The last time Dallas played Detroit was back in 2007, when the Lions were poised to make a playoff run for the first time in a long time. Detroit QB Jon Kitna (now Tony Romo's backup in Dallas) led the Lions to a 27-14 fourth quarter lead, but the 'Boys mounted a late comeback, stealing the game on Jason Witten's touchdown reception with 18 seconds left. The loss effectively ended Detroit's postseason hopes.
Now the Lions are looking for revenge. Fresh off back-to-back seasons in which they posted a miserable combined record of 2-30, Detroit has a new coach, a new general manager, and a new roster that includes exciting young stars like Calvin Johnson, Matt Stafford, and Ndamukong Suh. The Cowboys are 5-0 in the game before Thanksgiving since 2005.
