Week 13 Thanksgiving Picks
The Sports Kids Week 13 NFL Picks
Green BayPackers [5-5-1] @ Detroit Lions [6-5]
This is a huge Divisional matchup for the two teams and both are on losing streaks. The Packers will be without Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and are 0-3-1 since he broke his collerbone in week 9. Matt Flynn will likely get the start for Green Bay. It should be a close game, and the winner will be in the driver seat in the weak NFC North, so this should be a good one.
Green Bay 24-17 Detroit
Oakland Raiders [4-7] @ Dallas Cowboys [6-5]
Oakland 28-35 Dallas
Pittsburgh Steelers [5-6] Baltimore Ravens [5-6
Not only is this a big rivlalry game but the winner will likely become the front-runner for the AFC's No.6 playoff seed and the loser will be all but eliminated from playoff contention. Wide Receiver Jacoby Jones will look to put up another big game after going off for 103 yards last week but Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers will look to win their sixth of their last 8 games. Both teams will be looking to get to .500.
