If I'm not mistaken, the Cowboys played the Raiders in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day in 2009. The Cowboys played the Chiefs in Kansas City the same year.
Since cross-conference games alternate sites every four years, we should be scheduled to play the Raiders in Oakland and the Chiefs in Dallas.
If that's the case, then the Raiders game, assuming it is on Thanksgiving, would be a FOX game, not a CBS game.
Therefore, the only two crossconference games available to the CBS schedule is Denver and Kansas City. The better for Thanksgiving would be a Denver-Dallas matchup.
I'm going to bet that's the Thanksgiving matchup.
