Picture this: you've just unbuckled your belt after downing a metric ton of turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving Day. Your body's muscle memory from the last dozen Thanksgivings takes over, as you subconsciously walk from the dinner table to the TV room, ready for about six straight hours of uninterrupted NFL football. Heaven on Earth.
2021 is no different from any other year when it comes to Thanksgiving football, as the games will grace television sets nationwide for Week 12 of the regular season. As always, the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys will be featured in two of the games on the holiday. But how can you take in all that the NFL has to offer on Turkey Day?
