It is Thanksgiving time and you all know what that means. Time to watch gridiron battles, enjoy time with the family, and eat an absurd amount of food. But the key to that statement is that it is time to watch some football.
So the picks are coming out early this week to incorporate the three outstanding Thanksgiving Day Games. Also due to the Holiday festivities, this version of the NFL picks will be a bit shortened from the normal prediction posts.
The pick’em scoreboard currently reads:
TheSportsKraze: 90 CV3: 96

What a slate of games we have this week. There are a couple of key games to note in the lineup. One is the matchup in ATL between the 2 best teams in the NFC, the Falcons and Packers. Can Matt Ryan continue to protect his home turf better than any QB in the League? Then of course the Michael Vick train heading to the Windy City should be fun. Can the Bears figure out how to stop the most dangerous player in the League? Then finally the AFC Showdown between the perennial AFC powers (Colts and Chargers), should be a very fun game to watch. Will Manning be able to outdo Rivers?
Enjoy the holiday and of course the football.
Stay tuned for the next edition of TheSportsKraze.
