NFL Thanksgiving Schedule: Picks, Odds And Start Times For Turkey Day Tasty Treats

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. We hope you are as prepared as we are to enjoy three great NFL games the schedule has for us. We have plenty to be thankful for in the real world and that comes first but we are also thankful for the Packers vs. Lions, Dolphins vs. Cowboys and Ravens vs. 49ers. Here's the full TV schedule with start times and other information so you can plan your day around these great games.

Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions, 12:30 p.m. ET / 10:30 p.m. MT on Fox with Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Pam Oliver. Start your Thanksgiving football day off with a chance to watch Aaron Rodgers take on the fifth-ranked pass defense in the league. Given the slide the Lions have been in, we're a bit surprised that Green Bay is only a seven-point favorite. We picked the Packers to feast on this one.

Miami Dolphins at Dallas Cowboys, 4:15 p.m. ET / 2:15 p.m. MT on CBS with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms. This is clearly the stinker game of the day and the Cowboys bandwagon has lightened considerably over the past few years. The Dolphins have won their last three games to knock themselves out of the "Suck for Luck" sweepstakes but all three wins were against questionable teams. The Cowboys have their eye on winning their division and with a healthy Tony Romo are a 7.5-point favorite. We picked the home team.

San Francisco 49ers at Baltimore Ravens, 8:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. MT on NFL Network with Brad Nessler, Mike Mayock and Alex Flanagan. The "Harbowl" is by far the premier match up of the NFL Thanksgiving TV schedule and fortunately it comes later in the day so you will have time to have eaten your big meal, napped through the last game, gotten rid of the most annoying relatives and be fully prepared to soak this one in with a plate of leftovers on your lap. Vegas has this game as a virtual toss up, giving the three-points to the home team. We picked the Ravens.
