Internet having massive lag spikes later in the day

Hello, me and my brother play games after school (about 2 pm) and while the internet is perfectly fine during the school day (7-2) after around 3 pm the internet has massive spikes out of nowhere and it keeps happening making games unbearable to play or just talking to friends. Some issues that I think is the reason(s) for the internet being bad are:

We are both playing at the same time

The game(s) we play are demanding

We are using another program to talk to friends

There may be some type of setting on the router/ xfinity app 

Or the router is outdated

 

I hope we can find a fix for this because it is very annoying.
