This space is usually reserved for thoughts about the previous week’s wide receiver performances or star pass-catchers not being able to score touchdowns (welcome back to the end zone, Julio Jones!). This week is different, though, because it is Thanksgiving on Thursday and football on Thanksgiving is just about the best thing in all of sports.

What can possibly be better than sitting down with your entire family and eating delicious food? Being able to watch football all day, which is precisely what is available to nearly all of us on fourth Thursday of November every single year. We get blessed with casual conversation between family and friends, an assortment of different delicacies, important football games with fantasy implications and an overall sense of relaxation and comfort.

That’s what I’m thankful for. Let’s check in on the Week 12 wide receivers before we stuff our faces with turkey.
