Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Lets take a look at the games that are up today.
New England @ Detroit
Detroit’s 2 wins have both come at home this year, but dont bet on that being the case against the Patriots. New England looks to be past their losing to crappy home teams phase. NE 32 – DET 17
Play – Tom Brady, Danny Woodhead, Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis, NE Def, Calvin Johnson, Brandon Pettigrew
Maybe – Brandon Tate, Wes Welker, Aaron Hernandez, Gronkowski, Shaun Hill, Nate Burelson
Nope- Jahvid Best, Maurice Morris, DET Def
New Orleans @ Dallas
Battle of the 2010 underachievers. New Orleans is confident that Reggie Bush will finally take the field, Cowboys learned that Tony Romo is expected to miss at least 3 more weeks. Not just because I am a Cowboys fan, but because they are going to be playing in front of an electric thanksgiving day crowd and have been on a relative hot streak.. DAL 38 – NO 34
Play – Drew Brees, Marques Colston, Jason Witten, Dez Bryant, Miles Austin
Maybe – Jeremy Shockey, Chris Ivory, Reggie Bush, Lance Moore, Robert Meachem, Jon Kitna, Marion Barber
Nope – Both DEFs
Cincinnati @ New York Jets
Thanksgiving gets a new night game at the Bengals take their sorry asses to the Jets. Jets have the record at home to be heavy favorites in this one, but I think Cincy FINALLY cleans up their act a bit, shocking a surprisingly anemic Jets offense. CIN 24 – NYJ 17
Play – Santonio Holmes, LaDainian Tomlinson, Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco, CIN Def, Carson Palmer
Maybe – Braylon Edwards, Mark Sanchez, Dustin Keller, NYJ Def, Cedric Benson, Jordan Shipley
Nope – Jericho Cotchery, Shonne Greene, Jermaine Gresham
Thats all. I’ll be back Saturday to field questions about the remaining week 12 games.
