2016 NFL Thanksgiving Schedule: Times, TV Schedules, Live Stream

The NFL Thanksgiving schedule is one of the most-watched, and anticipated days of football on the league calendar. We have published the 2016 NFL Thanksgiving TV schedule with the times and matchups for fans to start planning out the big day. Every Turkey Day, NFL fans have grown used to seeing the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys playing during one of the biggest Holidays in the United States. The NFL has played games on Thanksgiving since 1920, and the third game (ie the one without the Cowboys or Lions) does not have any fixed opponents or teams and has been played since 2006. Although two of the three games last year resulted in big blow outs until we had a low-scoring game in the night-cap between the Bears and Packers, this year’s games should prove to be a bit more exciting for fans to watch. Make sure to check the local TV listings if you are watching the games on the television, as the games shift between CBS, FOX, and NBC as you get progressively later on the schedule. If you would like to check out the rest of the 2016 NFL Week 12 schedule (ie the other games during Thanksgiving week), we have those posted along with the schedules of your favorite NFL team and the 2017 NFL playoff schedule. Let’s play some football!!
