The 2021 NFL slate on Thanksgiving Day was perfectly imperfect. The Lions-Bears game was a total disaster, but it was expected and provided just enough entertainment for the morning. The midday game with the Raiders and Cowboys was gross from an officiating perspective, but it was a shootout and provided some terrific pre-dinner entertainment. The Bills-Saints matchup was abysmal, but by then the food coma had set in and it didn’t matter. Shoutout to Thanksgiving games.
