Three pretty good Thursday games to get the week started.

Well the bad picks of week 10 are behind me and week 11 was a nice comeback week with a record of 10-4. I missed the Jags and Browns, Jets and Denver, Buffalo and Miami, and Philly and the G-Men. For the season I am now 102-58. Here is the Thanksgiving edition of my picks. So much to be thankful for, and lets hope my picks this weel are included in what I am thankful for as well.

Green Bay 28 Detroit 24

Lions sure talk a good game, Packers play a good game. This should be a close game, but I don't see the Packers losing yet.

Dallas 24 Miami 14

A few weeks ago this game looked like a dud. Both teams are starting to play better. I like the Cowboys over the Dolphins in this matchup.

Baltimore 20 San Francisco 17

So nice of the NFL to let the Harbaugh brothers spend Thanksgiving together. This should be a real good game and I like John and the Ravens to beat Jim and the 49ers.

St.Louis 17 Arizona 13

This is the bad game of the week. Rams are at home so I'll take them over the Cardinals.

NY Jets 24 Buffalo 13

Jets are in desparate need of a win and the Bills have gone back to playing like the Bills. I like the Jets at home.

Carolina 31 Indianapolis 17

Cam Newton and the Panthers should keep the Colts from winning.

Cincinnati 27 Cleveland 10

I like the Bengals to take down the Browns in the battle of Ohio.

Houston 24 Jacksonville 16

This game is all about the running backs. I like Foster better than Jones-Drew so I'll take the Texans over the Jaguars.

Atlanta 27 Minnesota 13

Sounds like Adrian Peterson is out. Love the Falcons at home in this matchup with the Vikings.

Tennessee 21 Tampa Bay 17

Another coin flip game. I'll take the Titans at home to bring down the Buccaneers.

Oakland 21 Chicago 13

My pick would have probably been the same even with Cutler playing. I just don't like teams traveling West and the Raiders are playing well. I'll take them over the Bears at home.

San Diego 24 Denver 14

I still don't know how the Broncos keep winning. Dear San Diego, Make Tebow throw. Don't let him run. I see the magic ending and like the Chargers in this one.

New England 28 Philadelphia 14

Patriots are rolling and they are better than the Eagles so I'm gonna go with the Pats in this one.

Seattle 21 Washington 6

Redskins are really struggling and the Seahawks are still a pretty good team at home. I'll take Seattle at home.

Pittsburgh 24 Kansas City 14

Steelers are coming off a bye and the Chiefs are in a tail spin. I like the Steelers to take this one.

New Orleans 28 Ny Giants 17

Brees at home is always good unless your the opponent. I like the Saints over the Giants.
