Here are four teams to watch that aren’t the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13

With only five weeks left in the NFL regular season, the race for the NFC East is narrowing. And Week 13 has become a pivotal point in the schedule with all four teams in the division, including the Dallas Cowboys, all playing road games against teams with winning records.

While the 3-8 Cowboys’ game against the 6-5 Baltimore Ravens has been pushed to Tuesday night, here are four other contests worth watching on Sunday and Monday due to their possible impact on America’s Team.

Cincinnati Bengals (2-8-1) at Miami Dolphins (7-4), Sunday – Noon CT

You can bet the Cowboys’ coaches and players will be watching the above matchup early Sunday afternoon. That’s because Dallas will have a short five-day turnaround following their Tuesday night game in Baltimore to prepare to play the Bengals in Ohio on Sunday, Dec. 13 in Week 14. Cincinnati has lost six of their last seven contests.

New York Giants (4-7) at Seattle Seahawks (8-3), Sunday – 3:05 p.m. CT

The NFC East-leading Giants face a tough challenge against the Seahawks in Seattle. And they’ll try to beat them with backup quarterback Colt McCoy under center. New York has won four of their last six games, but two of those wins came against the 4-7 Washington Football Team.

The other two victories came against the 3-7-1 Philadelphia Eagles and the 2-8-1 Cincinnati Bengals. The Giants have yet to defeat an opponent that currently has a winning record, which their next four opponents including the Seahawks do.

Philadelphia Eagles (3-7-1) at Green Bay Packers (8-3), Sunday – 3:25 p.m. CT

The Packers come into their Week 13 contest against the Eagles having won three of their last four games and having suffered only a single loss at Lambeau Field so far this season. As for Philly, the Birds are riding a three-game losing streak and are about to play their third road matchup in the past four weeks.

But the Football Team will have their hands full with the undefeated Steelers in Pittsburgh, who are just coming off a victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday.
