The Cowboys haven't lost a Thursday night game in over 40 years. While the team plays in the annual Thanksgiving Day game at 3:30 every year, the Cowboys haven't had as many Thursday games during the season. Here lately, the Cowboys have played on Thursdays following Thanksgiving and this game will make the fourth straight year and the fifth time in six years. But overall, the Cowboys are 5-1 on Thursday nights, winning five straight. The Cowboys' only loss was a 1978 Thursday game against the Vikings. Since then, they've defeated the Packers (2007), Bears (2014), Vikings (2016), Redskins (2017) and Saints (2018).
