It’s not often that we get three nationally televised NFL games in one day but that’s exactly the special case each Thanksgiving Day for American’s across the country. While normally games are broken into regions, Thanksgiving brings three games, six teams and one great day stuffed full of football.
With three nationally televised games on the docket today, the Turkey Day football festivities gets kicked off bright and early just minutes after the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. After things wrap up at noon there, we shift our attention to the Motor City and Detroit where the Detroit Lions will be battling the Green Bay Packers.
These teams traditionally meet on Thanksgiving Day in Detroit if not always annually. It’s been a year since they met on Thanksgiving as the Lions battled the Houston Texans last year, but the Packers and Lions are squaring off again and our day already feels right.
There won’t be any logo-less throwback uniforms this year — there won’t even be any Aaron Rodgers — but there will be football in Detroit on Thanksgiving and that’s how you know all is right in the world. Here’s all the information you need to know to catch the first of today’s three NFL Turkey Day games.
