Monday Morning Digest: Raiders, Buccaneers Thrill in Scary NFL Thanksgiving Week

Thanksgiving isn't supposed to be scary. Halloween is supposed to be scary. Thanksgiving, and the Sunday that follows, is all about feasting. 

But it was a Sunday of terror for teams around the NFL that thought they would be feasting in Week 12. The Patriots survived a near-upset at the hands of the lowly Jets. Raiders fans had lumps in their throats while their team got the jitters and nearly blew a 24-7 halftime lead against the Panthers. Seahawks fans once again recoiled in terror at the sight of their own offensive line, which is the football equivalent of law enforcement during The Purge. The Dolphins, Bills and Titans got rattled in nail-biters against three of the NFL's worst teams.

Monday Morning Digest cannot be jump-scared into missing any Sunday action, so we have the lowdown on:

  • How the Raiders (including Khalil Mack, pictured) won the West (so far).
  • Why Mike Evans makes the Buccaneers legitimate playoff contenders.
  • Which bad quarterbacks were actually pretty good on Sunday.
  • Just how many consecutive snaps Joe Thomas has played (hint: No one has any clue).
  • The impact of Rob Gronkowski's injury on the Patriots, assuming Gronkowski is injured, because heaven knows the Patriots won't provide any straight answers.

And much more!
