It’s Thanksgiving time, so that means the Detroit Lions will be hosting the holiday’s annual early Thursday NFL game.

The Lions welcome their NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings to Ford Field as the teams meet for the second time in three weeks.

Kickoff for the Week 12 NFL game is set for 12:30 p.m. Eastern and it will be televised by CBS. On the call with play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz will be analyst Phil Simms and sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson.

The Lions and Vikings are tied atop the division at 6-4. In the first game, Detroit went to Minnesota and pulled off a 22-16 overtime victory.

Right now, they are two teams trending in different directions.
