The Buffalo Bills (7-3) and Detroit Lions (4-6) begin Week 12 with a Thanksgiving matinee at Ford Field. Both teams are coming off key victories last week and look to build momentum Thursday.
The Lions are on a three-game winning streak and have a chance to secure an elusive Thanksgiving victory. Detroit owns a 37-43-2 record on the holiday but hasn’t won since 2016.
The Bills will play their second consecutive game in Detroit. Last week, the Bills defeated the Cleveland Browns after a massive snowstorm hit the Buffalo area and moved the game.
The Bills have the No. 2 scoring offense this season. The Lions are allowing an NFL-worst 28.2 points per game.

Josh Allen and the Bills haven’t practiced much in the last week due to snowstorms in Western New York and a short week before this game, but they’re far superior to the Lions. It’ll be a close one, but Detroit’s three-game win streak is ending at home.
