Don't have DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket? Well, neither do I. However, Thanksgiving weekend is often one of those rare times that even us schlubs without DirecTV get three games on a Sunday afternoon, and that is indeed the case today. The Redskins traveling to the Pacific Northwest to face the Seahawks is of course what folks in this area care most about, but we will also be treated to some quality AFC East action on CBS. After the jump, your NFL Week 12 television schedule:
Late Game, FOX, Washington @ Seattle: The Redskins travel west hoping to avoid their seventh straight loss. Can Rex Grossman repeat his above-average performance of a week ago? Can the ground game, behind Ryan Torain and Roy Helu, muster something better than the 55.5 yard average the team has in the past six games? Despite the Seahawks being a mediocre team, it's tough to win in Seattle. Washington's swoon is likely to continue. Ron Pitts and Jim Mora Jr. will be the broadcast team, and should have you longing for Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston and Tony Siragusa by sometime in the second quarter.

Early Game, CBS, Buffalo @ NY Jets: The Bills are in freefall, having lost their last three games 106-26. That's chum in the water for a Rex Ryan defense, at home, fighting for their playoff lives. I am in no way a gambler, but I'd bet the house on the Jets. Marv Albert and Rich Gannon have the call.
Late Game, CBS, New England @ Philadelphia: The Eagles are looking to knock off their second straight division leader with Vince Young at quarterback. The Patriots have won their last two games by a combined score of 71-19. I'm taking Tom Brady. Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf will be offering up the obvious for you all afternoon long.
