Odell Beckham Jr. Visits Cowboys Dec. 5, Giants Meets With WR Sometime After Thanksgiving, Reports | CBS sports
The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys face off in a key NFC East showdown on Thanksgiving Day. After that, they’ll do so again, off the field, as everyone will be meeting up with star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., according to NFL Media.
According to Jay Glazer, Beckham will visit the Cowboys on Monday, December 5th. As for the Giants, they are reportedly yet to set 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, visited the Giants facility early last month to check on former teammate Sterling Shepard after Shepard’s cruciate ligament rupture, but did not meet with anyone in management. This time the visit is scheduled, and what seemed like an unlikely reunion with the franchise that picked him 12th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft is now possible.

Kansas City bosses 34-14L Os Angeles Rams
This score assumes Bryce Perkins will start as quarterback for the Rams. If Matthew Stafford plays, give Los Angeles an extra touchdown. The quarterback situation for LA feels oddly irrelevant after watching the defensive efforts of the mostly healthy Rams defense over the past two weeks. When Chris Olave and Juwan Johnson start cooking Jalen Ramsey, something goes wrong.
EDITOR’S UPDATE: Rams head coach Sean McVay announced Wednesday that Stafford is on the league’s concussion protocol and will not play the Chiefs.

Kansas City bosses
Patrick Mahomes is a panacea. Perhaps too obvious, but what else can Chiefs fans be more grateful for than No. 15, whose chemistry with Travis Kelce and unimpressed creativity set Kansas City up for another title run?

Pats’ Hunter Henry Denies TD, Says ‘Hand Was Under Ball’ | ESPN
“I think I got it,” Henry said in the Patriots locker room late Thursday night. “He said it hit the ground. But I think my hand was under the ball. The hand was under the ball when it hit the ground, which made it bounce.
“You called. I just have to live with it.”
On third-and-goal play from the 6-yard line, quarterback Mac Jones fired a pass near the goal line at Henry, who was covered by Vikings defenseman Chandon Sullivan. Henry had both hands on the ball as he lunged for the goal line.
Officials initially ruled it was a touchdown before lifting the call for 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-after-try. Instead, they opted for a 25-yard field goal from Nick Folk. The Vikings then scored the last 10 points of the game.

Justin Jefferson continues to make history, this time edging out a great Minnesota Vikings in the record books.

“It means a lot,” Jefferson told reporters after the game’s performance. “That means I’m close to entering the Hall of Fame. But I’ll just keep working and do whatever it takes to play for this team. i love this team I would do anything for that. When the ball is in the air, it’s mine.”
Bill’s LB Von Miller, thought to have sprained knee against Lions, will miss time | NFL.com
Bill’s linebacker Von Miller suffered a knee injury in Thursday’s 28-25 win over the Lions and was ruled out after being taken to the locker room.
The initial diagnosis of Miller’s injury is a sprained knee, reported NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport. Miller will have an MRI, among other tests, to confirm the diagnosis on Friday but will miss some time, Rapoport added.
Head coach Sean McDermott told reporters in his post-game press conference that he didn’t have an update.
Miller suffered the injury just over two minutes from time in the first half when his leg was caught by an offensive Detroit lineman. He walked to the sidelines under his own power but was carted away after exiting the medical tent.

Dallas 28, New York Giants 20
What you should know: These could be 12 days that will mark the Cowboys’ season. After losing to Green Bay in overtime on November 13, the Cowboys responded with two wins in four days by defeating Minnesota and the New York Giants. They were almost perfect against the Vikings and less so against the Giants, but they came up 8-3 and swept their division rivals. “It was a win,” said Dak Prescott, who was recovering from two first-half interceptions with two second-half touchdowns. “It was a win against a division opponent and sometimes only the win counts.”

Confident Chiefs speak of early successes in the second half of the regular season
Yes, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid heard all the criticism and concerns this offseason about how they would maintain a championship pedigree without Tyreek Hill and others.
Fresh from a thrilling 30-27 win over division rivals Los Angeles Chargers and firmly in the driver’s seat of the AFC West, the Chiefs (8-2) stop (briefly) to smell the roses.
“It starts at the top,” Mahomes said when asked about the Chiefs’ success despite overwhelming roster changes. “If you look at the organization, everyone comes to work with an attitude of how they can improve themselves to make this organization better,” he concluded.
Mahomes and Company is an effective four games ahead of the Los Angeles Chargers in division standings and in position to win the AFC West for a seventh straight season.
“There were some unknowns because we hadn’t seen games with some of the guys,” head coach Andy Reid said Wednesday of his preseason concerns.
Amid a series of offseason decisions, Kansas City decided to part ways with veteran defenseman Tyrant Mathieu, clearing the way for a junior high school youth movement.
“But as the season progressed I could see that we were still improving and that we were going to be fine,” Reid said. Kansas City started with four rookie defensemen in Sunday’s win over Justin Herbert’s Chargers. And despite a few early-game dropouts, Kansas City held Los Angeles to just seven points in the second half.
“We have good players, a good dressing room – coaches who are willing to work,” Reid said of his team’s championship culture. “It’s everyone. It’s not a thing we do. Everyone is involved.”
