    ....to let the Lions play the Colts on Thanksgiving??? Ok, some say more people would watch if it was the Colts because they are a more well known team. But I think more people would like to have seen a Texans/Lions game which would have been a little bit closer that 41-9.

    Side note: Why was Manning benched in this game after having a huge lead but not against us????

    i will say this, total points become a tiebreaker when 2 division teams are tied for the lead in the division, and have split the season series. but thats the only reason i can think of.

    The Lions pissed off the NFL gods at some point, and have been paying for 5 decades.

    He was benched after 6 TD passes with time remainging in the 3rd quarter. He didn't throw 6 against us and it was spread more throughout the entire game so they didn't get up really big until the 4th quarter.
