Why Do the Lions and the Cowboys Play on Thanksgiving Every Year?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today on our podcast, we aren't going to talk about the Jets. We are going to talk about Thanksgiving football. Every year you see three NFL games. The first one always features the Lions playing at home. The second always features the Cowboys playing at home. Why is this?

I have brought this topic up a few times in written articles, but today I will give you an explanation using the spoken word.

I hope you travel safely if you are hitting the road today. Hopefully this show will help you pass the time at least for a little while as you make your way to friends and family.

Our podcast is called Locked On Jets. You can listen to the show here on GGN, but you can also subscribe to it on iTunes and Audioboom and listen on your mobile device. If you enjoy the show, please subscribe to it and give it good reviews.
