The NFL gave a showcase of three games for fans to watch on Thanksgiving day.
During those games, some players had a big game.
Now with those games in the books, which two players had the biggest game during Thanksgiving day?
2. Amon-Ra St. Brown
Amon-Ra St. Brown had a career day on Thanksgiving day.
His 122 receiving yards were a career high for him during a single game since coming into the NFL in 2021.

He was also part of a Lions scoring drive, as he had a touchdown reception in the second quarter to tie the game.
It was also his first game with a touchdown since September 18th against the Washington Commanders.
With his 122 receiving yards, he posted his third 100+ yard game of this season.
He was also a factor during a critical fourth down late in the game, as he got a first down and helped his team score points.
While the Lions lost the game, St. Brown did everything to help them win the game.
1. Mac Jones
Despite the outcome of the New England Patriots game, Mac Jones had his best game of the season on Thanksgiving day.
His 382 passing yards, two touchdowns, and 119.8 passer rating were all season highs for Jones.
He did everything he could to help his team win, including making an amazing pass to Hunter Henry that got overturned.

While the game didn’t turn out the way Jones was hoping, he was at least showing major improvements over his awful start to 2022.
With those improvements, he had a big Thanksgiving day game, which he hopes to build on.
