Thursday night is the start of week 12 in the NFL and things are getting hot.
Teams are making their push to be playoff contenders, while others are fighting to just win their week 12 matchup.
However, there are two NFL teams who need to win during week 12.
2. Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills are in a situation which gives them a chance to get the number one seed in the playoffs.
However, it requires them to not look past the Detroit Lions.
While the Bills are a much better team than the Lions, teams who take them lightly as of late are losing.
This was the case with the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants, two teams who lost to the Lions.
However unlikely it seems Detroit is playing well (3 in a row) and the Bills aren’t right now for this Thursday!! They just beat the Giants on the road and it wasn’t close… could the Lions upset Bills for statement game? 🤷♂️🐬👍

If the Bills lose this game, they could slip down to eighth-place in the playoff race.
That’s why they need a win against a team that can easily shock them.
1. Cincinnati Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals find themselves in the playoff race, but can be easily ejected from that race.
With the Bengals going against the Tennessee Titans, they can’t afford a loss.
After losing a close game to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Titans are out to make a statement.
With the Bengals having some tough gamings coming up, they can’t let this game slip away.
Getting a win keeps them above the contenders for a playoff spot.
However, a loss can easily push them down a spot.
With their playoff hopes in their own hands, getting a win is needed for them to keep control of their destiny.
