Thanksgiving Day kicks off a triple-header with the Detroit Lions hosting the Houston Texans. Are they primed to upset the AFC powerhouse or will they come up short once again? Let's take a closer look at why I think the Texans will continue to roll.
If you like storylines, this is a game for you. Does Eli Manning have a "tired" arm? How big is the "revenge" factor? Can the Giants rebound off the bye? Will the Packers overcome their injuries? Let's dig in.
Can anyone stop the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? They pulled off the unlikely comeback in Week 11 vs the Panthers, but they face a much stiffer test when the NFC leading Atlanta Falcons come to town. Let's take a closer look at why I think the Bucs win streak comes to an end this Sunday.
MarketsThere's not a lot to report on this point spread. Last week Vegas had the Falcons favored by one point, but after the weekend it's re-opened as "pick em" (odds from SBRforum). In this specific match-up a fair argument can be made for either team so I understand throwing the game up as a pick em, but I see the advantages in favor of the Falcons that put them over the top. Power Rankings?These two teams are getting the most attention in the polls so far this week and there's also been a lot of debate about where they should be on the power rankings. Football Outsiders have them side by side each other at 12th and 13th respectively. Meanwhile, the national media ESPN boys have the Falcons 2nd and the Bucs 10th.
On Sunday, the Miami Dolphins are hoping to stop the slide and come away with a much needed win. The only problem? They must do it against one of the best defenses in the NFL. Let's break down this matchup and see where the value lies.
American Thanksgiving is right around the corner and part of that tradition is watching the Dallas Cowboys host a prime-time game. Do they have what it takes to come out on top or will RG3 come in and spoil the celebration? I like "America's Team" in this match-up, so let's take a closer look at the X's and O's.
