Week 12 of the 2021 NFL season begins with three Thanksgiving Day games.
The AFC and NFC playoff pictures couldn’t be murkier. Last week, with the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans losing, was a reminder there is nothing certain in the league this season. No team is safe from being upset and possibly losing standing when it comes to the playoffs.
There’s a lot on the line this week. Here’s what’s going down.
