Watching NFL games on Thanksgiving Day is, for football fans, as much a part of the day's tradition as are eating gobs of turkey and spending time with family. Here is your Thanksgiving Day NFL schedule, along with complete viewing and betting information.
Chicago Bears (5-6) at Detroit Lions (7-4)
Game Time: 12: 30 p.m. ET
Announcers: Jim Nantz, Phil simms, Tracy Wolfson
Odds: Lions -7
The Bears have won two straight, while Detroit lost to the New England Patriots Sunday, 34-9. The Green Bay Packers (8-3) lead the NFC North, leaving the Bears and Lions most likely competing for NFC wild card berths.
Philadelphia Eagles (8-3) at Dallas Cowboys (8-3)
Game Time: 4:30 p.m.
Announcers: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Charissa Thompson
Odds: Dallas -3
Can you root for a tie? This is a game no self-respecting Giants fan can enjoy watching, but one we know you will watch, being Thanksgiving and all. Winner, of course, gets a leg up on the NFC East title.
Seattle Seahawks (7-4) at San Francisco 49ers (7-4)
Game Time: 8:30 p.m.
Announcers: Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, MIchele Tafoya
Odds: Pick 'em
Huge playoff implications here. The Arizona Cardinals (9-2) are leading the NFC West. It seems likely with Dallas and Philly both at 8-3 that one of these two teams is going home without a playoff berth. Thursday night's outcome will tell us a lot about which one that will be.
