With a little luck, you planned your Thanksgiving dinner for about 15 minutes ago.

After a frantic back-and-forth first game between the Texans and Lions, the Cowboys and Redskins are the tryptophan coma portion of the day.

The Cowboys are throwing the kitchen sink at Robert Griffin III, working as hard as possible to confuse the rookie with a short week of preparation.
