Giants vs. Cowboys Thanksgiving Day Game Makes History With 42 Million Viewers


The football game that took place on Thanksgiving Day between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants set a record. It was the most-watched NFL regular-season game on network television in NFL history.

The Cowboys defeated the Giants with a 28-20 victory.

Besides just the usual tradition of watching football on Thanksgiving, there are other reasons why this game was so popular.

First, the Cowboys and Giants are popular teams whose cities hold the No.1 and No. 5 media markets in the U.S.

The game also showed two 7-3 teams visibly in the playoff possibilities. The Giants are in the first year of rebuilding under general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll. However, they started the season off surprisingly and have won games against division leaders, the Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens.

At the same, the Cowboys are doing well, being said to have the No. 1 scoring defense. Linebacker Micah Parsons is leading with 12 sacks himself.

The game was close until the fourth quarter.

At halftime, the Giants were beating the Cowboys 13-7. But, the Cowboys came back with three consecutive second-half touchdowns which put the score at 28-13. The Giants touchdown with eight seconds ended the scoring.

Neither team will play again until Sunday, December 4. The Giants will play the Washington Commanders, and the Cowboys will play the Indiana Colts.
