To properly rank the most watchable games of Week 13 in the 2012 NFL season, you have to know what is at stake and which teams are the most watchable right now.
Some games in the Week 13 schedule look like real clunkers, and they will be ranked accordingly. But there are a total of eight games in Week 13 featuring two divisional rivals squaring off. Since most of these rivalries are well established, most of them will turn out to be intense games for the viewers.
This far in the season all bye weeks have been eliminated, so we have a full slate of 16 games to rank. Looking at the early lines that were published by ESPN.com, the week offers five home underdogs (Tennessee, St. Louis, Miami, San Diego and Washington). There are also two even or pick 'em games, featuring Carolina at Kansas City and Pittsburgh at Baltimore.
Some teams still have injuries to quarterbacks that will be awaiting medical clearance, so we can only rank each game according to the updates that have been released by every team prior to publication.
We begin with our least watchable game and work our way up to the best matchup to see in Week 13.
