The Thanksgiving Day Extravaganza is brought to you by the Angry Elf and Dark Helmet. Actually, it is not that at all. I was just trying to grab your attention with the headline. Hopefully, it worked. I am pretty sure it did not. At least they both went 2-1 with their picks last week.
Dark Helmet sent me a picture of his family for Thanksgiving. Angry Elf also sent me a picture of his cousins. Not really sure what is going on over at his cousin’s house…Happy Turkey Day!!

Cowboys -3… Romo has struggled mightily this year but I see Bryant Austin and Witten causing all kinds of match-up problems for Washington. Cowboys have killed my record this year but I can’t be confident in picking Griffin with no weapons.
Cowboys under 48… The Redskins will help with having now quick strike offense and the cowboys defense has quietly got their crap together. Also look for Dallas to establish the run threw-out with Jones.
Jets +7… Its a rivalry game and nationally televised so expect to get the best from the Jets in this one. I feel losing Gronk will slow down the Pats offense enough to allow the over-matched Jets to cover.
FIRST OFF I WILL NOT TOUCH THE NFC EAST GAMES TIL AT LEAST DECEMBER AS I PROMISED 2 WEEKS AGO! I TRUST NONE OF THEM AT ALL!! Now onto the picks….
Texans (-3)... The Texans defense abysmal showing last week against the Jags..They gave up close to 40 points to a team with 1 win, that’s a little bit scary. But this match-up against the Lions has potential to be a high scoring affair pitting possibly the top 2 WR’s in the game today & that’s Andre Johnson & Megatron. I don’t see much defense , but I see the Texans picking up this win. Texans (over 49)
Patriots (-7)… I’m a Jet fan for those who don’t know, but a realist i am & i know how my team fools me from time to time & are NOT consistent. So I am expecting a letdown this week & the Pats will do what they do best & that s turn small dump passes into big gains,run ridiculous draws in a no-huddle offense & force turnovers on defense. I know i gave you all a lot to read….like I care? Hope you enjoyed it! Everybody have a great Thanksgiving…Yea, Gobble Gobble & all that too…
