Thanksgiving weekend for 2017 begins on Nov. 23 with two of the NFL’s most-watched game telecasts (on average) of the regular season annually: the early afternoon game in Detroit (this year, Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions on Fox) and the late afternoon game in Dallas (this year, Los Angeles Chargers at Dallas Cowboys on CBS). Last year’s Washington-Dallas contest on Fox on Thanksgiving Day drew 35.1 million viewers which was Fox’s most-watched regular season NFL telecast to-date (since acquiring the NFL in 1994) and the largest audience for a Thanksgiving Day game on any network since 1995.
In the late afternoon to the majority of CBS affiliates on Nov. 26, the 8-2 New Orleans Saints visit the 7-3 Los Angeles Rams. The Saints are the first team in NFL history to win eight consecutive regular season games after starting the season with two consecutive losses.
