Family, food and football. Three of the best things in life came together on Thanksgiving with the NFL’s tripleheader slate on Thursday. As everyone came together to watch football, the NFL delivered a satisfying day we’ll never forget.
Sports fans sat down with their families expecting the Chicago Bears-Detroit Lions clash to be the green bean casserole of the NFL’s Thanksgiving menu. Instead, it delivered plenty of entertainment and only increased everyone’s appetite for more great football with a close contest that came down to the final minute.
The matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys served as the side dish for Thursday’s slate. The Bills catered some exciting plays and incredible performances for everyone to enjoy. Meanwhile, the Cowboys fell flat in front of another national audience and left everyone wondering about their future.
NFL fans then received quite the dessert to end Thursday night. A battle between the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons, two rivals with an extensive history and plenty of hatred between both fan bases, served as a fitting end to the NFL action.
Here are the winners and losers from an entertaining and filling slate of games from the NFL’s Thanksgiving action.
