The Atlanta Falcons already hold a commanding division lead on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They can virtually lock the division up this week, as they head south to face the Bucs on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

Atlanta comes into the game having beaten Arizona last week, pulling out a 23-19 victory despite five Matt Ryan interceptions. The Buccaneers are on a four-game winning streak, defeating Carolina behind 138 rushing yards by Doug Martin.

Other NFL action this week is highlighted by Thanksgiving games, with three on tap for Thursday. The Patriots face the Jets in the Thanksgiving Day primetime showdown.

Here is the full NFL schedule for Week 12, all times are Eastern:

Thursday, Nov. 22
