The NFL said its Thanksgiving games had the most viewers since 1998, highlighted by the Dallas Cowboys playing the Las Vegas Raiders. CBS aired the late-afternoon game that featured the Cowboys falling to the Raiders in overtime, 36-33. The NFL said the contest averaged 38.3 million viewers across TV and streaming. It was the most-watched NFL regular-season game since December 1990, when the New York Giants played the San Francisco 49ers. That game featured star quarterbacks Phil Simms and Joe Montana and averaged 41.5 million viewers. Fox Sports aired the early Thanksgiving Day game that saw the Chicago Bears beat the Detroit Lions, 16-14. The contest averaged 26.7 million viewers. And NBC,...
    The Las Vegas Raiders beating the Dallas Cowboys 36-33 on Thanksgiving Day put up some outrageous TV ratings. According to a Tuesday report from The Hollywood Reporter, the Raiders earning a massive win over Dallas averaged 37.84 million viewers on CBS.

    During a week of confusion and tumult, reports and rumors, the Chicago Bears needed something to lean on. Anything, really. Burdened by their five-game losing streak and then left to sift through the growing uncertainty regarding coach Matt Nagy’s job security, players and coaches had to push to retain their focus and the concentration of those around them. Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton was happy to do his part. On Wednesday night, at Nagy’s behest, Dalton spoke to the team at their hotel as a way of helping to recenter the group. A day later, he threw for 317 yards, drilled a 17-yard second-quarter touchdown pass to tight end Jimmy Graham and led an 18-play, game-winning field-goal drive that allowed the Bears to edge the last-place Detroit Lions 16-14 on the final snap at Ford Field. Dalton’s Thanksgiving eve pep talk? “I just spoke from the heart,” he said. “It’s what it all boils down to. I just felt like there was something in talking about what we needed in this moment.” Added receiver Darnell Mooney on...
    Playing on Thanksgiving is nothing new for the Chicago Bears, who have done it 37 times — the third most in the NFL. Known as the Decatur and then Chicago Staleys for its first two Thanksgiving games, the team competed on the November holiday annually for 19 consecutive years from 1920-38. The venue that has hosted the Bears most on Thanksgiving — 11 times — is Wrigley Field. Here’s a look back at the team’s record on the holiday from the past century. Memorable Thanksgiving game moments for the Bears Nov. 26, 1925: The Bears and Chicago Cardinals play to a scoreless tie at Wrigley Field before 36,000 people — then the largest crowd in professional football history. It’s also the first professional football game for Red Grange, whose signing from the University of Illinois days earlier is credited with helping legitimize the NFL. The teams face each other on Thanksgiving in 1926 — with the game resulting in another scoreless tie. Nov. 29, 1934: The defending champion Bears defeat the Lions 19-16 in the...
    (CNN)Daniel Carlson kicked a 29-yard field goal in overtime to condemn the Dallas Cowboys to a heartbreaking home 36-33 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving. In what was a penalty-ridden NFL game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, a pass interference called on Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown kept the Raiders drive alive in overtime with the scores knotted up. The penalty allowed Las Vegas quarterback Derek Carr to set his team up within manageable field goal range to claim a famous victory, and Carlson duly converted his fifth field goal of the game. The win ends a three-game losing streak for the Raiders and is their first Thanksgiving victory since 1968. It is a crushing defeat for the Cowboys who have Super Bowl aspirations this season.

    The Chicago Bears will try to move past a strange couple of days and focus on topping the Detroit Lions on Thursday at Ford Field. After the Bears’ fifth straight loss Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, their short week to get ready for the Lions was disrupted by a report that the Bears planned to fire coach Matt Nagy after the Thanksgiving game. Bears Chairman George McCaskey told players and coaches that report was not true, according to the Athletic, but it still put a wrinkle in the team’s preparations. Now the Bears will try to put that distraction out of their minds as they get ready to start quarterback Andy Dalton for the first time since Sept. 19. Dalton will start in place of Justin Fields, who is recovering from a ribs injury he suffered during the game against the Ravens. Meanwhile, the 0-9-1 Lions will try for their first win of the season behind quarterback Jared Goff, who recovered from an oblique injury and is expected to start, according to NFL Network.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — It’s Thanksgiving week, which means two things. For one, the world is getting an awful Detroit Lions football game. And secondly, everyone is spending their limited time on this earth having arguments about food. Whether it’s power rankings for side dishes, or passionate cases stating that turkey is actually bird trash, or arguments about which pie is best, people just love fighting about food on Thanksgiving week. Even though we are free to eat whatever we’d like, and those of us with plentiful options on Thanksgiving should simply be thankful about how fortunate we are, the fights persist. Fortunately, we’ve got the perfect antidote: Aaron Rodgers’ COVID toe. Apparently, when Rodgers said on Pat McAfee’s show this week that he was dealing with “COVID toe,” it wasn’t a joke. It’s a real thing. (We’re 22 months into this thing and we’re just now hearing about COVID toe? Come on, Fauci. What are we paying you for?) And because all of you fools decided to spend the week arguing about yams vs. stuffing vs. macaroni and cheese,...
    He began another game in a life of games with an emotion he never showed. “I can’t believe I’m sitting here,’ Dick Vitale said Tuesday night. He was crying, the tears falling, his face a mudslide of emotion. “I’m sorry,’ he said. The ESPN voice of college basketball choked up then, before the start of another big game, No. 1 Gonzaga versus No. 2 UCLA, in a manner that didn’t need apologizing. “Let’s get this game going and talk some basketball,’ he said. Dickie V has cancer. He turned to sports for what the doctors, the chemotherapy, the regimen of pills and tests and medical charts can’t provide. Happiness. Diversion. “The medicine of basketball,’ he said at one point on the telecast. Isn’t that it? Doesn’t what surrounds our games often tell more of their impact than what’s in them? A Dolphins fan from Illinois was buried with a Dan Marino jersey this year for the happiness the former quarterback brought to his life. A 9-year-old in Utah suffering himself from...
    For a short week, the lead-up to the Chicago Bears’ game against the Detroit Lions on Thursday has had a whole lot of drama. An injury to rookie quarterback Justin Fields and the return of veteran Andy Dalton as the starter. A report that coach Matt Nagy had been told he will be fired after the Thanksgiving game and Nagy’s subsequent denial. And — oh, yeah — the Bears trying to move past a five-game losing streak after giving up game-winning drives in the last minute of the last two games. Now the Bears face the Lions, whose own ongoing drama is that they haven’t won a game since Dec. 6, 2020. The opponent? The Bears. As Thursday’s kickoff approaches, here’s our snapshot look at the game. Chicago Bears (3-7) at Detroit Lions (0-9-1) Kickoff: 11:30 a.m. Thursday at Ford Field in Detroit.

    The Chicago Bears have reportedly made the decision to fire head coach Matt Nagy. According to The Patch, Nagy has been informed that the Thanksgiving game against Detroit will be his final game with the team. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) It was previously reported that the majority of the locker room had turned on Nagy and wanted to see him get fired. An overwhelming number of #Bears’ players want Matt Nagy gone, league sources say. “He lost some of the locker room last season, but now it’s gone,” one source adds. One key holdup: No HC in the 101-year franchise history has ever been let go during the season. — Jordan Schultz (@Schultz_Report) November 22, 2021 If Nagy has been told he’ll be fired after the game Thursday, why would he even bother coaching it? That makes no sense to me. Florida was going to let Dan Mullen coach against FSU, but he just accepted getting axed as soon as it became clear that was his fate. Gators coach Dan Mullen declined...
    Playing on Thanksgiving is nothing new for the Chicago Bears, who have done it 36 times — tied for the third most in the NFL.

    By the time Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy and his players spoke to the media Monday at Halas Hall, they had only about 72 hours to prepare for Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions. The quick turnaround demanded they move on quickly from Sunday’s brutal 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Here are three things we heard from Nagy and players as they regrouped. 1. As Justin Fields deals with injured ribs, the turnaround is reportedly too quick for him to start against the Lions. Nagy didn’t provide an update on the injured ribs Fields suffered in the third quarter Sunday, though multiple reports — including an Instagram video of Fields — said initial tests showed his ribs are bruised but not broken. Fields also reportedly had his spleen checked out, but Nagy said the injury is only to Fields’ ribs. NFL Network reported Monday night that after a day of tests on Fields’ injury, the Bears determined they will start Andy Dalton instead of Fields on Thursday. Nagy said the Bears were evaluating Fields’...
    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — After the Steelers game vs. the Baltimore Ravens was postponed to Wednesday with a kickoff time scheduled for 3:40 p.m., the team is providing fans an excuse form they can use to make sure they are able to watch the big matchup. The Steelers game vs. the Ravens has been postponed multiple times now, due to Coronavirus cases among players and staff within both organizations. The game was initially to be played on Thanksgiving night, before being postponed to Sunday afternoon, then moved to Tuesday night. It was then moved to Wednesday with an afternoon kickoff time of 3:40 p.m. The Steelers had some fun with this game time, providing a fill-in-the-blank excuse form on Twitter, that fans could use to get out of whatever plans they have so that they can watch the game on Wednesday afternoon.

    Tom Pennington/Getty Images It’s been a mightily disappointing season for both the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Football Team. But thanks to the historically bad NFC East, both teams are still very much in the hunt for a playoff spot. The winner of Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day tilt in Arlington will be the only NFC squad with 4 wins — a remarkably low number for a division leader 11 games into a season. And so despite the fact that these two clubs aren’t very good, this game should have playoff intensity. Also, both teams have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks. Both teams come in off of wins — with the Cowboys particularly impressing by turning back the Minnesota Vikings on the road in Minneapolis. And the atmosphere will be somewhat normal. There will be fans on hand at AT&T Stadium on Thursday. A crowd in excess of 20,000, roughly 25 percent of capacity, is expected. Kickoff is shortly after 4:30 p.m. ET. The game will air on FOX. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman have the call. The action can...
    Jon Gruden: the grinch of Thanksgiving. The Raiders coach was not in a festive mood Wednesday when asked if there was a favorite dish that needed to be on his table Thursday for Thanksgiving dinner. “You’re killing me with some of your questions, man,” Gruden told the inquiring reporter. “I’m just hoping I got a place to go. Right now, we lose to Kansas City, I’m lucky to have a place to go.” Gruden was apparently still getting over Sunday night’s crushing loss to the Chiefs, in which the Raiders took the lead with 1:43 left, only to have Patrick Mahomes play hero and spark another game-winning drive with 28 seconds to spare. Despite the 35-31 loss, Gruden still had plenty to be thankful for. The Raiders are 6-4 after going a combined 11-21 in Gruden’s first two seasons back on the sideline. While they missed out on a chance to close within a game of the Chiefs in the AFC West, they still have a shot to go to the playoffs for the first time since 2016. After...
    Leon Halip/Getty Images In a year where so much is different, one thing has remained the same: The Detroit Lions stink. And just like always, they will offend NFL fans for three hours on Thanksgiving Day with a putrid brand of football. Yes, it’s a uniquely American tradition to turn on the television early Thursday afternoon, and watch the Lions muck their way through a game against some usually superior foe. This year, however, the Lions just might have a chance. The 4-6 Detroit squad, which would probably need to win their remaining six games to have a chance at the playoffs in a highly-competitive NFC, are taking on the 3-7 Houston Texans — who have massively disappointed this season. These two clubs have had putrid seasons. But at least the game should be competitive. There will be no fans on hand at Ford Field Thursday. But at least the tradition of mediocre football on turkey day in the Motor City endures. It’s one thing for which we can all be truly thankful. Kickoff is shortly after...

While the Lions haven’t done much winning on their big holiday through the years, there still have been some great individual performances during the years that fans might have forgotten which powered the Lions to big things on the field.

    If it seems like the Dallas Cowboys always play on Thanksgiving, well, that’s because they do. The Cowboys’ annual tradition of playing on the American holiday, which began in 1966, originated as something of a publicity stunt for America’s Team. Following the Lions’ lead from decades earlier, the concept became an immediate success and the Cowboys have been a Turkey Day fixture ever since, with a few exceptions. Here’s a brief history lesson, plus a full list of past games and how to watch the 2020 version while stuffing your face with turkey and pie. NFL THANKSGIVING PICKS: Straight up | Against the spread Why do the Cowboys always play on Thanksgiving? The Cowboys’ tradition of playing on Thanksgiving started when then-general manager Tex Schramm signed up for the holiday game in 1966. Schramm sought more national publicity and saw Thanksgiving as a way to boost national attention from football fans in and out of Dallas. The NFL was worried about attendance for the game because the Cowboys had been struggling under head coach Tom Landry. Just in case no one showed up, the NFL guaranteed the...
    If it seems like the Detroit Lions always play on Thanksgiving, well, that’s because they do. The Lions’ annual tradition of playing on the American holiday, which began in 1934, is nearly as old as the franchise itself. In fact, they’re the biggest reason why football and Thanksgiving are synonymous, even if the Lions haven’t enjoyed as much success on the holiday as other franchises. Here’s a brief history lesson, plus a full list of past games and how to watch the 2020 version while stuffing your face with turkey and pie. NFL THANKSGIVING PICKS: Straight up | Against the spread Why do the Lions always play on Thanksgiving? It all started on Thanksgiving Day in 1934, when owner George A. Richards decided to play on the holiday to attract more fans. Richards was known for his marketing acumen, and his Thanksgiving plan was an immediate hit.

PNGs leader defiant as lawmakers desert government Dont be a turkey, cancel the Lions on Thanksgiving [UPDATED] The Detroit Lions have played a home game on Thanksgiving Day every year since 1934. © Image: Getty Images The Lions should cancel their Thanksgiving Day game and let essential workers stay safe at home. It’s time for that streak to end. With coronavirus spiking across the United States, and the holiday looming as an inflection point for things to get even worse as people travel, students return from hotspot campuses and families hold gatherings, the NFL has an opportunity to send a clear message to the country that everything is not okay, and normal traditions cannot proceed as usual by canceling its full slate of games on the holiday. That would be Texans at Lions, Football Team at Cowboys, and Ravens at Steelers. Everyone knows, though, that given the choice between doing the right thing and making money, the NFL will secure the bag every time. So, it’s up to local authorities to weigh...
