It's Thanksgiving. Time to pick between cranberries (thumbs down) and stuffing (thumbs up). It's also time to pick some games, and thus I present you with the Week 13 picks below.
Before we get to that, we have a little accounting to do. This Power Rankings tweet came across from the NFL Twitter account:
First off, "Movember" ends Monday. And on the topic of hair, are those numbers on his chest, or gross squiggly chest fur? Oh, and he should really lower his weight and increase his reps -- he's getting a little boxy. The ladies like the shredded look, like a Julienne salad. I do recommend the onesie he's sporting, however.
I also recommend watching the Packers, whom our NFL Hans is clearly pushing skyward. They deserve it, and I think that trend continues Sunday. For my explanation of that notion -- and analysis on the other 15 contests -- take a look below. And, as always, feel free to share your take ... @HarrisonNFL is the place.
Elliot Harrison went 12-3 on his predictions for Week 12, giving him a record of 116-59-1 so far this season. How will he fare in Week 13? His picks are below.

The key to me is for the Pack to attack the Patriots on the ground. Eddie Lacy's 25 carries last week represented the first time he's received more than 17 totes all season. Also, keep in mind that Darrelle Revis will probably be assigned to Randall Cobb, while Brandon Browner will get some help with Jordy Nelson. It's a formula that means this contest might be a little more about the running games, and slightly less about the famous quarterbacks. #NEvsGB
**A)** The [Chiefs](/teams/kansascitychiefs/profile?team=KC) played Denver tough on the road earlier this year. It was [a 24-17 AFC West classic](http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2014091410/2014/REG2/chiefs@broncos).
**B)** You know Kansas City's players, coaches and everyone else right down to the cleaning staff will want to win this game [for Eric Berry](http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000433839/article/eric-berrys-season-over-will-visit-lymphoma-specialist).
**C)** Berry is also quite integral to what the [Chiefs](/teams/kansascitychiefs/profile?team=KC) do defensively.
Now, maybe Geno Smith can have a 100-plus passer rating in this one. Of course, he's only done that once in his short career, and it was against the Falcons' defense. (So it doesn't really count.) Going to the other side of the ball, Lamar Miller will find the going tough against a stout Jets run defense, so this might be a game in which Ryan Tannehill needs to create plays ... With his legs, perhaps? #MIAvsNYJ
