Alvin Kamara has done something only ever accomplished by a pair of Hall of Famers.
Thursday night’s game in Dallas will air nationally on NBC and NFL Network. It’s the third of five Thursday night games that were scheduled to be televised on NBC throughout the season (not including the NFL season-opener) as part of the NFL’s “Thursday Night Football” expansion package for 2016 and ’17. NBC also televised the Thanksgiving night game between the Giants and Redskins on Thursday, Nov. 23. CBS carried five Thursday night games earlier this year. In addition to CBS and NBC, NFL Network broadcasts every Thursday night game of the season.

The rebound, however, went back to Pearson, who knocked it high by Darling for the game-winner.

“I think it comes from a big chuck of the group that knows how to win. They’re comfortable playing in tight games. They’re not going to sit there and hang their heads because things didn’t go our way. There was still time on the clock to make it right.”
