My head is spinning. I just can’t believe that Week 13 of this NFL season is already upon us. I found a cafe to work up some numbers ahead of the week and lingered as drunken revelers strolled down the street. The people-watching was absolutely fantastic.

My hope had been to sleep a little later given the food and football comas to come on Thanksgiving Day. Alas, those dreams were torn asunder all too early. With a kick to the ribs, my Thanksgiving Day started before the sun had come up. Before I knew it, some inane children’s programming was screaming at me.

So, I take pause to thank you for your support and passion and, of course, for your derision.


That was touching. It’s time to dole out some selections for a trio of Thanksgiving Day games. Week 13 gets underway with the Packers and Lions.

Game Straight Up Against The Spread
Green Bay at Detroit (-5.5) Detroit Green Bay
Oakland at Dallas (-9.5) Dallas Dallas
Pittsburgh at Baltimore (-3.5) Pittsburgh Pittsburgh
