The New York Jets host the New England Patriots during a three-game Thanksgiving schedule.

The NFL will have three games on three different networks as part of their Thanksgiving Day schedule, including the New England Patriots and the New York Jets renewing their rivalry in New York at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.

The Jets have lost five of their last seven games and dropped an overtime nail-biter to the Patriots when they played on Oct. 21. The Jets desperately need a win and, at 3-6, each game has turned into a must-win. The Patriots will be licking their chops to give the Jets another loss to further bury them in their current hole.

The Houston Texans will travel to the Detroit Lions in the first game of the day at 12:30 p.m. ET on CBS. The Texans are 9-1 and haven't lost an away game this season in four tries. The Lions have been up-and-down all season and need a win at 4-6.

The Washington Redskins will visit the Dallas Cowboys at 4:15 p.m. ET on FOX in a battle of two NFC East teams. The Redskins are trying to pull back to .500, while the Cowboys are trying to take advantage of their late-season schedule and catch the Giants in the division.
