The New England Patriots exploded with 35 points in the second quarter and routed the New York Jets 49-19 for their fifth straight victory. That's the 200th victory for Bill Belichick, who is the eighth NFL coach with at least 200 wins.
Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz is taking the blame for breaking an NFL rule on a scoring play that was costly to his team in the Houston Texans' 34-31 overtime victory yesterday. Schwartz threw a challenge flag that negated the automatic review.
It's back-to-back four touchdown passing games for sensational Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. The rookie out of Baylor returned to his native Texas and led the underdog Redskins to a 38-31 win over Dallas, their first win in seven Thanksgiving Day games against the Cowboys.
