25 Turkey Bowl Instagram Captions To Celebrate Food & Football

There’s just something about a Thanksgiving game.

Originally Published: 

Maybe you play an annual Thanksgiving flag football game with your family, your friends, or neighbors. It could be a kids-only face-off before or after a Thanksgiving movie marathon. Or perhaps for you it’s all about kicking back and watching the Cowboys score some touchdowns after a big meal. No matter how you do Thanksgiving football, you’ll probably need a Turkey Bowl Instagram caption to share your celebrations on social media.

Fall and football are an iconic duo, and the pair is at their finest on Thanksgiving Day. The weather is crisp, the food is delish, and the family is gathered. Both the holiday and the sport are steeped in traditions. It just makes sense that Turkey Bowl games get organized for kids and adults alike, whether it’s your family’s annual flag football showdown, a church league, or you and all your best friends.

No matter who shows up to the park to play this year, be there ready to cheer or play, and then head home for the best meal of the year.
