The slate of daytime NFL games is a central source of excitement and bonding between friends and family for many on Thanksgiving Thursday.

For those big ol' football players who have to go to work today while the rest of the country indulges, that delicious Thanksgiving dinner can't come soon enough. So instead of waiting several hours to partake in a gathering with loved ones, the Vikings got the festivities going early after QB Case Keenum trotted into the Lions' end zone unscathed to extend Minnesota's first-quarter lead.

The pivot then took his opportunity to give thanks after the score, and was quickly joined by his teammates as they gathered around, took their seats at the imaginary table, and got started on a tasty holiday feast in the end zone.

Let the boys eat.
