The 10-1 Tennessee Titans will face the 0-11 Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving. The Lions, a turkey-day football staple, have struggled mightily this season. Despite a solid season so far from young gun Calvin Johnson (48 catches for 905 yards, 18.9 avg per, 8 tds) the Lions have been plagued by injuries. Quarterback John Kitna’s season ended early, and second-string QB went down with a thumb injury, and the previously-retired Daunte Culpepper was ineffective as a replacement. To add insult to injury, Culpepper’s replacement Drew Stanton left the last Lions game with a concussion.
Despite losing their last game, Tennessee has lived up to the name of Titans this season. The Titans have bested the Jaguars (twice), Vikings, Ravens, Colts, Packers, and have only lost to the steaking New York Jets. Veteran QB Kerry Collins has has helped lead Tennessee to their best start in team history. The Titans are currently tied with the New York Giants for the best record in the NFL at 10-1.
