NFL fans are in for a treat on Thanksgiving, and it won't just be the turkey. They will get to see two teams from the NFL's best division square off in what could end up being the best game of the holiday.

The Cowboys are playing host to the Giants on Thanksgiving in a battle of 7-3 teams. They are tied for second place in the NFC East behind the 9-1 Eagles while each holds a 1.5-game lead over the last-place Commanders.

Needless to say, this game will go a long way toward determining which team will have the ability to challenge the Eagles for the top spot in the division. It also could be key in potential tiebreaker scenarios between the teams as they jockey for wild-card positioning.

The Cowboys beat the Giants 23-16 on "Monday Night Football" in Week 2. That was with Cooper Rush at quarterback. Now, the team will have Dak Prescott behind center, so they should, in theory, fare well against a Giants defense that is banged up at cornerback.

7:19 p.m. — Mike McCarthy is challenging the Cowboys' first-and-goal play, as CeeDee Lamb nearly tapped his toes in to get a touchdown. However, his heel came down after his second toe hit in bounds, so this is unlikely to be overturned.
