The National Football League has played games on Thanksgiving since its start in 1920. The tradition, which was inspired by the tradition of college football games played on or around Thanksgiving each year, consists of three games: The first game is hosted by the Detroit Lions who has hosted a Thanksgiving game each year since 1934. The second game is hosted by the Dallas Cowboys who has hosted a Thanksgiving game each year since 1966 with the exceptions of 1975 to 1997. The third game, which has been played since 2006, is a primetime game with no set teams. In 2022, the NFL branded its Thanksgiving games as the John Madden Thanksgiving Celebration in honor of head coach and broadcaster John Madden, who died of undisclosed causes at the age of 85 on December 28, 2021. 

“On behalf of the entire NFL family, we extend our condolences to Virginia, Mike, Joe and their families,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement at the time. “We all know him as the Hall of Fame coach of the Oakland Raiders and broadcaster who worked for every major network, but more than anything, he was a devoted husband, father and grandfather.” He continued, “Nobody loved football more than Coach. He was football. He was an incredible sounding board to me and so many others. There will never be another John Madden, and we will forever be indebted to him for all he did to make football and the NFL what it is today.”
