I’ll make it short and sweet, but here are my Thanksgiving picks and short previews.
Green Bay vs. Detroit
Pick: Green Bay
Why: Why not? The Pack are undefeated, and while I don’t think they’ll end the season that way, they won’t lose to their division rivals on Thanksgiving. They’re just too good, even on the road.
Miami vs. Dallas
Why: Even if Miami’s starting to fall out of contention for the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes (meaning they’re actually winning), the Cowboys are picking up the slack and are starting to play with passion and power. They beat up on the Bills last week 44-7 and I think they’ll continue that pace at 4:15 ET today.
San Francisco vs. Baltimore
Why: Wow, this was a hard one to pick. First I thought the 49ers, but then I remembered how good the Ravens are. Even if the ‘Niners are 9-1, I still question their offensive line and how effective Alex Smith will be in this game.
Have a happy Thanksgiving!
