For the second time in three years, the St. Louis Cardinals replace the Dallas Cowboys in the annual Thanksgiving Day game. Facing the Miami Dolphins at Busch Stadium, the Cardinals are shredded by Bob Griese, who has a career day passing for 207 yards with six touchdowns as Miami mauls the Cardinals 55-14. It would be the last time that NFL played on Thanksgiving without the Cowboys hosting the second game.
