The Lions, the only winless team left in the NFL at 0-9-1, will host the Chicago Bears (3-7) at 12:30 p.m. at Ford Field in the home team’s annual Thanksgiving game. The Lions have lost four straight on the holiday, and 13 of 17.

One year ago, fans had a lot to be thankful for: After suffering a 41-25 spanking at the hands of the Houston Texans, the nightmare Matt Patricia-Bob Quinn era came to an end.

This year, the Lions are still searching for their first win under head coach Dan Campbell and general manager Brad Holmes. They are coming off a 13-10 loss in Cleveland, but might have starting quarterback Jared Goff back for Thursday’s game. Tim Boyle started in his place against the Browns due to Goff’s strained oblique suffered during the 16-16 tie in Pittsburgh on Nov. 14.
