San Francisco 49ers

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.

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

it’s about getting the ball in the hands of the playmakers as quickly as possible.

These jerseys are atrocious. The Thunder have had the worst uniforms in the league since their inception. When was the last time you saw something orange and blue and thought, “I want that.” Also, when was the last time you saw actual thunder and thought, “That looked orange and blue.” This team is in desperate need of a re-design. And the obvious solution here is to give Russell Westbrook creative control of the uniforms.

Kelvin Benjamin, knee, and Devin Funchess, hamstring, Carolina Panthers, 1 p.m. ET: Both Panthers receivers have been on the injury report in recent weeks, but both appear to be in good shape heading into the matchup against the Buccaneers.

To that end, Thomas returned to limited practice Thursday and a full session Friday. His removal from the pregame injury report is a big comfort to fantasy owners who won’t have to worry about his status entering Sunday’s game against the Bears.

You know the biggest shame of this day? Because the NFL schedules cross-conference games once every four years, barring a Super Bowl meeting, Wilson and Watson won’t face each other again until they play in Houston … in 2021. So keep this game on the DVR. Cue it up on some ugly February or March day. Maybe you’ll yell at the TV the same way you did Sunday.

We start, though, with Newton’s pivotal calendar year, and how the Panthers’ vision of a slightly altered version of their franchise QB—a more sustainable version—has come to life. And yes, Newton’s March surgery is a big part of this, but the plan was set into motion well before then, and it’s actually one you’ve seen before.

“The model is Pittsburgh,” Rivera said, referencing Ben Roethlisberger’s growth a half-decade ago. “Look what they do with [Le’Veon] Bell, look what they do with [Antonio] Brown, it’s about getting the ball in the hands of the playmakers as quickly as possible. And you gotta put those guys in position.

Switch a smaller guy onto him, and Griffin brutalizes fools in the post.

Hell, a lot of starting power forwards today are converted wings Griffin can smash anyway. The bigger test comes when teams switch the Griffin-Jordan dance, and slide their centers onto him. (Some opponents will start games that way as a bulwark against Griffin’s post game.)

Break up the Magic! Though if they keep this up, the front office might not! A big win over San Antonio on Friday turned heads, and Aaron Gordon has established himself as a contender for Most Improved Player — and toss Evan Fournier into the mix, too. One notable difference this season? A middle-of-the-pack pace team last season, Orlando ranks a zippy third in possessions per game this season.

A foundation of Elliott’s appeal was to call his accuser’s credibility into question, according to Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The woman’s false statement to police about the events of the night of July 22, 2016, as well as her request that her friend lie to police on her behalf will surely be a part of it.

I don’t believe any ownership effort has the 24 votes necessary to force out Goodell. I also don’t believe there are 24 votes to slash Goodell’s compensation right now. And however some owners feel about Goodell, it’s going to be hard in an era of huge NFL wealth to slash his compensation … particularly when the contract extension is going to cover the next labor negotiations, which could be hugely rancorous.

In the 1970s, Khan developed a new bumper that revolutionized the auto industry. He then bought Flex-N-Gate, an auto parts manufacturer, and turned it into a billion-dollar business. His net worth is now $7.1 billion, which makes him, according to Forbes, the 72nd richest American. He used that wealth to buy two sports teams—the Jacksonville Jaguars and London soccer club Fulham FC—and that’s what’s brought him to town.

The Chiefs rank second in the NFL in total offense

The Lions have run the ball seven times inside the opponent’s 5-yard line this season. Dwayne Washington (2.0 OTD) has handled four of those carries but has failed to score a touchdown. Incredibly, Washington has appeared in only three games and is responsible for four of the team’s five carries inside the 5 during those weeks (Ameer Abdullah handled the other).

Houston (3-3). Scott Hanson on NFL RedZone said just what I was thinking as the Texans wiped out Cleveland 33-17 on Sunday. “The Texans’ offense looks as impressive as any in football now,” he said. Last four games: 33, 57, 34 and 33 points, and Deshaun Watson is making everyone in southeast Texas forget the pain of losing J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus.

Bryan, who is consistently discussing his desire to wrestle again, mentioned in a Facebook video with his wife Brie Bella that he is growing out his hair for a hair versus mask match in Mexico.

The Chiefs rank second in the NFL in total offense, and while Andy Reid’s getting much deserved credit, no one should overlook the contributions of coordinator Matt Nagy. He’s earned a reputation as a great creative mind, and he’s clearly had serious input in what’s become the league’s most innovative offense. So he could be a head coaching candidate to watch when we get to December and January.

There are some decent signs for Bortles, though, particularly that he has thrown for 571 yards and two scores while completing more than two-thirds of his attempts during the Jaguars’ past two games.

“Especially visiting teams, a lot of the owners come up to me and say, ‘Hey, who are you going to play next year? We’d love to come.’ ”

The NFLPA filed with this court for a preliminary injunction.

There was an evidentiary hearing on Oct. 30 involving both sides. Judge Katherine Polk Failla issued her decision that evening, and she ruled against Elliott.

Sunday: Buffalo (on the road) 23, Atlanta 17 … Rams (on the road) 35, Dallas 20 … Carolina (on the road) 33, New England 30. In the outlier game: Houston (at home) 57, Tennessee 14. Fifty-seven on a Dick LeBeau team, with a rookie quarterback doing the damage.

“Nobody saw a lot of these coming,” McVay said over the phone from Texas on Sunday afternoon. “But that’s the NFL every year, isn’t it?”

Now would be a good time to remind you of my baseball genius. Preseason NL MVP pick: Kyle Schwarber, Cubs. Batted .211. Hitting so badly early in the season he got sent to Triple-A for a couple of weeks.

The lawsuit hinges on testimony from Elliott’s appeal hearing that revealed the NFL director of investigations, Kia Roberts, concluded that the accuser “was not credible in her allegations of abuse” and recommended no suspension for Elliott. That was not was not included the league’s investigative report. Further, Roberts was barred by Lisa Friel,canucks_009 Special Counsel for Investigations for the NFL, from the meeting with Roger Goodell where they arrived at the decision to suspend Elliott.

Roberts was the only person who interviewed both Elliott and his accuser.

Kyle Simpson is the head basketball coach at Southport High in Indianapolis (though he’s originally from small-town Milan, Indiana, he notes with pride, home of the 1954 high school state champs). Simpson’s father coached in Indiana. His grandfather did, too. “The high school coaches that I’ve talked to,” he says, “they wanted somebody that understood the landscape of Indiana high school basketball.”
