Is there anything better than mowing down a massive plate of turkey while cramming your face with stuffing on Thanksgiving? I have an idea: How about enjoying your feast while feasting on some quality NFL and college football action on Thursday.

Time: 12:30 EST
Point Spread: Chicago -4
Why You Should Watch: With the Packers and Vikings facing off Sunday night, a Bears' win could give them as much as a two-and-a-half game lead in the NFC North.
Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins

Time: 4:30 EST
Point Spread: Dallas -7.5
Why You Should Watch: With a victory over their hated rivals, the Cowboys will move into a first-place tie with the Redskins at 6-5 and should have every reason to believe they can win the division.
New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons

Time: 8:20 EST
Point Spread: New Orleans -13
Why You Should Watch: There might not be a more exciting QB to watch right now than Drew Brees. Plus, look at the point total Vegas is predicting.
Air Force vs. Colorado State

Time: 3:30 EST
Point Spread: Air Force -14.5
Why You Should Watch: This game lost its luster when the Falcons coughed up 21 fourth-quarter points last week to Wyoming to ruin any chances of the postseason. Still, it's always fun to watch the triple option.
Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State

Time: 7:30 EST
Point Spread: Mississippi State -11
Why You Should Watch: It's pretty simple for Ole Miss: Win at home, and they're going bowling. Lose, and the Rebels stay home for the holidays.
