The last time the Detroit Lions won one of their Thanksgiving Day games was in 2003, when the Internet was slower and Nickelback might have been slightly more popular than they are now (those two things are related, I'm sure). Detroit has lost seven straight Turkey Day games by an average margin of 22.9 points since the '03 win over Green Bay. But now, incredibly, the Lions (7-3) are decent. The Packers (10-0) might be better.
Nickelback, we can all agree, is still horrible. If you don't want to spend a single second of your Thanksgiving listening to their music, here's how you can watch Mayer Hawthorne's alternative halftime show.
Talk about the game here. And don't forget to baste.
