Thursday Games: Green Bay @ Detroit, Miami @ Dallas, San Francisco @ Baltimore
Some of top defenses in the NFL will be on display this Thursday on Thanksgiving. The Green Bay Packers defense will try to bottle up the Detroit Lions offense, and the Baltimore Ravens defense and the San Francisco 49ers defense will battle it out Thursday night. In fact, this week's defensive projections feature many of the Thursday teams.
In non-Thursday games, the New England Patriots defense is playing much better over the last few weeks after a horrible start to the season.
Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 15 top-rated defenses in Week 12. They determine their projections by feeding the stats and matchups into the computer, and the computer responds with its best estimate.
These projections are live and may change before Sunday's action. Come back over the next few days until game time to see where your players stand.
