The Bears and Raiders don’t play until Sunday, but Thanksgiving is full of some good action.
The (10-0) Green Bay Packers take on the (7-3) Detroit Lions at 12:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
Then, the Miami Dolphins (3-7) take on the Dallas Cowboys (6-4) at Cowboys Stadium at 4:15 p.m. ET on CBS.
Late tonight, the San Fransisco 49ers (9-1) battle the Baltimore Ravens (7-3) at 8:20 p.m. ET on NFL Network.
The Packers and Lions game has a lot of meaning for the Bears. The Bears are currently three games back of the Packers, but the Lions are fighting with the Bears for a wild card spot.
So, for Bears fans they want the Packers to win despite how much hatred they have towards each other.
I’ll go with the Packers on the road, 30-23.
The Cowboys host the Dolphins, both teams have won three straight games.
The Cowboys are seven point favorites, but the Dolphins have been coming on as of late with Matt Moore leading the offense.
I’ll go with the Dolphins to upset the Cowboys, 27-21.
The night game is the 49ers and Ravens, its the battle of the Harbaugh brothers. Both teams have been pretty good this season.
The Ravens have suffered all of their three losses on the road, while the 49ers only loss came at home.
The Ravens will be tough to beat tonight, I’ll go with Jon Harbaugh and the Ravens 23-17.
Overall for Thanksgiving, I have two road winners, Green Bay and Miami and one home winner, Baltimore.
It should be a good day of football, maybe the best day of Thanksgiving football in a long time.
