Thanksgiving is a cheat day for everyone -- even NFL lineman. The average American consumes more than 4,500 calories at their Thanksgiving meal, along with 229 grams of fat.
It's safe to say Eric Wood's dining performance far exceeds the national average.
The Buffalo Bills lineman tweeted a photo of what appears to be a weight gain score sheet from Thanksgiving Day, which reveals that the lineman upped his weight from 302 to almost 310 pounds in the span of a day.
That's 7.4 pounds of consumption.
New Thanksgiving tradition I suggest adapting: weigh in when you arrive and leave. Tough to see but I gained 7.4 pic.twitter.com/8omkKsterw

No word on whether this was a family competition, but if it was, Wood seems to have had some impressive competition. Another score on that sheet showed another person gaining 6.6 pounds.
But considering that Wood had 70 pounds on his competitor, the Bills lineman got schooled in percentage of weight gained.
