Thanksgiving Day Games
One of the many traditions most Americans celebrate on Thanksgiving is football. Families and friends arrange backyard games, and millions watch football on TV before and after their meals. There are three Thanksgiving Day games this year in the NFL. Detroit and Dallas play ever year, with the third game being rotated yearly.
The first two games will be broadcast on CBS and Fox, but the night game will be aired on NFL Network. That’s a bummer because the Arizona vs. Philly game is the most intriguing, yet not many people have access to the NFL Network.
I think Detroit is going to come out and play strong. They are far inferior to the Titans team, but on Thanksgiving in Detroit, anything can happen. Detroit has one of the best young wide receivers in Calvin Johnson. It will be fun to see how he matches up with a tough Titans secondary.
Since Tony Romo’s return to the Dallas Cowboys, they have won two NFC games in a row over Washington and San Francisco. Seattle must bring their “A” game if they want to compete with the Cowboys. They need to pick whether to try to stop the run or stop the pass. Either way, the Seahawks must fire on all cylinders or Dallas will beat them with their many weapons.
My score predictions for the games:
Tennessee 28 Detroit 7
Seattle 10 Dallas 31
Arizona 35 Philadelphia 31
