2024 NFL Thanksgiving schedule: Teams, kickoff times, where to watch, TV, streaming for holiday tripleheader


Thanksgiving and NFL football, it’s about as American as you can get. Football and Thanksgiving have gone hand-in-hand for about a century now, as the Detroit Lions‘ tradition of playing on this special Thursday started in 1934, while the Dallas Cowboys started their Thanksgiving tradition in 1966, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

This year, we once again have a Turkey Day tripleheader, starting at 12:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, Nov. 28, and rolling through the night with the last kickoff scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET. Below, we will break down the three Thanksgiving matchups that will come in 2024.

The Lions are 37-45-2 all-time on Thanksgiving, and were actually upset by the rival Green Bay Packers last year, as Jordan Love threw three touchdowns. 

Last time these two teams played: Bears 28, Lions 13, Week 14 (2023) – Justin Fields and the Bears upset the Lions in Chicago, as Goff turned the ball over three times while the Lions failed to score a single point in the second half.

Just like last year, “America’s Team” will host a division rival at 4:30 p.m. ET on Thanksgiving. However, instead of the Washington Commanders, it’s the New York Football Giants this time around. The Cowboys didn’t have the sexiest offseason of all time, but they did reinforce the trenches with the draft selections of Tyler Guyton and Cooper Beebe, and may have found a steal in Western Michigan pass rusher Marshawn Kneeland

As for the Giants, they are running it back…
