Detroit Lions and Houston Texans get the Thanksgiving NFL action underway at Ford Field. The Lions need to bounce back from a 20-0 defeat to the Carolina Panthers in Week 11, while the Texans won 27-20 against the New England Patriots last weekend.

Detroit Lions Form


The Lions suffered their first shutout loss since 2009 last week as they slipped to a 20-0 defeat to the Carolina Panthers on a day to forget. 

Coach Matt Patricia's position looks under severe threat after his side failed to register a single point against one of the NFL's worst defences in what was a sorry display.

Detroit sit at 4-6 for the season and are now bottom of the NFC North and with very little to play for other than pride.

Detroit plays host to the now traditional Thanksgiving clash at Ford Field, with the Lions looking to avoid a fourth successive defeat in the holiday home game. 

Detroit Lions Team News


Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford played against the Panthers despite doubts over his thumb injury, and eyes will be on just how he comes through the short turnaround for this key clash.

Detroit do get Kenny Golladay back to boost the offence, while rookie back De'Andre Swift is also available.

Houston Texans Form


The Texans feature on the Thanksgiving Day slate for the first time since 2012 when they defeated the Lions in overtime.

Houston coming into this fixture on the back of a 27-20 win over the New England Patriots to move to 3-7 for the season. They are 3-4 since sacking coach Bill O'Brien after an 0-4 start.

The win over the Patriots followed two victories over the Jacksonville Jaguars and things are starting to look a little brighter in the Texans camp.

Houston Texans Team News


Quarterback Deshaun Watson was huge against the Panthers, with 380 of the 399 yards all gained by him. Can he repeat that kind of performance on the big day?
