Traditionally the Week 12 slate has always been one of the most anticipated of the season. In many leagues, Week 12 marks the trade deadline, but normally falling on Thanksgiving, it also means an entire Thursday filled with food, family, friends, and football.

With three games filling up the entire day, we must take a different approach in our usual Thursday Night Football preview. For this week, I’ll take a broad look at all three games and make my favorite picks for each game.

Things haven’t been easy this year, so please take the time to be appreciative for what you still have, and the things that truly matter in life besides football. We wish you the happiest of Thanksgivings and hope you’re able to enjoy a full day’s worth of pigskin with those that mean the most.

Chicago Bears (-3) at Detroit Lions; over/under 41

The opening game of the slate isn’t exactly the most desirable, but there’s still plenty of fantasy ramifications on the line. Rumors are swirling that this could be Matt Nagy’s last game of the helm for Chicago, but it seems odd to let a coach prepare a team to play if his fate’s already decided and the team is still technically in the playoff hunt. It would also go against the 100-plus year history of the franchise never dismissing a coach mid-season.

Detroit won’t part ways with Dan Campbell this week but the league’s only winless team still has plenty of questions- like who will be under center?

Last week’s Thursday Night Football matchup didn’t exactly go as intended. While an entertaining, high-scoring contest would be a nice change of pace, Week 11’s game doesn’t quite project to be filled with too many fireworks.

Last week’s Thursday Night Football matchup didn’t exactly go as intended. While an entertaining, high-scoring contest would be a nice change of pace, Week 11’s game doesn’t quite project to be filled with too many fireworks.

The red-hot 6-4 New England Patriots, winners of four straight and 5-of-6 overall, have surged right back into AFC playoff contention, while the 4-5 Falcons look to regroup after a 40-point dismemberment at the hands of the Cowboys in Dallas last Sunday.

This is a rematch from Super Bowl LI, so get ready for lots of 28-3 references. Aside from that, there are plenty of sports betting, fantasy football, and DFS implications at play, so let’s preview the game…

One week ago we had one of the top matchups of the season on Thursday Night Football and that contest went down to the wire. Unfortunately, we’re back to business as usual in Week 9 as the haggard Jets travel to Indianapolis to take on the disappointing Colts.

While this matchup doesn’t offer up the offensive fireworks that last week’s Packers/Cardinals tilt did, there are still plenty of fantasy-relevant players to account for.

Let’s break down the ninth Thursday Night Football game of the 2021 season and see what NFL, sports betting, and fantasy football fans can expect to see.

Last week was certainly a slate we’re ready to move on from. The expansive bye week wreaked havoc on nearly every fantasy football roster and last Thursday’s showdown between the Browns and Broncos left a lot to be desired.

Fortunately, the schedule makers have blessed football fans with a much more appealing Week 8 tilt between two standout franchises that have won 13 of their combined 14 games.

With two of the NFL’s best quarterbacks and plenty of talented skill position players, this week’s Thursday Night Football game promises to be the best mid-week pigskin that football fans have seen yet in 2021.

Let’s break down what viewers can expect to see between the Arizona Cardinals and visiting Green Bay Packers.

It seems like half the league is on bye thanks to all the fantasy talent missing this week. Yet, the schedule makers were still able to rustle up a seemingly bland Thursday Night Football matchup between the spiraling Denver Broncos and injury-ravaged Cleveland Browns.

After opening the season 3-0, Denver has dropped three straight and hopes to take advantage of the short-handed Browns. Meanwhile, Cleveland has also dropped two straight and enters this week 3-3.

So what kind of impact will Cleveland’s injuries have and what kind of fantasy performances can we expect in the Week 7 version of our Thursday Night Football preview?

Thursday Night Football games sometimes involve losing teams that are forced to trot out an abbreviated playbook. This often leads to sloppy, low-scoring games that leave a little something to be desired.

That won’t be the case in Week 6 as the 4-1 defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers bring their high-octane offense into Lincoln Financial Field to take on the 2-3 Philadelphia Eagles in a game that featured the third-highest over/under (52.5) total on the Week 6 slate.

So what can fantasy football and sports betting fans expect to see in tonight’s matchup?

The NFC West is the toughest division in football, with all four teams boasting powerful offenses and being legitimate playoff contenders.

Playing on a short-rest week is never ideal, but this battle between the 3-1 Los Angeles Rams and the NFL’s sole remaining unbeaten, the 4-0 Arizona Cardinals, should be an exciting matchup.

This showdown opened at 54.5 points, the second-highest over/under on this Week 5 slate, and has not dipped. We should expect to see plenty of fireworks, which means there’s a lot for fantasy football fans to take in.

As nice as it is to have an extra night of NFL action, sometimes the Thursday Night Football games don’t live up to expectations. For Week 4, we have an interesting matchup of the two most recent No. 1 overall picks, Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals versus Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Although it’s not the most intriguing matchup on paper, there are still plenty of fantasy ramifications at stake in this game as Burrow tries to elevate the Bengals to a surprising 3-1 start and Lawrence tries for his first win.

How should fantasy football and sports betting fans approach what looks to be a potentially exciting primetime matchup?

Thursday Night Football games can be quite polarizing. On one hand, it’s great to have another night of NFL action for football fans to absorb, but on the other hand, the matchups often leave a lot to be desired and the games, on abbreviated rest, tend to be difficult to handicap.

Week 3 is a prime example of the downside of these games as the injury-plagued Texans host a red-hot Carolina squad. The undefeated Panthers’ defense has stepped up and the Texans will be forced to trot out their backup quarterback. Can the Texans improve to 3-0 against the spread as sizable home underdogs?
