Winner Winner Turkey Dinner – Levack’s Thanksgiving NFL Locks
The time-honored tradition of stuffing our faces and passing out while watching the NFL might be one of the few things we can still safely do in 2020. I was a season-ending ACL injury from Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow away from going 3 - 0 on Sunday. It sucks that the great story of Burrow's rookie season is coming to an early end but the Locks must continue. Currently holding a record of 13 - 20 on the season I need a little home cooking to keep pushing towards winning. Here are my picks for the three Thanksgiving Day games which you can hear all three of on 104.5 The Team.
Houston Texans -2.5 at Detroit Lions
I've been waiting for Texans' QB Deshaun Watson to start clicking, well he clicked last week against the Patriots. I expect that to continue for at least one more week when the Texans face the Lions in Detroit. The coaching battle of two former Bill Belichick defensive coordinators will go the way of Romeo Crennel and sadly get Matt Patricia one step closer to the door in Detroit.
Washington Football Team at Dallas Cowboys -2.5
Andy Dalton is finally back from both concussion and COVID-19 protocols and helped lead the Cowboys to a comeback 4th quarter win over the Minnesota Vikings. The Football Team was able to beat the Bengals after Joe Burrow hurt his leg and will most likely miss the rest of the season.
Cowboys - 2.5
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers - 3
This is a "Must win" game for the Baltimore Ravens. If the Steelers win this game there is absolutely no chance of the Ravens catching them. Not only are the Ravens losing sight of the AFC North title they're also on the outside looking in of the AFC playoff picture as a whole currently sitting in 8th place. I expect a big outing from the Ravens to end the Thanksgiving day games.
