The standings are close as NFL teams begin their playoff push. Through the first 11 weeks, there are 23 teams either in or within one game of a playoff spot. Two others sit just one-and-a-half games out.
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (7-3) at ARIZONA CARDINALS (6-4) (Sunday, CBS, 4:05 PM ET)
Last season, interim head coach BRUCE ARIANS guided the Colts to a playoff berth and was named the 2012 AP NFL Coach of the Year. Now with Arizona, Arians has led the Cardinals to a 6-4 start, the most wins by a head coach in his first 10 games with the team since CHARLEY WINNER in 1966. Arians is the first person to be named NFL Coach of the Year and then face that team the following season as the head coach of a different team.
DALLAS COWBOYS (5-5) AT NEW YORK GIANTS (4-6) (Sunday, FOX, 4:25 PM ET)
Entering Week 12, the Philadelphia Eagles (6-5), Dallas Cowboys (5-5) and New York Giants (4-6) are separated by just one-and-a-half games for the top spot in the NFC East.
Dallas, who is coming off a bye, defeated New York 36-31 on Kickoff Weekend. In his past four starts against the Giants, Cowboys quarterback TONY ROMO has 12 touchdowns, three interceptions and a 117.7 passer rating.
