Here's a preview with predictions on the Thanksgiving Day games in the NFL on Thursday.

Miami at Detroit
The Lions are beat up, DT Shawn Rogers won't play and RB Kevin Jones may not either, and just plain awful. Witness last weeks loss to Arizona as proof. The Dolphins are on an opposite track - winning three straight after a 1-6 start. Detroit has history and a solid record of winning on Thanksgiving day games, but Miami has what's most important, a better defense and a better team. Winner: Dolphins.

Tampa Bay at Dallas
The Cowboys and their fans are riding high on the Tony Romo bandwagon after last weeks win over the Colts. Look for the love affair to continue on Thanksgiving. Winner: Cowboys.

Denver at Kansas City
The NFL Network will broadcast its first ever regular season on Thursday night and this has all the makings of an extra Thanksgiving day dessert. The Broncos (7-3) are second in the rugged AFC West and the Chiefs (6-4) are breathing down their necks. Denver is struggling offensively and the calls for Jay Cutler are growing. The Bell backs, Mike and Tatum, are banged up and S Jason Ferguson is lost for the year. Kansas City has Trent Green back and Larry Johnson is in a nice groove after struggling early. Look for Arrowhead to be rockin' and rowdy. Winner: Chiefs.
