Bills vs Lions Highlights
Football fans are sure to be in for a Thanksgiving treat this game week.
The Buffalo Bills are Super Bowl contenders for good reason. They boast a fearsome roster of star talent capable of lighting up this Thursday night. Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs lead a great offensive skill group and are capable of running up points against anybody, as we saw in last year’s playoffs. They can also get after the quarterback, with new signing Von Miller fresh off a championship run with the Rams and ready to take his talents to a third appearance in the big game.
The Detroit Lions once again entertain America on Thanksgiving night and do so with more optimism and hope than they’ve had in the last few years. Coach Dan Campbell is a true player’s coach. Combined with passionate 2nd running back Jamaal Williams, they have all the characters in the locker room to galvanize them for what will be a tough test against the Bills.
The Lions’ record on Thanksgiving is 37-43-2, so, while they have all the experience, they don’t necessarily turn it into results on the field. The Bills are 4-5-1 in this game but boast two wins against Detroit in those matches. They last played in 2019 against the Cowboys, when they won 26-15.
If you are betting on NFL games, which way should you go? It seems a pretty safe bet to go with the Bills. While the Lions know this game well, the Bills are straight-up more talented and should have what it takes to win.
