2024 NFL Thanksgiving schedule features Giants vs. Cowboys, Dolphins vs. Packers

Must read


In search of its third straight year setting a Thanksgiving Day viewership record, the NFL is sticking to what worked in the past for its 2024 Turkey Day slate.

The Detroit Lions will again host a division rival in the early window. This time, it will be the Chicago Bears and No. 1 overall pick Caleb Williams heading to Detroit. The Dallas Cowboys face the New York Giants at home for the second time in three seasons on Thanksgiving in the 4:30 p.m. ET time slot. And the Green Bay Packers are playing on Thanksgiving for the second straight year; they’ll host the Miami Dolphins.

Including streaming numbers, last year’s Packers-Lions game became the most-watched (33.7 million) early-window Thanksgiving game on record. The Cowboys’ contest against the Washington Commanders (41.8 million) trailed only the Cowboys-Giants contest from the year prior. The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers drew 26.9 million viewers on average, the highest number for a prime-time Thanksgiving game since 2015.

The NFL keeps its momentum the following day with a Black Friday game that airs in the afternoon on Prime Video. The Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs will fill that slot in 2024.
