Week 12 is underway with four games getting underway in the 4:05/4:25 p.m. time slot. We’ve got some critical matchups that could shake up divisional standings as we wrap up the Thanksgiving weekend and head into the final stretch of the regular season. We already have some standings movement, with plenty to go the rest of the day.
We’ll be updating the standings throughout the rest of the today and Monday evening and maybe Tuesday if Ravens-Steelers happens this week.
The Dolphins beat the Jets to maintain pace with the Bills beat the Chargers. The Patriots won to hang around the division and wild card races.
It wasn’t pretty, but the Browns took care of business against the Jaguars. The Steelers and Ravens finally played and Pittsburgh held off a depleted Baltimore.
The Titans beat the Colts to take sole possession of first place. The Jaguars continue hanging a game back of the Jets in draft order.
The Raiders got crushed by Atlanta and drop to four games back of the Chiefs with five games to go. The Chargers lost in Buffalo while Denver looked as bad as expected without a traditional quarterback.
The Giants barely beat the Bengals, but it’s enough to get them into first place for the time being. Washington the Cowboys but loses the head-to-head tiebreaker to the Giants. The Eagles lost to the Seahawks and remain back of the Giants and Washington.
The Packers have all but settled the NFC North, beating the Bears to take a three-game lead with five remaining. Minnesota is hanging around the wild card race with a big late comeback win over the Panthers.
The Saints got their second win with Taysom Hill at QB while the Panthers wild card chances are likely over after a late loss to the Vikings. The Bucs lost to the Chiefs and now sit 2.5 games back of the Saints headed into their bye week.
Arizona lost a stunner to the Patriots and dropped two games back of first place in the division. The 49ers upset the Rams in LA and Seattle has a full game division lead with a win over the Eagles on Monday.
