The Chicago Bears are going to try to reach the .500 mark when they face the Lions in the opening game of the Thanksgiving Day triple header.
The Detroit Lions are no strangers to Thanksgiving Day games and this year, they are taking on an NFC North rival in the Chicago Bears. Both teams need a win to stay in the playoff race and CBS Sports Tracy Wolfson took some time to talk Jay Cutler and Matthew Stafford facing off at Ford Field on the big holiday.
The Detroit Lions played on Thanksgiving before 24 of the current NFL franchises even existed. The Lions’ first owner scheduled the inaugural game in 1934 to try and generate interest in the team.

The Carolina Panthers are little bit beat up this week after the win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week one, but there is one important thing coming from this week’s injury list. Quarterback Cam Newton is on the list again, but it will be next to impossible to keep him out of the line-up this week versus the Detroit Lions.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers nine-year veteran safety Roman Harper knows all too well about what wide receiver Calvin Johnson can do to a defense. Harper was a member of the New Orleans Saints when Johnson caught 12 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns in a 2011 playoff game.
The Panthers have a chance to win 2 games in the month of September for the first time in the Rivera era on Sunday against Detroit. Here is the blue print to make it happen…..
