The most delectable NFL sport wasn’t the first one on Thanksgiving Day 2021, but although the extent of play in Bears-Lions left grand to be desired, it did give us a sport that wasn’t determined till the closing kick. And Raiders-Cowboys went a step additional, wanting time beyond law sooner than it too used to be determined on the closing kick. As for Funds-Saints … two shut games out of three ain’t atrocious.
We got out our pink pens and graded the total Thanksgiving Day performances, initiating with the Bears and Lions, two of the worst teams in football — and they looked discover it irresistible. We couldn’t give the winner even an realistic label in that one, however the Raiders confirmed heaps of spark in upsetting the Cowboys in a sport where they were 7.5-level underdogs, per Caesars Sportsbook.
