Odell Beckham Jr. To visit the Cowboys on Dec. 5, the Giants meet WR sometime after Thanksgiving, reports | CBS Sports
The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys face off on Thanksgiving Day in a major showdown across the NFC East. Then, they’ll do it again, off the field, as they’re each set to meet up with star receiver Odell Beckham Jr., according to NFL Media.
Beckham will visit the Cowboys on Monday, December 5, according to Jay Glazer. As for the Giants, they still have to make a date. According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Josina Anderson, OBJ will also meet with the Buffalo Bills, while talks continue with the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens.
Beckham, 30, paid a visit to the Giants’ facility early last month to check on former teammate Sterling Shepherd after Shepherd tore his anterior cruciate ligament, but didn’t meet anyone in management. This time, the visit was planned, and what seemed like an unlikely reunion with the franchise that picked him 12th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft is now a possibility.

Kansas City Chiefs 34-14L OS Angeles RAMs
This score assumes that Bryce Perkins will start at quarterback for the Rams. If Matthew Stafford plays, give Los Angeles an extra touchdown. Los Angeles’ quarterback status seems strangely irrelevant after watching the defensive effort from a healthy Rams defense over the past two weeks. When Chris Olave and Juwan Johnson start cooking Jalen Ramsey, something isn’t right.
Editor update: Rams head coach Sean McVay announced Wednesday that Stafford is under the league’s concussion protocol and will not play against the Chiefs.

Kansas City Chiefs
Patrick Mahomes is a treat for all. Too obvious, perhaps, but how could Chiefs fans be more grateful to anyone other than the No. 15 seed, who Kansas City is poised to battle for the title with Travis Kelsey and her unfazed creativity?

Pats’ catcher “Hunter Henry” flipped on the TD, saying “Hand was under the ball.” | ESPN
“I think I picked it up,” Henry said late Thursday night in the Patriots locker room. He said it fell to the ground. But I think my hand was under the ball. The hand was under the ball, with it hitting the ground, and that made it jump.
“They made the call. I just have to live with it.”
On a third-and-goal play from the 6-yard line, quarterback Mack Jones released a pass near the goal line to Henry, who was covered by Vikings’ linebacker Chandon Sullivan. Henry had his hands on the ball as he raced towards the goal line.
The officials initially ruled it a touchdown, before rescinding the call to an incomplete pass after a lengthy review.
A touchdown would have given the Patriots a 30-23 lead midway through the third quarter, assuming a successful point-by-point attempt. Instead, they settled for a 25-yard field goal by Nick Faulk. Then the Vikings scored their last 10 points in the game.
Vikings WR Justin Jefferson passes Randy Moss for most receiving yards over the first three seasons | NFL.com
Justin Jefferson continues to make history, this time replacing a great Minnesota Vikings member in the record books.
The 23-year-old passed Hall of Fame pass catcher Randy Moss Thursday night for the most receiving yards during a player’s first three seasons. Jefferson entered Minnesota’s 33-26 win over the New England Patriots with 4,109 career yards and beat Moss’ three-year total (4,163) in the second quarter.
“It means a lot,” Jefferson told reporters after the achievement game. “It means my path to the Hall of Fame is close. But I will keep working, and do whatever it takes to make plays for this team. I love this team. I would do anything for it. When the ball is in the air, it’s mine.”
Bills LB Von Miller thinks he has a sprained knee vs. the Lions, and he’ll miss out on time | NFL.com
Bills linebacker Von Miller suffered a knee injury in Thursday’s 28-25 win over the Lions and was ruled out after being moved to the locker room.
Ian Rapoport reports that the initial diagnosis of Miller’s injury was a sprained knee. Rapoport added that Miller will undergo an MRI, among other tests, to confirm the diagnosis on Friday, but he will miss some time.
Head coach Sean McDermott told reporters at a post-game press conference that he had no update.
Miller suffered the injury with just over two minutes left in the first half when his leg got caught under Detroit’s offensive line. He walked on the sidelines under his power, but was pushed back after he exited the medical tent.

Dallas 28, New York Giants 20
what do you know: This may be the 12 days that make up cowboy season. After losing to Green Bay in overtime on November 13, the Cowboys responded with two wins in four days with wins over the Minnesota and New York Giants. They were nearly perfect against the Vikings and less so against the Giants, but went 8-3 and swept their divisional rivals. “It was a victory,” said Dak Prescott, who bounced back two interceptions in the first half and twice in the second half. “It was a win over a class opponent and sometimes all that matters is winning.”

Confident Chiefs talk about early successes going back to half of the regular season
Yes, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid have heard all the criticisms and concerns this season about how they can maintain championship pedigree without Terek Hill and others.
After a thrilling 30-27 victory over the rival Los Angeles Chargers, and sitting firmly in the AFC West driver’s seat, the 8-2 Chiefs stopped (briefly) to smell the roses.
“It starts at the top,” Mahomes said when asked about the success of Congressional Chairs despite the massive staff turnover. “If you look at the organization, everyone is going to be working with the mindset of how can they improve themselves to make this organization even better,” he concluded.
Mahomes & Co. lead the Los Angeles Chargers by four games in the A-League standings, and are in first place in winning the AFC West Championship for the seventh consecutive season.
“There were some unknowns because we didn’t get to play with some of the players,” coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday of his pre-season concerns.
Among a series of off-the-record decisions, Kansas City decided to part ways with veteran defensive back Teran Mathew, paving the way for the youth move in the secondary.
“But as (the season) went on, I could see that we kept getting better and that we were going to be fine,” Reed said. Kansas City made four rookie defensive appearances in Sunday’s win over the Justin Herbert Chargers. And despite a few lapses early in the game, Kansas City held Los Angeles to just seven points in the second half.
“We’ve got good players, a good locker room – coaches willing to work,” Reed said of his team’s championship culture. “It’s everyone. It’s not one thing we do. Everyone is involved.”
