We pick the winners for each Week 12 game, including the three Thanksgiving games.

Week 12 begins today with a tasty Thanksgiving tripleheader featuring lots of NFC action. Traditional Thanksgiving competitors Detroit and Dallas will host games against the Vikings and Chargers respectively, while the prime time game will feature the Giants @ Redskins.

You'll find our picks for those three games as well as the rest of the Thanksgiving weekend games below, for what looks like it could be a fairly lopsided week. Half of the 16 games this week have one of the teams favored by at least a touchdown, and our staff writers have 11 unanimous picks this weekend.

Unfortunately, the Cowboys are not one of those unanimous picks, but perhaps the Cowboys will find a way to break out of their funk against the Chargers anyway.

Here's wishing this Thanksgiving will find you, your family and your friends with many reasons to give thanks.
