Today’s picks:

Redskins @ Cowboys: Cowboys. Redskins dealt a devastating loss and recovering on a short week may be too much to ask.

Falcons @ Saints: Saints. This may be your new “best team” in the league right now.

The rest coming later. Good luck everyone!
Good start for me. I’d better get the rest of my picks in before I forget!

Jaguars @ Bills: Bills. Hard to believe one of these teams broke a long playoff drought and the other reached the conference title game just last season.

Browns @ Bengals: Browns. I think they’re actually playing better ball right now than the Bengals.

Patriots @ Jets: Patriots. Still in the running for the #1 playoff seed and looking to rebound from a big loss, Patriots unload on the Jets.

Giants @ Eagles: Eagles. Neither team is completely out of the running in a crowded NFC EAST.

49ers @ Buccaneers: Bucs. They win it but nobody will notice because nobody will be watching this one.

Seahawks @ Panthers: Panthers. Major WC implications in this one.

Raiders @ Ravens: Ravens. Probably running away with it. Raiders seem all in on the future right now. Whenever that may be...

Cardinals @ Chargers: Chargers. They’ll need a rebound game to keep their strangle hold on the #5 seed, especially since they still have some tough ones remaining on the schedule.

Steelers @ Broncos: Broncos. Call it homer hope if you must. Truth is this Broncos team has played some very good teams close all season long. Combine with Ben R. Usually struggling to play in Denver and the Broncos have a fighting chance here. (Fun fact: the Broncos have faced 3 straight opponents who’re riding a 5 game win streak into the contest, the first stretch of this kind since the 1976 Bucs.)

Dolphins @ Colts: Colts. This one is huge for the AFC playoff picture. Colts are playing good ball and Dolphins somehow still afloat despite having a lot of key pieces in the trainer’s room.

Packers @ Vikings: Vikings. Another one with potential playoff implications. I love this time of year.

Titans @ Texans: Texans. The NFL couldn’t have drawn up this week much better. This one is a great wrap for a promising week. Titans win it and they’re in the running to win the South. Texans win it and they continue their incredible run after an 0-3 start.

Good luck everyone! I hope your Thanksgiving was as good as mine!

Good job, 3-0! Nicholas posted right before the game if Trubisky wasn't playing he'd go Lions, Bears are on a roll!

And one started a rebuild in the off-season and the other was hoping to make it back to the AFCCG. Wouldn’t be able to tell which is which though.

THEN, Around 3, Fell asleep! woke up after the game ended, found that my son, My old lady and mother in law had left for a movie. My parents were sitting in the living room, my dad asleep and y mom watching home improvement shows, my oldest son asleep too. not even watching the Cowboys. Too much wine and turkey I guess
Sounds like a successful Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone

Looks like we all might have had a perfect day on Thanksgiving as far as games go.

I think my hardest pick is going to be looking at the Bills to win over the Jags!

Good luck everyone and congrats for the wins on Turkey day!

How do you feel about Josh Allen’s viability long term? (Probably a better conversation for the Bills thread.)

God help us?

I don’t know if he can read coverages consistently and his accuracy is questionable. And I have no faith the current coach and GM combination knows how to build an offense like we have seen in Philly, LA, Chicago and KC.

I love Allen’s athletic ability. His toughness. His leadership. His arm strength. But if you can’t read the field and don’t have consistent accuracy none of those things matter.
