With the midway point of the 2013 NFL season coming up, Week 7 offers several pivotal matchups that will alter the playoff race before the second half gets under way. Several teams that expected to start better than they have face must-win situations while many teams that are off to surprising starts are also face win-or-else scenarios to stay ahead in their respective division title races.

Fortunately for NFL fans, many of said teams are playing against one another in Week 7 and several of those matchups are intra-division contests, which means you can throw out the records. However, considering these are must-win games for most of the teams involved, that only raises the stakes even higher.

Here are five games you can't miss this weekend:

The Bengals at the Lions features two inconsistent teams with tons of potential and identical records that can both cement themselves as playoff contenders with a victory. This one should provide scoring in every way possible.

The Patriots at the Jets is always entertaining and should be with New England struggling to put points on the board and New York playing surprisingly well every other week. Which Green Gang team will show up on Sunday?

The Ravens at the Steelers is another rivalry that always produces a close game, regardless of the circumstances. If you love hard hitting and lots of trash talk, make sure you're in front of the TV for this one.

The Cowboys at the Eagles should see about 80 points scored and it's a showdown between a pair of 3-3 teams for first place in the NFC Least. Expect things to get scrappy.

The Broncos at the Colts is our game of the week because Peyton Manning's undefeated Denver squad is making the trip to the house he built to face his successor, Andrew Luck, and an upstart Indy team. It just doesn't get any better than this.
