Yesterday was Thanksgiving, so that means triple the Thursday Night football to cover on this post-turkey edition of One on One's NFL Friday.

Mack Rosenberg and Shaun Cohen take a look at all three of yesterday's Thanksgiving matchups, including a big win in Detroit, a Dallas comeback, and an exciting nightcap between the Steelers and Ravens in Baltimore.

I’d rather not watch Matt Flynn play football anymore. Matthew Stafford really enjoys throwing the ball to the other team. I really don’t want to see Jerry Jones’ face. The Raiders are… well, the Raiders. The Ravens and Steelers aren’t particularly exciting this year.

However, I’ll still be on the floor in pain, moaning because I ate too much, watching the Turkey Day games.

Enough negativity. Let me provide 10 reasons to maintain some level of excitement as we approach Thursday’s games!

Kenny Ducey and Nolan Silbernagel host this week's NFL Friday where they discuss the upcoming matchups for the Giants and Jets, the latest incarnation of Manning vs. Brady, and who to start on your fantasy team.

Kenny and Nolan kick off the show by talking about the Saints' Thursday night win over the Falcons. In light of Atlanta dropping to 2-9, why have they struggled so much this season after coming within a quarter of reaching the Super Bowl in 2012?  On New Orleans' side, do the Saints play well enough on the road to be able to win in the playoffs?

Reasonable Passion or Jail-Worthy Stupidity?

The Simpsons :: FOX

The Simpsons provided a hilarious example of fan treatment of athletes in the classic episode “Homer at the Bat.” Bart and Lisa are taunting Darryl Strawberry when Marge says to them, “Kids, that’s not very nice.” Lisa responds by saying “Mom, they’re professional athletes! They’re used to this. It rolls right off their back.” It then cuts to Strawberry on the field, wiping away a lone tear.

Remember when the Jets were ranked 32nd heading into the 2013 season? I think it is fair to say that the Jets have exceeded those expectations, already.  In fact, I doubt that many predicted this group would be 4-4 heading into Week 9.
