The Miami Dolphins coaching staff rearranged the Dolphins practice schedule this week to give the players off for Thanksgiving.  The Dolphins practiced on Tuesday, a day that they are usually off, so that they could spend Thanksgiving with their families.  Hopefully, the Dolphins coaches ‘family’ approach will pay off as they continue preparations for the Seahawks tomorrow. We have 3 games on Thanksgiving today and will do our best to give you some winners!  We went 3-1 this past weekend, bringing our record up to 24-18.  Now we have to build on that momentum!  Here are our picks for the Thanksgiving games: Houston Texans -3 over Detroit Lions The Texans got a scare from the Jaguars last week, but were still able to improve to 9-1 on the season.   The Lions, meanwhile, are treading water at 4-6 and don’t look like the playoff team we thought they would be before the season.  I think the scare from the Jags last week will serve as a wake up call for the Texans.  I think they’ll come out today, in front of a national audience and make a statement. I think the Texans win this game handily and improve to 10-1 and in control of the top spot in the AFC playoff picture.  Texans 30 Lions 21  (cont’d on page 2, click below) Pages: 1 2
