While Notre Dame awaits its bowl invitation, playoff races continue to heat up in the NFL. With three games on Thanksgiving, it was a busy weekend in the league. Here's a look at how former Fighting Irish players performed in Week 12.

As is tradition in the Motor City, Detroit hosted the early afternoon game on Thanksgiving. The Lions however, dropped to 7-4, as Green Bay continued its hot streak with a 27-15 win. Ryan Grant ('05) had six carries for 20 yards and three catches for 20 yards in the victory.

Dallas knocked off Miami on a last-second field goal at Cowboys Stadium, 20-19. Anthony Fasano ('06) had two catches for 32 yards for the Dolphins.

In the battle of the Harbaugh brothers, Baltimore defeated San Francisco, 16-6. Tom Zbikowski ('07) had two solo tackles for the Ravens, including a sack of 49ers quarterback Alex Smith.

New England improved to 8-3 with a 38-20 victory at Philadelphia. Sergio Brown ('10) made three tackles for the Patriots, while Derek Landri ('06) had two for the Eagles. Trevor Laws ('07) had one pass deflection in the loss.

Seattle dropped to 4-7 with a 23-17 loss against Washington, but Golden Tate picked up his second touchdown of the season on a 15-yard pass from Tarvaris Jackson.

Justin Tuck ('05) and the New York Giants travel to New Orleans in tonight's Monday Night Football action.
