Chicago Bears (5-6) at Detroit Lions (3-7-1)

12:30pm ET/10:30am PT, FOX

Chicago’s offense versus Detroit’s defense. Make sure the kids aren’t around if you’re watching this. It’s quite vulgar.

If there’s neutral intrigue here, it’s probably just curiosity for third-string rookie QB David Blough. The undrafted free agent out of Purdue is expected to get his first NFL start. Rookie with nothing to lose getting a shot? That’s fun! Remember Minshew Mania? Man, that feels like a year ago...

Buffalo Bills (8-3) at Dallas Cowboys (6-5)

4:30pm ET/1:30pm PT, CBS

This is the only game with two teams featuring records, so enjoy it with some turkey.

I would like the Buffalo Bills’ 2019 schedule, please. They have eight wins from seven teams who are a combined 19-58. Shout out to former Minnesota Vikings Head Coach and current Bills Defensive Coordinator Leslie Frazier. He has put together a really strong group...but that offense...

Meanwhile, nobody does drama like the Dallas Cowboys. Despite three playoff appearances in the last five years and a playoff win over the Seattle Seahawks last year, Cowboys fans have just about had it with Head Coach Jason Garrett. The Cowboys are in the lead in the NFC East at 6-5, but that’s the worst record of any current division leader especially in the toney NFC. This is pretty much a must-win for Garrett’s hopes at remaining employed in Dallas in 2020.

New Orleans Saints (9-2) at Atlanta Falcons (3-8)

8:20pm ET/5:20pm PT, CBS

Here’s to a late pass interference no call for the Falcons.
