Until I started researching this, I had always just assumed that the Lions and Cowboys get some kind of edge by playing on Thanksgiving. Turns out that both teams have worse records on Thanksgiving than they do in home games as a whole, and there doesn't seem to be any advantage to having three extra days of rest before the next game.

NFL ties are usually on the kicker anyway, but the Cardinals and Seahawks took things to a new level. Also: more late-game magic for Colts and Lions, and Mike Tomlin's questionable decision-making.
