Week 12 of the 2021 season is lining up to be quite the spectacle. Kicking off the football-packed holiday? Of course, the Lions. Make sure to set those DVRs for 12:30 p.m as Detroit returns to the fields against the Bears, desperate to nab their first win of the season under Dan Campbell. Will they turn their lousy start to the season around? Or will the Bears dominate Ford Field this time around?

Next, at 4:30 p.m.? Get ready for things to heat up as the Raiders and Cowboys go head to head without Dallas wide receiver, Amari Cooper. Can the Texas champs keep up without one of their star players? Or will Vegas walk him with the W? We guess we'll have to wait and find out. You definitely don't wanna miss this one...

Closing out the holiday games, the Bills and Saints are lined up for an 8:20 face off as the night comes to an end. And, well, let's just say the stakes have never been higher. For the first time since 2016, New Orleans' 3 straight losses will see them fighting for their title as champs. Sure, last week, they ranked number 1 in defense. But will their shaky season see them walk home with another loss? Or will they show the Bills - who had a rocky Week 11 - how it's done?

Safe to say, this Turkey Day is bound to be one for the books. Once you're done topping off that Thanksgiving meal and hitting up those Black Friday deals? Kick back on the recliner, flip on Fox Sports, and get ready to see if your fantasy pick gives you reasons to be thankful for. (Or not...)

Either way, stay tuned. And of course, happy holidays.
