NFL Week 12 preview: best games, key questions, predictions

We’re in Week 12 of the NFL season, and that means Thanksgiving Day football. And the schedule-makers must have known what they were doing with Thursday’s games—five of the six teams would be in the playoffs if the season ended with this week’s games.

But there’s still plenty of football to be played over the next few weeks as teams start to separate themselves as legit Super Bowl contenders. The hottest teams in the league are the Dolphins, Ravens and Chiefs—all with four-game winning streaks. And the Patriots and 49ers seem to be finding their grooves, too, with three consecutive wins.
