Thanksgiving and Detroit Lions football go hand in hand, and this year they could be hosting the NFC North champs.

The Detroit Lions haven't played the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving in 20 years.  According to a report in the Sports Business Daily, the Vikings are the most likely opponent to face the Lions on the holiday this season.

Recently the Lions have played conference foes the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers on this date.

This opportunity to play the Vikings is an exciting one with the success that team has had with winning the NFC North and their star running back, Adrian Peterson.
