The rematch has lost some of its luster with Kansas City dropping its last two games and Denver's collapse in New England after beating the Chiefs. Only three games involve two teams with winning marks: Denver (9-2) at Kansas City (9-2); Then San Diego torched what had been the league's top defense when linebackers and sacks threats Tamba Hali and Justin Houston left with injuries.
The Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys won their annual US Thanksgiving home games Thursday to seize NFL division leads while reigning Super Bowl champion Baltimore moved into a playoff position. Detroit's Matthew Stafford tossed three touchdown passes and the Lions won on Thanksgiving for the first time since 2003, beating Green Bay 40-10 to grab the NFC North lead at 7-5.
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Running back DeMarco Murray rushed for a career-high three touchdowns, and the Dallas Cowboys inched back in front in the NFC East by rallying to beat the Oakland Raiders 31-24 on Thanksgiving afternoon at AT&T Stadium. The Cowboys (7-5) won their second game in a row to move back into sole possession of first place in the division, at least for the time being. Philadelphia (6-5) gets its chance to pull back into first on Sunday. Murray carried 17 times for a modest 63 yards, but his scores were significant as the Cowboys moved two games above .500 for the first time this season.

New York Giants (4-7) at Washington Redskins (3-8)
Any momentum the Dallas Cowboys earned from a dramatic victory over a division rival won't mean much if they can't build on it going forward. Back above .500 and tied atop the NFC East, the Cowboys seem to have a good chance to keep heading in the right direction Thursday when they host an Oakland Raiders team which has struggled on the road. Having had two weeks to recover from an embarrassing 49-17 loss at New Orleans on Nov. 10, Dallas (6-5) pulled out a 24-21 road victory Sunday over a New York Giants team which had won four straight. The Cowboys blew a 15-point lead in the second half but won on Dan Bailey's 35-yard field goal as time expired.
