Thanksgiving day was a stunning one with the Dallas Cowboys facing off against the New York Giants.

With both teams having a winning record, NFL fans were hungry for this game on Thanksgiving day.

But how hungry were fans on Thanksgiving to watch this NFC East rivalry game?


Cowboys, Giants Game Set An NFL Record

A Friday night tweet by Adam Schefter reveals how many people were watching the NFC East rivalry game on Thanksgiving.

With 42 million viewers, it became the most-watched game in NFL history during the regular season.

While the Super Bowl gets much larger numbers than this, it’s still an impressive number of viewers.

The 42 million is a huge number compared to the average number of viewers the NFL gets for regular season games.

During the 2021 season, the NFL had an average of 17.1 million viewers, which was the most since 2015.

With the Cowboys and Giants game, their viewership was more than double the NFL average from 2021.

However, what likely helped the viewership is the record of both teams, as they are both currently playoff contenders.

While their record helps, it was also the Cowboys being “America’s team,” that gave the game a viewership push.

Thanksgiving day of 2021 also saw the Cowboys breaking an NFL viewership record, proving NFL fans love “America’s team.”

With the mix of the teams involved, their records, and the history of their rivalry, it all gave the elements for a must-watch game.

That’s why people took their time out of Thanksgiving day dinner to watch the epic game between the Cowboys and Giants.
