On Thursday, as the nation celebrates the Thanksgiving holiday, football fans will be able to gather around the television following their feast to take in some action. The NFL Thanksgiving continues for yet another year, with the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys once again a staple on Turkey Day.
This year’s action kicks off at 12:30 p.m. ET when the Lions host the Philadelphia Eagles at Ford Field.
The Dallas Cowboys serve as the main course at 4:30 p.m. ET when they welcome the Carolina Panthers to AT&T Stadium for the latest edition of the NFL’s “Color Rush” invasion. Carolina will be wearing all teal uniforms, while the Cowboys will wear their 75th anniversary throwbacks for the game.
In the nightcap at 8:30 p.m. ET, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers welcome the NFC North rival Chicago Bears to Lambeau Field.
As is always the case, Thanksgiving promises to be an action-packed day full of some entertaining football that you will get to enjoy while trying to avoid falling into your food coma.
Enjoy the day!
