The Lions have played on every Thanksgiving since 1934 (with the exception of 1941-44) and in some cases have actually defeated the visiting team; though the last time that actually occurred was back in 2003 against the Green Bay Packers when quarteback Brett Farve was in his prime. They have lost every game since 2003 by a margin of eleven to thirty-seven points.
So what are the odds of Detroit winning this Thanksgiving?
Slim. The 8-2 New England Patriots are coming to town after beating their rivals on Sunday evening, and to be honest the Detroit Lions only chance of not losing is if President Obama pardons them before they suffer another humilating loss.
Another wasted three hour time slot on Thanksgiving day.
