NFL week 12 open thread: Thanksgiving leftovers

The Thanksgiving Day three-game schedule featured three of the four top-tier teams, and they all won — the Pack dropped the Lions, the Cowboys ripped the awful Jets and the Colts whipped the Falcons. The only one of the top four playing today are the Patriots, who host the struggling Eagles (5-5). Odds are the Pats stay perfect. Other games of interest include Jax hosting the resurgent Bills, the 7-3 Giants (two of those losses to 10-1 Dallas and the other to the 10-1 Packers, so they might be quite a bit better than even that 7-3 record suggests) hosting Minnesota, the Chargers hosting the Ravens (both teams need a win to stay alive in the playoff hunt), and Monday night’s game sets up the Steelers to thrash the Dolphins. Then again, the Steelers did lose to the Jets a week ago, so anything is possible in that one.
Just kidding. Steelers by two touchdowns, minimum.
