Thanksgiving week 2017 has been great. We had good food and great football to enjoy along with it. We saw the Vikings continue to prove they’re the real deal, the Redskins were able to pullout a victory against the Giants, and most unfortunately, we saw the likely end to the Cowboys season.
But there is still more games to play this week.
Carolina Panthers vs New York Jets
The Panthers have been on fire. Sitting at 7-3 and on a three game win streak, the Panthers are trending upwards and a return to the Super Bowl might not be out the question. The New York Jets have been the Jets. They surprised everyone with their fast start, but have regressed back to their rightful place at the bottom of their division. These are two teams heading in totally different directions and the final score will prove that.
Chicago Bears vs Philadelphia Eagles
Mitch Trubisky has performed admirably during his rookie campaign but he’s about to face his toughest task yet. The Eagles are looking like Super Bowl locks with their terrifying offense, which has been bolstered with the addition of Jay Ajayi. Because of this offense, the Eagles will win the game, but Trubisky will have his statement game. He will keep it close for much of the game, but the Eagles just have too much, and it’ll show by the fourth quarter.
Green Bay Packers vs Pittsburgh Steelers
The season just keeps getting worse for the Packers. Their was a possibility that Aaron Rodgers might make a return this season, but at this point, there’s really no reason for him to. Their season is pretty much over and the Steelers are going to put the nail in it tonight. The Steelers offense has looked unstoppable and has propelled them to five straight wins, soon to be six. It’s going to get ugly too.
Game Of The Week: New Orleans Saints vs Los Angeles Rams
Boy, do we have a treat. Two of the NFL’s best teams and best quarterbacks are about to duke it out. The Saints are winners of eight straight. The Rams would have been winners of eight straight had they not lost last weekend to the Vikings. But the same thing that caused the loss to the Vikings will be their pitfall against the Saints: inexperience. Jared Goff is only in his second year and when he goes against other great QBs, it shows. This game will be a barn burner with touchdowns coming from both teams, I just know the last one will come from Drew Brees.
