[BALADO] The Pay Zone: It’s Thanksgiving in the NFL

Not easy, life in the NFL, even in the middle of the week of the festivities.

Meanwhile, life is much better with the Patriots, who have won five in a row. Now they’ve taken over the lead of the AFC East Division from the Bills, which seemed unthinkable just a month ago. They have to be taken seriously, but to what extent?
