1. Ohio State outlasts Michigan in double overtime– It was considered to be the game of the year and this one did NOT disappoint. This was all started and looking to be a defensive battle all around as both schools had two of the best defenses in the nation. Then came the second half and the offenses finally woke up. Michigan made some questionable decisions and Speight wasn’t 100 percent, you could definitely tell. Michigan had this game in the books until Ohio State fought back and sent the game into overtime. Then came double overtime and Ohio State scored to win the game and continue their winning streak over Michigan.
2. Cowboys win tenth straight– They entered Thanksgiving with nine straight wins which is already a franchise record. In came the Washington Redskins who have played some good football of their own as of late and were coming off a big win of Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. This would be the first team that has seen the dynamic rookie tandem of Prescott and Elliott. Dallas started fast and never looked back and they seem to look better and better as the weeks go along. With the win, they’ve now extended their winning streak to ten games and became the first team in the league double-digit victories.
3. Chiefs win a big game in Denver– The AFC West has been highly entertaining this year and with December around the corner, it will only get better. This game was flexed into the Sunday night slot and it didn’t disappoint. What started as a strong defensive showing turned into two teams lighting up the scoreboard in the second half and this was the best game of the season for Trevor Siemian. This one ended up going into overtime and Denver elected to kick a 62 yard field goal and missed it which gave Kansas City the ball and ran the clock down. Kansas City won the game on a Santos field goal that looked as if it was missed but it hit the crossbar and fell in.
4. Buccaneers stun Seattle– After all the talk of Seattle rolling and finally getting their offense back on track, saying they struggled on Sunday in Tampa is an understatement because they looked horrible. The offensive line, which hasn’t been the same since trading Unger gave up six sacks and the Seahawks offense only scored five points. Yes, you read that right. The Buccaneers are coming off two wins over two really good football teams. Kansas City in week 11 on the road and Arrowhead is a very tough place to play and yesterday over Seattle.
5. Raiders beat Panthers in a thriller– The Carolina Panthers… What a difference a year can make. Last year around this time, we were talking about how Cam was single-handedly slicing defenses apart. This year, not too much. They’ve lost more games in 16 more than they did all of 15. The Raiders are rolling right now and continued to do so with a big win over the Panthers.
