4) Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers (Week 13)
Finally, the NFL gets Thanksgiving right and gives us a rivalry game between two divisional foes who despise each other. There’s no love lost between these two teams, that’s for sure. When they meet, you can just feel the energy. The animosity is palpable and unlike anything else in pro football.
It’s a game both teams will have circled on their respective calendars. Really, considering how the last meeting between these two rivals — rivals bordering on blood enemies, really — ended, with Richard Sherman’s enthusiasm scaring the bejesus out of white America, I can’t imagine a better game on a day when you’re forced to be around the members of your extended family most likely to find Sherman an abhorrent cretin who doesn’t know the first thing about class.
