Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you are enjoying your holiday; maybe you're getting ready to feast soon, or still in the process of cooking up that turkey. However you're spending your day, have a great one.
The anticipation for the Cowboys/Saints matchup is growing, but as usual on Turkey Day, we have to get through the Detroit Lions game first. The Lions welcome Tom Brady and The New England Patriots as their Thanksgiving guests this year.
This is an open thread for game chat.
But this is also a thread with our weekly NFL picks, and a little fun information about Thanksgiving Day ticket prices.
Make the jump...
First, how are tickets doing for the Thanksgiving Day games, including the Cowboys? Our Ticket Partner, TiqIQ, sent us this image. If you're interested in Cowboys tickets, or other games, visit the BTB Ticket Center.
Now, onto BTB's weekly NFL picks.

Last week was a good week for the BTB panel, with everyone getting at least 11 of 16 games right.
Paul pulled off a stunner and got 15 of 16 games right, missing out only on the Redskins' surprise win over the Titans, as did the all the rest of the panelists. Paul was also the only one on the board to correctly call the Bills' epic comeback victory over the Bengals. In other less interesting news, one panel member who prefers to remain anonymous breathes a sigh of relief that his much-maligned mathematical/statistical prognosticating tool finally came through for him and pushed him above 50% for the first time since week three.
This week, Brandon is being especially adventurous, picking the underdog in eight out of 16 games. Aaron and rabblerousr follow with six, Dave and I with five and Paul plays it safe with only four underdog picks.
The Cowboys, Patriots and Jets are all unanimous picks for the Thanksgiving games, while the Browns and Steelers are the only unanimous picks for the remaining week 12 games. Should make for an interesting weekend. Happy thanksgiving.
