Redskins reportedly set to host franchise's first Thanksgiving night game in 2017
Washington will host the night cap for this year's Turkey Day football extravaganza
According to a report, the Washington Redskins will be hosting the franchise's first Thanksgiving game in 2017.
Making it even juicier is the fact that the Redskins will be hosting the game at night against the division rival Giants.
That means a few more things:
1) The Redskins will not be playing the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, as they did last year.
2) This game will likely be on NBC.
4) The Cowboys and Lions will not be playing the Giants.
Those facts are just a bare-bones breakdown of trying to figure out the puzzle that is the NFL schedule, but it does provide a little insight into the Thanksgiving slate of games that we'll see in 2017.
For the Redskins, this will be the 10th time the franchise appears on a Thanksgiving game, but, as Tesfatsion notes, just the first time the Redskins have appeared on Thanksgiving in back-to-back seasons since 1973 and '74.
