Thanksgiving kicks off with the Detroit Lions hosting the Green Bay Packers in a fascinating NFC North matchup that will define both teams' playoff future. Matthew Stafford hasn't been able to take advantage of soft games in the Lions' schedule, while Green Bay is hoping it can limp along until Aaron Roders returns from injury.
Game Date/Time and Location: Thursday, Nov. 28, 12:30 p.m. ET at Ford Field, Detroit, Mich.

More on the matchup: A lot has changed since the Lions lost to the Packers early in the season. Matthew Stafford and Reggie Bush were unable to make an impact, while Aaron Rodgers led his team to a 22-9 win. Green Bay is significantly weaker without Rodgers under center, but Matt Flynn is an unpredictable quarterback who played well in limited time. The game on Thanksgiving will be determined by whether Detroit can rebound after two disappointing losses to Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay.
