It's here. The best Thursday of the entire year... it's November 23rd and it's THANKSGIVING FOOTBALL!
And boy does Gridiron & Gravy have a PARTY for you Manchester…
Arrive from 5pm to get warmed up with all the pre-game action from the official Sky Sports HD team. We’ll even throw in the free American-style snacks! Then from 5:30pm it's game time...
Firstly we head to Detroit for a big NFC North matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions. Both teams have had good starts to the season and are in the hunt for a play-off spot, increasingly so after the injury to Green Bay’s QB Aaron Rodgers. Who will take advantage the most? The Vikings will be looking for revenge after last years loss in this game and the Lions will be aiming to reach a .500 Thanksgiving Day record having played on this day every year since 1934!
Then, it's over to the AT&T Stadium as the Los Angeles Chargers head to Dallas looking for a victory vs the Cowboys. Since 1966 the Cowboys have only missed two Thanksgiving games and this year marks the Chargers debut appearance on the festivity. Who will take the spoils? It’s veteran QB Philip Rivers against 2nd year star Dak Prescott with the entirety of America watching…
Finally, it’s over to the NFC East to see the New York Giants take on the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field. The Giants have had a faltering start to the season, but with key players getting healthy and no love lost between the two teams, this is sure to be a great encounter! Washington have star QB Kirk Cousins in fine form and looking to impress in a contract year with every TV and coach in America looking on.
It's the biggest day of American Football in the regular season, but that's not all we have to offer...OH NO! Apart from being surrounded by multiple HD big screens with full volume and unparalleled viewing access across the venue, we also have a host of goodies to ensure that there is only one place to be this Thanksgiving:
