Patch Poll: Football and Thanksgiving
According to Monday's poll, stuffing is king today.
Somehow in our history football has become synonymous with Thanksgiving. And starting at 11:30 a.m. today and going into the night, pigskins will be flying in four games, both pro and college.
- 11:30 a.m.: Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions on FOX,
- 3 p.m.: Miami Dolphins at Dallas Cowboys on CBS,
- 7 p.m.: Texas at Texas A&M on ESPN and
- 7:30 p.m.: San Francisco 49ers at Baltimore Ravens on the NFL Network.
