The Dallas Cowboys beat the Chicago Bears last night 41-28. Chicago scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to make it look respectable, but a 21-0 third quarter for Dallas essentially sealed this one.

The Cowboys are 8-4, but if the season ended today they would not be in the playoffs. After Thursday’s visit to Chicago, they go to Philadelphia, host Indianapolis, and finish at Washington.
The Detroit Lions have won two Thanksgiving games in a row, both in blowout fashion no less. After nine straight losses on Turkey Day, it is a welcome change for Lions fans.
