Week 1 is obviously huge in the NFL because it's the start of the season, and Week 17 is when playoff spots can be decided and the season ends for many teams, but in the United States no day of the regular season compares from a football perspective to Thanksgiving, which is this Thursday.
Dallas has several edges, but that doesn't mean it will cover the Cowboys vs. Bills spread during the 2019 Thanksgiving Day NFL schedule.
Trubisky connected with Allen Robinson for a 10-yard touchdown on the first drive of the game.
It's nearly as if the defense is deliberately trying to sabotage Jeff Driskel. This season Detroit has been on the receiving finish of some shut losses whereas Chicago has struggled to remain within the playoff hunt.
This is the second year in a row that these two teams will meet on Thanksgiving. The good thing for Nagy and his squad is they'll meet a Lions team that is without quarterback Matthew Stafford, has lost four consecutive games and has at least as many issues as the Bears. This is their first game this season with a total this high.
Trubisky completed 29 of 38 passes for 338 yards, three scores and an interception in the 24-20 win at Ford Field. In Driskel's three starts, Golladay hasn't caught more than four balls in a game and has just one touchdown over those three games. Add to that that Ryan may now have a limited Julio Jones (shoulder). The country duo of the Brothers Osborne were slated to perform. Rushing - Frank Gore (541 yds). The pass rush can rattle quarterbacks, and Robert Quinn (9.5 sacks) and DeMarcus Lawrence (4.5) should be able to get to Bills quarterback Josh Allen, who has been brought down 23 times. Bo Scarbrough picked up 83 yards on 21 carries for the Lions. "You just have to move on and keep getting better from here".
Cowboys team leaders: Passing - Dak Prescott (3,433 yds).
The Dallas Cowboys might be a good team, but they also might not be. But as quarterback Drew Brees faces off with a Falcons team that he's passed for 8,511 yards against (the most of any QB against Atlanta), it's wide receiver Michael Thomas who's the MVP candidate on this New Orleans team. Then consider that the Saints Defense ranks 11th in passing DVOA, combined with the fact that they've allowed just one opposing quarterback to throw for over 280 yards since Week 3.
The Saints had a narrow escape against the Panthers at home on the heels of being routed by the Falcons at home and rolling past the Bucs on the road. However, he's coming off an very bad showing in a loss to Tampa Bay in which he completed just 50 percent of his throws, had no touchdowns and an interception.
