Week 12 NFL Picks: The Turkey Day Tussles

[lead align=”default”]The Week 12 NFL picks are led off by three surprisingly good Thanksgiving games.[/lead]

When was the last time we had a slate of critical games up and down the slate on Turkey Day? Last year, it was three kind of meh contests, only one of which was a close game. This year, lots of evenness, and they can all go either way.

Thanksgiving starts with Minnesota visiting Detroit in a rematch of not long ago, in which the Lions got their tiebreaker over the Vikings. This is followed by a huge NFC East game between the Redskins and Cowboys. Finally, these are the two worst teams playing, but the Steelers and Colts each have their direction of their season in play. Unfortunately for Indy, Andrew Luck is unlikely to play.

But what about the games over the weekend? Well, the rest of the slate suffers, that’s for sure, but wait until Sunday night for a good one against Kansas City and Denver. Green Bay and Philadelphia might have been a better game if the Packers weren’t so defenseless.

We had a great week last week picking against the spread. If only we knew the odds of us having another one in succession. Let’s set the spread at The Bracket Yard +3, and we’ll just hope we’re wrong.
