Lions look to continue Thanksgiving Day feast vs. Vikings

(TSX / STATS) -- For a long time, the Detroit Lions regularly embarrassed themselves on Thanksgiving Day. Their annual tradition showcased how downtrodden the franchise had become.

Lately, though, the Lions have become unbeatable on the holiday stage. They have won four straight Thanksgiving Day games at Ford Field, helping them to make the playoffs in two of those seasons.

"Playing meaningful football on Thanksgiving is a whole lot of fun," quarterback Matthew Stafford said. "This year should be no different. Any time you win on Thanksgiving, it's a blast. The turkey tastes a whole lot better."
