The NFL kicked off Week 13 with a battle between the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots, and as has become commonplace, Bills quarterback Josh Allen led his team to a victory (24-10). At 9-3, Buffalo continues to get it done on a weekly basis.
This weekend, there will be some entertaining football on television, but the early games on Sunday should be the most interesting to Detroit Lions fans.
In the 1 o’clock hour, your Lions take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on FOX, while the local (Detroit) CBS feed will have the Minnesota Vikings hosting the New York Jets. These are the Lions next two opponents (Vikings at home in Week 14 and in New York for Week 15) if you feel the need to record or flip over during commercials for some advanced scouting.
In the 4 o’clock hour, the second half of CBS’ doubleheader features the Kansas City Chiefs traveling to Ohio to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in a rematch of the AFC Championship game from last season's playoffs. Sunday wraps up with NBC on “Sunday Night Football” matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Dallas Cowboys.
