Happy Thanksgiving Broncos Country!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving with their friends and family. Eat plenty of food, and sit back and watch some football.

Speaking of football, here are the three football games that will be played today.

Philadelphia Eagles(4-6) vs. Detriot Lions(3-7)

The Lions and Eagles start off our day of football. The Lions have won two straight games and are looking to salvage what is left of their lost season. Meanwhile, the Eagles are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past weekend.

This is a must win for the Eagles

Carolina Panthers(10-0) vs. Dallas Cowboys(3-7)

The undefeated Carolina Panthers will travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys in the second game of Thanksgiving. Despite being undefeated, the 3 win Cowboys are favorited over the Panthers. With Tony Romo back, this game should be a good one.

My money is on Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.

Chicago Bears(4-6) vs. Green Bay Packers(7-3)

The final game of Thanksgiving will happen at the historic Lambeau field. The Chicago Bears will travel to Green Bay to take on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers ended their two-game losing streak by defeating their division rival Minnesota Vikings last week. The Chicago Bears lost to Brock Osweiler and the Denver Broncos this past Sunday.

I think we'll see Rodgers shred the Bears defense.
