox) - Seattle keeps chugging along, taking back the lead in the NFC West after winning, 23-17, at Philadelphia, while the Cardinals and Rams suffered losses. Along with the Steelers, they are the only team without a home loss this season and the Giants don't do well in road games (2-4).

New York has won three straight, but their 4-7 record speaks to the overall lack of depth and quality. Seattle should handle them with relative ease.

Coin Flip: New York Giants

Prediction: Seahawks 35 Giants 20

Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers (-9 1/2, 47) 4:25 pm (CBS) - Losers of their last three, the Eagles scored 17 points in each of those losses, which seems to be a number they're stuck on with an ineffective offense that hasn't been able to sustain drives all season.

The Packers just continue to get better every week, expanding their lead in the NFC North to three games over the Vikings and Bears with a 41-25 win over Chicago last week. Aaron Rodgers is on cruise control with the offense but there are still question marks on defense. Philadelphia should make the Packers' defenders look good, but maybe not that good. This could be a lot closer than many would like.

Coin Flip: Philadelphia

Prediction: Packers 29 Eagles 24

New England Patriots at Los Angeles Chargers (even, 47) 4:25 pm (CBS) - Every time the Patriots look like they're checking out of the playoff race, they manage to find another win and stay in the hunt, as they did last week, winning, 20-17, over Arizona as home underdogs. Credit the coaching of Bill Belichick for keeping New England going.

At 3-8, the Chargers aren't going anywhere soon, but their quarterback, Justin Herbert, could be the NFL offensive rookie of the year and he's kept the Chargers in some tight games. He's the reason this is a pick game, but New England's defense is the key to victory and they should have a set-up devised to shut down LA's offense.

Coin Flip: New England

Prediction: Patriots 26 Chargers 21

Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs (-14, 51) 8:20 pm (NBC) - As Denver has quarterback issues, as in Drew Lock, Blake Bortles, or Brett Rypien, none of whom measure up to the incomprable Patrick Mahomes, this isn't a good fit for Denver.

KC won at Denver, 43-16, back in week seven. This could be worse.

Coin Flip: Denver

Prediction: Chiefs 45 Broncos 10

Monday December 7

Washington Football Team at Pittsburgh Steelers (-9 1/2, 44) 5:00 pm (Fox) - Assuming the Steelers come out of their Wednesday night meeting with Baltimore a winner, they'll be 11-0, while Washington fights for survival in the NFC East, where they enter the week tied with the Giants for first place at 4-7. The former Redskins have won two straight and are competitive with Alex Smith behind center. Could be the upset of the season as the former Redskins have their offense in good shape and are solid defensively.

Coin Flip: Washington

Prediction: Footballers 27 Steelers 24

Buffalo Bills (-2 1/2, 48) at San Francisco 49ers 8:15 pm (ESPN) - Buffalo best not be suffering jet lag because the "Niners are getting healthy in a hurry. Nick Mullens is playing about as well as he can, and with Raheem Mostert and Deebo Samuel back from extended injuries, the offense should be quite competitive, as the Rams found out last week, opened by the 49ers, 23-20.

Buffalo's defense did well to hold down the Chargers in a 27-17 win at home last Sunday, but winning is essential to stay ahead of the Dolphins in the division. A solid Monday night affair here, with the home team likely to eke out a victory.

Coin Flip: San Francisco

Prediction: 49ers 24 Bills 21

Tuesday, December 8

Dallas Cowboys at Baltimore Ravens (-8 1/2, 45) 8:20 pm (Fox/NFLN) - Tough to know anything about the Ravens health-wise until later in the week, though the return of many of their front-line players is assured, including QB Lamar Jackson.

Baltimore has lost three straight while the Cowboys are coming off a humiliation by Washington, 41-16, on Thanksgiving, but are still in the race in the NFC East. The Ravens are on the verge of dropping out of the playoff race. With the Cowboys having high hopes, an upset may be in the cards.

Coin Flip: Dallas

Prediction: Cowboys 23 Ravens 20

Bye: Tampa Bay, Carolina
