It’s been an up and down season for third year pro Jourdan Lewis with the Dallas Cowboys. He hasn’t had the most consistent of playing time or opportunities given to him by coach Jason Garrett. Thursday, the Cowboys lost 26-15 to the Buffalo Bills, but Lewis put forth one of his best individual performances of the season.

After seeing extended action off the bench during Week 12, Patrick Omameh made his first start for the New Orleans Saints in the team’s 26-18 Thanksgiving victory over the Falcons in Atlanta. Playing at left tackle, Omameh did allow one sack and was called for a holding penalty but his efforts were rewarded with a team win. Graham Glasgow returned to his natural spot at guard after filling in for an injured Frank Ragnow the past two weeks for the Detroit Lions. The Lions dropped their Thanksgiving matchup to the Bears 24-20. Taylor Lewan helped road grade paths for Derrick Henry as the Titans won their third game in a row, defeating the Colts 31-17.
