The month of December and Week 13 of the 2022 NFL season will arrive on the same day, and by month's end we'll have a clearer picture of which teams are preparing for the playoffs and which are just about ready to move on to 2023.

The coaching carousel will be a major piece of discussion by the time we're ready to put a bow on the 2022 calendar year, as will the short-term plans for a number of quarterbacks either recovering from injuries, with contracts that are at issue, or both. This week, ESPN's NFL insiders Dan Graziano and Jeremy Fowler take a look at two of the highest-profile banged-up quarterbacks in Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford, consider the possibility of a Sam Darnold resurgence, handicap the current state of the MVP race and also offer their upset picks and fantasy football advice as the final full month of the regular season commences.
