Many sports fans will say you can't have Thanksgiving without football and so the NFL has loaded up the schedule with three games. All three are on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.

The live coverage starts at Noon with second game coverage at 4pm and game three at 7:30pm.

Noon  Chicago @ Detroit: The Lions always host of Thanksgiving and this time former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia leads them into this holiday game. It's been a rocky road so far for Detroit at 4-6. The Bears are lead the NFC North at 7-3 but may not having their starting quarterback available because of injury.

4PM  Washington @ Dallas: All of a sudden this game becomes very important to both teams. The Redskins are 6-4 but the Cowboys check in at 5-5. Washington lost its starting QB Alex Smith to injury last week.

7:30PM  Atlanta @ New Orleans: Drew Brees and the Saints are on some kind of a roll. They are trying to join the LA Rams at 10-1 with a win. The Falcons have been disappointing and at 4-6 face a must win.

NOTE:  The New England Patriots come off their bye week to play the New York Jets on Sunday. Live coverage on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket begins at 10am Sunday morning.
