Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I am going to be out for most of Thursday but for those who want to hang out here and watch football, here are the games to look forward to (or not look forward to, I suppose):
8-2 Minnesota Vikings at 6-4 Detroit Lions: 9:30 AM PT, FOX
4-6 Los Angeles Chargers at 5-5 Dallas Cowboys: 1:30 PM PT, CBS
2-8 New York Giants at 4-6 Washington: 5:30 PM PT, NBC
Due to Seattle’s loss on Monday, the whole script has changed for Vikings-Lions. Rooting for Minnesota is a must because Detroit currently has the tiebreaker (better record vs. NFC) on the Seahawks. Also pull for the Chargers, and just to rid one team out of the playoff contention altogether, support the Giants’ bid to knock off Washington and send them to 4-7.
