The 2012 NFL schedule is entering the home stretch. Teams are fighting for playoff spots or jockeying for draft positioning as just under a third of the regular season remains.

There are four games this weekend featuring two teams with winning records.

The Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Baltimore Ravens in a game that could eliminate the Steelers in the AFC North race. Coupled with a loss by the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens could clinch the division.

There is an NFC North battle and a pair of games with a division leader hosting a team striving to make the playoffs.

Matchup of the Week: Minnesota at Green Bay

The attraction of this game is clear. Both teams have a shot at catching the Chicago Bears but the Minnesota Vikings' playoff aspirations go on life support if they drop this game.

This game should be a traditional NFC North battle. Adrian Peterson will challenge the Packers front seven, while the Packers will attempt to exploit the Vikings' secondary.

The advantage in this contest goes to the Packers who are attempting to rebound from a tough loss last weekend.


Underrated Matchup of the Week: Seattle at Chicago

It has been established time and again that Seattle can't win on the road. They've blown late leads in Detroit and Miami and dropped the ball against their division rivals.

The Bears will look to make the Seahawks 1-6 on the road this season and maintain their one-game lead over the Green Bay Packers.

Seattle will be desperate in this game, though. They know they might have to finish the regular season without their starting cornerbacks, making this as close to a must-win tilt as they'll have.

Chicago seems to be out of Seattle's league, but the Bears have struggled against good defenses. Their wins have come against clubs that aren't normally known for applying a lot of defensive pressure.

Their losses are against the San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans and Green Bay Packers, all of whom brought a tough pass-rush and kept the Bears' offense off balance.

If the Seahawks can pressure Jay Cutler and keep him from getting comfortable, this is a game they can win.
