There is a ritual and a heritage in every society. And there is something special about these moments that unfold each year that makes us feel alive and redeemed.
The Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day is one of those American sports rituals. Yes, Lions often struggle to stay in contention in November. But they were the ones who helped tie Thanksgiving to football, long before the cowboys muscular in the late afternoon window or a made-for-television show on Thanksgiving night. They deserve their place on this blessed day.

And to help you cash in, here are the six questions for Thanksgiving Day with choices for each.
How many total combined touchdowns will QBs have?
0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5+.
The big question about this is: who will be the two quarters? Justin Champs was listed as questionable with a rib injury Tuesday night for the Bears. This would mean Andy dalton returns to starting quarterback for Matt Nagy. The main starting quarter of the Lions, Jared goff, is questionable with an oblique injury, but Detroit head coach Dan Campbell has indicated Goff could give it a go.
In other words, this is a low number. Prediction: 2 TDs.
Which team will have the longest reception and how many yards will it be?
Bears, Lions or Tie, with ranges from 1 to 56+.
In addition to Fields’ injury, there is the questionable status of Allen Robinson, who has a hamstring problem and did not participate on Tuesday. Dalton’s longest pass this year is 60 yards to Darnell mooney. Goff’s longest pass this year is 63 yards to running back D’Andre Swift. Prediction: Lions, 31-35.
Which team will have the highest kicking average and what will that average be?
Bears, Lions or Tie, with ranges from 0 to 55 years and over.
Lions punter Jack Fox is averaging 49 yards per punt. The Bears have Pat O’Donnell, who is averaging 46 yards per punt but has seen that average drop to 42.1 in the past five games. Prediction: Lions, 51-52.
Which team will do the longest field goal and how long will it take?
Bears, Lions or Tie with ranges 0 to 54 and more.
Carlos Santos has been formidable for Nagy and the Bears since joining, logging in this year on 13 of 15 goals and hitting 4 of 6 from over 40 yards. Aldrick Rojas was picked up by Detroit last week and made his only attempt, a meter 43, in the loss to Cleveland. Prediction: Bears, 46-47 yards.
Which team will have the longest touchdown and how long will it take?
Bears, Lions or Tie, with ranges from 1 to 61 and more.
With so much uncertainty over Fields and Robinson, it almost feels like you have to take the Lions in this category. Swift is the type of runner who breaks free in the running or passing game, and TJ Hockenson has seven catches over 20 yards. It must mean something. Prediction: Lions, 31-35 yards.
Which team will win and by how many points?
Bears, Lions or Tie, with ranges from 1 to 17 years and over.
The Lions didn’t win, but they weren’t completely at a loss. They have suffered different types of defeats, which makes you realize that they are not a historically horrible team.
Too many injuries in Chicago a short week and the Lions are expected to win on Turkey Day after losing the last four. Detroit wins. Prediction: Lions by 3-4 points.
