Texans vs. Lions: TV schedule, radio, live stream, where to watch
Here is how to watch to the Houston Texans in Week 12 vs. the Lions on Thanksgiving.
The Houston Texans begin Week 12 by facing the host Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, as this is the second time in franchise history that the Texans will be facing the Lions on the holiday. The first time these two teams met on Thanksgiving was in 2012 where the Texans won at Ford Field by a 34-31 overtime score.
Back then the starting quarterback for the Texans was Matt Schaub, and for the Lions it was Matthew Stafford, who is still the top quarterback for the Lions, as he’ll be the starter in the ’20 version of this game as well.
This season for Stafford has had ups-and-downs as he’s 13th in the league with 2,581 passing yards with 17 touchdowns (14th in the NFL) and seven interceptions (17th place). Stafford has played in 10 games this season, and has completed 62.8 percent of his passes. That is his lowest completion percentage since 2014 when it was 60.3 percent.
The secondary of the Houston Texans played well this past Sunday against the Patriots, maybe having their best game of the season. Facing Stafford on short rest will be an interesting watch for this team, and time will tell if the Houston Texans are able to stop Stafford and leave Week 12 with a win.

Though this game doesn’t have a team with a winning record as the Texans are 3-7 overall, and the Lions are 4-6, they can still put on a solid game. The most interesting part will be Deshaun Watson and if he can lead this team to victory again, or J.J. Watt as he was a pass deflecting machine this past Sunday with four passes defensed against Cam Newton and the Patriots.
Granted, overall team play might not be the top level we’ll see all weekend, but for the this matchup could be a competitive game. If the Texans can earn a second straight win, and their fourth win of the season, it could give them the momentum to finish strong and build for next season.
The announcers for this game will be Jim Nance and Tony Romo as this will be a national broadcast game.
