Who Is Playing NFL Football On Thanksgiving?
The curtain has closed on a breathtaking week of action in Week 11, and we’re looking forward to the Thanksgiving schedule which kicks off this Thursday, November 23rd.
Below we have listed each game which will take place on America’s national holiday to enjoy alongside your turkey and stuffing.
The NFL‘s Thanksgiving Day games have traditionally included one hosted by the Lions since 1934 and one by the Cowboys since 1966 (with two exceptions in 1975 and 1977) which are both played in the afternoon.
In 2006, a third prime time game was added but it has no fixed teams – leaving it up to the league to decide who plays, with the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers chosen for 2023.

Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions: 12:30pm ET on FOX
The Packers and Lions begin the action in the early afternoon on FOX from Ford Field in Detroit, as the hosts look to continue their three-game win streak and build on a thrilling comeback against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
Detroit hold the second-best record in the league at 8-2, behind only the Philadelphia Eagles currently. If the Eagles fall to defeat against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football, that would leave all three teams tied at 8-2.
Green Bay edged the LA Chargers to record their second win in their last three outings at the weekend, moving to 4-6 and will feel they need a result on the road to keep up with the teams around them in the playoff picture.
