Thanksgiving Early Game Thread

Starting off your Thanksgiving Football experience

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles (4-6) @ Detroit Lions (3-7)

Where to Watch: 12:30 on FOX

Spread: Lions by 3

Over/Under: 46

Pre- Game Analysis: For the majority of the season, the Lions have looked like the worst team in the NFL, as they were losing games in an embarrassing fashion. But after the Lions fired their general manager after getting blown out by the Chiefs in London, the Lions have managed to win two straight.

The Eagles have been mediocre this season, as Chip Kelly's big acquisitions have not performed as well as he had hoped. Sam Bradford is not thriving in the Chip Kelly system, DeMarco Murray has majorly regressed, and Nelson Agholor has not made much of an impact this season. The Eagles have been mixing in wins and losses this entire season, and the Eagles are currently in the middle of a two game losing streak.

Prediction: I see the Lions winning this afternoon, but the Eagles will look a lot more respectable if Sam Bradford is starting instead of Mark Sanchez. Lions 30-13.
