With week 11 in the NFL coming to an end the table is officially set for Thanksgiving and I’m not talking about a turkey dinner. While everyone will be treated to the more traditional Dolphins-Cowboys and Packers-Lions games that for the first time in over a decade will showcase a relevant Detroit team, it’s the later game that everyone including myself is looking forward to. An inner-conference match-up between two defensive minded heavyweights the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers which will feature brothers John and Jim Harbaugh facing one another in what’s unofficially being dubbed the Har-Bowl.
Not only is the match-up intriguing for the fact that both teams rank among the best in the league in defense, but also because it’ll be the first time in NFL history that two brothers at the head coaching position will oppose one another. First year head coach Jim Harbaugh will be taking his 9-1 49ers team across the country to Baltimore where older brother John Harbaugh will look to spoil Thanksgiving for his younger brother and hand Jim his second loss of the season while hoping to improve his own teams record to 8-3. Having shared a bedroom together for over 18 years growing up in the same household there was a lot of tempers flaring between the Harbaugh brothers and come Thursday evening we can expect to see that same type of hostility carry onto the field as they both try to coach their team to victory in what should be nothing short of a hard-hitting melee.
Catch the Thanksgiving showdown at 5 p.m. on NFL Network.
