The only thing that's more of a Thanksgiving staple than turkey and sweet potatoes is a good, old game of football, which is what every American family settles down to watch after stuffing their faces on Thursday. This year, we can be thankful for a bunch of fantastic NFL and college games — all three of the NFL matchups feature division rivalry games — that are sure to keep you from having to talk politics with your weird uncle. So kick your brother out of the recliner and get to it!
