MMQB Staff Thanksgiving NFL Picks

Who's getting a W on Thanksgiving? The MMQB staff makes its picks.

It's Week 13! We have three games to entertain us on Thanksgiving Day, to go along with the turkey and stuffing. You can check back on Friday for our full picks, but we'll share who our staff likes in the three Turkey Day games now.

The Lions host the Bears, the Cowboys host the Bills and the Falcons host the Saints in the nightcap. Our group does envision an upset in one game, though there's a lot of chalk beyond that.

Let's make some picks.

Here's who is picking games straight up for the MMQB this year:

Andrew Brandt, Business of Football Columnist
Mitch Goldich, Producer/Writer
Bette Marston, Associate Editor
Kalyn Kahler, Staff Writer
Conor Orr, Staff Writer

Jenny Vrentas, Senior Writer
