For the cool price of $15.29, fans can purchase “The Blazin’ Apple Cocktail”. Per Darren Rovell of The Action Network, the drink is made up of cinnamon whiskey, vanilla vodka, apple cider and a donut hole garnish.
The Lions will host the Bills in the first of three Thanksgiving Thursday games (12:30 p.m. EST). The second game will see the Dallas Cowboys host the NFC East rival New York Giants at AT&T Stadium, and the night will conclude with the New England Patriots visiting the NFC North-leading Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium.
If you’re at the Lions game and you happen to crave a Thanksgiving-related snack? Ford Field is also offering a Turkey Leg (with stuffing and cranberry barbeque sauce) at the Goalpost Grill & Pizzeria.
The Lions’ tradition of playing on Thanksgiving Thursday started back in 1934. Then-owner George A. Richards came up with the idea, knowing that a football game on a holiday would increase fan attendance.
On Thanksgiving last year, the Lions fell 16-14 to the NFC North rival Chicago Bears. In fact, Detroit hasn’t won a Thanksgiving game since the 2016 season, when they narrowly defeated the Vikings 16-13 in a defensive slugfest.
The Bills’ Week 11 game against the Cleveland Browns was relocated from Highmark Stadium to Ford Field because of the snowstorm in the Buffalo area. The Bills defeated the Browns in their “home game” 31-23.
Since losing to the Miami Dolphins in Week 8 which dropped them to 1-6 on the year, the Lions have rallied for three straight victories. The playoffs are out of reach at this point, but Dan Campbell’s squad can at least embrace the chance to play spoiler when they host the likely playoff-bound Bills later today.
