Morgan Moses recalls his favorite Thanksgiving moment

For the fourth time in five years, the Washington Football Team will play on Thanksgiving in 2020 with a clash against NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys.

Washington offensive tackle Morgan Moses has been with the Burgundy and Gold since 2014 and has played in all four of Washington's Thanksgiving games since 2016. So, he's well versed in playing on the holiday.

In an interview with NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay, Moses was asked what his favorite memory is of playing on Thanksgiving.

The answer was an easy one for the offensive lineman.

"I would say my favorite thanksgiving moment [was when] we beat the Giants," Moses said. "I know you remember me with the [turkey] legs, playing the drums on the 50-yard line."

Moses is referring to Washington's 2017 holiday victory over the Giants in what was the nightcap on that Thanksgiving slate. It was an ugly game, but the Burgundy and Gold ended up defeating their divisional rival with a 20-10 victory.

After the victory -- in perfect Thanksgiving fashion -- Moses and a handful of his teammates were joined by NBC's Michelle Tafoya for a celebratory turkey. 

When it was time to dig in, Moses quickly grabbed one of the turkey legs. Then, he pretended to play the drums with it before taking an enormous bite. It was quite the scene.

It's easy to see why Moses won't forget that Thanksgiving moment anytime soon. But, with the struggling Dallas Cowboys looming -- a team Washington already defeated by 22 this season -- Moses could have the chance to make more holiday memories come Thursday.
