The Best Pictures From the Weekend That Was in Sports

Another great weekend of sports action in the books. This was actually the fourth sports weekend in November, which of course sets us up for Thanksgiving and the final weekend of the month. The fifth sports weekend in November starts on Thursday with three NFL games and will continue with two days of College Football on Friday and Saturday. By the time Sunday rolls around, we'll all have had our share of tackle football.

Week 12 of the NFL season and Week 13 of the college football season are now in the books. There was some really good, but also some really bad action on the gridiron this weekend. For starters, what happened to the NFC North? The North is quickly becoming the NFC East, which has become a lot more respectable as of late.

The Vikings and Packers played to a tie. The Lions lost at home to the Bucs, and the Bears got shellacked by the Rams in St. Louis. It was an absolute crap day for the division. It was so bad, that not a single team won, despite the fact that two of them played each other. That's hard to do.

One of the surprises of the NFL season has no doubt been the emergence of the Arizona Cardinals. Bruce Arian's team is now 7-4 after knocking off one of the AFC's top teams with ease. It's too early to buy them as a legitimate playoff team, but things are clearly coming together at the right time in the desert.

So with all the action from around the country, of course comes some great pictures. Here are the top 25 images from the weekend that was in sports:
