Lyles and Harris are two of the most recent well-known Indiana prep stars to make it to the NBA.

“It was a big goal and I felt a lot of emotion there. After a tough start, it’s definitely nice to get one like that,” said Bennett, who has three goals and eight points in his last seven games.

The 21-year-old, who has been playing alongside rookie Mark Jankowski and a combination of Jaromir Jagr and Garnet Hathaway, has been especially hot on home ice with points in each of his last seven home games (four goals, six assists) at the Scotiabank Saddledome. That streak began on Nov. 9 after he failed to pick up a point in the season’s first 15 games.

Lyles (Arsenal Tech High School) and Harris (Hamilton Southeastern High School) made what will be their only trip back to Indianapolis this season. Harris (Michigan State) and Lyles (Kentucky) were highly sought after recruits during their time in high school with Lyles winning a state championship his senior year. On Sunday night the two combined for 46 points.

The Chargers earned the luxury of resting and watching Sunday. That defense, and Rivers’ 434 yards passing — all of which allowed them to mask a nightmare of a day in the kicking game — gave them a nice cushion with their play Thursday.

They know that what they’re attempting is rare, and there’s no chance they don’t know exactly how rare by now. The only team in NFL history to go from an 0-4 start to a playoff berth is … the 1992 San Diego Chargers, of Junior Seau and Stan Humphries and a top-five defense, who caught and passed the Chiefs to win the West.

The Dolphins wore their 1972 uniforms, and for the first time in four prime-time appearances this season, they rose to the occasion. Miami tried to turn the game into a laugher in the third quarter when Landry caught a touchdown pass and then set the ball down in the end zone and pumped it repeatedly — a reference to the Patriots’ Deflategate scandal.

Taylor completed 19 of 29 passes for 183 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions.

The NFL’s 2017 Thanksgiving slate ended with a real turkey, a poorly played game that saw Washington beat the New York Giants, 20-10. Washington improved to 5-6, and the Giants fell to 2-9, further continuing their lost season under head coach Ben McAdoo. Kirk Cousins made the difference with 242 yards and two touchdowns on 19-of-31 passing.

The win was mostly thanks to a suffocating performance by the Buffalo defense that held Kareem Hunt to just 17 rushing yards on 11 attempts and iced the game with an interception on Alex Smith in the final minutes. But it was helped by the return of Tyrod Taylor to the lineup after the veteran was benched in Week 11.

In his return as a starter, He also added 27 rushing yards. It wasn’t a huge day statistically, but it was efficient and mistake-free, which was exactly what the Bills needed to get a much-needed win.

Maualuga had 23 tackles for the Dolphins this season in six games, four of them being starts.

Mike Davis, RB, Seattle Seahawks: Davis had some big moments during Monday night’s contest against Atlanta, but exited during the Seahawks’ opening drive of the second half. After Davis was examined on the sideline, the team declared him out for the duration of the game due to a groin injury.

More important to Roseman is that his Eagles can virtually clinch the NFC East after just 10 games with a win Sunday night at Dallas, which would put them four games ahead of the Cowboys with six to play.

The Eagles will catch the Cowboys in a vulnerable position this week due to the absence of Ezekiel Elliott. Even if All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith returns from his groin injury, he may be limited. After Smith’s replacements gave up six sacks to the Falcons’ Adrian Clayborn alone last week, the Cowboys better hope Smith returns against a solid Eagles defensive line.

But, in a twist of fate, it was Ball’s decision to eschew traditional sneaker deals and go the Big Baller Brand route that made Fox the top target for sneaker companies among the 2017 draft class.

The Dolphins (4-5) likely will turn to either Mike Hull or Chase Allen at middle linebacker for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Washington Redskins have reached the point where they probably cannot afford to lose any more players. They definitely cannot afford to lose another game.

After watching a stirring win dissolve into a crushing overtime defeat Sunday at New Orleans, the Redskins had to forget it fast as they prepare to host their first-ever Thanksgiving Day game, a division contest Thursday night against the New York Giants.steelers_037

Seahawks running back Mike Davis has been ruled out with a groin injury.

The Jets, apparently, didn’t have enough Ryan Fitzpatrick in their lives, because here he comes again, with the potential to screw up their season again. Fitzpatrick replaces Jameis Winston this week, and he won’t have the suspended Mike Evans to help. It’s a chance to get the rest of the Bucs weapons to step up … but also a chance for the Jets defense to tee off on him. The Jets getting to .500 with six weeks left is even more of a boost to Todd Bowles’ coach of the year candidacy, not to mention his case for a new contract.

Atlanta picks up three first downs but is stopped at the Seattle 46 when Taylor Gabriel is brought down well short of the marker on a screen pass. Atlanta punts and Seattle will start its drive on its 10.

Field goal, Seattle. Wilson runs for 13 yards on third down to move the chains and Seattle advances all the way to the Atlanta 16 two plays later. The Seahawks are then called for a holding penalty and their drive stalls. Blair Walsh kicks another field goal to cut Seattle’s deficit to 31-23.

JaMychal Green, Memphis Grizzlies (7.1): Green isn’t yet seeing heavy minutes for Memphis as he reintegrates after a lingering injury, but he should soon be a fixture of the rotation atop a thin depth chart at power forward for the Grizzlies. As evidence he can provide fantasy-relevant production when called on, Green delivered more than 11 points and more than nine boards per 36 minutes last season.

This week’s fantasy blocking breakdown reviews why Oakland’s passing game could get a boost in the near future, how the Saints’ rush defense can turn any opponent’s running backs into starting caliber fantasy prospects and whether fantasy managers will be able to trust Arizona’s veteran running back down the stretch.steelers_007
