The Detroit Lions are no strangers to Thanksgiving Day games and this year, they are taking on an NFC North rival in the Chicago Bears. Both teams need a win to stay in the playoff race and CBS Sports Tracy Wolfson took some time to talk Jay Cutler and Matthew Stafford facing off at Ford Field on the big holiday.
The Detroit Lions played on Thanksgiving before 24 of the current NFL franchises even existed. The Lions’ first owner scheduled the inaugural game in 1934 to try and generate interest in the team.
Willie Young spent years chasing after Matthew Stafford in practices. As a fellow Lion, he never got to actually hit Stafford, of course.
The average secondary market price for Lions tickets on TiqIQ against the Bears this Thursday is currently $287.23.
The Chicago Bears have waived former Super Bowl MVP receiver Santonio Holmes.
Maybe Sunday night was the final straw for fans of Jay Cutler.
Things really aren’t going well for the Chicago Bears.
Starting off the season some people had written off the New England Patriots’ QB Tom Brady.
The Patriots put backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to finish the blowout when Houston sacked him for a huge loss when the game was already out of hand. Houston proceeded to do the same celebration as Tulloch, with the same result.
The 3-4 Bears aren’t the team we thought they would be.
