The storyline
The lack of consistent play from the defense makes both of these teams seem more like pretenders than contenders, yet here they are playing what could be a meaningful game in mid-November.

Why you should watch
This could be an entertaining game, but if you're interested in sound secondary play, turn the other way and cough. A must-win game for both teams if they are to put together a playoff resume (though I don't see either of them hitting those heights).
