The NFL Thanksgiving schedule for the 2023 season once again features three games, with Detroit and Dallas hosting traditional contests.

Turkey day action in the NFL begins on Thursday, Nov. 23 with the Detroit Lions hosting the Green Bay Packers at Ford Field in Detroit, Mich. The game will be televised by FOX at 12:30pm ET.

Detroit currently leads the NFC North standings with an 8-2 record (2-0 North), two and a half games ahead of the Minnesota Vikings (6-5), who have played one more contest. Green Bay is third in the NFL North with a 4-6 record (1-2 North).

The second NFL Thanksgiving game in 2023 features the Dallas Cowboys playing host to the Washington Commanders at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. CBS will televise the matchup at 4:30pm ET.

Dallas is currently in second place in the NFC East with a 7-3 record (2-1 East), two games behind the division-leading Philadelphia Eagles (9-1). The Washington Commanders (4-7, 0-4 East) are in third-place in the division.

The final NFL game on Thanksgiving day is scheduled for primetime at 8:20pm ET on NBC. The Seattle Seahawks will host the San Francisco 49ers in that matchup at Lumen Field in Seattle, Wash.

San Francisco and Seattle are currently the top two teams in the NFL West. The 49ers are first with a 7-3 record (2-0 West), while the Seahawks are one game behind at 6-4 (1-2 West).

Starting in 2024, the NFL should determine its Thanksgiving matchups with this method:

Detroit and Dallas host the home opponents on their schedule who have gone the longest without appearing on Thanksgiving. Under this criteria Detroit would have hosted Denver and Dallas the LA Rams this year.

The night game would have the team with the longest active drought outside of Detroit and Dallas’ home opponents playing the opponent on their schedule with the longest-active drought outside said teams. That would have made the night game Jacksonville at Cleveland this year, a matchup which lost some of its luster due to the season-ending injury to Deshaun Watson, who like Trevor Lawrence won a CFP title with Clemson.

I am A Fan of both Chicago Bears & Philadelphia Eagles. If Bears were to play on Black Friday FOX 32 would air Bears Game & WPWR 50 would run FOX Sports Programming. have very minor concern for Philadephia I suggest CBS 3 to show Eagles & Philly 57 run CBS College Football Game & FOX 29 run entire FOX Sports Programming keep in mine FOX 29 does not have A duopoly Station.
