Bay Area NFL teams face tough tests in Week 6 of the 2012 schedule.
The San Francisco 49ers host a rematch of the NFC Championship game against the New York Giants on Sunday. The 49ers come in on a roll, having dominated their last two opponents. The Giants have been the kings of the comeback en route to their 3-2 record. The two teams face off at 1:25 PT on FOX.
The Raiders had two weeks to prepare for their Week 6 game, and they certainly needed it. Oakland takes on the undefeated Atlanta Falcons. Oakland has struggled to a 1-3 record and needs to win to keep pace in the AFC West, but it will be a tall task in the Georgia Dome. The Raiders and Falcons kick off at 10 a.m. on CBS.
The top-billed match-up 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.
