It’s a Thanksgiving tradition dating back to KSK’s first year of existence in 2006: posting the Plano East-John Tyler game, still the best ending to any game ever. I still don’t know how there hasn’t been a 30 for 30 done on this game. It’s a huge oversight for the series and I demand it be addressed, just because I want to know if the redneck announcers still have their soiled britches from that day.
As for today, we’ll be around for all three games so feel free to drop in between bouts of gluttony. None of this year’s Thanksgiving games are great on paper, but, because two-thirds of the NFL is still realistically in the hunt for the playoffs, there are playoff implications for the six teams involved in today’s games. Since all six of them are within the range of one game under .500 to one game over .500 (UPDATE: whoops, forgot Oakland lost on Sunday), it’s the NFL’s year to be thankful for parity.
Your Thanksgiving slate, as rated by KSK’s not-at-all subjective, rigorously scientificated five-star system:
Green Bay at Detroit ***
Oakland at Dallas ***
Pittsburgh at Baltimore ***
