Falcons 27 Lions 7 (Thurs.)
How Matt Millen wasnâ€™t asked to follow Steve Mariucci out the door of the Silverdome is a mystery.
Stat of the game: After losing two games with Vick passing for 300-plus yards, the Falcons got back to the run and piled up 256 yards on Detroit.
Broncos 24 Cowboys 21 (Thurs.)
Ron Dayneâ€™s downhill style fits perfectly in the Broncoâ€™s scheme. His 55-yard OT run to setup the game winning field goal and gave a few fans in Giant country a case of Thanksgiving indigestion.
Stat of the game: Denverâ€™s defense has now held six straight teams under 100 yards rushing.

Stat of the game: Carolina converted 9 of 13 3rd downs.
Bengals 42 Ravens 29
The Ravens shouldnâ€™t score 29 on anyone. The Bengals defensive holes will keep them from winning in the playoffs.

Stat of the Game: The Chargers won despite a â€“3 in the turnover department.
Rams 33 Texans 27
Ryan Fitzpatrick is a nice story for the Rams, but they shouldnâ€™t find themselves down 24-3 to the Texans. This loss seals Dom Capers fate if it wasnâ€™t a done deal before the game.
Stat of the Game: The Texans will have the first pick in the 2006 draft.
Dolphins 33 Raiders 21

The Jets showed signs of life, but it wasnâ€™t enough to win. The real question is will it be enough for Herman Edwards to keep his job.
