NFL Week 12 Thanksgiving

There are deeply rooted traditions in the world of sports, and in the United States, it’s no exception. NFL Thanksgiving is undoubtedly one of them.

NFL Thanksgiving features three games to look forward to. The first will be played at Ford Field in Detroit, where the Lions will face the Green Bay Packers in one of the most exciting matchups in the entire NFL. Needless to say, this showdown is a rematch of their encounter in Week 4. What can be added as a special fact is that it will be the 22nd matchup on Thanksgiving. The balance stands at 12 wins for the Lions, 8 for the Packers, and one tie.

The other game of NFL Thanksgiving is one of the league’s “Classics”. At AT&T Stadium, the Dallas Cowboys will take on the Washington Commanders. In one of the most frequently repeated duels in Thanksgiving history, this will be the fourth encounter. They will meet later in the season, so the important statistic is that both teams have played on Thanksgiving 10 times, with the Cowboys winning 8 times and Washington only 2 times.

NFL Thanksgiving concludes with an intriguing duel in the Western Nation. In Seattle, the Seahawks will face the San Francisco 49ers. Since 1976, this matchup has seen a total of 50 games, with the Seahawks holding a significant advantage over the 49ers, boasting 30 wins compared to the Californians’ 20.

With this lineup, all that’s left is to wait and not leave your seat for another thrilling NFL Thanksgiving.

Week 12 of the NFL concludes on Monday in Minnesota as the Vikings host the Chicago Bears at U.S. Bank Stadium.
