3 Things to Know:

• The Cowboys have played on turkey day since 1966, going 31-21-1 on Thanksgiving day games.

• The last time the Raiders and Cowboys played on Thanksgiving came back in 2013 where the Cowboys beat the Raiders 31-24 behind a three-touchdown performance from DeMarco Murray.

• This is the first time the two franchises are playing each other since 2017, where the Cowboys squeaked by the Raiders 20-17 due to a controversial call made on fourth down. Dak Prescott ran a QB sneak leading the chain gang to come out on the field. Prescott was inches short of the first down marker, but referee Gene Steratore put a folded index card in between the ball and the stick, and it touched-- giving Dallas the first down and a chance to nail a field goal which ultimately won them the game.
