It's that time of year again. The time to watch the Lions and Cowboys on Thanksgiving no matter how awful they are. This year is no exception as the 4-6 Lions and 3-7 Cowboys start the Turkey Day festivities but the night game will be the true headliner between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers remain the only undefeated team in the NFL while the Ravens need this win to stay a factor in the AFC North. We will have a full preview of these games right before Thanksgiving Day so keep it locked here for the latest.

Let's look down the docket and see what else is cooking on this Thanksgiving week. The first heavyweight matchup on Sunday is between the leaders of the AFC South when the Tennessee Titans visit the Indianapolis Colts. Both are coming off epic victories in games they had no business winning. The Titans were down 21-10 in the third quarter quarter but they forced overtime where Derrick Henry pulled a Marshawn Lynch and went Beast Mode to plow his way into the endzone for the game winning score.

The Colts won an overtime thriller as well in a game they were down 28-14 at the half. Indy only gave up three to Aaron Rodgers and the mighty Packers offense in the second half to make it to OT. The Packers then fumbled on the opening possession to make way for the Colts to kick the winning field goal. Both wins kept both teams in the lead for the division at 7-3.

These two just played two weeks ago in Week 10 on Thursday Night Football and it wasn't even particularly close. Philip Rivers widely outshined Ryan Tannehill and the Colts beat the Titans 34-17. The Titans win by King Henry dominating on the ground to open up Tannehill to the play action quick passes. Henry kept up his end of the bargain in that game by rushing for more than 100 yards but he didn't get in the endzone. They relied on Tannehill too much to score. That has to change if they don't want be swept by the Colts and lose ground in the division race.

For the Colts, it's all about the veteran stability Rivers brings that they just didn't have last season after Andrew Luck retired and Jacoby Brissett took over. When Rivers was on the Chargers last season, they kept losing one score games and a lot of times that came over to too many turnovers especially by Rivers. The Chargers are still having that problem but Rivers has improved since moving to a new team for the first time in his career. He did throw a pick in the game against the Packers though and it led to a Green Bay touchdown. Limiting these turnovers along with this tremendous Colts passing defense will be the key again against these Titans.

If there were ever going to be fireworks on Thanksgiving, they'd make an appearance Sunday afternoon between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Watching Brady and Mahomes is always electric. The 2018 season belonged to Brady and the Patriots beating the Chiefs in a 37-31 in OT on their way to Super Bowl LIII. But of course the 2019 season was all about the Chiefs as they won Super Bowl LIV. They beat the Patriots 23-16 last December and they never met in the playoffs due to a surprise Patriots early exit by the hands of the emerging Titans. We don't expect that low of a score again amongst these incredible offenses.

The Chiefs avoided a sweep by the Raiders last week with a brilliant two-minute drill by Mahomes and company to beat Las Vegas on the last play of the game to a wide open Travis Kelce. The Buccaneers will have weapons of their own that Brady simply didn't have in New England last year. Kelce, Tyreek Hill, the Chiefs are hoping Sammy Watkins, Le'Veon Bell and Clyde Edwards-Helaire will all face off against Mike Evans, Antonio Brown, Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski, Cameron Brate, Ronald Jones II and Leonard Fournette. What a glorious offensive matchup to be thankful for. Good luck to those defenses.
