Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday because of food and football. But it's family that makes all the difference (when I'm not getting yelled at, and even sometimes when I am). It's family that makes this year so special, and it's family that makes me more thankful than ever.
Tom Brady looks just fine. His fans and teammates are relieved.
The New England Patriots quarterback is taking part in the third day of joint practices with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It isn't known if he'll play Friday night when the teams meet in an exhibition game.
In the course of roughly 200 mock drafts over the past month (yeah, I know), a clear pattern has emerged. The top nine players in ESPN's overall rankings are running backs.

Tom Brady led New England on six consecutive second-half touchdown drives and the Patriots rolled to a 52-28 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
The Falcons gladly took advantage of a short-handed Chiefs defense Sunday.
Season opener or Super Bowl, every game is a big game to Bill Belichick.
LSU remembers how close unranked Tennessee came to pulling off the upset a year ago.
After three weeks of Tom Brady's record-setting passing, the Patriots finally put some balance into their offense.
"Any time you go on the road against a tough opponent, you're going to have adversity. That call at the end of the game is a big call to make," running back Stevan Ridley said. "We just have to move on."
"It's all a different ballgame when Brady's in the game," Ridley said. "I think it matters for everybody who's watching sports as well as the team that's out there on the field."
