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.

This year, the celebration begins with the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions game airing on CBS beginning at 12:30PM ET, followed by the San Francisco Giants battling the Dallas Cowboys at 4:30PM ET on FOX.

To top off the holiday, watch for the New England Patriots vs. the Minnesota Vikings beginning at 8:20PM ET on NBC.

All about Thanksgiving football

Thanksgiving Day games have always included one game hosted by the Detroit Lions, and one game hosted by the Dallas Cowboys. Why? It's tradition!

In addition, since 1978 the NFL's televised games usually rotate only between three major networks - FOX, CBS, and NBC.
