No league does Thanksgiving like the NFL.
Thursday will feature three games to kick off Week 12, including the Bears traveling to face the Lions, the Raiders visiting “Jerry World” to take on the Cowboys, and the Bills and Saints squaring off in the Superdome.
Here are the top plays from Thursday’s matchups:
Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions
Is that legal?
The game began with a confusing sequence before a play was even called. After Detroit deferred the opening coin flip, Chicago tried deferring back to the original deferrer.
A Unique coin-flip sequence took place between the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions where the Lions won the toss and deferred to the Bears who tried deferring back.

Don’t count Detroit out. In seven plays, Goff & Co. went 79 yards to paydirt late in the third. T.J. Hockenson reeled in the go-ahead TD reception, which helped put the Lions up 14-13.
