The Detroit Lions are off, licking their wounds from a tough showing against the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving. And while those wounds still feel a bit fresh, that shouldn’t prevent us from enjoying some Sunday NFL football.
With three Thursday night games and the first ever Black Friday game, it’s a bit of a smaller slate of games than normal. And to be quite honest, it’s not the greatest set of games, either. The first six games in the early window don’t have a single true competitor among them. Easily the best matchup is Jaguars vs. Texans.
It gets better as the day goes on, however. Bills vs. Eagles is the marquee game in the late window with Browns vs. Broncos having some low-key appeal, as well.
