Odell Beckham Jr. to visit Cowboys on Dec. 5, Giants to meet WR sometime after Thanksgiving, reports say | CBS Sports

The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys square off on Thanksgiving Day in a key NFC East showdown. Afterwards, they will do it again, off the field, as each is set to 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 still haven’t set a date yet. Per CBS Sports NFL Insider Josina Anderson, OBJ will also meet the Buffalo Bills, while conversations with the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens continue.

Beckham, 30, visited the Giants facility early last month to check on former teammate Sterling Shepard after Shepard’s ACL tear but did not meet anyone in management. This time around, 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 Angeles Ram 34-14Ls

This score assumes Bryce Perkins will start at quarterback for the Rams. If Matthew Stafford plays, give Los Angeles an extra touchdown. The Los Angeles quarterback’s situation seems oddly out of place after watching the defensive effort of the mostly healthy Rams defense over the past two weeks. When Chris Olave and Juwan Johnson start cooking Jalen Ramsey, something goes wrong.

EDITORIAL 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 panacea. Too obvious, perhaps, but how can Chiefs fans be more grateful for anything other than the No. 15, whose chemistry with Travis Kelce and unflappable creativity set Kansas City up for another title run?

Pats’ Hunter Henry disputes overruled TD, says ‘hand was under ball’ | ESPN

“I think I caught it,” Henry said late Thursday night in the Patriots locker room. “He said he hit the ground. But I think my hand was under the ball. The hand was under the ball, touching the ground, which is what made it jump.

“They made the call. I just have to live with it.

On the third-and-go play from the 6-yard line, quarterback Mac Jones threw a pass near the goal line to Henry, who was covered by Vikings defensive back Chandon Sullivan. Henry had both hands on the ball as he raced towards the goal line.

Officials initially ruled it a touchdown, before overturning the call as an incomplete pass after a lengthy review.

A touchdown would have given the Patriots a 30-23 lead midway through the third quarter, assuming a successful point attempt after. Instead, they settled for a 25-yard field goal by Nick Folk. The Vikings then scored the final 10 points of the game.

Bills LB Von Miller suspected of spraining knee against Lions, will run out of 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 rushed to the locker room.

The initial diagnosis of Miller’s injury is a sprained knee, reported NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport. Miller will undergo an MRI, among other tests, to confirm the diagnosis on Friday, but will miss some time, Rapoport added.

Head coach Sean McDermott told reporters at his post-game press conference that he didn’t have an update.

Miller suffered the injury with just over two minutes left in the first half when his leg was caught by a Detroit offensive lineman. He walked to the touchline on his own, but was swept away after exiting the medical tent.

Cowboys

What there is to know: It could be 12 days that shape the Cowboys season. After losing to Green Bay in overtime on Nov. 13, the Cowboys responded with two wins in four days by beating Minnesota and the New York Giants. They were near perfect against the Vikings and less so against the Giants, but they came 8-3 and swept their divisional 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 about their first successes halfway through 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 maintain a championship pedigree without Tyreek Hill and others.

Fresh off a thrilling 30-27 win over division rival Los Angeles Chargers and sitting well in the driver’s seat at 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 the overwhelming roster turnover. “If you look at the organization, everyone comes to work with the mindset of how they can improve to make this organization better,” he concluded.

Mahomes and Company are effectively four games ahead of the Los Angeles Chargers in the division standings, positioned to win AFC West for a seventh consecutive season.

“There were unknowns because we hadn’t played games with some of the guys,” head coach Andy Reid said Wednesday of his preseason concerns.

Amid a flurry of offseason decisions, Kansas City decided to part ways with veteran defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, paving the way for a youth movement in the secondary.

“But as (the season) went on, I could see we were continuing to improve and it would be fine,” Reid said. Kansas City launched four rookie defensive backs in Sunday’s win over Justin Herbert’s Chargers. And despite some early misses, Kansas City held Los Angeles to just seven points in the second half.

“We have good players, a good dressing room – coaches who are ready to work,” Reid said of his team’s championship culture. “It’s everyone. It’s not something we do. It’s everyone involved.
