Are Thanksgiving Games “Premium” Games, or Not?

How do Thanksgiving games compare with the rest of the schedule in terms of demand? Is it a higher than usual demand, or lower?

This chart shows that in the traditional Thanksgiving day cities (Detroit, Dallas) this game is a “premium” game, while in New York, which isn’t a traditional game, demand is actually less than normal:

The fact that it is a night game, in New York could have something to do with it.

The Patriots/Lions game is a sellout, and I don’t think many people are likely to make a trip out to Detroit between now and then, but I thought it would still be interesting to see what the prices were like.
