Thursday Night Football open thread: Finish your Thanksgiving off with an old NFC East rivalry

Giants at Redskins, talk about it on Thanksgiving.

NFL: New York Giants at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The first two games of Thanksgiving did not offer us the entertainment value we were looking for.

At least we have this juggernaut of a game waiting for us.

The Giants beat the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday and at this point, the NFL makes no sense.

Meanwhile, the Skins were basically screwed over on their game winning drive against the New Orleans Saints on an atrocious international grounding call that cost them field position, a down and a chance at a game winning field goal.

That's how topsy turvy the 2017 NFL season is at this point.

Kirk Cousins continues to perform well enough to show he's worth the astronomical contract he will command in the offseason.

Meanwhile, Eli Manning and the Giants have been beset by injury, but they looked absolutely lost before that occurred.

After today, the NFL needs a good game, but the way it has been, it'll likely be a blowout.

Skins 34

Giants 14
