2012 NFL schedule, Week 14: Redskins host Ravens

Washington will look to stay in the playoff picture with a win against the Ravens.

Paul Frederiksen-US PRESSWIRE

The Week 14 NFL schedule is packed with good games, not the least of which is taking place in FedEx Field on Sunday afternoon.

The Washington Redskins will be hosting the Baltimore Ravens only six days after defeating the Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Washington desperately needs a win to stay in the NFC East hunt. At 6-6, the Redskins are only a game behind and are also in the thick of the Wild Card race.

Baltimore isn't in danger of missing the postseason, but it would certainly like a victory to erase last week's brutal loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Other games to watch include the Monday night affair featuring the New England Patriots and Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium. Tom Brady and company will have their hands full against a Texans team that only has one loss all year.

The New Orleans Saints are on the road this week, taking on the Giants. Big Blue is trying to recover from its third defeat in four games while the Saints are just hoping to keep whatever slim chance they have alive.
