Saints vs Falcons

Saints vs Falcons: Live The New Orleans Saints host the Atlanta Falcons in a Thanksgiving NFL 2018 game on Thursday, November 22.Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m. Central, 8:20 p.m. Eastern. The Saints are a 13-point favorite, according to Vegas Insider.New Orleans is 9-1 and in first place in the NFC South. Atlanta is 4-6 and in third.


The New Orleans Saints have been unstoppable. The Atlanta Falcons have struggled to stop anyone. It all adds up to a Thanksgiving night game that could get out of hand quickly.

“Where do you start?” moaned Marquand Manuel, the Falcon’s defensive coordinator.

The Saints (9-1) are leading the NFL in scoring and really piled it on the last two weeks, dropping 51 points on Cincinnati and 48 on defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia in a pair of blowout wins.

Most amazingly, New Orleans has scored on 24 of its last 29 possessions, not counting kneel-downs at the end of the game.Eighteen of those possessions have resulted in touchdowns.

Next up is Atlanta (4-6), a team that has lost two straight and ranks near the bottom of the league in every major defensive category. The Falcons have been ravaged by injuries, losing both safeties for the season and top linebacker Deion Jones for the last nine games. Jones has returned to the active roster but it’s not known if he’ll be able to go Thursday.

“It’s a challenge,” Marquand said. “The guys just have to be up to it for four quarters and understand that they’re going to make some plays. They’re hot right now.”

Live streaming for Saints-Falcons is available via NBC Sports Live Extra or via the NFL app.

While Drew Brees is having another huge year at age 39, New Orleans’ running game might be the real key to its offensive success.

The Saints rank sixth in the league with an average of 131.4 yards per game, and they’ve been especially tough to defend since Mark Ingram returned after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on banned substances.”Complementary football,” Ingram said. “Great teams play complementary football.”

Ingram has rushed for 388 yards since his return, combining with Alvin Kamara to provide a dynamic 1-2 punch. Kamara has run for 617 yards and 11 TDs, to go along with 56 receptions and four scores.

“The combination of both he and Alvin together has been pretty good for us,” coach Sean Payton said. “It is much more difficult if you are limited to just one of those players.”Marquand said Atlanta’s focus will be on trying to turn the Saints one-dimensional.

“It’s where you start every week: the ability to stop the run game,” he said. “Ingram has come back and given them a nice balance. That allows Drew to be who he is.”Indeed, Brees is still the one who makes it all click.

Last week, with newly signed receiver Brandon Marshall on the inactive list and the Eagles shading their coverage toward top receiver Michael Thomas, Brees threw touchdown passes to second-year pro Austin Carr and rookie Tre’Quan Smith.

Smith finished with 10 catches for a career-high 157 yards, giving the Falcons another player to worry about, though he hasn’t been practicing during the short week because of a foot issue.Thomas is certainly a handful, having already eclipsed 1,000 yards receiving with six games still to go.

“Drew’s going to shred you up, man,” Ingram said. “When we’re running the ball well, it just opens it up more for him. Even if not, he’s still going to do his thing. When he’s throwing it and slicing and dialing up plays like that and playing pitch and catch like that, they have to respect it.”

When these longtime division rivals met in Week 3, New Orleans pulled out a 43-37 victory in overtime . Most memorably, Brees forced the extra period with a 7-yard touchdown run in the closing minutes of regulation, spinning away from both Brian Poole and Robert Alford to reach the end zone. The Saints then won the coin toss and held the ball for more than 7 minutes in OT, capped by Brees’ 1-yard TD plunge that ended the game.The thrilling contest set a course for both teams.

The Falcons lost their next two games, as well, and never really recovered. The Saints haven’t lost since.

“The last time we played them, the tackling was not up to par,” Marquand said. “But we are a better defense than the last time we faced them. We’ve got to make sure we stop them in the red zone, because they’re going to make their plays. We’ve got to make them earn everything they get.”

Since losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Opening Weekend, the Saints have amassed nine wins in a row, and are one of only three teams in the NFL this season to reach that mark as of now — Los Angeles Rams (10-1) and Kansas City Chiefs (9-2). Even more impressive, New Orleans owns a home victory against Los Angeles.

On September 23, the Saints and Falcons dueled into overtime at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. It was Drew Brees who played hero, throwing for almost 400 yards (396) with five total touchdowns (three passing), scoring the game-winning rushing touchdown with 2:55 remaining in the extra frame to effectively dig the Falcons’ early-season hole even deeper.

Brees owns a 25-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio this season. On most lists, he has now probably surpassed Patrick Mahomes as front-runner for the Most Valuable Player award.The familiarity of the divisional opponent is helping head coach Sean Payton prepare the Saints’ plan of attack sooner.

Cowboys vs Redskins

How to watch Washington Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys: NFL live stream info, TV channel, time, game odds


The Cowboys could tie for the NFC East lead with a win on Thursdayby CBS Sports Staff • 2 min read  Who’s Playing Dallas Cowboys (home) vs. Washington Redskins (away)Current records: Dallas (5-5), Washington(6-4)

What to Know

Everything is coming up Cowboys for the time being. The team is on a two-game winning streak and well within striking distance of the NFC East lead just weeks after nearly everyone was calling for Jason Garrett’s head. The trade for Amari Cooper has paid off for the time being, and the Cowboys can knock the Redskins to 6-5 on the season while bumping themselves up to 6-5. Someone has to win the East, and now the Cowboys are thinking “why not us?

  • Bears and Redskins are in perfectly good hands with their backup quarterbacks, and more notes

Meanwhile, the Redskins are dealing with the loss of Alex Smith, who suffered a spiral fracture in his leg last week against the Texans. Colt McCoy took over in that game, and the Redskins have signed Mark Sanchez in the meantime. The gruesome injury is the latest in a series of unfortunate events for the Redskins, who have dealt with injuries to what feels like their entire offense.

The Cowboys are in a good place right now. Four of their last six games are at home, and they have a beatable schedule outside of the Saints next week. Ezekiel Elliott has been getting a bit more involved in Scott Linehan’s play-calling, and he’s as hard to stop as ever. While the trade for Cooper may have ultimately been myopic, he’s been a welcome addition for Dak Prescott.

The Redskins, of course, are faced with an opportunity here. While the talk has been around the Cowboys, a win in Jerryworld would go a long way toward securing the division. It will be difficult, but their defense has been stout this season. If they can slow down the likes of Elliott, they can pick up a two-game lead in the NFC East, which amounts to a three-game lead over the Cowboys with the tiebreaker.

Here’s how our experts see the game playing out.

Cowboys vs Redskins Live – NFL FooTball Game Day 2018 NBC

Zack Rosenblatt: The winner of this game ultimately might win the NFC East. The Redskins have been decimated by injuries while the Cowboys have played well in recent weeks. Cowboys 21, Redskins 14.

Ryan Dunleavy: Colt McCoy was named to play quarterback against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. The Redskins have made overcoming injuries a rallying cry, but the season-ending injury suffered by Alex Smith is just too much to handle. Cowboys 20, Redskins 12.

Matthew Stypulkoski: The Redskins have put together a somewhat surprisingly good start to the season, but now they have to try to keep it going without quarterback Alex Smith. Best of luck with that. Especially given the Cowboys know they could climb into a tie for first place with a home victory. Cowboys 21, Redskins 14.Mike Kaye: The battle for the NFC East crown is a morbid one. Washington may be the most injury-plagued team in the league (outside of maybe Philadelphia) and Dallas is about as mediocre as it gets. Still, mediocre is better than depth-deprived. The Cowboys will pull ahead for the division lead. Cowboys 16, Washington 12.

Darryl Slater: Weird, down year in the NFC East. For all of the Cowboys’ flaws, they could wind up overtaking Washington for the division lead, especially with Alex Smith done for the year. Cowboys 17, Washington 10.

Joe Giglio: The Cowboys are starting to coalesce into being a good football team. The Redskins are starting Colt McCoy. Cowboys 24, Redskins 16.

Bears vs Lions

NFL Thanksgiving Day odds, line: Bears vs. Lions picks and predictions from top-rated expert who’s 12-6 on Chicago games


The first-place Chicago Bears go for their fifth straight win when they visit the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving. It’s a 12:30 p.m. ET kickoff from Ford Field. Chicago handled Minnesota, 25-20, on Sunday night to improve to 7-3 under first-year coach Matt Nagy, extending its NFC North lead to 1.5 games. However, they’ll likely be without quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who’s doubtful with a shoulder injury, and will instead turn to veteran Chase Daniel. Meanwhile, Detroit snapped a three-game skid with a 20-19, gut-check win over visiting Carolina, but will be without wide receiver Marvin Jones (knee). Chicago is a three-point road favorite, with the over-under for total points set at 43.5 in the latest Bears vs. Lions odds. Before you make any Bears vs. Lions picks, see what NFL guru Larry Hartstein picked.

SportsLine’s senior analyst and resident Bears expert is 12-6 in his past 18 against-the-spread picks involving Chicago, including telling his followers to back the Bears (-6.5) when the Lions visited Soldier Field in Week 10. “Khalil Mack is coming back and the Bears are going to keep Matthew Stafford under duress. Lay it,” Hartstein wrote. The result: Mack had two of Chicago’s six sacks as the Bears rolled.

It was another easy cash for Hartstein, who’s a stunning 35-16 on all NFL point-spread picks this season. Anyone who has followed him is way, way up.

Now, Hartstein has pounced on what he calls a mistake in the Lions vs. Bears spread for Thanksgiving (stream live on fuboTV). He’s sharing his pick only at SportsLine.

Hartstein knows the Bears have won and covered four straight, including divisional showdowns against the Vikings and Lions, behind a ferocious defense. Chicago leads the NFL with 27 takeaways (18 interceptions, nine fumble recoveries) and ranks fourth in points allowed (19.5). Mack has eight sacks, five forced fumbles and an INT despite missing two games.

Daniel knows the offensive system from his time with Nagy in Kansas City. The Bears signed him to a two-year, $10 million deal in March, and flanking him in the backfield will be two very capable running backs in Jordan Howard (five rushing touchdowns) and the versatile Tarik Cohen (three receiving scores).

But just because the Bears have positioned themselves atop the NFC North doesn’t mean they’ll cover in Detroit, where Chicago is 2-6 against the spread in its last eight visits.

The Lions always play inspired football on Thanksgiving, and the 2018 version carries momentum from its scintillating 20-19 home upset of Carolina. With just over one minute left, Detroit successfully defended a two-point conversion attempt to register another huge home win after also knocking off Green Bay and New England at Ford Field this season.

In fact, Detroit has covered five of its past seven home games and four of its last five Thanksgiving NFL games.

Stafford is completing over 66 percent of his throws and has seven multi-touchdown performances this season. And he’ll be highly confident against Chicago, with Detroit having won eight of the last 10 meetings.

We can tell you Hartstein is leaning Over, but his much stronger play is against the spread. He’s isolated misleading information that’s caused a mistake in this spread.

Thanksgiving Day Parade live stream: Time, TV schedule, and how to watch Macy’s celebration onlineBy The 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade turns 92 on Thursday when marching bands, musicians, balloons, and Santa Claus grace the streets of New York City with one of the iconic events of the fall calendar, beginning 9 a.m. ET on Thanksgiving morning.

The parade has been aired on NBC since 1954, with this year’s broadcast being the 90th time its aired. Only two years haven’t been shown on TV, 1940 and 1941 after networks decided not to air the parade following an experimental broadcast in 1939. Now it’s estimated that over 44 million people watch the parade each year in preparation for their day full of sports, food and dodging problematic family members.

Bundle up if you plan to be attending the parade in person, because forecasts indicate a frigid morning in New York City with temperatures in the low-20s in the morning, paired with winds that could make it feel like it’s in the single-digits.

This year marks the first time an anime character will be depicted as a parade balloon, with Goku being a part of the show to promote the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie. Goku makes his debut alongside the cast of The Christmas Chronicles, a Netflix-produced holiday series.
