NFL Thanksgiving TV schedule: Vikings, Cowboys headline holiday games”

Rivers threw for 434 yards and three touchdowns in his first Thanksgiving game in his 14th season and the Chargers beat the fading Cowboys 28-6 on Thursday. Our triple-header kicks off with the Minnesota Vikings' trip to Detroit to take on the Lions.

Kickoff time is 11:30 Thursday morning on WNAX.

The Vikings are the more ailing team of the two, with a number of key pieces listed on the injury report.

Decker and Griffen locked horns in some fierce battles last season, but Griffen took advantage of the second-year tackle's absence earlier in Week 4, wreaking havoc on Stafford and finishing the game with a sack. Kai Forbath then kicked the extra point for a 13-0 lead.

Matthew Stafford has been many things for the Detroit Lions over his roller-coaster career, but the one constant has been his ability to drop jaws by dropping dimes in the direst circumstances.

So in March of 2014, Jacksonville traded the quarterback to San Francisco for a sixth-round draft choice.

Yes, the Vikings were feeling pretty good then, and they did throughout most of the game.

"Don't count us out just yet", he said.

The Lions moved the chains through the air in Week 4, as Stafford completed 3 of 5 passes for 58 yards early in the game. Over 400 yards and five touchdowns certainly didn't hurt.

"I think the rule is great that they changed that you get to have celebrations like that, " Keenum said. Meanwhile, the Vikings rolled up 136 yards on the ground, including 84 by Latavius Murray.

That would set up this 58-yard Prater bomb stunning a now sedated Minnesota crowd. Thielen had eight catches for 89 yards to get to 1,005.

Well, Detroit actually held a 10 point lead early in the fourth quarter. A 19-yard touchdown scramble by Kirk Cousins with just over a minute left to play gave the Redskins a confident 17-13 edge. Stafford was intercepted on a desperation fourth-down pass by cornerback Xavier Rhodes with 2:50 left. Connecting on deep ball after deep ball, Megatron ravaged the Cowboys secondary at will but Detroit still faced a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

The Vikings drove 80 yards on 14 plays during their first possession. Davis breaks off Sitton with one last chance to drag Howard down from behind, but can't.

Only four players remain from the days Gabbert was in Jacksonville - quarterback Chad Henne, defensive tackle Abry Jones, tight end Marcedes Lewis and linebacker Paul Posluszny.

They were back in business when Lions running back Ameer Abdullah fumbled a handoff at his 39 and defensive end Danielle Hunter recovered.

"Yeah, that was the team that drafted me", Gabbert said.

Prater's 32-yard field goal put the Lions on the board.

Detroit got those points back in just 27 seconds with a three-play, 75-yard drive.

Howard takes the handoff, and the interior of the Bears line does a good job blocking on the first level.

Lions' inactives:DE Dwight Freeney, CB Jamal Agnew, RB Dwayne Washington, RB Tion Green, OL Don Barclay, OL Emmett Cleary and DE Jeremiah Valoaga. Minnesota OT Mike Remmers (concussion) missed his third consecutive game. On the flip side, their hosts the Dallas Cowboys (5-5) have been stuffed 64-16 in the past two weeks.

Minnesota has the second-best run defense in the NFL, while the Lions have the fifth-worst rushing attack.
