From the looks of it, there are only two teams on our schedule that could be named as Thanksgiving day games. Before the.offseason started it looked to almost definitely be Houston Texans at Detroit, they were the better of the two teams, and another young upcoming team that made the playoffs for the first time last year. But they have looked like poo this offseason, losing quite a handful of players. Which brings up the possibility of us playing Indianapolis Colts on Turkey day.
For the past 10 years or so, the NFL has done us the favor of giving us pretty much the best team on our schedule, and.usually one of the top 3-4 teams in the league as our opponent. Could this be the year we repay the favor and they judge watching us win (an expected) blowout would be good enough for the TV audience?
Seems like a good way to keep Indy from playing a different Prime Time game (every team gets at least one game every year) while still letting everyone get a chance to see Andrew Luck in a big game. Plus with the Lions probably having a bad pass defense again, and it being later in the year, that could set up nicely for Luck to have one.of his best games of the year, which the NFL could feed to their hype machine and start marketing another superstar.
Which team do you guys see us getting this year?
