Let's hope the turkey is as juicy as some of these football matchups.
Thanksgiving week has arrived, which means the NFL schedule will feature a Thursday tripleheader and the first ever Black Friday football game.
It had become something of a holiday tradition to pay minimal attention to the annual Detroit Lions game on Thanksgiving, but that wasn't the case this year. The high-powered Lions, sitting atop the NFC North at 8-2, fell to 8-3 after being upset by the division rival Green Bay Packers, who improved to 5-6.

The league's other Thanksgiving mainstay, the Dallas Cowboys, had better luck against the Washington Commanders. History was made when Cowboys cornerback DaRon Bland reached the end zone for his fifth pick-six to break the single-season record in the 45-10 blowout victory.
The Thanksgiving slate was capped with the Seattle Seahawks (6-5) falling to the San Francisco 49ers (8-3) in an NFC West battle.
The Sunday slate offered 11 games, with the early portion of the schedule offering intriguing matchups like the Jacksonville Jaguars winning at the Houston Texans and the Pittsburgh Steelers triumphing at the Cincinnati Bengals, who were without quarterback Joe Burrow.
In the four-game late-window, the NFC-leading Philadelphia Eagles hosted the Buffalo Bills and the AFC-leading Kansas City Chiefs headed to Sin City and beat the Las Vegas Raiders.
