Week 13 in the NFL was a fantastic week of completive games, and many players put up some monster weeks.
But at this point in the season, some wins are bigger than others.
The playoff picture is starting to come into focus, and each week is crucial for teams chasing a playoff berth.
Here are two NFL teams that got big wins on Sunday.
The Cincinnati Bengals have had a weird year, they started the season 0-2 before ripping off eight wins in their last ten.
One of those wins came on Sunday, taking down the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24.
The Bengals needed to win this game to keep pace with the Ravens in the AFC North.
But, this game was also a statement opportunity for the Bengals to show they are still one of the top teams in the league.
Entering today, the Chiefs had won 26 straight games in Nov/Dec.

This was a game Cincinnati had to have as they improved to 8-4 on the year.
Plus, the Bengals have the fifth toughest strength of schedule remaining this year.
So continuing to rack up wins as they chase a division title will be crucial.
If you want to talk about big wins, no team had a more lopsided victory than the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
The Cowboys beat down the Indianapolis Colts 54-19 on Sunday Night.
After struggling for three-quarters of the game, the Cowboys led 21-19 heading into the fourth.
Then they put together one of the best quarters of the NFL season.
Dallas scored 33 points in the fourth quarter, which was led by takeaways from their defense.

The Cowboys caused all sorts of problems for Matt Ryan and the Colts’ offense in this game.
Their five takeaways tied their most in a single game this season.
Also for Dallas, this win kept them two games behind the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC East title.
This was a game the Cowboys had to have and they got it in style.
