Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions

Thanksgiving Thursday, live on Sky Sports NFL at. 17.30

Can Jared Goff and the Detroit Lions finally get the first win of the season on Thanksgiving Day against the Chicago Bears?

Can Jared Goff and the Detroit Lions finally get the first win of the season on Thanksgiving Day against the Chicago Bears?

NEIL PICKER: Lions

“Andy Dalton versus well, we think Jared Goff as the quarterback for Lions – the state of this game!

“I would say Detroit is finally getting its first win of the season – at home. D’Andre Swift has been driving over 100 yards the last few weeks and I would say this could be the end of the road for Bears head coach Matt Nagy.”

JEFF PICKER: Lions

“I’m taking the lions too. The vultures are circling Chicago – they’re a dead football team, and you’re right, Nagy will be out the door soon.”

Las Vegas Raiders @ Dallas Cowboys

Thanksgiving Thursday, live on Sky Sports NFL at. 21.30

NEIL PICKS: Cowboys

“All six of those teams that played on Thanksgiving night lost last week, so it’s about how you react, and I think the Cowboys are getting on the horse again here. The Raiders seem to be collapsing for me.”

JEFF PICKS: Cowboys

“Cowboys tend to, historically, play well on Thanksgiving – that team enjoys the limelight and being on national television. I also take Dallas home.”

Buffalo Bills @ New Orleans Saints

Thanksgiving Thursday, live on Sky Sports NFL, Friday at. 1.20

NEIL PICKS: Bills

“It was bad from Saints quarterback Trevor Siemian last week, he was missing both of his offensive tackles and no Alvin Kamara – the injuries have come at a bad time for New Orleans – just when it looked like they were on the verge of “I take Buffalo on the road here.”

JEFF PICKS: Bills

“I agree, Bills. The injury sting is real in New Orleans – I heard that as many as nine starters for the Saints will be out for this game … which makes it really hard to win football games.”

Tennessee Titans @ New England Patriots

Sunday, live on Sky Sports NFL at. 18.00

NEIL PICKS: Patriots

“I’m taking New England here. They’ve found their formula, to win five in a row, and to play by your identity is exactly what you want to do at this stage of the season.

“It takes too much of Ryan Tannehill to lead this Titans team alone. He’s not a franchise quarterback who can lead from the front – he needs a system around him – and had four interceptions last week.”

JEFF PICKS: Patriots

“Patriots for me too.”

Los Angeles Rams @ Green Bay Packers

Sunday, live on Sky Sports NFL at. 21.25

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has struggled with a toe injury this week but is still expected to play

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has struggled with a toe injury this week but is still expected to play

NEIL PICKS: Packers

“The Rams have lost two in a row, but the Packers also lost the last game against the Vikings – albeit with a good offensive display.

“It’s at Lambeau Field, and I’m saying Green Bay’s putting a little more pressure on Sean McVay and the Rams – Packers at home for me.”

JEFF PICKER: Packers

“Aaron Rodgers seems to be dealing with a grass toe injury – he’s had it a few times before, but he says it’s the worst ever – and that worries me, therefore, as it affects his throwing platform.

“The Rams need a signature win, a great achievement – going into Green Bay and getting it done could be just the catalyst they need, but I do not see that happening.”

Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore Ravens

Sunday Night Football, live on Sky Sports NFL, Monday at. 1.20

Lamar Jackson is expected to return to the field for the Baltimore Ravens after missing last week's victory due to illness

Lamar Jackson is expected to return to the field for the Baltimore Ravens after missing last week’s victory due to illness

NEIL PICKER: Ravne

“I want to base this on Lamar Jackson being back as quarterback for the Ravens for this one. I feel like they’re going to figure things out in this one – Baltimore at home.”

JEFF PICKER: Ravne

“The Ravens have a better team, but they’ve had moments in defense this season where they have not looked very good – and against some not so great teams – but they are finding a way to win.”

Seattle Seahawks @ Washington Football Team

Monday Night Football, live on Sky Sports NFL, Tuesday at 1.15

Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have been having a hard time since returning from injury

Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have been having a hard time since returning from injury

NEIL PICKS: Washington

“Russell Wilson has looked away since returning to Seattle. He has been late for throws and has had zero touchdown passes where the team has only earned 13 points in its two games left after an injury.

“Washington has won two in a row and I want to support them to reach three with a win at home that would pretty much end Seattle’s season.”

JEFF PICKS: Washington

“No matter which team loses this, put a fork in them, they’re done. I’ll take Washington, too.”
