N.F.L. Week 13 Predictions: Our Picks for Each Game

Jets (7-4) at Minnesota Vikings (9-2), 1 p.m., CBS

Line: Vikings -3 | Total: 45.5

For the second time in two seasons, Mike White swooped in for a game and upgraded the Jets offense. White had 22 completions on 28 passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns last week against the depleted Bears, but this is a Jets team that beat Miami and Buffalo this season behind Zach Wilson, thanks to talent around the field including the league’s fourth-best red-zone defense. The Vikings have weapons of their own, including Justin Jefferson, who has one fewer receiving yard (1,232) than the league leader, Tyreek Hill. Minnesota’s defense, however, is second only to Detroit in yards allowed per game and per play, so White could have another showcase. Pick: Jets +3

Pittsburgh Steelers (4-7) at Atlanta Falcons (5-7), 1 p.m., CBS

Line: Falcons -1 | Total: 41.5

Atlanta had a shot to beat the Commanders last week, but Marcus Mariota’s pass from the 4-yard line was picked off with 58 seconds left in the game. It was a familiar ending for the Falcons, who have lost five games by 6 points or fewer this season. Still, Atlanta is only a half-game back of the Buccaneers in the N.F.C. South, and their remaining schedule has just one team with a winning record. The Steelers are not that team. Despite Kenny Pickett having perhaps the best game of his season in a 24-17 win over the Colts on Monday night, the Steelers still average the second-fewest yards per play of any team in the N.F.L. Pick: Falcons -1

Green Bay Packers (4-8) at Chicago Bears (3-9), 1 p.m., Fox

Line: Bears +4 | Total: 43.5

There are still questions about who will play quarterback for both of these teams. Aaron Rodgers, already playing with a broken thumb, left last week’s loss with a rib injury. He said he expected to be ready for Sunday’s game though Jordan Love took the snaps in his absence and completed 6 of 9 passes for 113 yards, leading the Packers to 10 points in two possessions.

For the Bears, Justin Fields sat out last week with a separated shoulder and Coach Matt Eberflus had not said, as of Wednesday, whether Fields would play this week. The Bears have lost eight of their last nine, and seven of those losses came despite Fields’s putting up impressive numbers. If he’s out, it’s hard to picture Chicago covering this number. If he’s in, the Packers should still have an advantage with either of their quarterbacks under center. Pick: Packers -4

Jacksonville Jaguars (4-7) at Detroit Lions (4-7), 1 p.m., Fox

Line: Lions +1.5 | Total: 51

Trevor Lawrence threw for an astounding 173 yards and two touchdowns in the fourth quarter of the Jaguars’ 1-point upset over the Ravens last week. It would be foolish to expect a repeat, especially given the Jaguars’ struggles on the road, where the team has lost 21 of 22 games.

They match up well, though, with the Lions: The two teams can move the ball on offense, and their defenses are similarly atrocious. The market was nearly evenly split by midweek. In an even contest, take the points at home. Pick: Lions +1.5
