The Packers and Lions are all finished, so it's time to go gorge yourself on turkey, stuffing, maybe some sweet potato casserole, and whatever other dishes you enjoy on this holiday. Well, if you're not still watching football and sitting in front of a computer, of course. If you're doing that, keep it here on APC and join us to discuss the other two games on today!

Oakland Raiders (4-7) at Dallas Cowboys (6-5)

The Raiders come into Dallas this year for the CBS game, and despite a 4-7 record they're just a game back from the last wild-card spot in the AFC. That's right, the two Wild-Card teams as of right now are the 9-2 Chiefs and the 5-6 Titans. The Cowboys, on the other hand, are tied with the Eagles for the NFC East lead.

Pittsburgh Steelers (5-6) at Baltimore Ravens (5-6)

What if I told you that the Packers are the only team who has beaten the Ravens at home this year? It's true, as Baltimore is 4-1 at home but 1-5 on the road. In come the Steelers, who are quietly working their way back from an abysmal start to the season to come within a game of .500 and in a tie for the last wild-card playoff spot in the AFC.

We hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday and are spending it with people you love.
