Thanksgiving is about three things: giving thanks, food, and football. What could be better?
NFL football games are just as much a part of America’s Thanksgiving tradition as are turkey, mashed potatoes and other trimmings, and pie, lots of pie. This year’s Thanksgiving hosts a lot of exciting NFL matchups, so plan accordingly! Some fans will be enjoying the games from the comfort of their families’ homes, while others will be out in the freezing cold to experience the action.

The day starts off at 12:30 with a Packers Lions game, as the two continue to fight for the NFC North title. The Lions and Packers have met every other year on Thanksgiving, making it a tradition. This agreement has not worked out well for the Lions, as they have dropped nine straight games every year on this day, including four losses to the Packers. Hopefully things will go in their favor this year, but it will take a lot of work to do so.

The day will then continue at 4:30PM when the Raiders travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. The Raiders are currently in last place in their division, which also holds the currently undefeated Kansas City Chiefs. Dallas however has a lot on their hands as every game for them in important. They are currently number one in the NFC East, but with the mess that makes up that division, who knows who will the title.

Thanksgiving day will roll into night, where we will see an AFC North competition take place at 8:30PM. The Ravens, last year’s Super Bowl winners, are not having the best season, and neither are the Steelers. The only team in that division with a winning record are the Cincinnati Bengals. Second and third place are still up for grabs, so this will be an exciting division matchup.

Thanksgiving weekend is also another big time for college football. Teams do not generally meet on Thanksgiving day, but save play for the Saturday after. Some of the biggest rivalries in college football will meet that Saturday, including big matchups like Clemson and South Carolina, Florida and Florida State, UCLA and USC, Alabama and Auburn, Ohio State and Michigan, and more. College football fans and students take these games seriously, and some even stay at school instead of going home for a Thanksgiving meal. In America we like our football, and we like the Thanksgiving football tradition to continue on even after that last Thursday of the month.
