Thanksgiving is all about relaxation, spending time with family and stuffing your face with as much food as humanly possible.
And, of course, football.
There are few traditions quite like the NFL on Thanksgiving, and the 2015 edition should be as enticing as always with three games on the menu. Here’s a complete look at the schedule for Thursday, November 26:
NFL Thanksgiving Day Schedule 2015
Eagles at Lions: 12:30 p.m. ET, FOX
Panthers at Cowboys: 4:30 p.m. ET, CBS
Bears at Packers: 8:30 p.m. ET, NBC
The early game features two teams moving in opposite directions. The Lions (3-7), who have the most ever Thanksgiving Day wins, have turned around a poor start with two straight impressive victories, while the Eagles (4-6) are still alive in the ugly NFC East but have dropped two straight and three of their last four.
Up next is probably the most enticing game of the day. The Panthers (10-0) look unstoppable right now, and the Cowboys (3-7), with Tony Romo back under center, have the offensive firepower to at least challenge Carolina’s stingy defense.
Finally, we have an NFC North battle between the Bears (4-6) and Packers (7-3). Green Bay jumped back to the top of the division with a win over Minnesota on Sunday, and while Chicago may be mostly out of the playoff race, John Fox’s team is 4-3 in its last seven (with all three losses coming by three points or less) and would like nothing more than to play spoiler against the Pack.
So, when that tryptophan hits, go ahead and plop yourself on the couch for football all day long.
