NFL Week 12: Early Games Thread

Feel free to use this post as an open thread for today's 1:00 PM Game:

With the New England Patriots playing in the late afternoon at 4:15 PM ET against the Philadelphia Eagles, here are some games to monitor on the early slate of games:

Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars: This will be the Texans' first game without Matt Schaub, with Matt Leinart stepping in to replace him.  The Texans and Patriots are currently tied for the second seed in the AFC, both a half game back (one win) of the Baltimore Ravens, who beat the 49ers on Thursday night. Greg's Prediction: Texans 17 Jaguars 6

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets: The battle of the second place in the AFC East will feature two teams that are .500 and on two game losing streaks.  The winner of this game would appear most likely to challenge the Patriots for a playoff spot down the stretch. Greg's Prediction: Jets 24 Bills 10

Other 1:00 PM Games: Minnesota Vikings at Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals, Carolina Panthers at Indianapolis Colts, Arizona Cardinals at St. Louis Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Tennessee Titans
