NFL Week 13 review: 49ers down Eagles in statement win

Even though six teams were on their bye week, it was still another dramatic weekend as the NFL reached Week 13.

While some teams jostled for playoff spots and seeding, others moved closer to the No.1 draft pick, and it promises to be a fascinating final few weeks.

Let's review the highlights from Week 13. 

49ers get their revenge

The San Francisco 49ers were involved in the biggest matchup of the week, and they showed no signs of buckling under the pressure as they cruised past NFC rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles.

Kyle Shanahan's team lost to the Eagles in last year's NFC Championship match, but there was no doubt about the result this time around.

The 49ers put themselves forward as potential favorites for the NFL Championship despite a slow start that saw them generate minus six yards in the first quarter.

Once they found their groove, it was game over, as they won 42-19 in a bruising encounter at Lincoln Financial Field.

49ers quarterback Brock Purdy threw four touchdown passes and picked up 314 passing yards, while wide receiver Deebo Samuel scored three touchdowns from just seven touches.

The 49ers are now +300 to win the NFL Championship this season, and Sunday's win sent a statement to the rest of the league.

Shanahan's team have dismantled some good teams in recent weeks and they have impressed since their bye, suggesting there could be more to come.

The Eagles, who are +600 to win the NFL Championship, need to regroup and they have a tricky few weeks, with a trip to Dallas up next for them.

Packers keep playoff hopes alive

Jordan Love guided the Green Bay Packers to their third successive win as they proved too much for the Kansas City Chiefs. The Packers ran out 27-19 winners as they moved one step closer to the playoffs.

Wide receiver Christian Watson caught seven passes for 71 yards and two touchdowns, as the Packers moved to 6-6 for the season.

The Packers had a 45 percent chance of making the playoffs before kick-off, but they are starting to click at the right time under coach Matt LaFleur.

Green Bay are still third in the highly competitive NFC North, but with Love and Watson starting to form a fine partnership, anything is possible.

The Packers do not face a team with a winning record in the final five weeks of the campaign, and they are -220 to make the playoffs this season.

Kansas City is 8-4 and should be able to bounce back, but the Chiefs are not the same team they were last year when they won the title.

Dolphins make history in Washington win

The Miami Dolphins are now 9-3 for the first time in 22 years after they beat the Washington Commanders 45-15. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill finished with 157 yards on five receptions, and he picked up 78-yard and 60-yard touchdown catches.

Mike McDaniel's team are exciting to watch and they should be able to give anyone a game thanks to their superior offense, but they did suffer two worrying injuries.

LT Terron Armstead was taken off for the second straight game, while linebacker Jerome Baker sustained a knee injury.

The Dolphins are +800 to go all the way this season and they should be able to continue their winning run when they face the Tennessee Titans at home next week.

Colts leave it late

The Indianapolis Colts are now 7-5 after they beat the Titans 31-28 in overtime. Gardner Minishew threw the winning touchdown to help his team win their third game in a row and they are 5-1 away from home.

Thankfully for the Colts, they are on the road again in Week 14, travelling to take on the Cincinnati Bengals.

Indianapolis will need to find some more consistency with their rush attack now that Jonathan Taylor has suffered a thumb injury, but they are -180 to make the playoffs.

AFC East pair struggle once again

Fans of the New York Jets and New England Patriots have endured another frustrating season and Week 13 added to their woes.

The Jets dropped Zach Wilson earlier in the year, but neither Tim Boyle nor Trevor Siemian could get the offense going, with Robert Saleh using both quarterbacks in their 13-8 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Having started the year as playoff contenders, the Jets are now potentially in the running for a top-five draft pick, but they will be behind the Patriots, who lost 6-0 to the Los Angeles Chargers to move to 2-10 for the season.
