Thanksgiving Day (other games) open thread

Avoid your family and watch some football with us.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions’ Thanksgiving Day Classic is over, and now it’s time to eat with family, friends or loved ones. But the NFL is far from done with the Holiday. There are still two more games to be played Thursday, and if you’re as hungry for football as you are for mashed potatoes, stick with your Pride of Detroit family and chat with us throughout the night.

First up is an NFC East showdown between the No. 1 and No. 2 teams. The Dallas Cowboys are starting to surge and it’s coming at the perfect time. That’s because Washington just dropped a heartbreaking game and lost their starting quarterback Alex Smith to a gruesome injury last week. At the moment Washington (6-4) holds a one-game lead over Dallas (5-5).

Then to cap off the night, the NFC South will take the stage. The 4-6 Falcons are in danger of losing their season—if they haven’t already—and they’re faced with a steep task this Thanksgiving. They’re in New Orleans to face the 9-1 Saints, winners of nine-straight games. The Falcons have to be one of the more desperate teams in the NFL, but it might not matter against the offense they’re running in New Orleans.

So avoid your family, watch some football, and chat with your true loved ones: us.
