By Dawni - 8 years ago in NFL News

Happy Thanksgiving!

Week 12 Thursday Football Preview

There will be three NFL games on Thanksgiving Day, including NFC East and AFC North divisional matchups. Here is a quick look at the games.


Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions
12:30AM EST at Ford Field
Det -2.5 O/U 41.5

The Detroit Lions will host the Minnesota Vikings for the first of three Thanksgiving Day games. This will be the 111th meeting between the two teams with the Vikings leading the series 71-37-2. These teams played each other a month ago in week 9. The Lions won that game 22-16 in overtime. The winner of this matchup will claim first place in the NFC North.


Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys
4:30PM EST at AT&T Stadium
Dal -7 O/U 52

The Cowboys will host their much hated divisional rival Redskins in the afternoon game. The Cowboys lead the series 67-44-2. The Cowboys have the best record in the league and are enjoying a three game lead in the NFC East. A win for the Skins would give them second place in the division.


Pittsburgh Stealers at Indianapolis Colts
8:30PM EST at Lucas Oil Stadium
Pit -9 O/U 40

The Indianapolis Colts will host the Pittsburgh Steelers for the evening game. These teams have met each other 28 times including 5 postseason games. The Steelers have won 22 of those games. Andrew Luck will not be playing due to a concussion, so Scott Tolzien will start at quarterback. The Steelers are tied for first place with the Ravens in the AFC North. The Colts are one game out of first in the AFC South.
