NFL Turkey Day Picks
*Glass Shatters* BAH GAWD, IT’S NFL PICKS! NFL TURKEY DAY PICKS ARE HERE! So here’s the deal, I gave up on picking NFL games on Friday because it took too much time to do both college and NFL. with College Football season winding down, I thought what better way to announce a revival of NFL picks. Do I care I’ve been on hiatus for awhile? No, not really.
Washington (6-3-1) at Dallas (9-1) (-7) 3:30 pm FOX – This is the best game of the Thanksgiving Day slate, and it could be the biggest blowout of the day. I love Dallas in this spot. Washington is coming off a Sunday Night game to play a Thursday afternoon game on the road, and I can’t think they’ll be ready for the wear down style of Dallas. Ezekiel Elliott should have a massive game in this one against the still mediocre Redskins running attack. DAL 30-17
Minnesota (6-4) at Detroit (6-4) (-2.5) 11:30 am CBS – For the week, I leaned Minnesota, but after the Stefon Diggs news that he may be out with injury, I can’t ride with Vikings. Bradford can only throw to Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph so many times. Lions offense is sputtering a little bit, but their defense has gotten better amid bad competition. Theo Riddick is the player of the watch as Vikings defense versus run keeps getting worse. Lions pull another one from their asses. DET 21-20
Pittsburgh (5-5) (-9) at Indianapolis (5-5) 7:30 pm NBC – It’s more than likely Scott Tolzien gets the ball for Indy on Sunday night versus Pittsburgh.Andrew Luck has a concussion, and the only player to play on Thursday after a Sunday head knock is Davante Adams. Steelers have been beasts in primetime of late blowing the door off teams. I do think Tolzien will do a few nice things, but it becomes all Pittsburgh in the second half. Le’Veon Bell with another huge performance. PITT 35-14
