What’s Thanksgiving Day without football? Feast on NFL games all day long, beginning with an NFC North rivalry game on Fox as the first-place Minnesota Vikings (8-2) visit the second-place Detroit Lions (6-4) at Ford Field. Then on CBS, the 4-6 Los Angeles Chargers head to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, for a matchup against the Dallas Cowboys (5-5). The nightcap on NBC looked a lot better at the start of the season, as the last-place New York Giants (2-8) are at the Washington Redskins (4-6) at FedExField in Landover, Md., in a lackluster NFC East game.
The NFL released its 2017 schedule and the Super Bowl LI champion New England Patriots will open the season at home against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, Sept. 7, on NBC.
