The Detroit Lions (4-6) are once again hosting their annual Thanksgiving Day game, and their opponent for Week 12 of the 2020 season is the Houston Texans (3-7).

The last time these two teams met on Thanksgiving Day was back in 2012, and the game was marred by one of the all-time blunders by then Lions’ head coach Jim Schwartz. If you want to take a trip down memory lane, we recapped the game in an article earlier this year.
