WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - Thanksgiving has finally arrived.
The holiday where all of us stuff our faces and talk about current events is here.
Even though many of us love this holiday, sometimes we need a distraction. That’s when football comes in as the perfect escape.
This year at 12:30 PM EST, when the turkey is still cooking in the oven, you can sit down and enjoy Minnesota vs Detroit. The game will be aired on FOX.
If you can't get away for that game, and you’ll be free around 4:30 PM EST when your aunt Susan told you dinner will be ready, but it's not, no need to worry.
The Los Angeles Chargers will be taking on the Dallas Cowboys on CBS.
You may not be able to get through the entire game due to the food finally being ready, and your cousins screaming in your ear because they haven’t seen you all year. But you have one more game that you can enjoy.
The third and final game this year on Thanksgiving will be the New York Giants against the Washington Redskins.
This game will be at 8:30 PM EST and will air on NBC.
By this time, you should be full of turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, and have a little room left for a piece of sweet potato pie.
Hopefully this guide helps you enjoy every second of the best holiday.
Also, I will be happy to take any leftovers off your hands.
