Rolfe Is Thankful To Avenge His Week 12 Showing

(Note to the readers- Due to the early Tuesday deadline, this edition of Rolfe's picks will be somewhat abbreviated. Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving!)

Rolfe got the stuffing knocked out him in Week 12, going only 4-12. Can this turkey turn things around? Check out this week's picks below; followed by some things to be thankful for that you might not have thought of yesterday...

LIONS (+6) over Patriots- Be thankful that you can watch the dreamy Tom Brady early Thursday afternoon.

Redskins (-1) over COWBOYS- Be thankful that Bruce Coslet is not your team's offensive coordinator (sorry, Cowboy fans).

Titans (+2.5) over GIANTS- Be thankful you're not G-men rookie Tim Carter, who was injured and expected to be out for the season, and then was carjacked a week later.

BILLS (+2) over Dolphins- Be thankful for Bud Selig's leadership, without which major league baseball would have All-Star games ending in ties; playoff games going til 1 am; "small market" teams in cities like Philadelphia and Miami; a team in 2003 with two homes in two different countries; owners lining their pockets with the revenue sharing money stolen from owners who actually try to win; etc.

PACKERS (-9.5) over Bears- Be thankful we live in a time of atheltic greatness; where legends such as Brett Favre, Barry Bonds, Tim Duncan, Dick Tarnstrom, Jerry Bailey, the Williams' sisters, and Pete Lovering (recently crowned champion of the World Rock Paper Scissors Society) are in their primes.

Ravens (-3) over BENGALS- Be thankful that you're not a Bengali fan, since they are the only team mathematically eliminated from the playoffs so far.

Panthers (+7.5) over BROWNS- Be thankful for Direct TV, which means no one is forced to watch this game.

Steelers (-3) over JAGUARS- Be thankful for deodorant, and that almost half the people on the A train now use it.

Cardinals (+9.5) over CHIEFS- Be thankful for over-generous point spreads.

VIKINGS (+3.5) over Falcons- Be thankful for "Cathy," the comic strip that speaks to me and other 30-ish, single, career women everywhere.

Broncos (-3) over CHARGERS- Be thankful that J. Lo and Ben Affleck have found love, and that the local and national media share that love with us every day.

COLTS (-11) over Texans- Be thankful for raisins, "nature's candy."

Rams (+2.5) over EAGLES- Be thankful for important people like Barbra Striesand, Ed Asner, Woody Harrelson, Susan Saradon, etc., for telling us commoners what to think and how to feel. Whatever would we do without Hollywood and its cultural elite?

Seahawks (+10) over 49ERS- Be thankful for trial lawyers, without whom 300+ pound nitwits could not sue McDonald's.

Bucs (+1.5) over SAINTS- Be thankful that you are getting points with the newly crowned "Best Team in the NFL"

Jets (+6) over RAIDERS- Be thankful that you are able to watch "The Natural" himself, Chad Pennington, on primetime this week.

Best bet: Bucs

Record: 82-89-5
