PIGSKIN 2018: Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day

Week Eleven


Week Eleven Record:  4-7
Overall Record:  58-76-5
Schmear of the Week:  5-6
Bagels in the Basket:  -28

LIONS +3 (Bears)
Never bet against the Lions, at home, on Thanksgiving.  Right?  The Bears previously defeated the Lions two weeks ago with Mitch Trubisky playing.  Chicago will now lose without him.  Lions just barely defeated the Panthers last week, but it was a victory nonetheless.
Loss; 23-16 Bears

COWBOYS -7 (D.C. Hogs)
Jerry Jones is fixing to enjoy himself some Thanksgiving Day glory hole.  Alex Smith merely adds to the growing list of Washington's injuries.  Backup quarterback Colt McCoy has his supporters, but I'm not one of them.
WIN; 31-23 Cowboys

SAINTS -13 (Falcons)
Atlanta only lost by six points when these teams last met in Week Three.  A lot has changed since then.  The Falcons own a minus-13 point differential.  They have lost their last two in which they failed to score 20-points against the Browns and Cowboys, and are just 1-3 on the road.  New Orleans owns an NFL best +139 point differential.  Their defense has been good enough; one or two key stops should push the Saints over the spread.
WIN; 31-17 Saints
