Thanksgiving Weekend in the NFL is now complete. Here are the top five headlines from Week 12 of the week that was.
5) 29-12 final for first time ever.
For the first time ever we saw a 29-12 final score in the National Football League. That was the final score at Mile High Stadium on Sunday as the Denver Broncos beat the Cleveland Browns. The Broncos had control of the game early thanks to short touchdown runs by quarterback Russell Wilson of Cincinnati, Ohio and Samaje Perine of Jackson, Alabama.
4) Jaguars win thanks to a doink.
The Jacksonville Jaguars continue to lead the AFC South thanks to a game-ending doink. Texans kicker Matt Ammendola missed a 58-yard field goal on the final play of regulation when the football hit the crossbar and bounced out. As a result, the Jaguars won 24-21 and improved their record to eight wins and three losses.
3) Jake Elliott makes dramatic 59-yard field goal.
Jake Elliott of La Grange, Illinois made a dramatic 59-yard field goal on Sunday in a 37-34 Philadelphia Eagles overtime win over the Buffalo Bills. The field goal tied the game with 20 seconds left in the fourth quarter. The 59-yard field goal was not a career high for Elliott. He actually has made two field goals from 61 yards. With the win, the Eagles improve to 10-1.
