The Minnesota Vikings take on the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on NFL Thanksgiving. Here’s all you need to watch online.
The Minnesota Vikings finally ended their horrendous four-game losing streak last week. It truly felt like that may never happen considering how they were playing as a whole unit. Yet it finally did and now they have the chance to take back the lead in the NFC North. To do that, though, they’ll have to pull off a big win on Thanksgiving. Minnesota travels to Ford Field on Thursday for the holiday game against the Detroit Lions.

Meanwhile, Matthew Stafford and the Lions have been flying by the seat of their pants in the 2016 season. While they have six wins, they haven’t played in a game decided by double-digits all year, win or lose. Their defense is getting a bit healthier, but isn’t the most formidable of units. Stafford and company need to find a way to attack the stout Vikings defense to get the win, their second of the year over Minny.
CBS will have the broadcast for this game on Thursday. Unfortunately, the Thanksgiving Day games will only be available to stream live through NFL Mobile for Verizon customers. However, you can stream the full replay after with NFL Game Pass with a paid subscription to the service.
