Thanksgiving football is a special tradition in the NFL, and anyone that gets the chance to play in it considers it a big honour. With all of America watching from their television sets, the stakes feel a lot higher even if it’s two teams that aren’t in contention.

While the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears don’t seem to be challenging for a spot in the Super Bowl by any means, they did have the honour of competing in one of the three Turkey Bowls on Thursday.

It… uh… didn’t get off to a smooth start.



Christian Jones wants to defer, and he doesn’t care if you’ve already deferred!!!
