It was a day and night of firsts as Week 12 of the 2012 NFL season got off to a rousing start on Thursday.
The Houston Texans played on Thanksgiving for the first time in their brief history and picked up a 34-31 overtime win at Detroit, and the Washington Redskins defeated the Dallas Cowboys on Turkey Day for the first time in seven tries.
As for the New England Patriots and New York Jets, a scoreless first quarter was the exception and certainly not the rule on a wild day of football in which the all three road teams came out on top. The six clubs combined for an amazing 202 points.
Now, we didn’t get a chance to make those picks because someone had to carve the turkey. But we’re more than happy to serve up predictions for the remaining 13 courses on Sunday and Monday.
Safe to say we’re hungry to keep our pristine record intact.
