The Bears and Lions got things started on Thanksgiving Day for Week 12 of the NFL game. We made some predictions for a plate full of NFL action.

The NFL’s Thanksgiving Day roster is always a mixed bag, but be sure. There’s never a perfect fight, but this year’s game is proving to be quite impactful, starting with Chicago Bear face the Detroit Lions in a game it might be the last of Matt Nagy as the head coach of the team.

After the Bears and Lions in Detroit, the Las Vegas Raiders face the Dallas Cowboys in the annual Thanksgiving Day game at Jerry’s World. The Cowboys were well beaten in that game, but their defense was superb all year and the Raiders were reeling.

Nightcap is a fight featuring the Buffalo Bills in New Orleans against the Saints. Buffalo looks more “pretend” than competitors lately and The Saints have struggled without James Winston.

What can we expect to see throughout this glorious NFL Thanksgiving Day? Here are five predictions that could happen…

NFL Thanksgiving Prediction #1: Darnell Mooney goes for 150-plus

Darnell Mooney has been at the top of the big game for weeks now.

Over the past three weeks, the Chicago Bears’ breakout receiver has been targeted 31 times, but he has only managed to roll in 14 passes.

Against the Detroit Lions, I expect Mooney to be a tough target once again, but even if he doesn’t match the 16 targets he saw against the Baltimore Ravens a week ago, he could easily go 150 yards or more in this game.

He averaged over 24 yards per catch against Baltimore last week en route to a day of five catches, 121 yards.

Mooney had to keep the heat against Detroit with Andy Dalton under the center of the Bears.
