By Aaron Tallent, 9 months 6 days ago
A general view in America is that the NFL owns a day of the week in Sunday. By that rationale, the league also owns one holiday of the year in Thanksgiving. It’s hard to think of Turkey Day without the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, and now that third night game popping into your head.   The NFL has actually been playing games on Thanksgiving since its formation in 1920, minus a...

By Rob McVey, 11 months 1 week ago
The Detroit Lions (0-1) will make the long trek to the West Coast to face the San Francisco 49ers (0-1) on Sunday at Levi’s Stadium.
