What's Turkey Day without the pigskin?

Wall-to-wall football is on the menu again this Thanksgiving, with a holiday triple-header that usually begins around noon, followed by a late afternoon game, and another in prime time.

Since 1978, the NFL's Thanksgiving Day games have traditionally included one game hosted by the Detroit Lions, and one game hosted by the Dallas Cowboys.

Televised games usually rotate between three major networks - FOX, CBS, and NBC.

This Thanksgiving Day, it will be the Detroit Lions hosting the Chicago Bears at 12:30 PM ET on FOX, followed by the Las Vegas Raiders at Dallas Cowboys at 4:30PM ET on CBS. The after-dinner game features the Buffalo Bills at New Orleans Saints beginning at 8:20PM ET on NBC.
