It took nine years, but the San Francisco 49ers finally got some payback on Thursday night for the Seattle Seahawks feasting on turkey after a win at Levi's Stadium in 2014. The Seahawks' 19-3 win over the 49ers on Thanksgiving in 2014 was the last time either team played on Thanksgiving before Thursday night, and after that game then-Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman dug into the postgame turkey at the 50-yard line of Levi's Stadium at a time when the rivalry between the two teams was at a peak. The 49ers flipped the script on Thursday, notching a 31-13 win over the Seahawks at Lumen Field in Seattle that was followed by a slew of 49ers getting their fill of Thanksgiving turkey, courtesy of NBC.

The Philadelphia Eagles have now secured five consecutive victories, with their latest being a 37-34 overtime win on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. The win elevates Philadelphia's record to 10-1, setting the stage for a crucial Week 13 showdown against the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers will enter the NFC Championship Game rematch with an 8-3 record, trailing the top-seeded Eagles by two games in the NFC playoff picture. A 49ers victory at Lincoln Financial Field would improve their record to 9-3 and drop the Eagles to 10-2. While San Francisco would still be one game behind Philadelphia in the race for home-field advantage, it would now possess the all-important head-to-head tiebreaker. The Eagles would still maintain control, but Kyle Shanahan's
