Explore NFL Thanksgiving matchups in augmented reality

·1 min read

It’s hard to imagine a Thanksgiving without four things: Family, good food, football and a big parade.

Sadly, due to the pandemic, many Americans won’t be able to travel to see their family, and the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be all virtual. Thursday’s night’s Ravens-Steelers game was postponed until Sunday because of COVID-19 issues. That leaves food and two football games, though, and we’ve created a parade in augmented reality to highlight Houston at Detroit and Washington at Dallas.

Watch both games live for free on the Yahoo Sports app

Explore the scene below with 3D animated parade floats featuring the best players from each matchup.
