The Detroit Lions are a Thanksgiving Day tradition dating back to 1934.

Q: Which NFL player set a (then) NFL rushing record with 273 yards
in this traditional game?
The date? November 25, 1976.


This Thanksgiving's game against the Green Bay Packers will mark the 64th edition of Detroit's Thanksgiving Day tradition. The annual event always brings out the best in Lions fans, and this year, Detroit will welcome its most frequent dinner guest to the table in the Green Bay Packers.

The series began with a 19-16 loss to the Chicago Bears on November, 29, 1934.

A total of 63 games have been played with the Lions owning a 32-29-2 edge over their opponents.
