NFL's Thanksgiving Tripleheader winners and failures

What a day of football the NFL provided with Thursday's Thanksgiving tripleheader - and maybe you recovered from your tryptophan coma in time to see all three games.


Micah Parsons:The legendary pass rusher for the Cowboys added two more sacks on Thursday. This was his eighth multi-sack game overall, tying Aldon Smith for the most in a player's first two seasons.

Josh Allen: The quarterback for Buffalo is still recovering from an elbow UCL injury, as shown by the fact that he only completed 24 of 42 passes on this particular day.

New York Jets: Despite all the difficulties they are facing in the wake of being swept by the Patriots and losing second-year quarterback Zach Wilson, New England's defeat to Minnesota propels 

Odell Beckham Jr.: Speculation regarding OBJ's future is at an all-time high as he continues to rehabilitate from the ruptured ACL he sustained in the first half of Super Bowl 56.


The Bills have played on Thanksgiving three out of the last four years, but none of those games have taken place in Orchard Park, New York. As if travelling by car weren't horrible enough

The Lions lost at Ford Field, dropping to 2-4 at home this year after snapping a three-game winning run that had been the longest for Detroit since 2017.

Sam Martin: On Thursday, the Bills' punter made a season-high four kicks. It was the first time this year that Buffalo had to punt after three straight possessions. Cool off, son.
