"I think this may be one of, if not the, biggest-attended Thanksgiving Day games in recent Detroit Lions history". Keenum isn't carrying the Vikings - he's thrown five interceptions over the last four weeks, including at least one in each game - but at least the defense hasn't had to be ideal.
Thankfully, it doesn't look like the Vikings will be missing many starters this week in a game where Minnesota will look to avenge a loss earlier in the season and get a big win to a team in contention for the NFC North crown. Second, if the Lions win Thursday, it would give Detroit the same record as Los Angeles. "It wasn't the very first time a professional team played on the day, but what Richards did that was different was he took it nationwide", said Harvey. With Aaron Rodgers out for the season in Green Bay, Detroit actually has its best chance in quite some time to cruise its way to a divisional championship. "We had 16, 13 twice and kicked a 60-yard field goal once". They'll play the team that is behind them in the standings and the last team they lost to: the Detroit Lions. A Detroit win would not only pull it within a game of the lead but also clinch the tiebreaker with the Vikings.
It's not a stretch to call this game a "must-win" situation for both teams if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Washington, in explaining the Lions' road success on Sunday - they're 4-1 on the road and just 2-3 at home - said defense travels, and that's something the Lions will be up against Thursday. In their last two meetings, the Vikings have turned the ball over four times and failed to force any turnovers.
He now ranks second in 20-plus-yard completions, while Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo's defence has given up the league's third-most pass plays of 20-plus yards. He's getting the ball to the right place. "We're not anxious about ramifications". He's not afraid. He's going to pull the trigger and play like that. While the Lions' defense doesn't have the solid numbers across the board that the Vikings' does, it does rank fourth in takeaways, while Minnesota ranks 20th. We're not anxious about all of the build up and things of that nature.
