DETROIT – It was a long time coming, but the Detroit Lions are back to being winners on Thanksgiving Day.
The Lions snapped a nine-game losing streak in their traditional Thanksgiving home game, as well as a five-game skid against the Green Bay Packers with a dominating 40-10 victory on Thursday.
Matthew Stafford threw for 330 yards, Reggie Bush rushed for 117 and a score and Calvin Johnson grabbed six passes for 101 yards and a touchdown. It was the first time since 2006 that Detroit had a 300-yard passer, a 100-yard rusher and a 100-yard receiver in the same game.
Tom McCarthy and Rod Woodson called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
