It’s Week 12 of the NFL and American sports fans will celebrate Thanksgiving by being grateful…for football! The Dallas Cowboys hosts the Washington Redskins but don’t expect any turkey to be passed. There are so many fun games this week so find out all about them.
Ahh, football on Thanksgiving. It’s one of those holiday traditions, just as cherished as mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and intense political discussions with family members. In between people wrestling for the last bit of cranberry sauce, the stars of the NFL will take to the field.
One of the most anticipated matches on Thanksgiving is between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins. Fans are eager to see if rookie quarterback, Dak Prescott, 23, can team up with running back sensation Ezekiel Eliott, 21, and give Cowboys fans something to truly be thankful for. Before that match takes place, the Detroit Lions will clash against the Minnesota Vikings in what might be the coldest game of the year.
The Pittsburgh Steelers will close their Thanksgiving out in Indiana, as they’ll spend the holiday with the Indianapolis Colts. Hopefully the Midwesterners have plenty of food to go around. Here are all the games (courtesy of CBS Sports.)
