For the first time in NFL history, there will be a game held on the day after Thanksgiving, also known as Black Friday. A lot of people have the day off so it makes sense that the league would want to have a game the day after a major American holiday.
Who is playing on Black Friday?
The New York Jets will be hosting the Miami Dolphins in a battle of AFC East squads. The Dolphins have a chance to increase their lead in the division while the Jets continue to find themselves in must-win situations. The Dolphins currently lead the AFC East with a 7-3 record while the Buffalo Bills are trying to catch them with their 6-5 record. Meanwhile, the Jets are really playing catch-up at 4-6.
How many NFL games have been held on Friday?
The last time there was an NFL game on a Friday was during the 2020 season when the Saints and Vikings squared off on Christmas Day. Before that, there hadn't been a Friday game for 11 years with the Titans and Chargers playing on a Friday during the 2009 season.
According to CBS Sports (linked above), since the merger in 1970, there have been nine other games held on a Friday night.
