USA TODAY Sports' Week 12 NFL picks: Do Bengals beat Titans again?
Week 12 of the 2022 NFL season kicks off with a Thanksgiving tripleheader, Thursday afternoon's matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants – both NFC East rivals are currently 7-3, two games back of the Philadelphia Eagles in the division – serving as the main course. But dessert should also be rather tasty, the New England Patriots visiting the wounded Minnesota Vikings in Thursday's nightcap.
No byes this weekend with all 32 teams back in action, though Sunday's leftovers don't appear quite as mouth watering. The best offering – and only one pairing squads with winning records – comes in Nashville, where the Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans will clash in a rematch of last season's divisional playoffs, when upstart Cincy knocked off the AFC's top-ranked team.
Eat up and a Happy Turkey Day to all.
