After we indulge in our Thanksgiving feasts and take in the latest Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, it will be time to crash in the living room and take in a triple-header of NFL action.
NFL Thanksgiving Thursday kicks off with an NFC North clash between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions, before the Dallas Cowboys host the Oakland Raiders in their traditional Thanksgiving game of their own. The action will all come to an end with the best game of the night between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens.
Pittsburgh and Baltimore have the most on the line, with the loser likely eliminating themselves from the postseason mix. Green Bay at Detroit also has playoff implications, but the NFC North is a much tighter race.
On Thanksgiving, teams break their usual routing by coming into the game on short notice, but there is also an extended halftime break.
If you are wondering who will be performing as the halftime entertainment for your favorite team’s game, you can simply check out the list below.
Packers at Lions: singer/songwriter Tony Lucca and the Walled Lake Central marching band
Raiders at Cowboys: Selena Gomez
Steelers at Ravens: Marin Alsop, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the OrchKids, the BSO’s flagship music education program serving inner-city Baltimore students.
