We’re just a couple days away from eating ourselves into a food coma and topping that off with a triple-header of NFL football!

Thanksgiving is just about as synonymous with football as it is overeating and visiting with family these days, and Thursday we’ll see the Bears visit the Lions, the Raiders take on the Cowboys and the Saints entertain the Bills.

It got us to thinking about Thanksgivings past in the NFL, so that’s the basis for this week’s Trivia Tuesday quiz.

Can you name the leading passer (in terms of yardage) in games played on Thanksgiving since 1980?

We’ve given you the year, the team each QB played for and the number of yards — all you have to do is identify the quarterback. There’s a good blend of household names and those who will have you saying “who is that?”

You’ve got ten minutes to finish the task.

Have a great Thanksgiving from all of us at Arizona Sports.com and 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station!
