Well, here we are New York Giants' fans. It is Sunday, Week 13 of the NFL season, and you have no Giants' game to watch. The Giants, of course, play Monday night against the Washington Redskins.

Here is a look at all of today's games, with our watchability guide.

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-9) at Buffalo Bills (4-7), 1 p.m. (CBS)

Hey, the Jaguars have Jason Babin now! Seriously, the only reason you are watching this game is if it is the only one you have access to wherever you live. Jaguars-Bills? I don't know why else you would watch.

Seattle Seahawks (6-5) at Chicago Bears (8-3), 1 p.m. (FOX)

Could we call this the 'Adderall Bowl,' with Seattle cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner playing while they appeal suspensions? Seriously, these two teams are pretty good and this should be an entertaining game.

Indianapolis Colts (7-4) at Detroit Lions (4-7), 1 p.m. (CBS)

One of these teams has a shot at the playoffs, and it isn't the team you would have expected at the beginning of the season. You get the idea that watching Colts' quarterback Andrew Luck is something that will always be worth your time. There is also the whole 'what stupid, dirty thing will Detroit's Ndamukong Suh do this week'?' angle. Memo to Luck: Protect your privates, young man.

Minnesota Vikings (6-5) at Green Bay Packers (7-4), 1 p.m. (FOX)

Would you really want to be the Vikings this week, playing the Packers the week after a bad loss to the Giants? You get to watch Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay and Adrian Peterson of Minnesota, two of the best players on the planet.

Carolina Panthers (3-8) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-10), 1 p.m. (FOX)

The Javon Belcher tragedy will hang over this game.

New England Patriots (8-3) at Miami Dolphins (4-7), 1 p.m. (CBS)

This has to be a better game than Patriots vs. New York Jets was on Thanksgiving night. Doesn't it?

Arizona Cardinals (4-7) at New York Jets (4-7), 1 p.m. (FOX)

This is really a meeting between two teams with one last shot to -- possibly -- make the rest of their season worth playing. I don't know if you need or want to watch this game, but you have to at least find out if Tim Tebow and his broken ribs are part of the active roster.

San Francisco 49ers (8-2-1) at St. Louis Rams (4-6-1), 1 p.m. (FOX)

Maybe this time there will be winner. Even if there isn't maybe you get to check out Colin Kaepernick's tattoos.

Houston Texans (10-1) at Tennessee Titans (4-7), 1 p.m. (CBS)

I missed this news tidbit, but the Titans recently fired offensive coordinator Chris Palmer, the former Giants' quarterbacks coach. That doesn't change the watchability, but it's something I wasn't aware of.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-5) at Denver Broncos (8-3), 4:05 p.m. (FOX)

The Peyton Mannings can clinch a playoff spot. Plus, you get to watch Doug Martin and wish he was a Giant.

Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5) at Baltimore Ravens (9-2), 4:25 p.m. (CBS)

The Steelers are in a must-win situation, and they are stuck with Charlie Batch at quarterback.

Cleveland Browns (3-8) at Oakland Raiders (3-8), 4:25 p.m. (CBS)

Can you think of a reason to watch this game? Me neither.

Philadelphia Eagles (3-8) at Dallas Cowboys (5-6), 8:20 p.m. (NBC)

Talk about waiting all day for Sunday night! This is the only game of the day that really matters to Giants' fans. The Eagles can do the Giants a huge favor by beating the Cowboys. Don't count on it, though.
