Kickoff your Thanksgiving at one of Kauai’s Kalapaki Joe’s locations, where lunch and dinner specials will be served while supplies last.
Three NFL games are on the schedule for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving holiday, the first game being an NFC tilt between the Philadelphia Eagles (4-6) and Detroit Lions (3-7).
The Eagles are still in contention in the NFC East, but will need a win in order to stay a game back of the division leading New York Giants (5-5).
Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions have strung together two straight victories, their latest being an 18-13 win over the Oakland Raiders last week.
Detroit is out of the playoff picture, but will be looking to play spoiler to the Eagles in front of their home crowd.
The second Thanksgiving game features the undefeated Carolina Panthers (10-0) invading Texas to battle the Dallas Cowboys (3-7).
Cam Newton and the Panthers are playing spectacular football and will be looking to build off their 44-16 destruction of the Redskins last week.
Meanwhile, Tony Romo returned to the Dallas lineup last week and helped the Cowboys snap a seven-game losing streak by defeating the Miami Dolphins 24-14.
The Panthers vs. Cowboys game should be an entertaining battle, as Dallas likely needs to win-out to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
The final game on Thanksgiving will feature the Chicago Bears (4-6) taking on the NFC North leading Green Bay Packers (7-3).
The Packers spanked the Vikings (7-3) 30-13 last week, thus taking over top spot in the NFC North.
Prior to the victory, Aaron Rodgers and company had dropped three games in a row to Denver, Carolina and Detroit.
Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears had their first two-game winning streak of the season snapped by the Denver last week, when they suffered a 17-15 home loss to the Broncos.
Jay Cutler and company have looked like a much better team in recent weeks and will hope to carry that momentum in to Sunday night’s game in Green Bay.
