The Detroit Lions held a lead late in the fourth quarter on Thanksgiving.
But in true winless fashion, they blew it and the Chicago Bears took home a 16-14 victory.
Thanksgiving was spoiled in Detroit, not that many fans should have expected the team to win in the first place.
The Lions are now 0-10-1 and a glimpse at their schedule proves an 0-16-1 record is likely going to happen.

Trying To Find A Win
The Lions have gotten about as close as they can get to a win over the past three weeks.
First came the 16-16 tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers, followed by a 13-10 loss in Cleveland with Tim Boyle at quarterback.
Next up was the Thanksgiving loss.
So what lies ahead?
They face the Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Seattle Seahawks, and Green Bay Packers.
The Lions are obviously not favorites in any game they play this season.
But it is tough to even pick one of those six games where they could seal the upset.
The Falcons and Seahawks may be the two weakest opponents, but both of those games are on the road.

The game against Minnesota is interesting because it was a 19-17 final the first time the teams met up this year.
Yet once again, the Lions can’t close games.
The Vikings have also gotten much better since that Week 5 showdown.
Unfortunately, the Lions are on a path to 0-16-1.
Jared Goff and the offense are not doing enough to win, even when the defense has stepped up as of late.
And fans can forget about Boyle as being some kind of secret weapon.
At least this time around, the Lions have a tie on their record as they try to capitalize on the awful season by drafting a franchise cornerstone in 2022.
