    41 years of Thanksgiving Day games.
    18 wins. 23 losses -- I suppose on the surface that doesn't seem too terrible.

    Enjoy today's game vs the Bears. The Lions are projected to lose.

    And this game has a 41.5 total. If the tryptophan from the turkey won't put you to sleep...this game almost certainly will.

    They need to do away with this lions “tradition” already

    just schedule 2 (doesn’t even need to be 3) games that have potential to be decent matchups

    even if the lions are 10-0 on thanksgiving..nobody generally cares

    always hilarious with these games on in the background on thanksgiving…all the sports fans watching are having barbershop talk about every team/player but the lions :dead:

    NBA Christmas is better because they put the modern marquee teams on TV. Not teams that were polarizing 25 years ago

    The thanksgiving games this year should have been

    Titans at patriots 12:30- CBS

    Rams at Packers 4:30 - FOX

    Bucs at Colts - 8:00 - NBC

    They should flex those games

    Before the merger the Chiefs had a Thanksgiving game but one Thanksgiving game the kids was wilding out. The Chiefs should get back their Thanksgiving game
