Detroit seized first place in the NFC North with the impressive victory.
It was the Lions' first win on Thanksgiving since 2003. Moreover, it was arguably the most dominant performance by the Lions that I can recall in my lifetime, and I'm in my 40s.
With the win, the Lions are now 7-5 while the Packers fall to 5-6-1. The two teams split the season series. The Chicago Bears, who are balanced between these two at 6-5, will play on Sunday.
Here are some initial thoughts and takeaways from the game.
