The NFL regular season keeps on truckin’ tonight, with the Redskins and Giants attempting to shake off the body aches and concussion symptoms of last Sunday’s games so that they can do it all over again this evening in The Meadowlands. 

Thursday Night Football officially kicked off in 2006 when the Broncos and Chiefs met on the first ever Thanksgiving night game. Since then, the package has been expanded from the final few weeks of the season to a weekly fixture on the league calendar. Every team is required to play one Thursday game a season, and the results have been mixed at best.
