Turkey and Statistics?

Thanksgiving NFL Infographic

The NFL took a creative approach to promoting its traditional Thanksgiving Day football games.  The league created a turkey-themed infographic covering a brief history of Thanksgiving success by team and a schedule for the upcoming games.  Sent out through the official NFL Twitter and Facebook accounts, the picture was a quick hit with 377 Favorites, 655 Retweets, 1154 Shares, and 5120 Likes (at the time of writing this post ~5:00 eastern).  The full infographic can be viewed here.

It was good to see a high-profile league finding a place for infographics in promoting some of their most iconic games of the year.  Though it may sound like an odd pairing, inforgaphics are a naturally fit with the holidays.  They allow brands to communicate important facts and numbers in a digestible yet festive manner.  Kudos to the NFL.
