Rating your football watching strength

You will have obligations today. Chat with some relatives. Maybe a political argument or two. I’m late for FaceTimes? Possible. Prepare for that, sure, but most importantly, I want you to strategize when and how to be in front of the TV today. It’s just good training.

Let’s say you can’t watch football all day. Prioritization is the key:

1. Can’t miss: Bills (-9.5) in Lions
This is correct! This game is important. The Lions 4-6 are the hottest team in the league (🀯) and the Bills are playing at Ford Field for the second week in a row. Is Detroit legit? We’ll find out. Wait… Detroit gets a 9.5? Your Majesty.

Time: 12:30 p.m. ET on CBS

2. Not to be missed: Giants at Cowboys (-10)
matching records. check. That’s about it. The stench of fraud lingered in the air of Meadowlands last week. The 7-3 Cowboys, who came off one of the best performances of any team this season — a 40-3 road demolition of the Vikings — have a chance to subdue the 7-3 Giants.

The time: 4:30 p.m. on FOX

3. Best Recreational Value: Mississippi State at Ole Miss (-2.5)
Regardless of the quality of play, this is the most underrated game on the college football schedule each season. Remember when Elijah Moore mimicked urinating in the end zone? (Read this right away.) The plain egg bowl. This year, we might see Lane Kiffin leave in a helicopter for Auburn right after the final whistle.

Time: 7 p.m. on ESPN

4. Best Skip: Patriots at Vikings (-2.5)
Can Minnesota recover from last week’s Cowboys defeat? The problem: The Patriots can’t score, so this is either a huge disappointment to the previously good Vikings offense, or it’s a battle rock that leaves us all unsatisfied.

pulse: Turn it into an Egg Bowl or Scattergories.

The time: 8:20 p.m. on NBC

Michigan State players face charges
Seven Michigan football players have been charged by the District Attorney’s office over an October 29 postgame tunnel incident involving Michigan State football players. The incident saw Wolverines players Jemon Green and Jaden McBurrows being assaulted by a number of Spartan players, causing injury to Green and McBurrows.

Sitting down… with apologies
Strange feelings about the Jets: The team is 6-4, yet the mood is bleak. Zach Wilson was benched yesterday for this weekend’s game β€” the right move, according to our local reporter β€” after Wilson appeared unfazed by his nightmare performance against the Patriots on Sunday. Mike White will start against the Bears, though Wilson apologized to his teammates yesterday.


Food fight

Support the turkey this holiday season

A disturbing narrative has been brewing for the past few years in the popular media: Turkey sucks, and you should find cooler, more hip alternatives to your Thanksgiving spread. cowards.

I would bet a lot of fake money that most of you turkey snobs have never had a good turkey before. I said it. Say I’m in a Big Turkey pocket all you want, but put a little effort into your turkey and you’ll find it’s arguably our most underrated meat. Smoke it, cover it with brine, deep fry it, whatever. It is a versatile bird.

I’ll be back for a good turkey, but first, give your vote to our top poll: Is turkey good?
