Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears: Live score updates, highlights

Pride of Detroit

The Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears kick off the Thanksgiving Day slate of games that have become so integral to this wonderful holiday.

For Lions fans, it’s a chance to be grateful that we at least get this tradition every year, which means so much to generations of football fans in Detroit. For Bears fans, maybe they’re grateful to have this opportunity to get head coach Matt Nagy out of town for good. A loss to the 0-9-1 Lions would have to seal the deal for the struggling coach already in Year 4 of his reign.

For the rest of NFL fans watching, maybe it’s an opportunity to be thankful that your football team isn’t playing this poorly.

Either way, football is better than no football, and hopefully you’re spending the day watching a little football and spending more time with your loved ones.

If you’re skipping the football game, I can’t blame you, but I’ll be right here providing live updates of the game if you want to check in. Kickoff is at 12:30 p.m. ET.

First quarter

The Lions won the toss and deferred, giving Andy Dalton and the Bears the first crack at points. The Lions pass defense got off to a strong start as pass breakups by Alex Anzalone and Will Harris on the first drive forced a quick Bears punt.

The Lions offense got off to… an aggressive start? Goff connect with D’Andre Swift on three consecutive passes to start the game, but then he went downfield with his old pal Josh Reynolds. First, Goff found Reynolds for a 16-yard out route. A few plays later, then, he connected with Reynolds for a 39-yard touchdown and an early 7-0 Lions lead.
