He didn’t officially report who would play in the NBC night game but Ourand said during a Sports Illustrated media podcast with Jimmy Traina that Eagles-Vikings is the likely matchup.

The Vikings have never hosted a Thanksgiving game. Assuming this holds up, 3 out of the 4 NFC North teams will end up playing on Thanksgiving.
The Vikings and Eagles played each other early last season and the Vikings came out with a 23-21 victory.
The NFL’s schedule release usually takes place at the end of April. Things could obviously change from now until then, so I wouldn’t mark my calendar yet.
