Who do the Cowboys typically play on Thanksgiving?

For years, the Dallas Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day opponent pretty much depended on which network televised the game. FOX, the network of the National Football Conference, and CBS, which focuses on American Football Conference games, usually have alternated their November holiday schedules every year. The same formula also was true for the early Thanksgiving Day game hosted by the Detroit Lions. If FOX televised the early game, then CBS got the late afternoon game in Dallas. But things have loosened up a bit. In 2015, all network games played on Thanksgiving featured NFC teams. FOX televised the Philadelphia Eagles-Detroit game. CBS did the Carolina Panthers-Dallas game. And NBC televised an evening contest between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers.

Why do the Dallas Cowboys play on Thanksgiving?

In the mid-1960s, the National Football League wanted a late afternoon game to follow the Detroit Lions' traditional Thanksgiving Day contest. When no other team showed interest, Dallas Cowboys president and general manager Tex Schramm jumped at the chance because he realized the game would provide his young franchise a national stage and audience.Schramm's instincts have proved to be correct. Since 1966, the Cowboys have played 50 games on Thanksgiving, and the annually televised contest has become as customary as a turkey dinner with trimmings.In recent years, the NFL has added a third televised Thanksgiving contest, which is played in prime time after the Dallas game.
