Week 13 of NFL action will really get underway tomorrow, as Thanksgiving will give us three different football games to keep an eye on. Things will start with an all-NFC North matchup with the Chicago Bears taking on the Detroit Lions on CBS. (Yes, another all-NFC North game on the home of AFC football.) That will be followed by the Philadelphia Eagles heading to Jerryworld to take on the Dallas Cowboys on FOX, and the main event will take place on NBC with the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers renewing acquaintances once again.
With the schedule setting up the way it is, the folks at FanDuel have gotten an early start on the action and have set up a Thanksgiving Day league for SB Nation readers. The entry fee is $5, and there's a guaranteed $2,000 prize pool with the winner taking home $200.
In addition, if you sign up for a new FanDuel account and enter the promo code SBNATION32, FanDuel will match your deposit, 100%. This is for first-time signups only. . .if you already have a FanDuel account, you are not eligible for the bonus
There are going to be plenty of good fantasy options playing on Thanksgiving, which should make for a pretty interesting league. Do you think you have what it takes to hit the big money in SB Nation's Thanksgiving Day league? There's only one way to find out.
And if you're not interested in the Thanksgiving league, you can still get involved in one of the thousands of leagues that will be centered around the action on Sunday and Monday. If you want to load up on members of the Minnesota Vikings. . .a risky proposition at this point, granted. . .but this might not be a bad week to do it.
The Panthers' defense isn't the unit it was last year, ranking near the bottom of the league in nearly every defensive category, including 26th against the pass and 22nd against the rush. This could be the week that Teddy Bridgewater bounces back after a couple of rough outings, and guys like Greg Jennings and Charles Johnson could be solid plays as well.
If you've been waiting to get involved with FanDuel, this is probably a pretty good week to do it. Hopefully someone from among our readership will be able to cash in as a part of this week's action.
And remember, use the promo code SBNATION32 to get yourself a little bit extra to play with at FanDuel.
