It's the Bears. It's the Packers. That's a statement you expect to hear said in a deep powerful voice. Two of the classic NFL teams playing on Thanksgiving Day, which has become synonymous with football.
We've seen two blowouts already today with the Lions wiping the field with the Eagles, and the Panthers pummeling the Cowboys. At the outset, the Packers and Bears don't appear to be built to blow anyone out this season. In fact, both teams have looked pretty bad of late. But the game still features Aaron Rodgers who can put the team on his shoulders given the right match-up. So, we'll see.
This is the after dinner game of the day. Or perhaps the during dinner game, depending on when you are eating and what time zone you're in. Beware of the tryptophan and gravy slumber.
