There are three games on Thanksgiving, and the final one on Thursday Night Football will feature two heated rivals from the NFC West.

Thanksgiving is known for plenty of different traditions, but few echo across the country more than watching some NFL football.

Of course, the longtime tradition is to watch two games that feature both the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys, along with their two respective opponents. But, with the inclusion of Thursday Night Football into the mix, a third Thanksgiving game is always welcomed to the dinner table.

This year, the opening Thanksgiving game will feature the 8-2 Lions hosting the 4-6 Green Bay Packers in an NFC North showdown, while the 7-3 Cowboys welcome the 4-7 Washington Commanders to AT&T Stadium.

But, what about the third and final Thanksgiving game? Who is playing that one?

49ers will visit Seahawks for Thursday Night Football on Thanksgiving

The final Thanksgiving game will feature two NFC West rivals who don't like each other much: quarterback Brock Purdy and the division-leading San Francisco 49ers versus the 6-4 Seattle Seahawks, who trail them by a game within the division.

The Hawks actually beat the Niners on Thanksgiving back in 2014, and San Francisco will be seeking revenge in a game that could have serious implications for the NFC West. The 49ers won three games over Seattle last season, including a playoff victory on Wild Card weekend, but the Seahawks own the all-time series 30-20.

Typically, Amazon Prime carries the rights to stream Thursday Night Football. But, for Thanksgiving, NBC will actually broadcast coverage nationwide.

Kickoff time will be on Thursday, Nov. 23 at 8:20 p.m. ET from Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington.
