Ron Glover’s Thanksgiving Day Pick: Houston Texans (9-1) vs. Detroit Lions (4-6): Will the Texans come better prepared for the Lions?Posted in Blogroll on November 22nd, 2012 by Ron Glover
Andre Johnson’s career day ended with this overtime scamper to victory.
The Houston Texans escaped a monumental letdown Sunday with a 43-37 overtime victory against the 1-9 Jacksonville Jaguars. Matt Schaub had the second best passing yardage day in history, throwing for 527 yards and five touchdowns. An otherwise stingy Texans defense struggled to contain Jacksonville’s offense — one of the NFL’s worst.
The Detroit Lions have all but accepted the role of spoiler after Sunday’s loss to their division rival Green Bay Packers 24-20. Turnovers (4) killed any chance that the Lions had of overtaking the surging Packers.
The Lions have lost eight consecutive Thanksgiving day games dating back to 2003.
