Who plays Sunday night football tonight, week 13
The Broncos and the Chiefs are battling it out for AFC West supremacy, while the Ravens and the Steelers collide in an AFC North matchup on Sunday.
The AFC West showdown between the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs and the AFC North matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers headline Sunday football.
Baltimore has an 8-3 record after croaking out an unspectacular win against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12, despite Lamar Jackson’s four interceptions. Jackson seems repentant of his performance and plans to come back with a vengeance. This might be a problem for the defense of the Steelers, who have been missing the services of T.J. Watt.

Pittsburgh is coming from a three-game losing streak and badly needs a win to stay in contention for the playoffs. Their offense has not been balanced recently, relying heavily on quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. If the Ravens manage to rush effectively against the 39-year-old, the Steelers will struggle in a game that is expected to be defense-dominated.

Highlight game of the Week: Broncos vs. Chiefs
The NFL flexed the Broncos at Chiefs game in the Sunday night slot over the San Francisco 49ers vs. the Seattle Seahawks matchup, and with good reason. This AFC West collision can have significant implications on the playoffs, as the winner will end up at the top spot of the division.
If Kansas City wins, they will pull away as the leader of AFC West. But if the Broncos find a way to neutralize Patrick Mahomes and prevail, it will further muddy the playoff waters in the competitive division, where all four teams are angling to be number one this week.

The Chiefs head into Sunday’s game with a four-game winning streak, after a rocky 3-4 season start. Meanwhile, the Broncos have an erratic record, with winning and losing streaks, although they do enter the matchup after winning three of their last four games. Denver also hopes to break their losing streak against KC, as they have not won against the Chiefs since 2015.
