Football is supposed to be there as an outlet for when you get completely sick of your family at Thanksgiving. These games today make me want to hug my family and ask that the TV never be turned on. Yeesh, talk about stinkers. How in the hell did the schedule planners think Oakland would provide any sizzle for a big Thanksgiving game? Not to mention Detroit, but they get the game due to some stupid rule that allows it to always be Dallas and Detroit. Sorry NFL, you're going unwatched today in my house.

We already went thru the reason its the raiders today.
The cowboys have to be on cbs today so the only 2 teams they could play are raiders or chargers.
Since today gets a decent rating anyways they saved the chargers/cowboys game for week 14 a 4:15 game which is the national DH game....why burn that game today when now they will get 2 good ratings.

Also u didnt mention giants/broncos is on tonite too....& if u cant get it thats your fault.

Surprised there is no pregame today on NFL Network or ESPN. Has this always been the case on Thanksgiving?

Perhaps I misremembered.

Im not into pregame shows so im not positive but i dont think espn/nfln do morning pregames today....just the nets doing the games have them today.

NFLN does have a pregame tonite at 6:30 for their game though.

The way the Cowgirls have been playing the Raiders may make this a game!

I can get it, but that game, which once had sizzle, now has none. They're two clearly mediocre teams merely striving to stay in wild card contention. Neither has played well in many weeks.

Usual good CBS PQ, with no problems from the bright spots of sunlight on the field. Audio levels are all over the place, like the A1 is riding the controls. KTVT Dallas via FiOS.

Nice job by CBS having Pat Summerall do the intro to the game.

OTA in Chicago - WBBM. Picture Quality was excellent as normal. I also liked not having the fantasy stats bar going across the bottom of the screen. Looked great!
