Thanksgiving Day In The NFL

The “Frog Days of Fall” are filled with “The Boys of Fall”, and so is Thanksgiving Day. Years ago, the Detroit Lions were the first (and only) team in the NFL to play their regular weekly game on a day other than Sunday – Thursday, Thanksgiving Day. It didn’t take long for “America’s Team” Dallas Cowboys to join in hosting a Thanksgiving Day game. Of course, whoever played the Lions or Cowboys had to play on Thanksgiving Day too, on the road!

Then, along came the NFL Network, and needing a prime time game after the Lions and Cowboys were over, they launched a Thanksgiving evening game.

Finally, the Detroit Lions are worth watching on Thanksgiving with their 7-3 record, hosting the undefeated Green Bay Packers – game time 12:30 p.m. on Fox.

The Dallas Cowboys (6-4) play at home against the improving Miami Dolphins (3-7), who were good enough to clobber the Bills last Sunday. Game time – 4:15 p.m. on CBS.

And the nightcap features the San Francisco 49ers (9-1) at Baltimore Ravens (7-3) at 8:20 p.m. on the NFL Network (good luck finding that one).

With three great games on tap for Thanksgiving Day, when will there be time for Thanksgiving Dinner? Well, there’ll be three half-times, so that should be plenty of time.
