The good, the bad and the ugly from NFL on Thanksgiving: Cowboys TEs dominate, Patriots special teams struggle

+

There was plenty to feast on in the NFL this Thanksgiving. The Detroit Lions took the Buffalo Bills down to the wire before losing, 28-25, the Dallas Cowboys came back to defeat the rival New York Giants, 28-20, and the Vikings outlasted the Patriots en route to a 33-26 win. With every Thanksgiving feast comes the good, the bad, and the ugly. For me, the stuffing this year was incredible, but the corn pudding was a little burnt. As for grandma's peanut butter soup, that was the ugly part of Thanksgiving. Not sure what she was thinking there, but I appreciate the attempt to shake things up. Below, we will break down the good, the bad, and the ugly from the three NFL games we digested on Thursday.

+

Minnesota Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson set an NFL record Thursday night against the New England Patriots for the most receiving yards in the first three seasons of a career. Jefferson needed four fewer games to break the previous mark held by another former Vikings receiver, Randy Moss, who had 4,163 yards from 1998-2000. Jefferson's record-breaking catch came on a 37-yard play with five minutes, eight seconds remaining in the third quarter of the Vikings' game against the Patriots. Jefferson accomplished the feat in his 44th career game, while Moss' total came over the course of 48 games.

Violence Against Transgender People is on the Rise, Stopping it Requires a Holistic Solution

+

In late July, drag queen Patty Bourrée was reading a children’s book and playing the ukulele at a story hour event in Boston, Mass. when a group of masked neo-Nazis stormed the event. Bourrée is doing just fine, but she’s concerned about the children who had to walk among neo-Nazis chanting anti-transgender, anti-LGBTQ slurs and about the parents who brought their children to the small, regularly-held, and popular event. So when Bourrée pulled up to her next event, planned for the first weekend of August, and saw the same neo-Nazis lurking outside, she knew she had to cancel. "I can’t put myself (and the kids!) in a potentially violent situation," she said on Twitter. According to Bourrée, every drag queen story hour in the past few months has received some level of anti-LGBT attention. Local media has documented a sharp uptick in neo-Nazi activity in 2022, including from NSC-131, the group that targeted Bourrée.

The sun gives energy

The sun gives energy to life on Earth, and without this star, we wouldn’t be here. But like most things in space, even stars have limited lifetimes, and someday our sun will die. You don’t need to worry about this solar death anytime soon, though. Inside the sun, a churning fusion engine fuels the star, and it still has a lot of fuel left — about 5 billion years’ worth. Stars like our sun form when a huge cloud of gas (mostly hydrogen and helium) grows so large that it collapses under…DAincrease

Seahawks Waive Keenan Reynolds

It appears Keenan Reynolds' time with the Seahawks might have come to a close as the Seahawks waived the former Navy standout prior to their game against the Raiders in London. At least he will get some frequent flyer miles and a nice trip to the UK out of this to go with his game check this week! Here's to hoping he is quick to find a home with another team's practice squad or roster.
