One note before the predictions: Hats off to the NFL schedule makers for putting together an appetizing Thanksgiving lineup. Three big division rivalries. Delicious.

Let’s get started…

Bears @ Lions: The Bears need to win and keep pace, but the Lions at home on Thanksgiving Day get a win. Detroit 30, Chicago 20

Seahawks @ 49ers: Critically important game for both teams. The Seahawks need a win to maintain control in the West. The 49ers need a win to stay in a strong playoff position. San Francisco 16, Seattle 13

Redskins @ Colts: Poor, poor Washington. Indianapolis 34, Washington 14

Titans @ Texans: Houston gets a win to keep their slim hopes alive. Houston 24, Tennessee 20

Browns @ Bills: Buffalo is looking right at a first-round bye. Who would have thought? Buffalo 27, Cleveland 21

Chargers @ Ravens: Baltimore is giving chase to Cincy, but stumbles here. San Diego 28, Baltimore 21

Giants @ Jaguars: It’s been a tough stretch for the Giants. Jacksonville is the right medicine. New York Giants 30, Jacksonville 21

Bengals @ Buccaneers: Big chance for the Bengals to position themselves for a division title. Cincinnati 29, Tampa Bay 25

Raiders @ Rams: The Rams are going to find themselves on the outside looking in. They’re going to lose some focus late in the season. Oakland 23, St. Louis 18

Saints @ Steelers: The Saints are the better team and need this game. New Orleans 38, Pittsburgh 20

Panthers @ Vikings: Carolina is taking a firm hold on their division with the season winding down. Carolina 23, Minnesota 9

Cardinals @ Falcons: Weird things start to happen late in an NFL season. This is one of them. Atlanta 36, Arizona 30

Patriots @ Packers: Tough game to call here. The Packers are rolling and the Patriots need to start winning some games to lock up a wild card spot. I’ll take Tom Brady in this one. New England 35, Green Bay 33

Broncos @ Chiefs: Andy Reid and the Chiefs are falling apart. Denver 31, Kansas City 20

Dolphins @ Jets: Finally, some good news for the Jets. New York Jets 23, Miami 14

Last, but not least…

Eagles @ Cowboys: If you had your turkey early, this will be dessert for you. For the Eagles, it will be a feast. Philadelphia 33, Dallas 20
