Hey there. Today’s Clicks were heated up for you by yours truly, Ryan Glasspiegel, purveyor of hot sports takes, food porn, and Packers lamentations.
Pigskin on Turkey Day
The Lions got revenge for the 2012 game that got Matt Flynn PAID, rolling the Packers 40-10. The 435-yard differential between the two teams was the the 7th-most lopsided since the AFL/NFL merger. If any one play were a microcosm of the game, it was Ndamukong Suh’s busting through a double team to sack Flynn for a safety … DeMarco Murray ran for three touchdowns as the Cowboys came from behind to beat the Raiders 31-24. Rashad Jennings stiff-armed a Dallas defender, and then ran over a cameraman. Matt McGloin may not have been heroic, but he did engineer a late-game field goal drive to secure the beloved backdoor cover … Emmanuel Sanders dropped what would have been a game-tying two-point conversion with a little over a minute to go as the Ravens beat the Steelers 22-20. Earlier in the game, Sanders mimicked the Ray Lewis dance and Mike Tomlin may have impeded a possible Jacoby Jones TD.

Since you’re just going to spend today on the couch nursing food-and-whatever-else hangover(s), might as well check out some of the dynamite college hoops being played. No. 1 Michigan State kicks off the day against Mount St. Mary’s at 1 p.m. Later, Marcus Smart—who was the subject of an excellent Brian Phillips profile at Grantland—and his OK State teammates take on Butler at 1:30 p.m. on ESPN. Then the day peaks at 6 p.m. when No. 4 Arizona faces No. 6 Duke at Madison Square Garden. If you haven’t yet, it’s as good a time as any to get acquainted with Jabari Parker.
