Here is Extra Mustard’s drinking game for Thanksgiving football.
You think because it’s Thanksgiving the Thursday games are going to be any good?
Okay, fine, the NFL’s Thanksgiving slate this year is actually not completely terrible. The Eagles and Lions game could be filled with defensive touchdowns. The Packers always find new ways to torment the Bears. And the Panthers have one of the most exciting players in football.
Of course, any positive football happenings will be canceled out by slow-eating family members and a startling lack of gravy for how much you plan to use. Fortunately, our Thanksgiving drinking game extravaganza is here to make sure nothing can bother you on this special day.
