Thanksgiving Day is traditionally brought you by the three F’s: Family, food and football.

While the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions play every year, players from those teams have not necessarily produced some of the best moments from the final Thursday of November.

Here are some of the top moments from the Thanksgiving Day games over the last several years.

Unforgettable tribute to his mom by Red Bank Catholic QB Alex Brown the day after she died

It was a performance for the ages in the most emotional moment imaginable.

A day after Red Bank Catholic quarterback Alex Brown lost his mom Michelle after her 15-year battle with breast cancer, he came through with an unforgettable tribute for his biggest fan Friday night at Count Basie Field.

The difference is the Warriors are trying to accelerate their shifts as part of quick-tempo offense, a pace head coach Todd Graham ran successfully at Tulsa and Arizona State. In the first half against Portland State, UH ran a play every 22.6 seconds in racing to a 35-7 lead.
