3 NFL games, 1 Thanksgiving! (Breakdown)


The First game up on Thanksgiving day is the Houston Texans vs Detroit Lions. After the Texans coming off a win against the New England Patriots 27-20 they will look to continue their success in Detroit. QB Deshaun Watson is coming off a very impressive game against the Patriots with 344 passing yards 2 TD, 0 INT, and threw for 28/37.


The Detroit Lions will look to bounce back after getting destroyed 20-0 against the Carolina Panthers. QB Matthew Stafford is coming off a pretty bad game and is looking to bounce back from it. Stafford threw 18/33 with 178 passing yards and not one touchdown. The Texans vs Lions will take place Thursday at 12:30 PM on CBS. (My Pick: Houston Texans)


The second game of the day is the Washington Football Team vs Dallas Cowboys. These two teams are both desperate for wins as they both have a record of 3-7 but some how still in the race for first place in the division. The Washington Football Team is coming off a huge win against the Bengals of a score of 20-9 and look to keep that momentum going against Dallas. QB Alex Smith is coming off a decent start throwing 17/25 with 166 passing yards, 1 passing TD, and 1 INT.


The Dallas Cowboys also are coming off a huge win against the Minnesota Vikings of a score of 31-28. With QB Andy Dalton returning from his injury he wasted no time to get back into his groove. Throwing 22/32 with 203 passing yards, 3 TD, and 1 INT. Whoever wins this ball game can possibly be the team to take front seat of the division at least until Sunday when all the other NFL games take place. Washington Football Team vs Dallas Cowboys takes place on Thursday at 4:30 PM on FOX. (My Pick: Washington Football Team)


The last game of the day will be the Pittsburgh Steelers vs Baltimore Ravens. The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off yet another win adding to there amazing record making it 10-0. The Steelers beat the Jacksonville Jaguars of a score of 27-3. QB Ben Roethlisberger threw 32/46 with 267 passing yards, 2 TD, and 1 INT.


On the other hand the Baltimore Ravens are coming off a very frustrating loss to the Tennessee Titans of a score of 30-24 in OT. QB Lamar Jackson is coming off a very rough game throwing 17/29 with 186 passing yards, 1 TD, and 1 INT. The ravens are looking for anything to gain momentum after losing 3 of their last 4 games can they bounce back and enter a wild card spot? The Pittsburgh Steelers vs Baltimore Ravens will take place at 8:20 PM on NBC. (My Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers)
