Thanksgiving Day: Vikings v. Lions Picks and Predictions, Inactives and Turkey Leg Awards
Getting benched worked for Matthew Stafford. It fired up the former Georgia Bulldog
Stafford will walk away today with a Turkey Leg

Today it is all about the Turkey Leg.  So at Draft Diamonds I thought we would bring our readers our Turkey Day Predictions for the Lions v. Vikings as well as the others.  Since the Lions and Vikings are early we will start there and continue on. 

Lions are hard to play on Thanksgiving. It is their day when it comes to the NFL.  The Vikings are going to try to stop the Lions, but they will not be successful.  I am calling it, Lions win and they win BIG. 

Lions 42 – Vikings 21

Here are today’s inactives for the Lions v. Vikings game:


  • LB DeAndre Levy, RB Justin Forsett, OL Joe Dahl, OL Cornelius Lucas, DL Khyri Thornton, S Don Carey, QB Jake Rudock.


  • QB Taylor Heinicke, WR Stefon Diggs, CB Terence Newman, CB Marcus Sherels, OT Rashod Hill, DT Sharrif Floyd, DE Stephen Weatherly

With Stefon Diggs hurt and out, the Vikings will need the others to step up, and I don’t see that happening against the fired up Lions today.  The Lions wide outs Golden Tate and Marvin Jones along with quarterback Matthew Stafford walk away with the Turkey Leg.
