It’s Week 13 of “Big Game Bound,” and this week we’re bringing you the show one day early to prepare you for a jam-packed Thanksgiving slate. The Lions host the Bears, the surging Bills travel to Dallas and the Saints look to stay hot in Atlanta.

Also this week, we’re one-on-one with former Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith. We ask him what he misses most about the game, and his thoughts on the playoff push. Plus, how can coaches on the hot seat handle the pressure?

On this week’s episode, which streams exclusively on Nexstar Nation websites starting at 1 p.m. ET, we’ll have:

  • Thanksgiving Football – Matt Roberts from KWKT in Waco previews the Bills vs. Cowboys game. Can Dak get back on track? And are the Cowboys legitimate contenders?
