Today's NFL Thanksgiving Day triple-header gets going in Detroit with the Lions hosting the Chicago Bears.

The 7-3 Bears have been a surprise team this season. They lead the NFC North and are looking to put more distance between themselves and the field with a win today.

The Lions are 4-6 and scuffling, but they might have one advantage this afternoon. The Bears are missing starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, and backup Chase Daniel will be making his first start in four years.

Despite Trubisky's absence, ESPN's FPI favors the Bears.

The latest projection gives Chicago a 63.5 percent chance of winning.

ESPN prediction for Bears-Lions.

Bears-Lions gets underway at 12:30 p.m. ET. CBS will broadcast the action.

The Cowboys and Redskins follow with the middle game of three today. Tonight's finale is Falcons-Saints.
