Food, family, football – Thanksgiving is the holy trinity of secular American holidays. And no amount of tryptophan can stop a full day of NFL action.
First up, the Aaron-Rodgers-less Green Bay Packers head to the Motor City for an NFC North bout against the Detroit Lions. Next the Oakland Raiders storm into Dallas to lay siege to the Cowboy’s playoff run. And when night falls, two physical 5-6 teams – the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens – square off in a must-win situation for both.
And that’s just Thursday. Be sure to save some leftover turkey for rest of Week 13.
