The Best Football Game You Can Watch Over the Holiday Is Not in the NFL
This year the NFL has three games for us on Thanksgiving. The early game is at 12:30 between the Vikings and the Lions.
The NFC North is wide open and these two teams are tied for first. It's a big game. The middle game, probably the best of the day is the Cowboys and Redskins.
If the Redskins win it shakes things up in the NFC East, if the Cowboys win they really separate themselves. In that case, it would be hard to catch them. The late game stinks. It's the Steelers and Colts.
Both have had disappointing seasons and neither is likely to make the playoffs unless they go on a run. It's college football though this Saturday that boasts the best game of the holiday weekend. #2 Ohio State and #3 Michigan mix it up in one of the best rivalries in sports.
This is like an NFC or AFC Championship game. The loser will probably not make it into the new playoff format. The winner probably stands the best chance at meeting Alabama in an eventual championship game for all the marbles. I will be glued to the set on Saturday.
