A new tradition is born as the Detroit Lions host their first Thanksgiving at the University of Detroit Stadium. The game is also broadcast nationally on NBC radio. The game was vital in deciding the Western Division in the NFL, as the Bears entered 11-0 while the Lions were 10-1. Ultimately, Chicago would emerge victorious, 19-16, as Bill Hewitt caught a touchdown pass from Bronko Nagurski.
