An important part of Thanksgiving for many is the football games that take place.. Here’s how to watch the 2019 Thanksgiving football games live.
You start your Thanksgiving with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. However, it wouldn’t be complete without the three Thanksgiving football games that take place. Make sure you don’t miss a beat of any of the games.
There are three games taking place in 2019, just like in previous games. All three games are aired on different networks, starting with the first game on FOX. I know, it’s Thursday, but Thursday Night Football isn’t following the usual rules for Thanksgiving.
First game on FOX
FOX gets to air the Chicago Bears at the Detroit Lions. There is a pre-game show that overruns the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, but this is the only clash in the schedule that you need to consider. The actual game doesn’t kick off until 12:30 p.m. ET.
You can watch the game live on FOX or through the network on your TV if you haven’t cut the cord yet.
Second game on CBS
For the second game, you’re turning your attention to CBS. The game kicks off at 4:30 p.m., with the Buffalo Bills facing the Cowboys on Dallas territory.
There are a few ways to watch the game online. You can watch on CBS live, or you can also turn your attention to CBS All Access, where you can watch the network live.
Third game on NBC
If you usually watch Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime Video, you’ll be disappointed when it comes to the Thanksgiving football games. The last game of the night won’t be on the streamer. The fact that FOX isn’t airing it should have been the big giveaway here.
You’re turning your attention to NBC instead. The game kicks off a little earlier than you’re used to at 8:15 p.m. ET. Watch live on NBC or on the NBC App.
The Thanksgiving football games start at 12:30. Make sure you have your streaming options in order so you don’t have to miss a beat, however you’re celebrating today!
