It’s Thanksgiving day and time to watch NFL Thanksgiving Game Texans vs Lions live stream. The Detroit Lions will take on the Houston Texans at 12:30 p.m. ET on Thursday at Ford Field, Detroit, Michigan.
The Houston Texans will kick today with a Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Detroit Lions. This matchup will be the first of three Thanksgiving games and is set to kick off at 12:30 p.m. ET on CBS. Houston will be strutting in after a victory while the Lions will be stumbling in from a defeat.
Houston Texans vs. Detroit Lions Game Preview:
Both the Houston Texans and the Detroit Lions are playing below average football this year as they match up in week 12 on Thanksgiving Day in the US. The Texans are a bit worse for the wear as they come in at 3-7. The team did just best the Patriots, but it’s not quite the accomplishment it would have been prior to the 2020 season. The Texans are hoping to regain Laremy Tunsil at left tackle after being out with an illness. Roderick Johnson filled in for Tunsil and could do so again if he doesn’t return in time.
Detroit is faring only slightly better at 4-6 but still sits at the bottom of the NFC North division with the Bears and Packers leading the group. If you’re a betting person, the Texans are favoured slightly, but that could shift as the game draws close.
All three Thanksgiving Day football games seem to be evenly matched, just in different ways. This first game will likely be close with less sloppiness than the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Football game that follows it in the afternoon.
