Thanksgiving Day NFL Games 2022: TV Schedule, Where to Watch, Live Stream

Thanksgiving Day for some people is the opportunity to indulge in turkey and football and this year there will be a chance of having an extra helping of NFL action as a third game has been added to the schedule.

The triple-header of games sees the New York Giants at the Dallas Cowboys, the Buffalo Bills at the Detroit Lions and then primetime will see the New England Patriots go to the the Minnesota Vikings.

For those not at the games, there will be plenty of TV and streaming opportunities for football fans, though a free trial may have to be utilized in some cases.

The CBS game will also be available on Paramount+ while NBC‘s offering will also be streamed on Peacock.

All three Thanksgiving games will be available on fuboTV, which has a free trial for those who have not already signed up to the service.

The Detroit Lions have been playing at home on Thanksgiving Day since 1934, apart from a break for World War II.

The Lions this year had once of the most underrated offenses in the league, under second-year coach Dan Campbell, and are on a winning streak but they will come up against stiff opposition in the Bills.

The Bills were tipped for big things before the season started and while they have had a stuttering time, quarterback Josh Allen is always on the verge of setting off fireworks with the offense.

Expect a close game to kick-off the proceedings on Thanksgiving Day.

The Cowboys got in on the Thanksgiving action in 1966, when they beat the Cleveland Browns 24-16.

They have a decent record on the big day and this season are also going well with a 7-3 record and a thumping of the Minnesota Vikings in their last outing.

This time it is their division rivals who will be arriving at the AT&T Stadium and the Giants boast a similar record to the Cowboys in a game which could decide who will push the Philadelphia Eagles to the NFC East title.

There is a third game for football fans to feast upon this Thanksgiving and it is the first time in over a decade that the Patriots have played on this day.

They have an uphill task, though, as the Vikings are having a stellar season—until last week, that is, when they were comprehensively beaten by the Cowboys in their own back yard by 40-3.

This will mean that they will come out looking to slay the Patriots and get their season back on track.

The Patriots for their part have been a mixed bag but this could make them awkward opponents as you cannot tell what they will pull out of the bag, form-wise.

This could either be a start of a downward spiral for the Vikings or an opportunity to put the Cowboys stuffing behind them, much like those who have had their fill of turkey and all the trimmings before the night game.
