The latest

Odell Beckham Jr. visits Cowboys Dec. 5, Giants to meet with WR sometime after Thanksgiving, according to reports | CBS Sport

The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys face off on Thanksgiving Day in an important NFC East showdown. Then they’ll do it again, off the field, as each will meet with star receiver Odell Beckham Jr., according to NFL Media.

Beckham will visit the Cowboys on Monday, Dec. 5, according to Jay Glazer. As for the Giants, they reportedly still haven’t found a date. According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Josina Anderson, OBJ will also meet with the Buffalo Bills, while talks with the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens continue to take place.

Beckham, 30, visited the Giants’ facility early last month to check on former teammate Sterling Shepard after Shepard’s ACL tear, but did not meet with anyone in management. This time the visit is planned, and what seemed like an unlikely reunion with the franchise that selected him 12th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft is now a possibility.

Kansas City Chiefs 34-14L us Angeles Ramp

This score assumes Bryce Perkins will start at quarterback for the Rams. If Matthew Stafford plays, give Los Angeles an extra touchdown. The quarterback situation for LA feels oddly irrelevant after seeing the defensive efforts of the mostly healthy Rams defense over the last two weeks. When Chris Olave and Juwan Johnson start cooking Jalen Ramsey, something is wrong.

EDITOR’S UPDATE: Rams head coach Sean McVay announced Wednesday that Stafford is in the league’s concussion protocol and will not play against the Chiefs.

Kansas City Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes is a cure-all. Too obvious, perhaps, but how could Chiefs fans be more grateful for anything other than No. 15, whose chemistry with Travis Kelce and unfettered creativity have Kansas City poised for another title run?

Pats’ Hunter Henry disputes overturned TD, says ‘hand was under ball’ | ESPN

“I think I caught it,” Henry said late Thursday night in the Patriots’ locker room. “He said it hit the ground. But I think my hand was under the ball. The hand was under the ball, hitting the ground, that’s kind of what made it bounce up.

“They called. Just have to live with it.”

On the third-and-goal play from the 6-yard line, quarterback Mac Jones fired a pass near the goal line to Henry, who was covered by Vikings defensive end Chandon Sullivan. Henry had both hands on the ball as he lunged towards the goal line.

Officials initially ruled it a touchdown before overturning 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-after attempt. Instead, they settled for a 25-yard field goal by Nick Folk. The Vikings then scored the final 10 points of the game.

Vikings WR Justin Jefferson passes Randy Moss for most receiving yards through first three seasons | NFL.com

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

The 23-year-old wideout passed Hall of Fame pass catcher Randy Moss on Thursday night for the most receiving yards through a player’s first three seasons. Jefferson entered Minnesota’s 33-26 win over the New England Patriots with 4,109 career yards and surpassed Moss’ three-year total (4,163) in the second quarter.

“It means a lot,” Jefferson told reporters after the game about the performance. “It means my path to the Hall of Fame is close. But I just want to 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.”

Bills LB Von Miller believed to have sprained knee vs. Lions, will miss 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 wheeled to the locker room.

The initial diagnosis on Miller’s injury is a knee sprain, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Miller will undergo an MRI, among other tests, to confirm the diagnosis Friday, but will miss some time, Rapoport added.

Head coach Sean McDermott told reporters in his postgame news conference that he did not have an update.

Miller suffered the injury with just over two minutes left in the first half when his leg got caught under a Detroit offensive lineman. He walked to the sideline under his own power, but was carted off after emerging from the medical tent.

Dallas 28, NY Giants 20

Cowboys

What to know: It could be 12 days that shape the Cowboys’ season. After losing to Green Bay in overtime on November 13, the Cowboys responded with two wins in four days by beating Minnesota and the New York Giants. They were nearly perfect against the Vikings and less so against the Giants, but they went 8-3 and swept their division rival. “It was a win,” said Dak Prescott, who bounced back from two first-half interceptions with two second-half touchdowns. “It was a win against a division opponent and sometimes all that matters is the win.”

Confident Chiefs are talking about early successes going into the halfway point 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 off a thrilling 30-27 victory over the division rival Los Angeles Chargers, and firmly in the driver’s seat in the AFC West, the Chiefs (8-2) are (briefly) stopping to smell the roses.

“It starts at the top,” Mahomes said when asked about the Chiefs’ success despite overwhelming roster turnover. “If you look at the organization, everyone is going to work with the mindset of how they can make themselves better to make this organization better,” he concluded.

Mahomes and Company are actually four games ahead of the Los Angeles Chargers in the division standings, positioned to win the AFC West for a seventh straight season.

“There were some unknowns because we hadn’t been through games with some of the guys,” head coach Andy Reid said Wednesday of his preseason concerns.

Among a flurry of offseason decisions, Kansas City decided to part ways with veteran defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, paving the way for a youth movement in the secondary.

“But as (the season) went on, I could see that we continued to improve and that we were going to be OK,” Reid said. Kansas City started four rookie defensive backs in Sunday’s win over Justin Herbert’s Chargers. And despite some early game runs, Kansas City held Los Angeles to just seven points in the second half.

“We have good players, a good locker room — coaches willing to work,” Reid said of his team’s championship culture. “It’s everybody. It’s not one thing we do. It’s everybody involved.”
