Thanksgiving and Football. Whether you’re taking in your high school game, for me it’s Central vs. Northeast (Alma Mater). Maybe you’ll chose to take in the Detroit Lions around noon and the Dallas Cowboys a while later as the tryptophan kicks in. My favorite is the annual Turkey Bowl, every neighborhood has one, it’s the one day of the year where guys that have done nothing all year come out to try and recapture some gridiron glory and bragging rights.
Thursday November 27, 2008
Tennessee (10-1) at Detroit (0-11): The Lions are due for a win, and the Titans are ticked off. I’ve seen some pretty bad Lions teams win big on Thanksgiving. But I don’t think Barry Sanders will be in uniform for this one.
The Pick: Titans 27 – Lions 20
Seattle (2-9) at Dallas (7-4): Just like that T.O. is a threat again and he’s letting the world know it. What’s the best way to cook a Seahawk?
The Pick: ‘Boys 35 - Seahawks 13
Arizona (7-4) at Philadelphia (5-5-1): If the Birds can pull this one out they will remain in the playoff hunt. If not, it marks the end of a great run for Donovan McNabb in Negadelphia.
The Pick: Eagles 30 – Cardinals 24
Enjoy your Holiday!
