drew-brees-new-orleans-saints-host-los-angeles-rams-2016-3255451097eb7c37.jpgLast week was yet another compelling slate of games, and this week football fans have plenty to be thankful for. We have a three game Thanksgiving slate tomorrow, and then a normally scheduled slate of games over the weekend. Due to some scheduling conflicts, I’ll be making all of my picks for the games today which could come back to hurt me without a full week of injury reports to go off of. Regardless, hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving surrounded by their friends, loved ones and hopefully some entertaining games.

Last week: 10-4, Season: 98-62

Last week against the spread: 7-7, Season: 82-78

Game of the weak: Browns vs Bengals: Technically, the Browns have yet to be eliminated from playoff contention so they’re still playing some meaningful November football. The Bengals are coming off a road win in Denver, but their offensive line has been one of the shakier units in the league this season. Despite that, it has been a long year as the chatter among Bengal fans wanting Marvin Lewis out after this season continues to get louder. A loss here certainly would not help the cause. Browns 17 Bengals (-8.5) 26

Game of the week: Saints vs Rams: Just as the Rams started to become America’s darling for the 2017 season, they’re stuck facing two of the best teams the NFC has to offer in back-to-back weeks. The Rams had a tough go of it against the Vikings, and the injuries they left the game with won’t make things any easier. Meanwhile, the Saints showed last week why they could be one of the most complete teams in the league. While Drew Brees has been more of a game manager by his lofty standards this season, he was able to turn it on when needed to catapult a comeback win. Look for the Saints to establish the run early and often in this one with their dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Saints 27 Rams (-2.5) 20

Vikings 24 Lions (+3.5) 20

Chargers 26 Cowboys (+1.5) 23

Giants 21 Redskins (-7.5) 28

Bills 16 Chiefs (-10.5) 28

Bears 14 Eagles (-13.5) 28

Panthers 24 Jets (+4.5) 17

Buccaneers 21 Falcons (-10.5) 27

Dolphins 17 Patriots (-16.5) 35

Titans 23 Colts (+3.5) 20

Seahawks 28 49ers (+7.5) 21

Broncos 20 Raiders (-5.5) 24

Jaguars 23 Cardinals (+4.5) 14

Packers 14 Steelers (-14.5) 30

Texans 14 Ravens (-7.5) 23
