This weekend, the NFL is still cleaning up the pandemic-related mess in Aisle 12.

Week 13’s originally-scheduled Thursday Night Football matchup with the Dallas Cowboys (3-8) traveling to face the Baltimore Ravens (6-5) will now be played Monday at 4 p.m. Arrowhead Time. The other team that played on Wednesday — the 11-0 Pittsburgh Steelers — will now host the Washington Football Team (4-7) at 7:05 p.m Arrowhead Time on Tuesday.

The Kansas City Chiefs (10-1) will have another Sunday Night Football appearance — this one an AFC West contest against the Denver Broncos (4-7) at Arrowhead Stadium.

Elsewhere in the AFC West, the Las Vegas Raiders (6-5) travel to play at New York Jets (0-11) during Sunday’s early games, while the Los Angeles Chargers (3-8) open their house to the New England Patriots (5-6) during the late matchups.

The normally-scheduled Monday Night Football game will have the Buffalo Bills (8-3) on the road to play the San Francisco 49ers (5-6). Well... actually... both teams will be traveling. After California’s Santa Clara County banned all sporting events (and practices) because of the coronavirus pandemic, the 49ers will play their next two home games at State Farm Stadium in Phoenix.

In Sunday’s early games, the Cleveland Browns (8-3) will face a big test against the Tennessee Titans (8-3) in Nashville. The late games will feature an important NFC West matchup: the Los Angeles Rams (7-4) traveling to a now-busy State Farm Stadium to play the Arizona Cardinals (6-5).

PLEASE NOTE: AP staff picks for the upcoming Chiefs game are not revealed in this article — nor does it contain a reader poll for the Chiefs game. Both of those are found in our weekly Chiefs score and predictions article.

Here are our picks for this weekend’s games. Be sure to cast your vote, too!
