There’s a lot to be thankful for in Week 12 of the 2023 NFL season so long as you are thankful for football played by teams other than the Carolina Panthers. There are four games on national television before the Panthers meet the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Three of those games, Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions, Washington Commanders at Dallas Cowboys, and San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks, are on Thanksgiving Day. Miami Dolphins at New York Jets will be the first ever Black Friday game, because the NFL is dead set on playing a game every day of the year.
Thursday is all about divisional rivalries, though some of those games might be more lopsided than others. The great news for Panthers fans is that you can put these games on with your families instead of arguing about politics or being directly disappointed in our own favorite team.
Thanks to a partnership between our friends over at Tallysight and the folks at DraftKings Sportsbook (where you can check out odds for tonight’s game), we can bring you a helpful widget* to keep track of the staff picks here at CSR for each game this season.
*It’s just a table, but it’s a pretty table.
This is now an open thread for all of today’s games!
