Since its inception, football and Thanksgiving has been a perfect combination.

From the NFL's humble beginnings in 1920 to today, there has always been football on Thanksgiving and today the holiday is tied to the game of football as much as it is to food and giving thanks.

In 1934, the Detroit Lions played their first game on Thanksgiving and became regular participants on the day, and in 1966 the Dallas Cowboys followed suit.

While recently this tradition has been broken by NFL network's addition of a third game on Thanksgiving, all 10 of the best Thanksgiving day games in NFL history involve the two blue and silver teams.
