Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears first half open thread

Join us for the first half of the Thanksgiving Day special.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions are sporting their classic throwback uniforms. The Chicago Bears are wearing some boring stuff. Detroit is down their top receiver and running back. Chicago is without their starting quarterback.

It’s Thanksgiving and Lions football is an absolute must, even if the team is clinging to the thinnest of playoff odds at 4-6.

The Bears won’t be an easy team to pull an upset against—even if they’re working on a short week. Less than two weeks ago, this Bears team took it to the Lions, and they haven’t slowed since. At 7-3, the Bears are not only eyeing an NFC North title, but a first-round bye isn’t out of the question.

But on Thanksgiving, hope springs eternal. The Lions have won four out of their last five on the holiday, and with an unknown quantity like Chase Daniel thrown into the mix, who knows what is going to happen?

So join us as the Lions kick off their second and final game against the Chicago Bears.
