December is upon us and so is Week 13 of the NFL. With every passing week, the games become more and more meaningful. The NFL has been exciting all season long and Week 13 of the NFL should be no different.

Here’s what to watch for in Week 13 of the NFL:

1. Dolphins Vs. 49ers

This is a match-up between two of the hottest teams in the NFL right now. The 49ers are winners of 4 in a row while the Dolphins have won 5 in a row. The 49ers' defense has been shutting down teams while the Dolphins have one of the most explosive offenses in the league. This should be one of the more fun matchups of the week.

2. Deshaun Watson's Debut

Deshaun Watson will be making his debut this week against his former team, the Houston Texans. Watson had been suspended for the 11 games of the season stemming from more than two dozen sexual harassment lawsuits and has sat out the previous 23 games in total. When he last played he was one of the best quarterbacks in the league but it's fair to wonder if he will be at the same level after such a long layoff.

3. Can Mike White Do It Again?

The Jets offense looked as good as it did all season last week against the Bears with Mike White at quarterback, but now they’ll face a more formidable opponent in the Vikings. The Vikings have had an up-and-down stretch the past few weeks but are 9-2 and have been one of the best teams in the NFL this week.

4. NFC East matchup between Washington and NY Giants

The Giants will square off against the Commanders this Sunday and it’ll be a massive game for both sides. All four teams in the NFC East are currently in the playoffs, so positioning is key. A win or loss could be huge in terms of playoff positioning. The Commanders have won 3 in a row and 6 of their last 7 and the Giants have lost 2 in a row.

5. AFC Championship rematch between Chiefs and Bengals

In what could be the best game of the week, the Chiefs will face the Bengals in last year’s AFC Championship rematch where the Bengals came out on top. The Bengals got off to a slow start this season, but have since rattled off three straight victories. The Chiefs are playing as well as anyone in the NFL right now at 9-2. This is a highly-anticpated matchup.
