The new leaders in the NFC East: The Washington Football Team. LED BY COMEBACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR CANDIDATE, QB ALEX SMITH, THE WFT got the best of the Dallas Cowboys as they registered a 41-16 victory on Thanksgiving. This marks the first time Washington has swept Dallas since 2012. Rookie running back Antonio Gibson was an absolute monster, as he rushed 20 times for 115 yards and three touchdowns. Star wide receiver Terry McLaurin also played a major role in the victory, as he caught seven passes for 92 yards and also made a clutch tackle that saved what would have been a pick-six.
Washington’s defense registered what might be their best performance of the season, as they sacked Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton a total of three times, picked him off once for a touchdown, recovered an Ezekiel Elliott fumble in the third quarter and held the Cowboys to just 1 of 4 on fourth down attempts. It was a total team effort, and the end result is that they are now in the driver’s seat of the worst division in football.
Matthew Stafford continues to climb up the NFL record books, despite how poor the Detroit Lions have been around him over the years. Stafford has been the franchise quarterback in Detroit for 12 seasons, yet puts up impressive numbers despite the team going just 73-86-1 in his starts. For as depressing as the Lions have been, Stafford has thrived.
In the fourth quarter of Detroit’s 41-25 loss to the Houston Texans, Stafford passed Joe Montana on the all-time passing touchdown list with a 14-yard strike to Mohamed Sanu. Stafford threw the 274th touchdown pass of his career, passing Montana for 17th on the all-time list. The touchdown was Stafford’s 18th on Thanksgiving Day, tying Tony Romo for the most passing touchdowns on the holiday.
The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the Baltimore Ravens this past week, and it now has reportedly affected their best player. On Thursday night, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson tested positive for the coronavirus. The Ravens were scheduled to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night, but the league was forced to reschedule the matchup due to the Ravens’ COVID-19 outbreak. . The game as of now is scheduled for Sunday at 1:15 p.m. ET and it will remain on NBC and broadcast nationally.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, four more Ravens players and one more staff member have tested positive for COVID-19 — which should include Jackson. While the game against the Steelers has already been moved to Sunday, the chances of it being played are reportedly “diminishing quickly.”
Phil Mickelson and Charles Barkley will square off against Peyton Manning and Stephen Curry in a charity golf match on Friday, Nov. 27. The Match III will be held at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley, Arizona. The third rendition of “The Match” will get underway at 3 p.m. ET and the competition will be modified alternate-shot match play.
Manning and Curry are listed as the -165 favorites.
