Week 12 of NFL should be another week of exciting games and performances. We’re in the home stretch of the season but there is still a lot of important football to be played. 

Here’s what to watch for in week 12 of the NFL:

1. Titans and Bengals looking to establish themselves as legit contenders 

The Titans have one of the best records in the league at 7-3 but not many take them seriously as a contender. The Bengals are in a similar boat, coming off a Super Bowl appearance they are now at 6-4 and this could be a big win for them. Both these teams have something to prove and a win for either team could change the conversation around them.

2. Jets bench Wilson

The Jets have decided to bench Wilson after an awful performance that saw the Jets offense put up just 3 points against the Patriots. This week, the Jets face off against the Bears, who have the worst passing defense in the NFL. The Bears are 3-8 but Justin Fields has established himself as one of the most exciting players in the sport. It’ll be interesting to see how Jets QB Mike White performs as a starter and if he struggles, how soon they turn back to Wilson.

3. Chargers Vs. Cardinals

The Chargers are coming off a tough loss against the Chiefs and are now at 5-5. They are trying to make a push into the playoffs and a win over the Cardinals would help those odds. The Cardinals are expected to have Kyler Murray back and they are trying to finish the season strong. This should be a tight competitive game between two talented quarterbacks.

4. Will The 49ers keep rolling? 

The 49ers' offense is starting to click. The addition of Christian McCaffrey to an offense featuring George Kittle and Deebo Samuel has led to good results. Jimmy Garoppolo has taken the reigns and is putting his weapons in good positions to make plays. They are on a 3-game win streak and are looking to extend it against the Saints. 

5. Packers Vs. Eagles

The Eagles are looking to keep their lead in the NFC East and are facing up against the Packers who’ve had a roller-coaster season. The Packers are three games under .500 and their playoff chances seem bleak, but the have a chance to play spoiler. Jalen Hurts and Aaron Rodgers should make for a fun QB matchup.
