Odell Beckham Jr. To Visit Cowboys Dec. 5, Giants To Meet WR Sometime After Thanksgiving, According To Reports | CBS Sports
The New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys go head-to-head on Thanksgiving in a key NFC East showdown. After that, they’ll do it again, off the field, as they will each meet 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 have reportedly yet to set a date. According to CBS Sports NFL insider Josina Anderson, OBJ will also meet with the Buffalo Bills, as conversations with the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens continue.
Beckham, 30, paid a visit to the Giants facility early last month to check on former teammate Sterling Shepard after Shepard’s torn ACL, but hasn’t met anyone in management. This time the visit is scheduled 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 34-14Los Angeles RamSt
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 seems strangely inconsequential after seeing the defensive effort of the mostly healthy Rams defense over the past couple of weeks. When Chris Olave and Juwan Johnson start cooking Jalen Ramsey, something is wrong.
PUBLISHER UPDATE: Rams head coach Sean McVay announced Wednesday that Stafford is in league concussion protocol and will not play against the Chiefs.

Kansas City Chiefs
Patrick Mahomes is a lifesaver. Too obvious, perhaps, but how can Chiefs fans be more grateful for anything other than the No. 15, whose chemistry with Travis Kelce and deadpan creativity has Kansas City poised for yet another title race?

Pats’ Hunter Henry disputes overturned TD, says ‘hand was under ball’ | ESPN
“I think I got it,” Henry said late Thursday night in the Patriots locker room. “He Said he fell to the ground. But I think my hand was under the ball. The hand was under the ball, hitting the ground, that’s what made her jump to her feet.
“They called. I just have to live with it.
On third-and-goal from the 6-yard line, quarterback Mac Jones fired a pass near the goal line to Henry, which was covered by Vikings defensive back Chandon Sullivan. Henry had both hands on the ball as he hurtled towards the goal line.
Officials initially ruled it a touchdown, before overturning the call to an incomplete pass following a lengthy review.
A touchdown would have given the Patriots a 30-23 lead midway through the third quarter, assuming a successful point-for-point attempt. Instead, they settled for a 25-yard field goal by Nick Folk. The Vikings then scored the final 10 points of the game.

Justin Jefferson continues to make history, this time supplanting a Minnesota Vikings great in the record books.
The 23-year-old wideout passed Hall of Fame passer Randy Moss Thursday night for most receiving yards in a player’s first three seasons. Jefferson entered Minnesota’s 33–26 victory over the New England Patriots with 4,109 career rushing yards and broke Moss’ three-year total (4,163) in the second quarter.
“It means a lot,” Jefferson told reporters after the game of the result. “It means my Hall of Fame course is near. But I will keep working, doing whatever it takes to play 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 believed he dislocated knee against 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 taken to the locker room.
Miller’s initial injury diagnosis is a sprained knee, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport said. Miller will undergo an MRI, among other tests, to confirm the diagnosis on Friday, but he will lose time, Rapoport added.
Head coach Sean McDermott told reporters in his postgame press conference that he didn’t have an update.
Miller was injured with just over two minutes left in the first half when his leg became caught under a Detroit offensive lineman. He went to the sideline under his own power, but was carried away after emerging from the medical tent.

Dallas 28, New York Giants 20
What to know: These 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 defeating Minnesota and the New York Giants. They were near perfect against the Vikings and less so against the Giants, but went to 8-3 and swept their division rival. “It was a win,” said Dak Prescott, who rebounded 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 talk early successes entering the middle of the regular season
Yes, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid have heard all the criticism and concerns this offseason about how they would sustain a championship pedigree without Tyreek Hill et al.
Fresh off a thrilling 30-27 win over division rivals the Los Angeles Chargers, and firmly seated 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 turnover. “If you look at the organization, everyone comes to work with the mentality of how can they improve themselves to improve this organization,” he concluded.
Mahomes and Company are effectively four games ahead of the Los Angeles Chargers in division standings, positioned to win the AFC West for the seventh straight season.
“There were some unknowns because we hadn’t played some of the guys,” coach Andy Reid said Wednesday of his preseason concerns.
Amid a flurry of offseason decisions, Kansas City decided to part ways with veteran defenseman Tyrann Mathieu, paving the way for a youth movement into the secondary.
“But as (the season) went on, I could see that we kept getting better and we were going to be okay,” Reid said. Kansas City started four rookie defensemen in Sunday’s win against Justin Herbert’s Chargers. And despite some mistakes early in the game, Kansas City held Los Angeles to just seven points in the second half.
“We have good players, a good locker room – coaches who are willing to work,” Reid said of his team’s league culture. “They all are. It’s not something we’re doing. They are all involved.
