Thanks Giving has to be the 2nd most anticipated day of the NFL season after the Superbowl of course and this season the games are all massive with both Detroit and Dallas the traditional game day hosts in the Up and to cap it all there is the clash of the Harbaugh’s as the Ravens Take on the 49ers.
Detrout open the games and face a tough task against all conquering divisional rivals Green Bay who are hoping to move to 11-0 for the first time since the formation of the NFL as we know it today. Detroit won the corresponding fixture last season but its hard to see them stopping the Packers and we expect a Green Bay win.
Dallas suddenly find themselves top of an inconsistent NFC East, and on paper have a winnable game against the Dolphins, who are languishing as 3-7. Howevr the stats on the Miami don’t indicate the fact they are 3-0 of late and are suddenly looking a lot better. Ok they need a better offense , but their defense is solid and they could put up a good fight here. Still the Cowboys should win it given its at the “Staduim that Jerry Built”.
The final game sees the surprise team of the season San Fransisco take on the Ravens in what is sure to be a defensive slug fest. It also sees John & Jim Harbaugh face each other as opposing head coaches for the first time. Tough one to call this but with Baltimore being so good at home (14 wins in 15) we have to give them the edge.
Anyway Happy Thanks Giving to you all.
