Obviously, folks will be truly excited to watch the showdown between the 49ers and Ravens. However, before that, there are some exciting games coming on Thursday on Thanksgiving Day. It goes without saying, but we've got to talk about the Dallas Cowboys and their tilt with the Buffalo Bills.
On top of that, we'll take a look at multiple other games and provide our NFL picks for what should be another thrilling week of action.

Buffalo @ Dallas: 28/11/19 @ 4:30 PM ET
A tradition unlike any other, the Dallas Cowboys will be in action on Thanksgiving Day, this time hosting the Buffalo Bills.
The Cowboys will enter this game with a sour taste in the mouth, as they suffered a rough 13-9 loss to the New England Patriots last week. The offense could not muster up much of anything against the Pats, while some questionable calls didn't help them either.
As for Buffalo, the Bills have been downright impressive this year, posting an 8-3 mark. With Josh Allen leading the offense and the defense being stout as well, Buffalo is a rejuvenated team this year. Will they have what it takes to beat Dallas at AT&T Stadium in Arlington?
The Cowboys are 6.5-point favorites, with 1.35 moneyline NFL odds to come out on top. We think they'll win this game in a close battle.

And the winner on Thanksgiving is...
Cleveland @ Pittsburgh: 01/12/19 @ 1:00 PM ET
Round 2 of this showdown won't feature Myles Garrett or Mason Rudolph. After the brawl that broke out a couple weeks back, Garrett has been suspended indefinitely, while Rudolph has been benched due to poor play.
For the Steelers, that means unknown quarterback Devlin Hodges is getting the starting nod against the Browns. That's great news for Cleveland, which has won three consecutive games and is back in the postseason discussion.
In their current streak, Baker Mayfield has looked like a first-round pick and Jarvis Landry has been his go-to receiver. Pittsburgh's defense, though, won't be an easy opponent.
With T.J. Watt and Minkah Fitzpatrick playing out of this world, they'll do all they can to take down Cleveland.
Though the Steelers will be the home team, Cleveland is hot right now and Hodges could struggle in his first start. We're picking Cleveland.
Week 13 parlay free pick: Packers + Ravens + Chiefs
Self-admittedly, we were a touch off last week in our parlay picks, as we went 2-for-3. Unfortunately, The Falcons went down against Tampa Bay. Will we be able to bounce back for Week 13? We think so.
We're going with the Packers, Ravens and Chiefs to all win this week in games they're favored in. The Packers were embarrassed by the 49ers, but will look to get back on track this week on the road against the Giants.
As for the Ravens, who can stop Lamar Jackson? They'll face San Francisco and their nasty defense this weekend, but Baltimore is playing like the best team in the NFL and can boost their Super Bowl odds with another victory.. With KC, they play Oakland. They should cruise to a win.
- Packers moneyline (1.35) over the Giants
- Ravens moneyline (1.37) over the 49ers
- Chiefs moneyline (1.22) over the Raiders
It's going to be tough for either the Giants, 49ers or Raiders to sneak out a win here. Come Sunday, look for the three favorites to earn victories.
Minnesota @ Seattle: 2/12/19 @ 8:15 PM ET
CenturyLink Field is going to be loud and packed to capacity in Seattle, Wash., as the Seahawks' '12th Man' will be ready for the Minnesota Vikings during Monday Night Football.
The Vikings, who had a bye last week, are 8-3 on the year and tied with the Packers at 8-3 at the top of the NFC North standings.
Seattle has won four consecutive games, with Russell Wilson playing at an MVP-level this year. Tyler Lockett suffered a leg scare, but played in the win over the Eagles and will be good to go against Minnesota.
While this one is expected to be a shootout, Seattle and it's stingy defense will look to contain Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook and Stefon Diggs. Will they succeed? We say yes.
