Every week, Game Changers will be highlighting some of the marquee matchups around the NFL with screenshots of Madden NFL 25 on Xbox One and PS4. Here is a look at Week 13 of the NFL season:

Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions (12:30 PM EST kickoff, Thursday)

No two teams have faced off on Thanksgiving more than the Packers and Lions. If the Lions can end the Packers’three-game win streak against them on Thanksgiving, they will improve to 7-5 and will control their own destiny in the NFC North. 

Oakland Raiders at Dallas Cowboys (3:30 PM EST kickoff, Thursday)

The Cowboys are coming off of a big win against the Giants, while the Raiders are coming off of a last-second loss to the Titans. Raiders rookie Matt McGloin will start for Oakland against a Dallas team that’s looking to win their seventh game of the season.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens (8:30 PM EST kickoff)

Both the Steelers and Ravens have had disappointing starts to their seasons, and both teams need to win on Thanksgiving night to improve to 6-6 and stay alive in the AFC Wild Card picture.

Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs (4:25 PM EST kickoff)

These two teams faced off two weeks ago, with the Broncos winning by 10 in Denver.. This time, the Chiefs defense will try to pressure Peyton Manning, while the fans at Arrowhead Stadium will try and play a factor. The Chiefs are looking to rebound from a loss last week to the San Diego Chargers.

New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks (8:40 PM EST kickoff, Monday)

The Saints travel to Seattle for the first time since 2010 and the infamous “Beast Mode” run by Marshawn Lynch. Both teams are at the top of the NFC, and a win here would go a long way in securing a first-round bye (and possibly home field advantage.)

I hope you enjoyed the screenshots for Week 13! Let me know on Twitter (@Kevin26385) which games I should capture for Week 14.
