The Detroit Lions have hosted a Thanksgiving game every year since 1934 and this year they hosted the Bills.

The Dallas quarterback threw for 260 yards, two touchdown and two picks, while the receiver and the running back had 92 and 92 yards, respectively.

The Vikings were back at home this week to host their first Thanksgiving game in their 62-year history, and they were able to bounce back from their loss to the Cowboys with a big performance from quarterback Kirk Cousin.

The Pats went into the fourth quarter with a 26-23 lead, but Greg Joseph kicked a field goal to tie the game.

The Vikings now have a 9-2 record and improved it to 5-5 with a touchdown pass from Cousins to Adam Thielen in the fourth quarter.
