Week 12 of the NFL season kicks off with the special Thanksgiving Day slate of games.

First, the Buffalo Bills (7-3) play their second consecutive game at Ford Field — but this time, against the Detroit Lions (4-6). Kickoff is at 11:30 a.m. Arrowhead Time on CBS — locally on KCTV/5. According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Bills are favored by 10 points.

Then it’s a big NFC East battle as the injury-riddled New York Giants (7-3) travel to Texas to face the Dallas Cowboys (7-3). That game will be on FOX (locally on WDAF/4) at 3:30 p.m. DraftKings favors the Cowboys by 10.

Thanksgiving concludes with the New England Patriots (6-4) in Minneapolis to play the Minnesota Vikings (8-2) on NBC -locally on KSHB/41. Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m. DraftKings lists the Vikings as 2.5-point favorites.
