Happy Thanksgiving! It’s time to throw your face with turkey, mashed potatoes and fillings while watching football all day long.

If you’re struggling to decide if you’re going to keep the TV of this year and just argue with your family about politics good luck with it! ) we’ve covered the reasons you can use for to convince your thank-you diners to turn on the TV and watch soccer.

Bears at Lions 12:30 ET (CBS)

Bears crossing the playoff

The action starts with a NFC North Battle between first place Bears and fourth place slots. Bears has established their dominance in the division and although they lost to Packers in week 1

, they have won their two division matchups since. Bears have not coiled the Lions since 2012 but they have the potential to do this year and spoil Thanksgiving for fans in Detroit.

Mack attack

While Week 11 of the NFL ended with a stunning offensive view in Rams’ 54-51 win over the bosses, week 12 should kick with some impressive defensive games. Bears’ defense was led by Khalil Mack, who played a major role in Chicago, leading NFL with 27 takeaways, a +13 sales margin and 18 interceptions. Mack has one of these interceptions, which he returned for a touchdown, as well as 8.0 sacks and five forced fumbles. Can a defensive player win his team a game 2018? Mack will try to increase even further as Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is hesitant to play with shoulder injury. He will be Chase Daniel who has started two matches in his 10-year career, whose last was in 2014 with the managers.

If you did not like the Chiefs-Rams game due to lack of defense, this game should be more to your liking. Bears allow the third minimum yards and the fourth minimum score per game.

Washington at Cowboys 4:30 p.m. (FOX)

How good can Colt McCoy fill Alex Smith’s shoes?

Washington lost start quarterback Alex Smith to a devastating injury last Sunday and just four days later, Colt McCoy will step in to lead NFC East’s first team. Like Daniel, McCoy started playing a game 2014, and temporarily it was the game against the same team that he will meet today, the cowboys. Originally a third round select of Browns 2010, McCoy has started 25 matches with 21 of those who are for Cleveland 2010-2011. He has a 60.2 percent and has thrown 27 touchdowns to 23 interceptions. After Smith went down on Sunday against the Texans, McCoy ended six of 12 passes for 54 meters and a touchdown. Washington is addicted to McCoy – who Jay Gruden says the team pays “pretty good to be our backup for one reason” – to keep the first place in the division.

Cowboys are coming up, thanks largely for their defense

Cowboys enter Sunday on a two-player winning line and with the potential to steal away the NFC East lead. One victory would improve Dallas’s 2018 record to 6-6 (the same as Washington would be) and 3-1 in the NFC East, while Washington would fall to 2-1. This is another game that contains one of the league’s best defenses. Dallas Defense allows the third minimum score per game and eighth minimum turn per game. They are also the only defender in the league to not allow a quick strike of four or fewer games and have held opponents to a touchdown percentage of just 18.1 percent, the bottom for second best in the NFL. Good luck, McCoy!

Falcons at Saints 8:20 p.m. (NBC)

Drew Brees defies the aging process

This will be the 100th full-time meeting between Falcons and Saints with Falcons leading the 52-47 series. Atlanta is looking forward to snapping his two-matched loss band and tie the season series against New Orleans. But it’s no easy task in Big Easy because Brees has played some of the best football in his 13-year career. His 76.9 final championship is a career best and NFL’s best this season and he threw 25 touchdowns into just one intercept this season while leading the Saints to a 9-1 record.

The Saints have scored 40 (!) Or more points in six matches this season and three of their last four, while Falcons ranked 29 in both yards and points are allowed per game. So if you liked what you saw on Monday you will want to set up tonight!

Falcon’s defense may be bad, but the crime has no shortage of spellmakers.

The fake had seven players recording a reception against the cowboys on Sunday, marking the ninth consecutive row with at least six different recipients receiving a passport from Matt Ryan. Falcon’s crime also has the second best conversion rate on the third level (51.1 percent). It is currently the highest third in franchise history and in addition to Julio Jones – who already has 1,153 meters this season – Calvin Ridley has proven to be hosting Falcon’s first round draft punch this year. He has 53 catches for 532 meters and one leading seven touchdowns. Look for him to make a big impact tonight.
