Breaking your norm of losing on Thanksgiving Day for the past 10 years? Yup. I’d say you’re a huge winner. The Lions beat the curds out of the Packers on Thanksgiving, winning 40-10 at home. The last time they won on Thanksgiving was 2003, coincidentally beating the Packers 22-14 with JOEY HARRINGTON. That’s what happens when the Packers turn it over 5 times though. At any rate, hats off to the Lions for getting the monkey off their back for at least another decade.
Who would have thought that Nick Foles would lead the Eagles to four straight wins, and throw for 19 touchdowns and ZERO interceptions in that span. They still have their work cut out for them the rest of the season, hosting the Lions, traveling to Minnesota, entertaining the Bears, and then a date with Dallas. However, they’ve been playing very impressive, and they’ve got everyone wondering who that other quarterback was that they opened the season with.
We were starting to wonder where the real Colts went for a minute. Powered by five Adam Vinatieri field goals, a defense that forced four turnovers, and then remembering some of why Donald Brown was a 1st Round pick, the Colts won 22-14. Who would have thought not playing Trent Richardson would help a team do so well again.
