    Thu Nov 22
    12:30 pm Chicago Bears Detroit Lions - Even with Trubisky out, I'll go with the Bears. Kerryon Johnson is hurt for the Lions, and they need him against this defense
    4:30 pm Washington Redskins Dallas Cowboys - Too many important injuries for the Skins. Alex Smith got hurt after the offensive line lost multiple starters
    8:20 pm Atlanta Falcons New Orleans Saints - This is just the sort of divisional game that could be a trap for the Saints....but no, they'll beat Atlanta

    Sun Nov 25
    1:00 pm Cleveland Browns Cincinnati Bengals - AJ Green is supposed to play
    1:00 pm Jacksonville Jaguars Buffalo Bills - Jacksonville has the defense to take this game
    1:00 pm Miami Dolphins Indianapolis Colts - Colts are surging
    1:00 pm New England Patriots New York Jets - A get right game for the Pats
    1:00 pm New York Giants Philadelphia Eagles - I just can't see the Giants winning 3 in a row
    1:00 pm Oakland Raiders Baltimore Ravens - Can the Ravens continue to win with Jackson playing running back/quarterback? Against the Raiders, yes
    1:00 pm San Francisco 49ers Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Two bad teams. I feel the Niners are in less disarray.
    1:00 pm Seattle Seahawks Carolina Panthers - Tough one to call. I'll give the Panthers the home edge
    4:05 pm Arizona Cardinals Los Angeles Chargers - Chargers are a much better team than the Cards
    4:25 pm Pittsburgh Steelers Denver Broncos - The Steelers are too much for the Broncos
    8:20 pm Green Bay Packers Minnesota Vikings - Packers can't seem to quite get going. Vikings win at home

    Mon Nov 26
    8:15 pm Tennessee Titans Houston Texans - Similar to the Saints/Falcons game, this could be a bit of a trap for the Texans. Unlike that other game, I think the Titans get the upset divisional win. These teams are closer (when the Titans aren't playing like total garbage) than the Saints and Falcons.

    I think Dallas would rather have faced Alex Smith. Hated to see him go down like that but Colt McKoy poses more problems for them. I'll go with the Skins and the Packers I think Rodgers is due for one of those games.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
    I like most of your picks.

    Turkey Day games
    Bears at Kitties --- Hope Kitties can pull out a win, but really doubt it. Bears on the road.
    Skins at Cowpies --- Alex Smith out, but Dallas hasn't exactly been lighting up the boards either. Cowpies with home field advantage.
    Failcons at Saints --- Failcons will get run over by a runaway Saints train.

    Sunday games
    Browns at Bengals --- Bengals at home.
    Jags at Bills --- Hard to believe both teams were in playoffs last year. Jags on the road.
    Fish at Colts --- Colts playing very well now.
    Pats at Jets --- Can't picture the Jets winning this game.
    Jints at Iggles --- Eagles aren't out of the running for their division yet. Skins are in trouble and Cowpies aren't that great either. Jints at a game behind aren't out of it either , but more likely to play a spoiler role. Iggles at home.
    Raiders at Ravens --- Ravens better turn it up a notch if they want to stay in the wildcard conversation. Ravens at home.
    Whiners at Succaneers --- Guess I'll go with the Succs on this one.
    Seachix at Panthers --- Good matchup. Panthers at home.
    Cards at Chargers --- Chargers should win easily.
    Steelers at Broncos --- Steelers better on both sides of the ball.
    Pukers at Vikings --- Vikes at home.

    Monday night game
    Titans at Texassans --- I'll go with the Texassans at home.

    The Lions lost last year on Thanksgiving. Before that they won 4 years in a row, but before THAT they lost 9 years in a row. The Cowboys have lost 3 of their last 4 on Thanksgiving. :)

    No Trubisky…...if Stafford can keep from throwing game away....decent shot. Know all the stats, seen Detroit pull enough upsets on this day...….Dallas has winning record on Thanksgiving day....if they're underdogs the better the payout

    No predictions, just a hope - Redskins charter plane exploded in mid-air during return flight from Dallas.

    So the Skins didn't deserve to win, but at the end of the game the Cowboys linebacker drove the crown of his helmet straight into Jordan Reed's face mask as he was going for a catch. If you aren't going to call that, then get rid of the penalty altogether. That's the kind of play where guys break their neck.

    Unfortunately, Stafford couldn't keep from throwing the game away. No upsets today...
