Happy Thanksgiving!

Week 12 of the NFL season kicks off with a pair of matchups featuring the usual teams that play on Turkey Day.

The morning game sees Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans travel to Detroit to take on Matthew Stafford and the Lions. Houston is 3-7 and coming off a win over the New England Patriots last week. The Lions are tied with the San Francisco 49ers at 4-6 and looking to get back into the playoff hunt with a win.

In the afternoon game, first place in the loaded NFC East is on the line when the Washington Football Team plays the Dallas Cowboys. Both teams are sitting at 3-7 going into the matchup.

Former Niners’ QB Alex Smith will try and lead Washington to a second-straight win, while Cowboys’ quarterback Andy Dalton will make his second-consecutive start after returning from injury last week.

The day’s main event was supposed to feature a big NFC North showdown between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. The game is postponed until Sunday due to the league’s COVID-19 protocols.

Who do you got winning the two games on the schedule?
