2012 NFL schedule: Steelers meet with rival Browns

J. Meric

The Steelers and third-string quarterback Charlie Batch will clash with Cleveland's Trent Richardson and and Brandon Weeden.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are going into their game against the Cleveland Browns on the road with an extraordinary set of circumstances.

Charlie Batch, the emergency third-string quarterback, will be starting with both Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich recovering from rib injuries.

Another Steeler who might be making an appearance is Plaxico Burress, who hasn't been with the team since 2004. However, injuries to the receiving corps have left the door open for Burress, who had been out of football all year.

Other games to watch this week include a Thanksgiving Day matchup between the Houston Texans and Detroit Lions.

Houston is 9-1 and certainly looking like the best team in the AFC. On the other hand, Detroit has been a huge disappointment, sitting in last place in the NFC North but not totally out of the playoff picture,

On Sunday night, the New York Giants host the Green Bay Packers in a rematch of last year's NFC divisional playoff game. The Giants are trying to right their ship after two straight losses, while Green Bay is attempting to take a stranglehold on the NFC North.
