NFL Thanksgiving game: Bills beat Lions at death;  Cowboys and Vikings win |  NFL

Tyler Bass made a game-tying, 45-yard field goal with two seconds left to lift the Buffalo Bills to a 28-25 victory over the Detroit Lions on Thursday for their second win in five days at Ford Field.

Josh Allen set up the game-winning kick by starting the drive with a 36-yard pass to Stefon Diggs and running twice for 12 yards before Bass’s game-winning kick.

Buffalo (8-3) has won two straight to move a half game ahead of Miami in the AFC East.

The Bills were back in Detroit after the NFL moved its previous home game against Cleveland to Ford Field due to a winter storm in western New York. They had to work harder for the win on Thursday than they did against the Browns.

Allen threw a neat five-yard touchdown pass to Diggs with 2:40 left to make it 25-22, but Bass missed the extra point. The Lions then converted on fourth-and-one from midfield with Amon-Ra St Brown’s final drive to set up Michael Badgley’s game-tying, 51-yard field goal with 23 seconds left. Badgley had missed a 29-yard field goal late in the third and Jared Goff had a sack for a safety in the same quarter, and those mistakes proved costly.

Allen had one pass and one rushing touchdown in the first half, finishing 24 of 42 for 253 yards to more than make up for his 11th interception of the season.

Detroit (4-7) missed an opportunity to win four straight games for the first time since 2016 and lost a franchise-record sixth straight game on Thanksgiving.

Goff was 23 of 37 for 240 yards with a one-yard touchdown pass to St Brown that made it 14-14 late in the first half, and a one-yard touchdown to DJ Chark that pulled the Lions within three points early in the third quarter at . 22-19.

New York Giants 20–28 Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott threw two touchdown passes to tight end Dalton Schultz, Ezekiel Elliott ran for a score and the Dallas Cowboys beat the New York Giants.

Rookie Peyton Hendershot ran for a two-yard TD before directing all three other tight ends into a giant Salvation Army red cauldron for a Whack-A-Mole celebration.

The win ended a three-game holiday losing streak for the Cowboys (8-3), who moved one game ahead of the Giants in the NFC East while sweeping the season series.

Saquon Barkley was held to 39 yards rushing with a one-yard TD behind a makeshift offensive line that was missing three starters due to injury in the third loss in the last four games for the Giants (7-4).

Dallas, the NFL leader in incoming sacks, dropped Daniel Jones three times while limiting him to 14 yards rushing after he ran for first downs seven times in the first meeting, a 23-16 Dallas victory.

New England Patriots 26-33 Minnesota Vikings

Kirk Cousins ​​threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns, the last a go-ahead score to Adam Thielen in the fourth quarter to push the Minnesota Vikings past the New England Patriots.

Justin Jefferson had 139 yards and one of the touchdown passes from Cousins, who delivered exactly the clutch performance the Vikings (9-2) needed to bounce back from a blowout loss to Dallas. That gave rookie coach Kevin O’Connell a win over Bill Belichick, who drafted him with the Patriots in 2008.

Mac Jones passed for a career-high 382 yards and two scores to spark a trailing offense for the Patriots (6-5), but they ran out of steam down the stretch. Their fourth quarter included two three-and-outs, a turnover on downs at the Minnesota 39 and a desperation last drive that went nowhere.
