A bonafide football feast awaits this Thanksgiving weekend

Are you ready for some turkey? Are you ready for some football? Are you ready to eat a football-flavored turkey? Yeah, me neither, but I am fully on board with the first two questions. This is going to be one heck of a Thanksgiving feast.

All three of these games are plenty interesting. All have playoff ramifications. Five of the six teams playing football on Thanksgiving Day could end up in the playoffs. We've got the top two seeds in the NFC, and the one non-playoff club -- Miami -- just happens to have won three in a row after seven straight losses and has been dropping blowout losses on teams.

Besides that, we have a few critical divisional battles over the weekend, and what could be the best Monday night game in quite some time. Oh yeah, and two brothers are coaching against each other on NFL Network on Thanksgiving night, in case you haven't heard. If this isn't the highest-rated event in NFL Network history, I'll eat an entire turkey myself on "NFL GameDay Morning" come Week 13.

Remember, games here are rated as either a footlong, a six-inch, a pita or a finger sandwich.
