Chat during the 77th Thanksgiving Day classic.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

In what is sure to be the biggest game of the 2016 season thus far, the Detroit Lions are just minutes away from kicking off against the Minnesota Vikings in the 77th annual Thanksgiving Day Classic.

With both teams at 6-4, the stakes couldn’t be much higher for a Week 12 matchup. A win means sole possession of first place in the NFC North, and a loss means an uphill battle in a tight NFC playoff picture.

To get you ready for the game, we have a slew of reading material. Check it out here, and enjoy the game by chatting below. Go Lions and Happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy the game everyone, and I hope everyone out there has a happy holiday season with family and loved ones.
