Bears, Bills and Saints Win On Thanksgiving

Grace Higgins | November 29th, 2019

Another Turkey Day gives the NFL world plenty of food, and plenty of disappointing yearly Thanksgiving football from the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys, who routinely play on this day every year.

In the first game, quarterback Mitch Trubisky got back on track, throwing for 338 yards and three touchdowns, 140 of which went to receiver Anthony Miller. The Lions held the lead for most of the game, until two second half pass touchdowns by Trubisky outscored the Lions. With just two minutes remaining in the game, Trubisky found David Montgomery for a three-yard touchdown score that would give the Bears the lead for good.

The Bears improve to 6-6 and the Lions fall to 3-8-1, placing head coach Matt Patricia on the hot seat. Even with the win, the Bears head coach Matt Nagy is also on the hot seat. With the strength of the NFC, the Bears are almost certain to miss the playoffs. Entering the season, the team had championship aspirations.

The Bills keep surprising, as they beat the Cowboys,26-15, improving their record to 9-3, while the Cowboys fall to 6-6. The Bills held the advantage throughout the whole game, dominating the Cowboys all afternoon. Quarterback Josh Allen managed the game, passing for an efficient 231 yards and one touchdown, while also rushing for 43 yards and one touchdown. The Bills will more than likely be the fifth seed in the AFC playoffs, with the New England Patriots still in the driver seat of the AFC East.

The Cowboys are still in first place of the NFC East, but their schedule moving forward is brutal, whereas the Philadelphia Eagles schedule is a cakewalk. This could finally be the season that Jerry Jones makes coaching changes for the betterment of his organization. Prescott still passed for 355 yards and two touchdowns, but the offense was unable to capitalize on early opportunities. This is a team in danger of missing the playoffs.

In the late slot was a matchup between the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons fought and kept it close, but the Saints pulled away, winning 26-18 to improve to 10-2 on the season. The Falcons fall to 3-9 on the season and are eliminated from the playoffs. There’s no way this Saints team doesn’t reach the Super Bowl this season.
