The 'NFL Turkey Leg/Galloping Gobbler Award' quiz

Happy Thanksgiving, quiz takers. Here's to you having all the turkey, stuffing and NFL football you can handle today. Speaking of, the NFL festivities kick off at 12:30 p.m. ET on Fox where the Detroit Lions host their division rivals, the Chicago Bears. The afternoon tilt has the Las Vegas Raiders taking on the Dallas Cowboys at 4:30 p.m. ET on CBS. Then finally, in the nightcap, Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills head to NOLA to challenge the New Orleans Saints as both teams look to bounce back from their respective losses in Week 11. 

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Inspired by John Madden, CBS began handing out the Turkey Leg Award in 1989 to the best player from the annual Thanksgiving prime-time game. In 1994, the award switched over to Fox when Madden began working there, and in 2002 it became the Galloping Gobbler Award once Madden's tenure at Fox was finished. For two seasons, it was known simply as the Game Ball. Now, it is the Fox WWE Championship Belt. Over that time, 46 players have taken home the award. How many of those players can you name in five minutes? 

Good luck!
