The end of the regular season is fast approaching, with every game in Week 13 having major ramifications on conference leads and the race for the NFL playoffs.
ESPN Australia New Zealand has another six live NFL games in Week 13, beginning on Monday December 7.
Monday’s triple-header begins with a battle between two sides in the NFC South, a conference in which New Orleans remain in control.
At 9-2, the Saints are on an eight game winning streak, however they run into a red-hot Falcons side that routed the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 12.
The 43-6 demolition could just be the spark Atlanta need in the final weeks of the regular season.
At 8am, a huge clash in the NFC West takes centre stage as the Los Angeles Rams meet the Arizona Cardinals.
The conference is separated by less than two wins, and it remains there for the taking, ensuring this is a huge showdown.
Los Angeles fell just short to San Francisco in Week 12, courtesy of a last second field goal. The 23-20 defeat is a blow to their conference title chances, and they will not want to drop another to the Cardinals.
Monday’s action concludes at 12.15pm AEDT as the Denver Broncos look to bounce back from a disappointing display in Week 12, against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Denver were severely hampered by inactive roster members, and were never really in the contest in the 31-3 defeat to New Orleans.
They will need to get that sorted quickly, as Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are finding their groove at the right time of the season.
The Chiefs snuck past the Buccaneers 27-24, and will be heavy favorites against Denver.
Tuesday sees another two matches, with the action beginning at 9am AEDT as the Pittsburgh Steelers clash with Washington.
The Steelers have been the most dominant team in the NFL all season and they will hope to continue that run against Washington in Monday’s opener.
Amazingly, Washington could sit atop the NFC East at the end of Week 13, despite a record of 4-7 to this point.
Just percentage keeps Washington behind the New York Giants in the conference standings, and if they can somehow manage a win over the undefeated Steelers, they will be worthy leaders.
Following at 12.15pm AEDT is the Buffalo Bills and the San Francisco 49ers.
The Bills currently lead the AFC East and simply must keep winning, as the wave of optimism grows in upstate New York.
San Francisco took home a major scalp in Week 12, with a clutch win over the Rams.
They come across an in-form Bills side, who will test what the 49ers are truly made of in 2020.

Then completing the Week 13 coverage on Wednesday December 9 at 12pm AEDT is the Dallas Cowboys and the Baltimore Ravens.
The Ravens have had an unsettled few weeks, with schedule changes forcing them into a short turnaround against Dallas.
Both the Ravens and Cowboys are still fighting for a playoff berth.
The Cowboys are bottom of the NFC East, but just one win separates the entire conference. While Baltimore simply cannot afford to lose if they are to remain in the hunt for the post-season.
