NFL Week 12 Sunday Schedule: Saints-Rams is a great battle of unlikely NFC contenders

Who would have predicted that this game would have such a big effect on the NFC playoff picture?

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Last year, the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams combined to win eleven games. The 7-9 Saints and 4-12 Rams each finished third in their respective divisions.

This season, however, the two franchises are atop the NFC South and West standings, respectively, and have far exceeded last year’s win total with six games to go apiece. That game headlines a light Sunday schedule, with just twelve games thanks to a trio of contests on Thursday.

Here’s the schedule for your Sunday football viewing.
