The first NFL game of the Turkey Day slate will have a homely feel to it.
The Lions, fresh off their third consecutive win, host yet another Thanksgiving Day game. This one will feature a familiar foe. Well, sort of.
The Bills took their talents to Detroit for Week 11, opting for the comforts of a domed Ford Field as opposed to the torrent of snow that descended on Highmark Stadium and defeating the Browns in the process.
The warm conditions seem to give rise to a show of offensive fireworks, something that both sides would be comfortable with given their explosive attacks. Expect a high-scoring affair to kick off all your Thanksgiving Day festivities.
