The later we get into the NFL season the more meaningful certain games on the schedule get, and with the second half of the season having arrived for everyone there will be critical games each week. Let's take a quick look around the league at some of the best games of the day not involving the New York Giants.
New Orleans (6-3) at Atlanta (5-3), 1 p.m. ET: May not directly impact the Giants. Then again, it might if the Giants end up fighting for a wildcard. If that's the case, you probably have to root for the Saints here.
Arizona (2-6) at Philadelphia (3-5), 1 p.m. ET: Maybe this game is not a gimme for the Eagles. You can always hope, right?
Detroit (6-2) at Chicago (5-3), 4:15 p.m. ET: Another one of those games that should be entertaining, but will only impact the Giants if it comes down to an end of the season chase for a wild-card spot.
New England (5-3) at New York Jets (5-3), 8:20 p.m. ET: Do you root for the Patriots here, just because you simply can't root for the Jets? Do you not care? Like the teams or not, Pats vs. Jets is always fun.
