The NFL is wrapping up the 1 p.m. ET window in Week 11 and before we know it we’ll be into Thanksgiving game week. In the meantime, we’re seeing some key wins as teams look to firm up their position in the division races.

The Eagles got a huge comeback win over the Colts and that coupled with the Giants losing to the Lions could send Philly into Week 12 with a two-game divisional lead. In the AFC East, the Bills handled their business against the Browns to move into a tie for first place with the Dolphins. The biggest game in the late window saw the Cowboys crush the Vikings in rather unexpected fashion. The day ended with the Chiefs stunning the Chargers in the closing seconds to take a three-game lead and clinch the head-to-head tiebreaker.
