Oakland at Dallas @ 4:30 PM NFL Game Live Stream on CBS – AT&T Stadium
The second game on the day will see the Cowboys (6-5) playing host to the Oakland Raiders (4-7) at AT&T Stadium. Neither team has much of a passing-defense, so while Tony Romo should have a big day against the Raiders, some of the clueless gaffes by the Cowboys shows that anything can happen.
If you watched the Cowboys closely against the Denver Broncos or the Lions, you know that nothing is certain until the last seconds tick off. The Cowboys announced on its website that it won’t be wearing a traditional throwback jersey for Thanksgiving this year, but instead will go with their regular blue jersey at home in Thursday’s clash.
Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones, who is also on the NFL’s Competition Committee, was quoted as saying: “I think everything is about putting players’ safety first and foremost.
“I don’t know if it’s a given that moving one helmet to another is an issue, but we haven’t proven that it’s not either. But we’re always going to err on the side of safety. It’s going to give us a new look this year but sometimes there’s nothing wrong with that either.
“We’ll continue to look at that. It doesn’t mean you won’t see alternative helmets in the future. It’s just we want to make sure right now that we always err on the side of players’ safety until we’ve really dotted our i’s and crossed our t’s.”
The Dallas Cowboys carry a 28-16-1 Thanksgiving Day all-time record into Thursday’s encounter.
Meanwhile, Raiders running back Darren McFadden took part in full practice on Wednesday is could feature against the Cowboys. McFadden, who seems to have recovered from a hamstring injury, is being listed as questionable for the Thanksgiving football game and it is understood that coach Dennis Allen is prepared to play him.
McFadden has also made it clear that he wants to play and team sources are saying he will.
