Thanksgiving Soccer Plan 2021: What NFL games are on today? TV channels, times, results

Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

There’s nothing like the Thanksgiving Day tradition of food and football, and the NFL’s Thanksgiving Day schedule looks pretty appetizing.

There will be three games on the NFL’s holiday menu this season. There were only two during the 2020 season when the Steelers-Raven nightmare was postponed due to COVID issues. But now the nightcap returns with a fight between the Bills and Saints.

As always, the Lions and Cowboys will be in action in the two previous games. Lions will play a divisional rivalry against the Bears in the 12:30 pm ET slot. It will mark their 82nd career Thanksgiving game since they started playing on holiday back in 1934.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys will face the Raiders in the 16:30 ET game. The Cowboys have broken a career record of 31-21-1 at Thanksgiving, but they lost in a blowout manner against Washington in 2020. They want to avenge that loss by beating up the outspoken Raiders.

Saints Vs. The Bills game may be the most exciting of the Thanksgiving Day fights. Both teams are involved in close divisions and Wild Card races and have strong overall lists. The Bills have the advantage as quarterback, but if Alvin Kamara can recover, the Saints can run at Buffalo.

Here’s everything you need to know about watching the NFL’s three Thanksgiving Day games in 2021.

How to Watch NFL Thanksgiving Games

How to catch every single game on Thanksgiving Day.

Lions vs. Bears TV channel

(12:30 ET kickoff)

  • TV channel: Fox
  • Live stream: fuboTV

Fox’s No. 1 broadcast team – Joe Buck and Troy Aikman – tend to call the Thanksgiving game the network. They may not show the Cowboys this year, but you can still expect them to be on the call for the Lions Bears game, as they usually broadcast “Thursday Night Football” anyway.

Erin Andrews and Kristina Pink have served as a tag team duo as sideline reporters this year, and they will likely continue to make this Fox’s standalone Thanksgiving game.

Mike Pereira serves as Fox’s broadcast rule analyst.

Cowboys vs. Raiders TV channel

(16:30 ET kickoff)

  • TV channel: CBS
  • Live stream: fuboTV

It looks like Jim Nantz and Tony Romo will have the call to CBS in the Cowboys-Raiders game. That means viewers will get to see Romo break down his former team and the starter who replaced him.

Tracy Wolfson is the sideline reporter for Nantz and Romo’s crew, while former NFL Referee Gene Steratore will be CBS ‘rules analyst for the game.

Saints Vs. Bill’s TV channel

(20:20 ET kickoff)

  • TV channel: NBC
  • Live stream: fuboTV

The NBC broadcast seems to be getting a change from its usual Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth duo on Thanksgiving. Michaels usually gets Thanksgiving off and is replaced by Mike Tirico. This year, it looks like Collinsworth will move out of the stand to take a vacation, while Drew Brees will break down his former Saints team in the stand.

Michele Tafoya will serve as the sideline reporter in this game, while Terry McAulay, a recently retired official, will be the NFL rules analyst for the broadcast.
