NFL schedule 2012: Falcons face Giants in playoff rematch

Chris Trotman

Atlanta plays the team that knocked them out of last season's playoffs on Sunday in a big game for both teams.

After struggling in the past few weeks, the shine has come off the Falcons a bit, although they are still in great shape to secure home-field advantage in the NFC with an 11-2 record.

In contrast, the defending Super Bowl champion Giants, who travel to the Georgia Dome on Sunday, are in genuine must-win territory, as they are only a game ahead of both the Redskins and the Cowboys in the NFC East with an 8-5 record.

The rematch of last year's NFC Divisional round playoff game is one of the highlights of a busy weekend of NFL action, which could go a long way towards sorting out the playoff picture in both conferences.

Here's the full NFL schedule for Week 15, all times Eastern:

Thursday, Dec. 15:

Sunday, Dec. 16:
Monday, Dec. 17:
