Thanksgiving Day NFL schedule 2022: Which teams are playing, kickoff


0


Thanksgiving Day football just hits different, and this season’s slate of action will feature three games with six teams vying for the playoffs.

The Buffalo Bills and the Detroit Lions start things off in the early afternoon as the appetizer for the day. The Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants will face off for the main course. 

And, for dessert, the Minnesota Vikings will take on the New England Patriots.

The Lions and the Cowboys are Thanksgiving Day staples like turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and awkward dinner table conversations. Detroit has hosted a Thanksgiving Day game every year since 1934, and Dallas has hosted a game every holiday since 1966 except for 1975 and 1977.

In 1925, the Chicago Bears and Chicago Cardinals played to a 0-0 tie at Wrigley Field in front of a crowd of 36,000. In 1934, the Lions played the Bears Thanksgiving Day in the first nationally televised broadcast of a football game. Bronko Nagurski threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Bill Hewitt to seal a 19-16 victory in their first meeting.

This year, the NFL will honor the late John Madden throughout the day. Madden died at the age of 85 last year, just a few days after his documentary was released. The league said the inaugural “John Madden Thanksgiving Celebration” will feature special tributes on CBS, FOX and NBC throughout the slate of games.
