Dan Bailey, of the Cowboys, and Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski traded field goals to close out the scoring.

In Detroit, Matthew Stafford made up for some mistakes with three touchdown passes, including one to Calvin Johnson, to help the Detroit Lions score 37 straight points after an awful start to beat the Green Bay Packers 40-10 on Thursday.

The Lions (7-5) had lost their past two games, five consecutive against Green Bay and a franchise-record nine straight in their annual showcase on Thanksgiving.

The Packers (5-6-1) have a five-game winless streak for the first time since 2008, showing how valuable Aaron Rodgers is for the franchise. Rodgers has missed four-plus games since fracturing his left collarbone.

Matt Flynn became the fourth starting quarterback for Green Bay this year and was sacked seven times, once by Ndamukong Suh for a safety.
