Week 12 NFL Sunday Open Thread

The Denver Broncos play Sunday night, so stick around here to discuss all the days action leading up to the big game.

NFL: International Series-Houston Texans at Oakland Raiders Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos will take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football, but until then there are a couple of interesting games happening both early and late around the NFL.

Early Games

In the early set of games, the Arizona Cardinals could match up well against the Atlanta Falcons in a critical NFC matchup. The Cardinals need every win down the stretch to salvage their season. In the AFC, the Baltimore Ravens need to a win over the Cincinnati Bengals to keep the tiebreaker ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The San Diego Chargers at the Houston Texans should be an interesting game to watch. Somehow, the Texans are keeping their winning record despite a very poor season from Brock Osweiler.

Late Games

The only game that matters late is the Carolina Panthers at the Oakland Raiders. The Panthers are finding ways to lose close games, while the Raiders are finding ways to win their close ones. Hopefully they both buck that trend this week and Cam Newton finds a way to win on the road.
