Complete NFL Thanksgiving 2020 schedule: Matchups, TV info and postponements


Thanksgiving is going to be a little bit different this year for most people, and that includes the NFL, too.

For the first time in 13 years, there will only be two NFL games played on Thanksgiving Day.

Keeping up with tradition, the Lions and Cowboys games are still on as they have been since 1978, but the primetime evening game that was supposed to feature the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers has been postponed due to multiple positive COVID tests on the Ravens.

Here is everything you need to know about when and where the games will be played and how you can listen on RADIO.COM.
