Turkey! Football! Eagles vs. Cowboys!

According to a report from Conor Orr, the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys are schedule to play on Thanksgiving Day (Week 13). How's that one for a big game?

The Philadelphia Eagles own a 4-1 all-time record in Thanksgiving Day games. Their last appearance on Turkey Day was a 48-20 drubbing of the Arizona Cardinals in Philly. One of the most memorable games in Philadelphia Eagles history was played on Thanksgiving (1989). You may know it as the "Bounty Bowl", where the Eagles crushed the Cowboys with a score of 27-0.

Typically there are a total of three Thanksgiving Day games: noon, afternoon, and evening. According to Adam Hoge, the Eagles and Cowboys will be the afternoon game. Bears vs. Lions is up first and then Seahawks at 49ers is the evening game. The game will take place in Dallas, which is where the Eagles beat the Cowboys to win the 2013 NFC East division crown last season.

The rest of the 2014 NFL schedule is still yet to be released at 8 PM EST. Stay tuned to BGN for more information.
