Thanksgiving Day NFL Live Thread

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone! [Thanksgiving Day NFL Live Thread]

11/26/09 in NFL   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I'd like to start things off by saying that I speak for the entire FanIQ family when I say that we're very thankful for you, everyone who visits and enjoys our website, and we hope to continue giving you reasons to come back every day.

On that note, it's time for football. Here are today's games:

Packers at Lions
12:30 pm EST - FOX

Raiders at Cowboys
4:15 pm EST - CBS

Giants at Broncos
8:20 pm EST - NFL Network


On paper, it seems like the Packers and Cowboys should both win in blowouts, but you never know... anything could happen. Either way, I really hope you get the NFL Network, because that Broncos-Giants game has a great chance to be today's best game.

If you're watching the games, chat it up here with us, or feel free to pop in and out throughout the day as you enjoy the holiday with your friends and family. Have an excellent Thanksgiving, everyone, and enjoy the games!

Denver was better and dominated, not too mention only allowing 57 yards rusginh. Where is that dominate rushing attak Giants

11/26/09   |   RainMan   |   381 respect

giants were horrible tonight

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

Good job Denver D to not let you slip even farther...

Uh oh, Broncos, you are on the verge of slipping back into your 2nd half ways of the past few weeks.

11/26/09   |   guylake   |   321 respect

Giants starting to show signs of life.

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

Another field goal....16-0 Denver?!?!?!?!?? Really?

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

the denver D is dominating this game so far....if this keeps up this might be a blowout....or a shutout....

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

This is the Denver Defense I am used to seeing.....not the crap the last 4 games....

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Well Gradkowski is better than Russell, but it's still a pathetic blowout and an easy win for the Cowboys.

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 Touchdown Dallas

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 Cowboys knocking on the door again.

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

And to think with that TD pass.....Gradkowski has thrown more touchdown passes in 2 games then JaMarcus Russell has thrown in the past 9 games......

Just shows 2 things....
1. Gradkowski aint half bad.... AND
2.JaMarcus is TERRIBLE

11/26/09   |   Joe_L   |   12372 respect

WOW the Raiders found the end zone two games in a row. JaMarcus Russell its time to find a new career, your days are numbered.

11/26/09   |   ryeguy   |   46 respect

Thats not a shot, my wife likes him too, I don't get it, he isn't "that" talented.  Shes over 35, but not a NASCAR fan.  Just calling it as I see it..

11/26/09   |   ryeguy   |   46 respect

(Edited by ryeguy)

I didn't understand a single word he sang.  I got the count in to one song , but other than that, he might just as well be singing in Greek.  Americans like him, you can have him..  Seems his target audience is females that are over 35, and NASCAR fans.

11/26/09   |   ryeguy   |   46 respect

Wow, Chris Daughtry sucks live as much as he does on radio.  Can't believe people listen to that..

11/26/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

Im surprised the Raiders are still in this game, even though its only in the second quarter.

11/26/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

Dallas up 3-0.

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 Miles Austin with a huge gain right off the bat.

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 It took a while, but it finally turned into the laugher it should've been.  Now we get to see the Cowboys make it a laugher.

11/26/09   |   SportzStar   |   102 respect

The presentation of the Gobbler is always classic.

11/26/09   |   ryeguy   |   46 respect

Culpepper should have been in when the score was 27-7.  Rest Stafford before the kid does some real damage to himself.  Taking too amny shots that he shouldn't in a nothing game for the Loins at this point.

and now they're losing 27-9 darn go lions

11/26/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

Lions got a safety. 27-9. Too little too late for the Lions.

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

Ohhhhh his elbow was down....lame...

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

That's a TD, his knee hit the player not the ground before the ball came out, and the ruling was a TD origionally, so it should stand

11/26/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

Well, so much for being a competitive game.

11/26/09   |   gau13   |   217 respect

I am torn right now.  I love my Packers and I want them to totally destro the Lions but the guy I am playing on Fantasy Football has Rodgers and he has the guy 31 points already :(

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

(Edited by kramer)

 Might be 27-7 soon. Make that 27-7.

11/26/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

Packers up 20-7. would've been 20-10, Had Hanson not missed that FG.

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

If Madden was still on FOX, Driver would definitely get one of the legs off the 6-legged turkey.

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

I know I have Driver on a couple challenges, he's definitely helping me today.

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

GREAT stop by this Lions defense......Now let's hope Stafford gets a TD instead of an Int....

11/26/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

Packers went for it on 4th down and failed. Wait. What???

11/26/09   |   woody050681   |   13689 respect

I'm racking up the fantasy points today with the Packers defense.

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

............................FAIL, this is the Stafford i remember

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 That call should stand, he had his hands under the ball.

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 INT #3...

11/26/09   |   gau13   |   217 respect

Jeff Reed could learn something from Crosby in tackling.

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

All this singing is stupid....I'm watching this for football, not singing...

11/26/09   |   gau13   |   217 respect

Come on Pack, keep up the pressure!!

11/26/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

At least the Lions are competitive.......So far.

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 Haha, Stafford just got picked off again.

Lions should be lucky to be down 10-3.

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

 Let's hope Crosby doesn't miss this chip shot.

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Finley is okay, guess that "horse collar" penalty was the ref's way of evening things up from that roughing the passer call earlier.

11/26/09   |   mk_donley   |   2554 respect

Ouch, Finley took a heckuva hit! Lets hope he's OK.

11/26/09   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

The pick by Collins was the beginning of the end for the Lions.  Oh, and that "blow to the head" penalty was chincy as hell, he got like 2 fingers on Stafford's helmet.

maybe separating his shoulder caused him to be a better player? like his arm is in a new position thatmakes him throw better.

that would make a lot of sense if it was his throwing arm.....maybe he just got smarter lol...

The Lions score off of a fumble by the Packers on the opening kickoff. 7-0 Lions

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

Woot first and goal for the Lions :P good luck getting it in though, this defence is pretty good...

11/26/09   |   Scott   |   53881 respect

Packers turn the ball over on the opening kickoff... somewhere Gearhead is already hitting the bottle

time to watch the Lions get murdered on Thanksgiving again

11/26/09   |   lavabuster   |   30 respect

According to ESPN, Matthew Stafford is starting despite the injury.....Kid has a pair of big ones...

Can't believe i am saying this but the rookie is our best chance at winning >.< and gives the Lions a chance lol.

Thanks, and I hope everyone has a good Turkey Day! Hopefully the Lions and Raiders can make things competitive enough to make these games bearable.
