Thanksgiving Day is approaching; it’s a day for food, family, and football, of course. Even more than turkey and stuffing, NFL games on Thanksgiving Day are a tradition in the US.

For football fans, Thanksgiving is one of the best days of the year. With the exception of a five-year break caused by World War II, it has been going on every year since it started 88 years ago in 1934.

Over the past 17 seasons, the NFL has scheduled a third, prime-time game for Thanksgiving Day. The Patriots and Vikings will play in a showcase game and of course, the Lions and the Cowboys will also get to carry the Thanksgiving tradition forward.

Thanksgiving football is most often associated with the Lions and Cowboys as the tradition actually started with them. The game’s creator, George A. Richards, created it in 1934 to increase attendance, and it was successful.

In 1966, the Cowboys first participated in the holiday game. They have carried on doing so, with the exception of one brief suspension the NFL imposed.

In 2022, that custom will continue. Will the Lions and Cowboys end their losing streaks during the holidays by defeating the Bills and the Giants? Only time will tell.
