Staff Picks:

There are some prime time games where fans of the black-and-gold couldn’t care less who is victorious. This slate of Thanksgiving games would certainly fall into that category. A game between NFC North Detroit and AFC East Buffalo doesn’t register on most Pittsburgh fans’ minds right now. Throw in an NFC East grudge match followed by NFC North vs. AFC East and it should be a relaxing day of watching games. Plus, when the Steelers are 3-7 and have plenty of issues of their own there isn’t much to worry about for the rest of the league. However, it is football, and some football is better than no football at all.

Nonetheless, hopefully it’s a good game. Follow along with other Pittsburgh Steelers fans in the comment section below as the open thread.

In the meantime, be sure to stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the black and gold. And continue counting down the days until the Steelers travel to play the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12 of the regular season.
