NFL Thanksgiving schedule, times, channels & more

The holiday is upon us, and the time has finally come for the annual NFL Thanksgiving games to be played. Thanksgiving Day games have been a tradition for over fifty years, and the usual suspects are in interesting scenarios this year. The Detroit Lions have won three in a row and are looking to challenge for a Wild Card spot. The Dallas Cowboys are looking strong and challenging for the NFC East.

Thanksgiving Day is typically filled with turkeys, pumpkins, and awesome football games to savor. This year is no different.

Which channels are broadcasting the 2022 NFL season's Thanksgiving games?

Three different broadcast networks will broadcast the three-holiday games. In line with tradition, this year's Thanksgiving NFL games will be played on CBS, FOX, and NBC.

CBS will air the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions (which takes place in Detroit). These franchises will face off in the first of the Thanksgiving games, with a kick-off time of 12:30 p.m. ET.

FOX will then air the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys matchup. The NFC East divisional fixture is the game of the day and is set to kick-off at 4:30 p.m. ET.

NBC will round things off with the New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings in prime time. This will kick-off at 8:20 p.m. ET.
