NOV 15 CEEDEE WINS CeeDee Lamb has won the Week 10 NFL award for “NFC Offensive Player of the Week.”

Lamb had 11 catches for 151 yards with a touchdown catch and added a rushing TD in the Cowboys’ 48-17 win over the Giants. In doing so, he became the first player in NFL history to have three straight games of at least 10 catches for 150-plus yards.

NOV 14 NFL ANNOUNCES MADDEN CELEBRATION PLANS The NFL plans to once again use its Thanksgiving proceedings as a multi-pronged tribute to the late John Madden, revealing its plans for the second “John Madden Thanksgiving Celebration” on Tuesday.

Madden, the Hall-of-Fame head coach and broadcaster, is widely credited with popularizing the concept of NFL football on the fourth Thursday in November. This year’s tripleheader, which features the Dallas Cowboys against the Washington Commanders, will once again feature “John Madden Thanksgiving Celebration” stencils on the sidelines of home stadiums. The coin used in each game’s opening toss will bear Madden’s likeness as heads and a six-legged turducken, referencing Madden’s gift to the player of the game when he called holiday showdowns on CBS, Fox, and NBC, as tails. All players will also wear a jersey patch featuring Madden’s face. A “Madden Hallmark,” where Madden himself will discuss what the holiday meant to him in a segment produced by the NFL, will air before kickoff of each game.

As is tradition, the Cowboys will partake in the middle game of the Thanksgiving set: fellow Turkey Day mainstay Detroit will host Green Bay in the opener while the event closes with the Seattle Seahawks facing the San Francisco 49ers. This will be the 11th meeting between Dallas and Washington on Thanksgiving, as the Commanders franchise has been the most common Cowboy opponent in the holiday slot. Dallas has gone 8-2 in the prior 10 meetings.

NOV 13 MORE DIGGS DRAMA Frankly, the last thing Bills receiver Stefon Diggs needs is to be a part of any more drama in Buffalo, where a supposed Super Bowl contender is now a 5-5 team after an embarrassing Monday night 24-22 home loss to the Broncos smiling in which Diggs had just three catches for 34 yards on five targets.

The Bills could do nothing right here, and at game’s end, Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs, sent a very public message to his brother, Stefon, and to the world: “Man 14 Gotta get up out of there.”

This is not the Diggs brothers’ first rodeo. Stefon has been displeased in Buffalo before, and Trevon, presently injured and out for the year for the 6-3 Cowboys, has called for him to be traded to Dallas before.
