NFL Scores: Packers, Cowboys Win; Ravens Extend AFC North Lead

The Thanksgiving NFL schedule was highlighted by the Baltimore Ravens' 16-6 win over the San Francisco 49ers, in which the Ravens sacked Alex Smith nine times. The win widened Baltimore's lead in the Steelers' AFC North division, and with the Ravens having to face only the Browns (twice), Bengals, Colts and Chargers in the remainder of the regular-season schedule, it  will be very tough for the Steelers to catch up.


The Packers defeated the Lions 27-15 to go to 11-0 on the season. The game featured an excellent performance by Aaron Rodgers, although it may be remembered most for a bizarre display of aggression by the Lions' Ndamukong Suh, who grinded Evan Dietrich-Smith's head into the turf, then kicked at his right arm.


The Cowboys beat the Dolphins 20-19 on a last-second field goal by Dan Bailey. The Cowboys currently lead the NFC East by a half a game over the New York Giants.
