For once, the NFL's slate of Thanksgiving games is actually good this year. The feisty Lions are a 6.5 home dog to the undefeated Packers tomorrow afternoon, and the one-loss 49ers travel to the AFC-leading Ravens in the inaugural Harbaugh Bowl for the night cap. On Sunday, one once mighty, now struggling AFC East team will be essentially eliminated from playoff contention when the Bills visit the Jets, the Eagles try to redeem their dream season when Tom Brady and the Pats come to town, and the Bears debut a new quarterback in Oakland in a matchup of surprising playoff contenders (we've included the Pittsburgh-Kansas City Sunday nighter, but you may want to just skip that one—flex scheduling, here we come!). Finally, on Monday night, the Giants look to get back on track when they visit the Saints.

As always, Joe's picking against the spread, no cheap shit here.
