Lions' Agnew doesn't practice, likely out vs. Vikings

The Detroit Lions playing on Thanksgiving Day 2014

Reiff's presence as the bulwark protector of Case Keenum's blind side has set the tone for this vast improvement by the group, with rookie center Pat Elflein also manning a key role and the 13-year veteran Berger playing as well as ever. "Honestly, I've got way too much to think about for this week and I'm just trying to play my best football and help this team win games". The match will start at 12:30 p.m.

Teammate Stefon Diggs had 903 receiving yards last season and likely would have reached 1,000 had he not missed three games because of injury. The Vikings defense is a truly elite unit and the Lions cannot afford to blow key scoring opportunities in this game.

The Lions won't have their star return man for Thursday's Thanksgiving showdown with the Minnesota Vikings, but they do have plenty of options to replace him.

The Vikings are the better team overall, but the Matthew Stafford vs. Case Keenum matchup may tilt this one in Detroit's favor. They don't have the defense, and the Vikings would love to keep this low-scoring.

This time the Vikings will find a way to get it done, largely due to an improved offensive line and a Lion front seven that I believe will lose the battle in the trenches on Thursday.

The records look worse than the actual game. Dak Prescott can do his prayers because the tandem defensive formed of Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram could derail the season of the Cowboys. Running back Ezekiel Elliott is still suspended, but the Cowboys hope to get left tackle Tyron Smith back. Ezekiel Elliot is obviously out.

If you combined the best of the rosters of the other three AFC East teams, that conglomerate probably couldn't beat New England (8-2).


The Chargers, on the other hand, can now sneak into the playoffs.

"We just take these games one at a time", Caldwell said.

The WJR hosts, who call Wood "Mister President", asked him about his favorite kind of pie, about the Golden Tate bobbleheads that will go to the first 25,000 attendees to get in the building and rally towels that go to the first 55,000. Sean McDermott may actually be criticized more if Taylor leads the Bills to victory.

At times, past Thanksgiving day games have been somewhat lackluster, a lone bright spot in what becomes yet another downward trending season in Detroit. Keenum and the Vikings have increased their total yards each week and have put up more than 400 yards in wins over Washington and the L.A. Rams since their bye week. They've blown them all out, but they only have one win over a playoff contender and that's a Blake Bortles led team.

The Redskins have lost five of seven SU, capped by a fourth-quarter meltdown in last week's 34-31 loss in New Orleans as 9.5-point underdogs.

It's incredible that the Vikings have been able to run the ball as well as they have this season despite the loss of Dalvin Cook, especially with Mike Remmers recently sidelined with a concussion.

With what could be the divisional title hanging in the balance, tomorrow's game should provide us with plenty of excitement and some great football.
