NFL Schedule 2012: Cardinals host struggling Bills in Week 6

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Week 6 of the NFL schedule offers a golden opportunity for the Cardinals to take back the lead in the NFC West.

The Arizona Cardinals host the Buffalo Bills in Week 6 of the 2012 NFL schedule. The Cardinals are 4-1 after their first loss of the season on the road to the St. Louis Rams last Thursday. The Bills are 2-3 after dropping consecutive games where the team gave up over 1,200 yards of offense combined. Arizona and Buffalo kick off at 2:05 p.m. MT Sunday on CBS.

If the Cardinals can pull off what should be a comfortable win, they could take the lead in the NFC West. Some of their conference rivals are facing much tougher opponents on Sunday. The Seattle Seahawks' stifling defense gets its biggest test of the season when it hosts Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at 2:05 p.m. MT on CBS. The 49ers have a rematch of the NFC Championship game when they take on the Giants. San Francisco and New York are set to begin at 2:25 p.m. MT on FOX.

The top-billed matchup of the week comes in the Sunday night game. The Packers and Texans face off, with 2-3 Green Bay desperate for the win. Houston is red-hot and off to a 5-0 start. That game is set for 6:20 p.m. on NBC.

Thursday night on NFL Network pits the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Tennessee Titans at 6:20 p.m., while the Monday night game features the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers at 6:30 p.m.
