Thanksgiving Day means three things in most households in America: Family, food, and football.

The NFL has graced us with three football games on Turkey Day this year, which will start at 12:30 p.m. ET and last all the way through dinner and into the night. Let’s break down each of the three games with what time they start, odds, and how to watch them.

All odds are courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Thanksgiving Day Football: Week 12

Green Bay Packers (4-6) vs. Detroit Lions (8-2)

Start time: 12:30 p.m. ET
Location: Ford Field, Detroit, Michigan
Live Stream: Fox Sports app
Odds: Lions -7.5, Lions -375, Packers +295

The Lions, somehow, have the second-best record in the NFC just behind the Eagles. Detroit beat the Packers quite easily, 34-20, back in Week 4 of the season. It seems like the oddsmakers are expecting more of the same.

Detroit comes into this game off a comeback win over the Chicago Bears. Green Bay earned a tight win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Washington Commanders (4-7) vs. Dallas Cowboys (7-3)

Start time: 4:30 p.m. ET
Location: AT&T Stadium, Dallas, Texas
Live Stream: Paramount Plus
Odds: Cowboys -11. Cowboys -600, Commanders +440

These two NFC East foes have yet to face off this season, but the Cowboys have proven that they’re in the league’s elite group of teams in 2023 while the Commanders... have not. Dallas comes into this game having won four of their last five games. Washington has lost four of their last five.

This will probably be the most lopsided of the three Thanksgiving games.

San Francisco 49ers (7-3) vs. Seattle Seahawks (6-4)

Start time: 8:20 p.m. ET
Location: Lumen Field, Seattle, Washington
Live Stream: NBC Sports app, Peacock
Odds: 49ers -7, 49ers -310, Seattle +250

This is the third divisional battle of the day on Thanksgiving. This will be the first meeting this season between these two NFC West teams, with the second meeting coming on Dec. 10.

Seattle comes into this game off a loss to the Los Angeles Rams and has lost two of their last three games. San Francisco hit a bump in the road with a three-game losing streak earlier this season, but have bounced back to win their last two games in resounding fashion.
