NFL TV Schedule 2019: Week 13 Games, Thanksgiving Schedule, Where to Watch, Live Stream, TV Channel

As Americans step up preparation for Thanksgiving, some NFL franchises have plenty to celebrate, while the turkey may be harder to digest for others.

The San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots fall in the former category, while the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders are firmly in the latter.

The 49ers improved to 10-1 with a 37-8 thrashing of the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football to begin a season-defining three-game stretch—San Francisco faces Baltimore and New Orleans next—in emphatic fashion.

The 49ers are in pole-position to clinch the No.1 seed in the NFC and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and the win over the Packers was as resounding a statement as any they have made this season.

"I don't know what else we can do to kind of say, 'Hey, we're a force to be reckoned with too.' But I think we sent that message tonight to not only the Green Bay Packers but the rest of the NFL, as well," 49ers offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey was quoted as saying by ESPN.

"We know what we have in here, and we know what we're capable of, and these next two weeks are going to be a good test again."

In Week 13, the 49ers take on the Ravens in Baltimore, while the Packers travel to New Jersey to take on a Giants team that has lost the last seven straight games. At 8-3, Green Bay shares the lead in the NFC West with the Minnesota Vikings, who return from their bye to take on the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football.

The Seahawks took a potentially decisive step towards securing a wildcard spot with a 17-9 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles, which improved their record to 9-2 and saw Philadelphia drop to 5-6.

The Eagles are second in the NFC East behind the 6-5 Dallas Cowboys and face an uphill race to secure a playoffs spot, although the easiest closing schedule in the NFL—beginning with a trip to Miami on Sunday—may work in their favor.

The Cowboys could have ended the Eagles' hopes with a road win against the Patriots but failed to seize the opportunity and lost 13-9, as New England yet again relied on its rock-solid defense.

With the win the Patriots improved to 10-1 and remain overwhelming favorites to clinch No.1 spot in the AFC, but their offense remains underwhelming. At the same time, the reigning Super Bowl champions have defeated Philadelphia and Dallas in consecutive weeks and could secure another statement win when they travel to Houston on "Sunday Night Football."

The Cowboys, meanwhile, host the 8-3 Buffalo Bills in one of the three games scheduled for Thanksgiving Day. As it's tradition, the Detroit Lions kick-off the festivities when they host the Chicago Bears in a battle of also-rans in the NFC North, while the New Orleans Saints round up Thanksgiving's football feast when they play the Falcons in Atlanta.

The Saints improved to 9-2 and have essentially secured another NFC South title after defeating Carolina 34-31.

Elsewhere, Oakland travels to Kansas City to face the Chiefs in a crucial AFC West matchup. The Raiders fell to 6-5 after a crushing 34-3 on the road against the New York Jets, while the Chiefs return from their bye at 7-4.

Here's all you need to know about Week 13.
