When we last met: November 27, 2008
If you don’t remember the last time the Lions faced the Titan it is likely because you’ve striken the event from your memory. It likely took years of therapy and cost you thousands of dollars but there really isn’t a price to steep to ensure the memory the last meeting between the Lions and Titans never returns. If that describes you, stop reading immediately. I’m about to remind you.
Thanksgiving Day 2008 was a very good day for the Tennessee Titans and a very bad day for the Detroit Lions. The game turned out to be the Titans’ 11th win of the season and the Lions’ 12th loss in what would become the league’s first 0-16 season. The stats and scoreboard were just as lopsided as one would expect. Chris Johnson and LenDale White each ran for two touchdowns and over 100 yards to help bring the Titans’ rushing total to 292 yards on the day. The Lions mustered just 26 yards on the ground. The Titans scored 35 points in the first half to take a 35-10 lead into the locker room. Four Rob Bironas field goals in the second half allowed the Titans to cruise to the 47-10 win. It is the worst loss the Lions have ever suffered on Thanksgiving Day.
