The traditional Thanksgiving games on Thursday (local time) brought the Buffalo Bills, Las Vegas Raiders and Chicago Bears victories to the National Football League (NFL). Most noticeable was the success of the Bills against the New Orleans Saints. The team around quarterback Josh Allen prevailed away 31: 6.
Playmaker Allen recorded four touchdowns, 260 thrown and 43 yards run, but also made two interceptions. The weakened Saints could only record their only points in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Trevor Siemian, who has lost all of his four games so far, posted 166 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

The game in Dallas, on the other hand, turned into a real crime thriller. In the end, the Raiders were able to prevail in the Cowboys after extra time with 36:33. The decisive field goal was achieved by kicker Daniel Carlson from 29 yards. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr threw 373 yards and a touchdown. However, 375 yards and two touchdowns from Dak Prescott were not enough for the Cowboys to win. Cowboys player Tony Pollard provided the highlight of the game with a kickoff return over 100 yards into the end zone.

The Lions, who play a home game every year on public holidays, were beaten by a field goal from Cairo Santos in the final second, losing 14:16 to Chicago. For Detroit, it’s the fifth consecutive bankruptcy on Thanksgiving and the tenth this year. The Lions remain the only NFL team that hasn’t won this season.
