2012 NFL schedule, Week 14: Possible playoff preview in store for Patriots, Texans

Mike Ehrmann

The Patriots' Monday night showdown with the AFC No. 1 seed Texans highlights a weekend full of NFL action.

A playoff spot and division title already locked up, the New England Patriots will watch the AFC East play on Sunday before testing themselves against the AFC No. 1 seed Houston Texans on Monday night in Week 14.

The Texans have already locked up a playoff berth, but still have some work to do to clinch the AFC South when they travel to Foxboro to take on the Patriots in the primetime showdown that could be a playoff preview.

The New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins are all 5-7 on the year and remain on the cusp of AFC wild card contention as the season enters its final four weekends.
