  Vikings OL Dru Samia tests positive for COVID-19 Vikings offensive lineman Dru Samia has tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing is being performed, and Samia and anyone deemed a high-risk contact will not be permitted to travel with the team for tomorrow night’s game against the Bears. © Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Samia, a 2019 fourth-rounder, started four games for Minnesota earlier this year before returning to a reserve role. But the Vikings just released Pat Elflein and now find themselves without their top backup at guard. Plus, there is a good chance that there will indeed be high-risk contacts given the nature of O-line/D-line play.

Ron Rivera is the gift that keeps on giving in the NFL.

"Riverboat Ron" has long been one of the most respected coaches in all of football, dating to his days as the Panthers' head coach, where he gambled and attempted fourth-down conversions before it became mainstream across the league. His first season as head coach of the Washington Football Team has been one of, if not the toughest of his career as he has had to balance coaching while undergoing cancer treatments. But Rivera proved on Thanksgiving against the Cowboys that he's still the same fun-loving coach that he was with Carolina.

On a second-and-5 at the Dallas 16 in the first half, Washington ran a "fumblerooski" play that resulted in a 6-yard run for J.D. McKissic. It's a neat play at first glance, but upon further inspection many fans recognized it as "The Annexation of Puerto Rico," the famous trick play from the 1994 film classic "Little Giants."

  Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization Broncos defensive coordinator Ed Donatell required hospitalization after contracting the coronavirus, according to the team. The second-year Denver DC was hospitalized last week but discharged Sunday. Donatell, 63, has been battling COVID-19 symptoms since Oct. 31 and has missed the past three games. Donatell, who is in his third stint with the franchise, is one of a few Broncos staffers to have contracted the virus. Running backs coach Curtis Modkins did so in October, and offensive line coach Mike Munchak was in the team’s COVID protocol.

Here's a video of the original play, for reference. So maybe there were fewer theatrics in Washington's version.

Rivera, who is half Puerto Rican on his father's side, said after the game that the play call was indeed inspired by the famous "Little Giants" play and that he had seen the movie "100 times" with his kids, who love the film.

Rivera also said the team calls the play the "Bumerooski" after legendary football coach Bum Phillips, who invented the particular variation of the play.

As Governors Lock Down, Millions of Americans Are Booking Thanksgiving Travel, Planning Parties

  As Governors Lock Down, Millions of Americans Are Booking Thanksgiving Travel, Planning Parties In a turbulent year marked by COVID killing over a quarter of a million Americans, but also isolation and paused lives, Americans must weigh up their priorities and the risks they are willing to take when celebrating Thanksgiving. A forecast from the American Automobile Association that 50 million people will travel for Thanksgiving is indicative of the choice of some. A survey by The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center found almost two in five Americans plan go to a gathering of more than 10 people. A third said they would not require guests to wear a mask.

This isn't even the first time we've seen a Rivera-led team execute "The Annexation of Puerto Rico." The Panthers ran it in 2011 against the Texans, with Richie Brockel running it in for a touchdown.

It's plays like that one that make Rivera a treasure in the NFL. Bringing out an old backyard football trick on Thanksgiving is a great way to endear yourself to football fans across the country. And beating the Cowboys 41-16 doesn't hurt, either.
