Thanksgiving Day Picks
Vikings at Lions
Dan Schalk: Detroit Lions. Don’t feel super confident about this pick, but I’ll take the Lions at home on Turkey Day.
Brandon Reid: Detroit Lions. This is going to be a low scoring, tight affair. A first round playoff type of matchup. I know the Vikings defense looks stellar. And it is. But anything can happen on any given Sunday, ask the Chiefs. The Lions offense started the season off like no one in the league, then cooled down. I’m picking the home team in the Thanksgiving Day kickoff.
Orlando Torres: Minnesota Vikings. This should be a fun game prior to your Thanksgiving meal. This has TRAP game written all over the board for the Vikings, but looking at the past few weeks the Lions struggled for three and a half quarters against Cleveland, barely beat Chicago as well as a Aaron Rodgers-less Packers team, and the Vikings on the other hand keep on dominating.
Chargers at Cowboys
Dan Schalk: Dallas Cowboys. Dak needs to show me something when his best weapons aren’t always around him—and by best weapons I mean Tyron Smith and Sean Lee (who you would think wouldn’t have an impact on the offense, but he does). Zeke is not the reason the Cowboys have looked like dog poo on offense–it’s that offensive line and Dak looking like the Dak I scouted coming out of college (that’s not a compliment).
Brandon Reid: Los Angeles Chargers. If the Chargers can put up half the offense they scored against Buffalo last week, they win easily. No Ezekiel Elliott, and not much of a defense to speak of for Dallas. The Cowboys have scored 16 points…in their last 2 games! The Cowboys are home on Thanksgiving Day, and of course they could win this game, but I’m with Vegas. The Chargers have to be the favorites.
Orlando Torres: Los Angeles Chargers. It’s sad to see Dallas crumble in the second half of games without some of their key players. There’s a chance Tyron Smith is back this week, but I don’t think it’s enough to stop the Chargers.
Giants at Redskins
Dan Schalk: Washington Redskins. The one week I don’t pick the G-Men to win and they finally come through. I’m not falling for the trap they are so clearly setting for me.
Brandon Reid: Washington Redskins. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice if you can, Ben McAdoo. -B. Reid
Orlando Torres: Washington Redskins. The Giants showed some great adversity against a Chiefs team that completely crapped the bed, but a poor receiving core and lack of run game is going to hurt them at any chance of beating the Redskins on the road.
