NFL schedule 2012, Week 13: Patriots aim to extend lead on division against Miami

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE

The Patriots' first meeting with the Dolphins this season gives them a chance to extend their three-game division lead.

The New England Patriots will square off against the Miami Dolphins in a key AFC East battle, one of the weekend's highlights as the season comes to its final stretch.

With five weekends remaining, the Patriots have pulled away from the AFC East, but the surprising 5-6 Dolphins have stayed alive and are three back of the 8-3 Patriots after Week 12 action. The meeting between the two teams in Miami will be their first of the season, with another scheduled for the last weekend of the season in Foxboro.

Elsewhere in the AFC East, the Arizona Cardinals will travel to take on the New York Jets, who the Patriots defeated easily on Thanksgiving night, while the Buffalo Bills are faced with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Here are some key weekend games to keep an eye on:

New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins, Dec. 2, 1 p.m. on CBS

Arizona Cardinals vs. New York Jets, Dec. 2, 1 p.m. on FOX

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Buffalo Bills, Dec. 2, 1 p.m. on CBS
