Thanksgiving Night: San Francisco 49ers @ Baltimore Ravens
Sunday Night: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Kansas City Chiefs
Monday Night: New York Giants @ New Orleans Saints

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 12:

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Predacons
This one is going to be so close that even their benches are projected to score the same number of points. A Preds win would guarantee them the top playoff seed, but who wants that? It's still a curse if the bad thing happens 90% of the time, right?

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Lightning
This just in: the Bolts can still win the 3FL North. They'll need to win out and get some help, but it is possible. FitzCorp is mired in a four game losing streak that saw them go from having a lead in the division to clawing to keep a hold on a postseason berth. They control their own destiny, but it won't be easy.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Is this week shaping up to have the best matchups or what? Another close battle here, with Tom Brady running up the score before everyone crosses their fingers while watching Coach Drew's kicker on MNF.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
SpiVi has been the top scoring team the past two weeks in a row, and there's no reason that trend won't continue. They just jumped ahead of the Marauders to take the total points lead as well. We'll know a lot more about this game after the Thursday games - these teams combine to start almost half of their players on Thanksgiving day.

Marauders (-1) vs. The Comfy Chair
Coach Hoss just did an overhaul of his squad, adding and dropping 6 players in preparation for this week's games. But that doesn't change the fact that Colt McCoy is his starting QB. Still, he'll have a slight edge against the Seats, who are in desperate need of a win to stay in the playoff hunt.

And the game of the week...

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
This is going to be a five day battle with the loser teetering on the brink of missing the playoffs. They each have players active from Thursday afternoon until Monday night, with that final prime time matchup including two from each team. Their QBs will face off against each other and their RBs are coming out of the same backfield. It should be a great one.

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week!
