It was a rough Thanksgiving weekend…and day…for both of my teams. The Green Bay Packers proved that Aaron Rodgers is the most important player to his team than any other player to his team. The Tennessee Titans squandered opportunity after opportunity en route to another divisional loss that knocks them out of the AFC’s sixth wild-card spot. Is there anything more certain than Tennessee losing a divisional game (1-9 in last 10 attempts)? Maybe death and taxes. Maybe.
