Is the NFL that desperate?

Certainly there would be 25+ "better" teams to play on Thanksgiving.

If there was a day where it doesn’t matter who plays, it’s Thanksgiving. And it could very well be Dallas/NYG - who isn’t watching that?

NYG-Dallas was one of the highest rated regular season games on Thanksgiving in 2022.
Make sure we eat before kickoff

The game itself might cause loss of appetite.

Is a very weird take to have. Giants are a huge market draw and my assumption is it would be against Philly or Washington.
League really is sticking it

Dallas/Washington

did 42m viewers last season on Thanksgiving, which was the 2nd most watched regular season game behind the 2022 Thanksgiving day game which was Dallas/Giants.

TNF
MNF
Sunday
Germany
Thanksgiving

I had the Giants playing one TNF and one MNF game after last year's record. But I didn't expect this.

We’re likely the cupcake for a heavyweight.
since every team has to play one Thursday game  
Giantsfan79 : 5/15/2024 8:34 am : link
isn't Thanksgiving the best Thursday slot available?
Don't love it, but don't mind either

We're just about to start a kitchen remodal, and with the Giants playing we'd host Thanksgiving. It'll give us a chance to take the new kitchen out for a test drive.

By a Jets insider/podcast host on X. This might give an idea of home/away for the Giants if it's true. Giants have the extra home game, would be nice if last two reg season games were at home.

According to BBI and National Media, the Giants have no QB and will suck this year. So, does putting a 2-8 team on Thursday sound like big draw? Giants made the playoffs in 2022.

The 4-7 commanders with an awful QB and a defense ranked last in the league were part of the 2nd most watched game in nfl regular season history. It was a bigger drawn than Lions/Packers earlier in the day, 2 playoff teams, by over 8m viewers. What exactly are you arguing?

Yes. Just got back from school drop off. Hearing Thanksgiving is in play as well. Unclear if it is Dallas or prime time game.

Greer, South Carolina.
Detroit and Dallas

always seem to play on Thanksgiving. I don’t think we should be playing a prime time game on Thanksgiving. No interest in seeing embarrassment again on National TV.
NYG hosting a Thinksgiving night game could be fun  
Chris684 : 5/15/2024 9:14 am : link
We haven't had that before.
Can't imagine  
regischarlotte : 5/15/2024 11:10 am : link
they'd be back in DAL on TDay so quickly. So it almost certainly is the prime time game.

Then again, the rating in 2022 was ridiculously high . . .

Interesting take. I don't hate it.

I'm confident that I am not the only STH who would in fact hate a prime time home game on TDay.

Do you really need to be told that the Giants are a big draw no matter the won/loss record? Not to mention you don't know 2-8 is in the cards anyway.

This place has fetishized negativity. We can't even speculate on the schedule without it.
