Detroit on Thanksgiving Day
November 25, 2012 Leave a comment
For the last nine years, the Detroit Lions have lost all of their Thanksgiving Day football games.
But that’s not all their fault. The NFL always schedules them to play vastly superior teams on that day.
From 2004 to now the Lions have averaged five wins a season and on Thanksgiving Day the NFL schedules them to play teams that average eleven wins a season. That is crazy!
In 2012 they played the Houston Texans who were the second overall ranked team.
In 2011 they played the 15-1 Green Bay Packers.
In 2010 they played the 14-2 New England Patriots.
I don’t understand why the NFL doesn’t give Detroit a break and have them play the Browns one year.
The NFL is determined to make it a holiday tradition that on Thanksgiving the Lions get stuffed like a turkey.
