Sam Bradford threw his third interception of the season at the worst time in the Vikings’ Thanksgiving Day loss in Detroit. Bradford was sharp for most of the day and finished 31-of-37 for 224 yards, no touchdowns and the 1 pick without his favorite target Stefon Diggs who was out with a knee injury. The Vikings, who fell to 6-5 on the season, host the Cowboys on Thursday night.

Kenny Stills started and caught 3 passes for 72 yards and a touchdown as the Dolphins beat the 49ers for their sixth-straight win. Damien Williams rushed once for 7 yards and added 2 receptions for 11 yards, as Miami improved to 7-4 on the season.

Kenny with the spin move:

Jermaine Gresham found the end zone for the second-straight week in the Cardinals loss in Atlanta. Gresh finished with 5 receptions, 35 yards and a touchdown on a season-high 10 targets.

Tony Jefferson came up with 7 tackles and a sack for the Cardinals defense and continues to add to his potential Pro Bowl season.

DeMarco Murray was held to his second-lowest rushing total of the season in a Titans win at Soldier Field. It was also only the third time this year Murray failed to find the end zone, finishing with 17 carries for 43 yards and 5 receptions for a team-high 41 yards.

Sterling Shepard had zero receptions on zero targets for the first time in his rookie season, but did rush once for 22 yards in the Giants win in Cleveland. Linebacker Dominique Alexander recovered a fumble for the Browns in the same game. Center Gabe Ikard didn’t play, but he and Dom caught up for a boss ‘horns down moment with their former teammate after the game.

Gerald McCoy grabbed 2 tackles including 1 for loss and added a sack for the Bucs in a home win against the Seahawks. McCoy and the Tampa Bay defense held the Seahawks to a laughable score of five points on the afternoon.

Defensive end Geneo Grissom came up with 2 tackles on special teams as the Patriots beat the Jets on the road.

Raiders defensive tackle Stacy McGee started and registered 1 tackle in a wild win against the Panthers.

Corey Nelson defended 1 pass for the Broncos in a thrilling overtime home loss against Kansas City. Long snapper James Winchester recovered a crucial fourth-quarter fumble for the Chiefs who improved to 8-3 on the season.
