DETROIT -- Case Keenum was scrambling, dancing, slicing and dicing up the Detroit Lions defense in the first half on Thanksgiving at Ford Field. He was doing what quarterbacks of past weeks have done with their legs, except his arm was the most impressive part of the show. The Minnesota Vikings quarterback -- the one who stepped in for Sam Bradford, who had stepped in for Teddy Bridgewater -- showed exactly why the Vikings have yet to switch back to the recovered Bridgewater.
DETROIT -- The game had been building for weeks as the biggest of the season for the Detroit Lions. And the fans were ready when it finally got here. A total of 66,613 people packed into Ford Field on Thanksgiving to watch the Lions take on the NFC North-leading Minnesota Vikings. It's Detroit's largest crowd on Thanksgiving in history and its second-highest total in any game all-time. Lions home games on Thanksgivings are a major Detroit tradition, of course, but this year's had much higher stakes.
DETROIT -- With the clock ticking down, chance after chance after chance already missed, Darius Slay turned to Nevin Lawson and told him exactly what he was going to try when the Minnesota Vikings tried a field goal to ice the game away. "I'm about to block it," Slay told his fellow Detroit Lions cornerback. "You block it, I'm going to scoop and score," Lawson said back. Then Detroit's No. 1 cornerback darted across the line, blocked the kick and Lawson did as he was told.
The best #Lions quotes, such as this from Darius Slay:
"I'm playing all 4 quarters, but I ain't the only person on the team. We all have to feel the same way. I'm an energy guy, so I'm turned up all day, every day. Some guys might be a little different."
@LIONSCJ11 And if you could read subsequent tweets, you'd see I said exactly that. The better teams make the defining plays. And no, the Lions didn't miss them because they weren't using their white backups.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
