(RADIO.COM Sports) Like everyone else, the NFL had to make some adjustments for Thanksgiving in 2020.
The third and final game on the league's schedule for Thursday had been slated to be the Baltimore Ravens visiting the Pittsburgh Steelers, but COVID-19 forced the game to be pushed back, upsetting quite a few Steelers players.
Instead, we'll be left with just two Thanksgiving games. The Houston Texans visit the Detroit Lions and the Washington Football Team will play at the Dallas Cowboys. Neither are especially sexy matchups, but that doesn't mean they don't carry quite a bit of importance.
The Lions are coming off of 20-0 loss to the Panthers, and the futures of both general manager Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia -- and perhaps quarterback Matthew Stafford -- hang in the balance. Meanwhile, 2020 has turned into a lost season for the Texans, but quarterback Deshaun Watson and defensive end J.J. Watt led Houston to a 27-20 upset of New England last week. Having won two out of three games, interim coach Romeo Crennel appears to have a chance to land the Texans' job on a full-time basis if his team's play continues to trend in the right direction.
In the second -- and final -- game of the day, the Washington Football Team and Cowboys will quite literally be playing for first place in the lowly NFC East. Both teams won in Week 11, and whichever wins Thursday will pass the Eagles and Giants for the lead in the worst division in the sport.
Before we get into our picks for Week 12, let's take a look at the season-long records of our RADIO.COM Sports central team.
