    What do you guys think the scores of all three games will be?

    Detroit 34-28 over GB. Pack lose for the first time.

    Dallas 26-23 OT over Miami. A top TE and having to keep an extra man in to protect Moore may be too much.

    Baltimore 21-13 over SF. Baltimore at home SF traveling across country battle of the Harbaugh brothers, John takes this one.

    Yes I took all home teams.

    As much as I want to see Detroit win on Thanksgiving Day, I don't think you can't go against history. The Lions are 30-36 on Thanksgiving Day dating back to the end of World War II with their last Thanksgiving Day victory coming coincidentally against the Green Bay Packers in 2003. Should be entertaining however, I just think Green Bay is too much for the Lions. Final score, 38-34 Green Bay.

    The Dallas Cowboys have been playing on Thanksgiving Day since 1966 and over that 35 year span has posted an impressive 27-8 record however...the one team that has traditionally given the Cowboys problems on Thanksgiving Day is...The Miami Dolphins. Dallas is 1-3 against the Dolphins, where the Dolphins on the other hand are 5-1 on Thanksgiving Day, beating the Cowboys, thrice, the Lions once and the Cardinals back in 1977.

    Looking for an upset to make some Christmas cash on? Miami in a close one 31-27

    Since the last game isn't really a Thanksgiving Day tradition, rather a third game to satisfy the bloodlust of teams with playoff contention rather than the typical doom and gloom of what's become the norm of Detroit losing pits the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens...Harbaugh vs Harbaugh. San Francisco under first year coach Jim Harbaugh has seen a reimergence almost resembling the glory days of the 80's posting an impressive 9-1 record. Alex Smith is having a Pro Bowl year and is blossoming into the quarterback everyone thought he would be. The Ravens on the other hand with it's hard hittng defense is going to give San Francisco a test they've not faced yet. Key to this game is going to time of possession. As much as I like what Jim Harbaugh has done in San Francisco, I believe Baltimore's defense is going to smother them like purple haze. Baltimore wins 20-13.

    I like our chances. To our team this has to be the Superbowl, or at least a chance to show all of America that we can beat good teams, I think this game is a lot bigger to us than it is to Dallas. Sparano wins this game and he has a shot at saving his job.....maybe unfortunately.....our defense is playing incredibly well.....I think we win 28-17

    I think Detroit wins too, Green Bays defense is terrible and Detroit can score. Green Bay's been giving up a ton of points to teams that don't have Calvin Johnson....Detroit sacks Rodgers on some key 3rd downs....upset pick....35-31...

    Baltimore wins because they play up to level of competition, they will lose to just about every bad team on their schedule and wind up 11-5 or 10-6 but they are a serious contender. Oh yeah and Ray Rice is a beast, so is Gore but I like Rice having a big game catching the ball....Baltimore 21-17.

    If Detroit come out and seizes the excitment, they can indeed win. They do have the tools and the talent to do it. Both Green Bay and Detroit can score at will, but both of their defenses are giving up points (even more points than our Dolphins are giving up). I just have the feeling that the big stage is going to be a little too much on Detroit where Green Bay is quite used to being in the spotlight.

    My heart wants Detroit to win...I just personally don't think it will.

    Hope the Lions can make me eat crow. :up:

    My thoughts...

    Miami beats Dallas in OT...

    Could that physical Detroit in D put a downer on Rodgers? Yes if Rodgers cannot overcome it...

    Ravens will win if they Ray Lewis back on the field...

    Not to be terribly picky, but.... There was no Super Bowl at that time.. it was the 1962 NFL Championship game at that time, and the winner became the World Champion. Green Bay was 10-0 at Thanksgiving, and the Lions sacked Bart Starr a number of times.

    By the way, maybe it's just me, but I don't want any game coming down to Shayne Graham.
