Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Like the rest of us, you’re here to eat until you’re on the verge of passing out, argue with your relatives, and watch some football. The Falcons don’t play until Sunday, but there’s three games on today, and we’ll give you the info you need to watch (and a place to discuss) each one.

First up, we have the Vikings and Lions, who are in a dogfight for the NFC North lead. Enjoy!

Vikings - Lions Week 12 info

Key Story Lines: The Vikings finally won a game after a massive slide. Can they can continue that momentum by beating the Lions? Will the Lions continue to get quality play out of Matthew Stafford? Will this game be watchable, unlike many Thanksgiving games featuring the Lions?
