Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you have safe travel throughout this entire weekend.

Week 12 of the NFL season is here. All 16 teams are playing this week. Let's take a look at the schedule. All times listed are Eastern Standard Time (EST).

Last week: 9-5.

Overall record: 97-67

Thursday, November 23rd

Green Bay Packers (4-6) at Detroit Lions (8-2) - 12:30 PM.

We are living in the Twilight Zone. The Detroit Lions are off to their best start since 1962. Pick: Lions.

Washington Commanders (4-7) at Dallas Cowboys (7-3) - 4:30 PM.

The only thing that the Commanders are commanding are losses. Pick: Cowboys.

San Francisco 49ers (7-3) at Seattle Seahawks (6-4) - 8:20 PM.

Seahawks QB Geno Smith is listed as questionable. The status of Seahawks RB Kenneth Walker III is up in the air for this game. Pick: 49ers.

Friday, November 24th

Miami Dolphins (7-3) at New York Jets (4-6) - 3 PM.

The good news is that this game between Miami and New York is the first-ever NFL game on Black Friday. The bad news is that Tim Boyle is starting at quarterback for the Jets. In Boyle's five-year career in the NFL, Boyle has never won a game. Pick: Dolphins.

Sunday, November 26th

New Orleans Saints (5-5) at Atlanta Falcons (4-6) - 1 PM.

For New Orleans, WR Michael Thomas has been placed on injured reserve, and QB Derek Carr is still in concussion protocol. Fortunately, they are playing the Falcons this week. Pick: Saints.

Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4) at Cincinnati Bengals (5-5) - 1 PM.

Steelers RB Najee Harris was frustrated about their offense during the week. Fortunately, Steelers RB Jaylen Warren is not frustrated. Pick: Steelers.

Carolina Panthers (1-9) at Tennessee Titans (3-7) - 1 PM.

The Dr. Pepper Curse from Fansville is doing a number on Panthers QB Bryce Young and it's about to get worse. Hold the mayo! Pick: Titans.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-6) at Indianapolis Colts (5-5) - 1 PM.

When Colts owner Jim Irsay is saying nonsense during the week, Indianapolis seems to play well the next Sunday. Pick: Colts.

New England Patriots (2-8) at New York Giants (3-8) - 1 PM.

We're about to see a miracle happen on Sunday. The Giants are going to win two in a row this season. Pick: Giants.

Jacksonville Jaguars (7-3) at Houston Texans (6-4) - 1 PM.

The Texans beat the brakes off of Jacksonville when they played two months ago. Pick: Texans.

Cleveland Browns (7-3) at Denver Broncos (5-5) - 4:05 PM.

Denver is in the midst of one of the biggest turnarounds this season after winning four games in a row. Pick: Broncos.

Los Angeles Rams (4-6) at Arizona Cardinals (2-9) - 4:05 PM.

With all of this extra time during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, some people like to relax and play video games. Pick: Rams.

Kansas City Chiefs (7-3) at Las Vegas Raiders (5-6) - 4:25 PM.

Chiefs wide receivers will not drop as many balls as they did on Monday. Pick: Chiefs.

Buffalo Bills (6-5) at Philadelphia Eagles (9-1) - 4:25 PM.

Philadelphia is undefeated at home. Pick: Eagles.

Baltimore Ravens (8-3) at Los Angeles Chargers (4-6) - 8:20 PM.

Chargers DE Joey Bosa was placed on injured reserve this week. Pick: Ravens.

Monday, November 27th

Chicago Bears (3-8) at Minnesota Vikings (6-5) - 8:15 PM.

The Chicago Bears had the biggest choke in 91 years in the NFL last week. Pick: Vikings.
