Anyone Up For a Little Football Today?
Americans will once again enjoy their Thanksgiving feast with a heaping side of football. As usual, Detroit and Dallas will each host a game on Turkey Day. The Lions take on the Packers at 11:30 on CBS and the Cowboys welcome the Raiders at 3:30 on FOX. Then later on at 7:30 the Ravens will host the Steelers on the NFL Network.
