With the first two NFL games in the books and a good percentage of Thanksgiving dinners off the table, there's still some football left to be played on both the professional and collegiate ranks:
NFL: New England Patriots vs. New York Jets, 8:20 p.m. ET, NBC: Although the Pats seem to be cruising to a division title and the Jets have been a whipping post for jokes and Tim Tebow speculation, this AFC East divisional rivalry might be competitive: when these two teams met in Week 7, the Patriots needed a last-second field goal to force overtime before coming away with a 29-26 win. Since then, the teams' fortunes have gone in different directions, with the win sparking a four-game win streak for New England and a three-game losing streak for the Jets. But New York snapped out of that funk last week with a convincing win over the St. Louis Rams, so perhaps things are turning around for Rex Ryan's squad.
College football: TCU Horned Frogs vs. No. 16 Texas Longhorns 7:30 ET, ESPN: Texas-Texas A&M football on Thanksgiving is now a thing of the past thanks to the Aggies' move to the SEC, but Texas-TCU is here to take its place as the intra-state opponents play for only the second time since the disbanding of the Southwest Conference in the mid-90's. The Longhorns have won four consecutive games, and David Ash has bounced back from a poor 8-for-16, two pick performance in a win against Kansas with back-to-back strong games, completing 80 percent of his passes for 364 yards and two touchdowns last week against Iowa State
