The NFL is making its Black Friday debut this year when the Miami Dolphins (7-3) will hit the road to square off against the New York Jets (4-6). The Dolphins are in first place in the AFC East division, but the Bills are very far off so they they need to win to keep pace. The Jets playoffs are holding on by a thread and a loss could put that final nail in those hopes. Kickoff for the game is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Dolphins vs. Jets, Week 12: Pick against the spread
The Dolphins have been the class of the division thus far and are a virtual lock for the playoffs. However, if there is one knock on this team, it’s that when they’ve had to go up against a fellow heavyweight, they’ve come up a bit short. Their offense is explosive, but the finesse style of play can get slowed down at times, which could hurt them come playoff time. The Dolphins are coming off a 20-13 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 11. Wide Receiver Tyreek Hill caught ten passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in the game.
Rumors are swirling that Aaron Rodgers is looking to make a comeback, but with another loss or two, the season will be over. Head coach Robert Saleh benched starter Zach Wilson, so Tim Boyle will be under center this week. The Jets have one of the best defensive units in the league, so they just need a competent offense, and they’d be in the thick of the playoff race. The Jets are coming off of a 32-6 drubbing at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in Week 11.
