PF New York Gi­ants (3-7) at Phil­a­del­phia (4-6): The Ea­gles have lost three of their past four, turn over the ball too of­ten, and can’t make big de­fen­sive stops. New York has won two in a row to tem­po­rar­ily quiet the so­cial me­dia and tabloid com­plaints about Eli Man­ning. The vet­eran quar­ter­back has proven that given some time to throw – the O-line has vastly im­proved the past two weeks – he still can pro­duce.

Seat­tle (5-5) at Carolina (6-4): The win­ner here could place it­self in strong po­si­tion for a wild card. Carolina has lost two straight in a blowout at the hands of Pitts­burgh and then a one-point de­feat at Detroit when a 2-point con­ver­sion failed. Both teams will want to run the ball; Seat­tle leads the league in yards on the ground de­spite not hav­ing a stand­out run­ning back. Pitts­burgh (7-2-1) at Den­ver (4-6): An­to­nio Brown is tied for the league lead with 11 touch­down re­cep­tions and has at least one touch­down catch in eight con­sec­u­tive games. Den­ver comes off a stir­ring come­back vic­tory and line­backer Von Miller comes off an­other dom­i­nant per­for­mance with a key in­ter­cep­tion and his 100th sack. Mi­ami (5-5) at In­di­anapo­lis (5-5): The Dol­phins are reel­ing, com­ing off a bye af­ter losses in three of four, but ex­pect to have start­ing quar­ter­back Ryan Tan­nehill back from a shoul­der in­jury. Indy is one of the NFL’s hottest teams with four con­sec­u­tive vic­to­ries.

Green Bay (4-5-1) at Min­nesota (5-4-1): If Min­nesota doesn’t find a ground game, it’s likely doomed to be­ing home in Jan­uary; it ranks 31st. Green Bay has lost seven straight reg­u­lar-sea­son road games since Dec. 10.

New Eng­land (7-3) at New York Jets (3-7):

THURS­DAY, NOV. 29

New Or­leans at Dal­las .................. 8:20 p.m. SUN­DAY, DEC. 2

L.A. Rams at Detroit ......................... 1 p.m. Carolina at Tampa Bay ...................... 1 p.m. Ari­zona at Green Bay ......................... 1 p.m. Den­ver at Cincin­nati .......................... 1 p.m. Bal­ti­more at At­lanta ......................... 1 p.m. Chicago at N.Y. Gi­ants ....................... 1 p.m. Cleve­land at Hous­ton ........................ 1 p.m. In­di­anapo­lis at Jack­sonville ............... 1 p.m. Buf­falo at Mi­ami ............................... 1 p.m. N.Y. Jets at Ten­nessee ................. 4:05 p.m. Kansas City at Oak­land ................ 4:05 p.m. S.F. at Seat­tle .............................. 4:25 p.m. Min­nesota at New Eng­land .......... 4:25 p.m. L.A. Charg­ers at Pitts­burgh ......... 8:20 p.m. MON­DAY, DEC. 3

Wash­ing­ton at Phil­a­del­phia ......... 8:15 p.m. While the Pa­tri­ots are on pace for their tenth straight AFC East ti­tle, the heat on Jets coach Todd Bowles has in­ten­si­fied. New York has lost four in a row. Jack­sonville (3-7) at Buf­falo (3-7): Though Jack­sonville has dropped six in a row, its re­main­ing sched­ule is any­thing but dif­fi­cult. To not make some sort of turn­around would be in­ex­cus­able. The Bills keep com­ing at you, de­spite per­haps the league’s least-tal­ented of­fen­sive ros­ter. Their de­fense makes them com­pet­i­tive.

Ari­zona (2-8) at Los An­ge­les Charg­ers (7-3): The Charg­ers are in ex­cel­lent shape for a play­off berth. Philip Rivers has 23 touch­down passes and has thrown for at least 25 in 10 con­sec­u­tive sea­sons. Like LA, the Car­di­nals come off a late-game fold, against Oak­land. Oak­land (2-8) at Bal­ti­more (5-5): With Joe Flacco side­lined against Cincin­nati, first-round pick Lamar Jack­son brought a run­ning game to the QB po­si­tion. The Ravens rushed for 265 yards as Jack­son ran 27 times for 117 yards, Gus Ed­wards had 115 yards on the ground. The Raiders rank 31st in run de­fense. Cleve­land (3-6-1) at Cincin­nati (5-5): The Ben­gals have been rav­aged by in­juries, but a win would keep them in the wild-card chase. Nei­ther team plays much de­fense, so while this won’t be Chiefs-Rams, it could keep the score­board lit.

San Fran­cisco (2-8) at Tampa Bay (3-7): Bucs re­ceiver Mike Evans can join Hall of Famer Randy Moss (six con­sec­u­tive sea­sons) and A.J. Green (five) as the only play­ers in NFL his­tory with at least 1,000 re­ceiv­ing yards in each of their first five sea­sons. He fig­ures to get it against the 49ers.

Colville took ad­van­tage of four Royal turnovers (in­clud­ing a pick-6) to de­feat the Knights 31-28 on Satur­day in the WIAA Class 1A state foot­ball semi­fi­nals at Lions Field in Moses Lake.

The loss snaps a na­tional-best 53-game win streak by Royal, and it ends the Knights’ sea­son with a 12-1 record.

Colville, which handed Royal its pre­vi­ous last loss in 2014, goes to 10-2 and heads to Ta­coma next week­end for the 1A state ti­tle game.

The In­di­ans, who also blocked a Royal punt and re­turned a kick­off for a touch­down, used its run­ning game to chew up clock and con­trol the game.

Alonso Her­nan­dez had TD runs of 11 and 16 yards for the Knights.

An­gel Farias caught a 74-yard TD pass from Sawyer Jenks for Royal in the first half.
