Patriots vs. Jets 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Al Bello

The New York Jets will have their archenemy in town for Thanksgiving, as the New England Patriots come for a visit.

The New York Jets and New England Patriots will renew their rivalry on Thanksgiving as the Patriots try to go 2-0 against the Jets and put their NFC East little brother in a bigger hole than they already are in.

The Jets have lost five of their last seven games and, at 3-6, are in must-win mode for the rest of the season just to have a prayer at making the playoffs. The Patriots, meanwhile, are 7-3 and once again atop the AFC East.

The Patriots will bring their fourth-ranked passing attack and fifth-ranked rushing attack to a Jets defense that's been inconsistent this season. The Jets give up only 200.1 passing yards per game, which is fourth in the league, but they give up 141.9 rushing yards per game, which is 30th. In an interesting turn of events, the Patriots may rely on their running game more than Tom Brady in order to knock off the Jets.

The Jets lost a heartbreaker to the Patriots the first time they played this season, on Oct. 21, when the Patriots won 29-26 in overtime.

Game Time: 8:20 pm ET

Television Coverage: NBC
