Thanksgiving 2022 football schedule: What are the NFL games today? TV channels, times, scores

It’s a tradition like no other: NFL football on Thanksgiving Day. And this year, fans are feasting for the eyes three times.

The three Thanksgiving games this season will be the Bills at Lions, Giants at Cowboys, and Patriots at Vikings. Each of these games has captivating stories, and in the case of Giants-Cowboys, an interesting divisional race.

The Bills are second in scoring (28.1 points per game) and fourth in defensive scoring (17.4), although Buffalo has suffered a bit of a lull with losses to the Jets and Vikings in recent weeks. They’ll take on a suddenly hot Lions team with a dangerous offense that ranks eighth in scoring (25.0 points).

Elsewhere, the Giants will take on the Cowboys in a game that would put the winner squarely in second place in the NFC East behind the suddenly mortal Eagles. And in the final game of the day, the Patriots will take on Bill Belichick, a Vikings team that has thrived on close games all season.

Fox’s broadcast team of Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen, and Erin Andrews will be calling the Cowboys-Giants game. This will be the first Thanksgiving that Joe Buck and Troy Aikman haven’t called in quite some time, considering their defection from ESPN over the holiday period.

Patriots on Vikings TV

  • Live broadcast: fuboTV

Although the game will take place on Thursday, Amazon Prime will not have the streaming rights to this game. Instead, it belongs to NBC, which would likely put Mike Tirico, Chris Collinsworth, and Melissa Stark on the call.
