Thanksgiving Day football kicks off with a battle of two NFC North teams, as the Minnesota Vikings visit the Detroit Lions. With both teams sitting at 6-4, this game has huge implications, as the winner will be in sole possession of first place in the NFC North. This is the second meeting between the two NFC squads this season, as the Lions defeated the Vikings during Week 9 overtime game, 22-16.
Both the Lions and the Vikings have had up and down seasons. Detroit has been one of the most erratic teams in the NFL this year. After defeating the Indianapolis Colts during Week 1, the Lions lost three straight to the Titans, Packers, and Bears. However, they turned their season around with a 3 game winning streak from Week 5 to Week 7. They then lost to the Texans during Week 8, and are on a two-game winning streak since.
The Vikings season, while equally tumultuous, has played out slightly differently. Minnesota came into the season with Superbowl expectations, until starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater got injured. After dealing for former #1 overall pick Sam Bradford, the Vikings began their season 5-0 and looked like one of the best teams in the league. However, since that torrid start, the Vikings have gone 1-4.
With both teams difficult to predicate, a win over the other would go a long way for both of these teams. With first place in the division on the line, we expect an incredibly exciting game between the Vikings and Lions, so find out how to live stream it below!
