For your (hopefully) socially distant Thanksgiving entertainment, the Houston Texans are traveling to the Motor City to take on the Detroit Lions. This is the 81st time since 1934 that the Lions will host a Thanksgiving Day game, their second against the Texans.   At this point, the Lions (4-6) are more known for their Thanksgiving game tradition, or for being the team on Tim Allen's...

The Detroit Lions' Thanksgiving Quarterbacks, Ranked

By Athlon Sports, 2 months 4 days ago
One of the great Thanksgiving traditions is snickering at who is playing quarterback for the Detroit Lions.   The list of Lions quarterbacks starting on Thanksgiving is an amalgam of draft busts, journeymen, career backups, and former stars whose best days had gone by.   Giggling at Lions quarterbacks on Thanksgiving, though, has gotten tougher thanks to Matthew Stafford. He may...

10 Most Memorable Thanksgiving Day Moments in NFL History

By Aaron Tallent, 2 months 1 week ago
A general view in America is that the NFL owns a day of the week in Sunday and one holiday of the year in Thanksgiving. Even with travel limited because of the pandemic, 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...

New Orleans Saints vs. Detroit Lions Prediction and Preview

By John La Fleur, 3 months 3 weeks ago
After dropping consecutive games for the first time since starting 0-2 in 2017, the New Orleans Saints will have a chance for redemption on Sunday when they travel to play the Detroit Lions.   The story has been the same for New Orleans early in 2020: they were once again hampered by penalties, especially in pass defense.

Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals Prediction and Preview

By Eric Sorenson, 4 months 3 days ago
This third game of the 2020 NFL season will be an interesting indicator of how far the Arizona Cardinals have come in their last 19 contests. The Kyler Murray/Kliff Kingsbury era in the Valley of the Sun started last season with the Detroit Lions as their opponent in Game One. And it didn't go as expected. The boys from Eminem-land shot out to a 24-6 lead before Murray could get his feet...

Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers Prediction and Preview

By Gabe Salgado, 4 months 1 week ago
The NFC North continues its early-season showcase this week when the Green Bay Packers host the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field. The Packers (1-0) won their sixth straight season-opening game last week as they scored 43 points against the Vikings in Minnesota.

By Gabe Salgado, 4 months 2 weeks ago
The Chicago Bears and the Detroit Lions will kick off the 2020 NFL season against one another in what should be another, hard-hitting NFC North matchup, also known as the "Black and Blue" division. Both teams come into this challenging season with something to prove. The Bears are looking to rebound after falling below expectations in 2019, while the Lions are looking to finally turn...

Detroit Lions Depth Chart

By Athlon Sports, 4 months 3 weeks ago
The Detroit Lions went 3-12-1 last year, finishing fourth in the NFC North. The Lions went 0-8 in games Matthew Stafford didn't play so his healthy return will be critical. However, head coach Matt Patricia's calling card was supposed to defense and that side of the ball finished second to last in total defense and last against the pass in 2019. Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn...

Detroit Lions: 2020 Preseason Predictions and Preview

By Athlon Sports, 4 months 3 weeks ago
After a dismal 3-12-1 finish in his second season as head coach, Matt Patricia got a reprieve from ownership last winter. So did general manager Bob Quinn, who now finds himself on the hot seat along with the man he hired in 2018 with the promise of building a consistent winner. That hasn't happened, obviously. And while a roster overhaul and some key injuries are partly to blame —...
