2012 NFL schedule: Cowboys host the Redskins in another Thanksgiving Classic

The Redskins come to Dallas for another Turkey Day battle, the first in the young career of RGIII

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Tradition continues as the Cowboys host another Thanksgiving Day game. RG III makes his Turkey Day debut as the Washington Redskins come to Dallas for their first Thanskgiving Classic since 2002.

Dallas got back to .500 on Sunday with a nail-biting 23-20 overtime win over the Browns, and the 5-5 Cowboys are just one game behind the Giants in the NFC East. The Redskins, now 4-6, are coming off a pounding of the Philadelphia Eagles, and could tie Dallas for second with a win.

Tony Romo is 5-1 in his career on Thanksgiving, while the Cowboys have won six of their last seven.

The Redskins last visit to Dallas for the Classic was in 2002, and the Cowboys won 27-20.

Here's the full schedule for Week 12:

Thursday, Nov. 22

Sunday, Nov. 24
Monday, Nov. 26
