DETROIT Turkey legs and an Ndamukong Suh foot Thanksgiving traditions.
A year ago, Suh the controversial defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions was in the spotlight when he stomped on Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith during the annual Thanksgiving Day game at Ford Field. It led to a two-game suspension.
This time, Suh kicked Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in...
Houston's Justin Forsett scored on an 81-yard touchdown run in the third quarter Thursday against the Detroit Lions, even though replays clearly showed his knee touching the ground near midfield.
It appeared Detroit coach Jim Schwartz helped the touchdown stand by throwing his challenge flag.
The TD counted and Detroit was called for unsportsmanlike conduct. A Lions spokesman...
Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan faces a tough task Thursday in trying to stop Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. “He is a special player,” said Ryan via The Dallas Morning News. “That’s why they traded half a team to get him. Obviously, he’s a tremendous athlete and they say he is a hell of a kid. I don’t like him, but I know he is very...
As the Cowboys navigate past the 10 game barrier in their season and in to the stretch drive, we now have enough data to begin to learn about this team based on what they do well and more importantly, it seems, what they don't do well at all.
We know that this team has the fewest 10 play drives in the NFL. Of the Cowboys 112 drives, only 11 have lasted 10 plays. That is lower...
Cowboys receiver Miles Austin has left the Thanksgiving Day game against Washington because of a right hip strain, and cornerback Orlando Scandrick injured his left forearm.

I’ve said it a bunch of times this year, but every year, one team goes from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. It’s looked like a shaky prediction as times this year, especially since every single playoff team from last year is 5-5 or better right now, except one (Saints and Bengals are both 5-5, so they’re still technically candidates). The...
Cowboys halfback Felix Jones missed practice on Tuesday because of a sore knee.Fantasy Spin:He was originally slated to be the team's starter Thursday against Washington but now his availability is somewhat in question. Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner both saw first team reps in practice on Tuesday. They'll probably split carries Thursday if Jones can't play.
Wide receiver Titus Young will be inactive for the Detroit Lions' Thanksgiving Day home game against the Houston Texans after being sent home from the team's facility Monday. Young was benched for the team's final three plays during Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers, and head coach Jim Schwartz said the second-year wide receiver's actions during the game...
Bill Ford Jr. needs to step in and take the reins of the Detroit Lions.
The Thanksgiving holiday reminds us all to reflect on our blessings while enjoying a delightful feast of fatty foods, begrudging the seat at the kiddie table and avoiding that uncle who spits while he talks. It’s enough to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
But this great American tradition wouldn’t be complete without a little trash talk and tackling. (And we’re not...
