No, the Falcons don't play today, but you're going to need something to watch while your uncles are dabbing and the gravy is working its way into your heart, where it will reside for the rest of your natural life. Why not football?

Here's everything you need to know to tune in today, and two of these games might even be good! That's an added bonus.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Detroit Lions

Game time: 12:30 p.m. EST

Location: Ford Field, Detroit, Michigan

SB Nation Sites: Bleeding Green Nation | Pride of Detroit

This one's likely to be pretty putrid. The Eagles have been a massive disappointment and there are grumblings that Chip Kelly is on his way out of Philadelphia, and the Lions are a team about to clean house that just so happens to have a decent defense. I'd go with Detroit on Thanksgiving, for a change.

Carolina Panthers @ Dallas Cowboys

Game time: 4:30 p.m. EST

Location: Massive Monument to Jerry Jones' Hubris, Arlington, Texas

SB Nation Sites: Cat Scratch Reader | Blogging the Boys

Could be a very good game. Tony Romo is back, Dez Bryant is healthy, the Cowboys defense is rallying a bit, and they get the undefeated Panthers at home. Carolina has to lose sooner or later, and what better time than a day where Falcons fans are thankful?

Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers

Game time: 8:30 p.m. EST

Location: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, Wisconsin

SB Nation Sites: Windy City Gridiron | Acme Packing Company

The Packerse have been playing pretty poorly of late and the Bears are suddenly rolling, and when you throw in the divisional nature of the game, it's very possible Chicago makes this a close game. Given how tired you're likely to be at this point, let's hope.

Use this as your discussion thread for every Thanksgiving game.
