Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers @ Lumen Field

Gobble gobble 🦃

📅 Thursday, November 23rd (Thanksgiving Day!)
⏰ Kickoff @ 5:20 pm
📍 Lumen Field: 800 Occidental Ave S, Seattle

The most delicious thing this Thanksgiving won’t be a basted turkey or garlic mashed potatoes or a slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top. No, it’ll be packing into Lumen Field and hanging around a bunch of strangers and cheering on the Seahawks as loud as you possibly can. Because that’s America, baby. Live and in color.

For the Hawks’ first home game on Turkey Day in the franchise’s history, they’ll be going up against the San Francisco 49ers, their NFC West division rivals. As I write this in late October, the teams hold the top two spots in the division, respectively; the Hawks are at 4-2, getting by after a bummer of a season-starting upset, while the Niners at 5-2 have been on a remarkable hot streak and have only lost two regular season games since October 23rd, 2022.

But really, there’s still plenty of season to go, and anything can happen. And that’s what makes this Thanksgiving primetime game the hottest ticket of the month. As the weather turns cold, it’s gearing up to be a great battle of the running backs, so expect big moves from Zach Charbonnet and Kenneth Walker III on our end and golden boy Christian McCaffrey keeping SF afloat.

Game starts at 5:20, so fill your belly up with good food, be blessed by your turkey’s wishbone, then put on your branded beanie and head to SoDo.
