Before we get started I'd like to wish you and yours a very happy thanksgiving. I've been in a worst slump than the Atlanta Falcons of late, turning in a subpar week for the third straight week.
Let's hope this week's picks are more the gravy and less the stuffing.
Last Week: 7-7 50% Upset Specials: 1-1 50%
Season: 104-56 65% Upset Specials: 13-9 59%
Eagles 20, Lions 13 - Philly had the stuffing kicked out of them last week by Tampa Bay, luckily for them they can be thankful to get right back on the horse and take on the suddenly hot Lions, whose coaches are thankful that Grandma Firestone-Ford hasn't come knocking on their doors yet.
Upset Special #3 - Vikings 28, Falcons 17 - Minnesota is thankful to have AP back, Atlanta is thankful they banked those early wins.
Jaguars 20, Chargers 13 - Jacksonville is thankful no one is noticing they're also in the AFC South division title race. San Diego thankful there's Obamacare (they've had lots of injuries...not a political statement...and get a life).
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
