NFL Football Previews- Week 12
The NFL season is now officially headed down the home stretch as the Thanksgiving Day football games take place and the final six games of the season for the 32 teams take place as we head into the month of December following this week's action.
The big games this week features the New York Giants at Denver Broncos on Thanksgiving night on NFL Network.
Both of these teams are 6-4 and are in heated battles with numerous teams in their respective conferences for a wild card spot.
Then on Sunday when the Arizona Cardinals face the revitalized Vince Young and the Tennessee Titans in Nashville. The Pittsburgh Steelers will be at Baltimore in a huge game for possible playoff implications on Sunday Night Football on NBC. Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger says he will play despite suffering a concussion last week in the Steelers' surprise loss at Kansas City.
The Indianapolis Colts look to stay perfect this season when they play at Houston. The Texans are 5-5 following Monday night's crushing loss to Tennessee, and will be fighting possibly for their playoff chances in this one.
The BIG GAME of course will be Monday Night Football on ESPN when the New England Patriots take on the New Orleans Saints in the Louisiana Super Dome.
The Saints, thanks to home field advantage, are three-point favorites to win the game. After all, like the Colts they are a perfect 10-0 this season.
But never count out Tom Brady and the Patriots no matter what.
This game should live up to it's billing and New England fans are hopeful that Head Coach Bill Belichick makes the right call this time around if faced with another crucial fourth down decision in crunch time.
Happy Thanksgiving everybody from heftyinfo and here goes another shot at picking the winners for this week's full slate of games around the NFL.
