2012 NFL schedule, week 12: Both New York teams prepping for big games

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

Thanksgiving brings a rivalry game between the New York Jets and New England Patriots while the New York Giants will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

The New York Jets will host the New England Patriots at 8:20 p.m. ET as part of the three-game Thanksgiving slate. The Jets are struggling, losing five of their last seven games and lost a heartbreaker to the Patriots when they played on Oct. 21, 29-26, in overtime. At 3-6, a loss here could effectively end the Jets' season and the Patriots would like nothing more than to be the team to do it.

The New York Giants will host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Nov. 25 as the NFL will have 12 games on Sunday to complement the three games on Thursday and the Monday night game between the Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles. The Giants have lost two straight after a four-game winning streak and will look to get back into the win column against a banged-up but still red-hot Packers squad that has won five games despite missing key pieces to their roster at various points.

The NFC East will have the Washington Redskins visit the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving at 4:15 p.m. ET. In the AFC East, the Buffalo Bills will face the Colts in Indianapolis at 1 p.m. ET.

The rest of the schedule is here.
