Lions get squashed, fall to 0-12


Lions get squashed, fall to 0-12
The hapless Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks had little to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Day. The Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys saw to that.


The winless Lions, who have made Thanksgiving Day Football an NFL staple, have been playing on turkey day since the Great Depression -- 69 games over 74 years. And they've never looked as bad as they did Thursday, losing to the once-beaten Tennessee Titans 47-10, their biggest Thanksgiving margin of defeat.

In what has become a familiar refrain during Detroit's ignominious 0-12 start, defensive tackle Shaun Cody said of the blowout, "We got embarrassed."

Adding insult to injury, the Lions were booed off Ford Field. Asked if their crushing victory proved that the Titans were as good as their 11-1 record, cornerback Nick Harper said, "No, because people are going to say, 'It was just Detroit.'"

Detroit has not won on Thanksgiving since 2003, while the Cowboys, the NFL's other turkey day tradition, have won three in a row after their 34-9 thumping of the Seahawks in the final Thanksgiving Day game at Texas Stadium. The Cowboys will move into their new stadium next season.

Dallas quarterback Tony Romo, playing for the third time since missing three games with a broken right pinkie, passed for 331 yards and three touchdowns for the Cowboys (8-4), who added to coach Mike Holmgren's woes in his final season with the Seahawks (2-10).

The Cowboys are 3-0 since Romo's return, but their four remaining opponents -- the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles on the road and the New York Giants and Baltimore Ravens at home -- have a combined record of 30-13-1, so getting to the playoffs will be anything but easy.

"It's time to put your head down and go forward," Romo said, "because every week will be a tough, grind-it-out great defensive team that we're going against.

"It'll be a challenge for us to get in the playoffs, but we feel very confident in our ability to go out and win Football games."
