Detroit Lions Top 10 Thanksgiving Day plays [Video]

Sharing is caring!

It all started on Thanksgiving 1934 and though they may have lost to the Chicago Bears on that day, a Detroit Lions tradition was started. In fact, the Lions have played on Turkey Day every year since then, with the exception of the World War II-era of 1939-1944.

This year, the Lions will host the Houston Texans at Ford Field but there will be a much different feel as fans are not allowed in the stadium due to COVID-19.

That being said, as we prepare for the big game (in terms of tradition), let’s take a look back at the Lions’ Top 10 Thanksgiving plays.


Nation, what do you believe is the No. 1 Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day play of all-time?
