Lions vs. Texans: Game time, TV schedule, odds & more

The Detroit Lions do battle with the Houston Texans on Thanksgiving.

Leon Halip

The Detroit Lions haven't won on Thanksgiving since they beat the Green Bay Packers way back in 2003. During this losing streak, the Lions have struggled to even keep games close. They have been dominated year in and year out since that 2003 victory, and many are predicting this will be the case again on Thursday with the 9-1 Houston Texans coming to town. If the Lions want that losing streak to end, they will have to play a near-perfect game against the Texans on Turkey Day.

Here's a look at the details for Thursday's game between the Lions and Texans:
