I’m not sure why they waited until this afternoon to announce it, but the Lions will be wearing their throwbacks for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Day game against the Packers.
That’s a big upgrade from last year, when the Lions wore their godawful grey alternates on Turkey Day. The year before that, they wore their primary home combo. The last time they wore the throwbacks on Thanksgiving was in 2020, against the Texans. (Obviously, they should always wear the retro threads on Thanksgiving.)
The Lions/Packers game is scheduled for 12:30pm Eastern. Like all of tomorrow’s games, it will feature a strong John Madden component.
