DETROIT -- Case Keenum threw two touchdown passes to Kyle Rudolph and ran for another, and the Minnesota Vikings extended their winning streak to seven games with a 30-23 victory over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.

Keenum completed 21 of 30 passes for 282 yards. Latavius Murray gained 84 yards on 20 carries and scored a touchdown for Minnesota. Everson Griffen led the defense with two sacks.

Minnesota (9-2) opened up a three-game lead in the NFC North with five games remaining.

Matthew Stafford passed for 250 yards and two touchdowns and was intercepted once for the Lions (6-5), who saw their three-game winning streak snapped. Detroit's Marvin Jones caught six passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns.

Chargers 28, Cowboys 6

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Los Angeles' defense gobbled up the Dallas offense, and Philip Rivers did the rest as the Chargers rolled to a victory.

Rivers passed for 434 yards and three second-half touchdowns, including a 27-yarder to Tyrell Williams that gave the Chargers (5-6) a 16-0 lead late in the third quarter.

Dallas' offensive woes continued, as the Cowboys (5-6) produced just 247 total yards.

Redskins 20, Giants 10

LANDOVER, Md. -- Kirk Cousins fired a 14-yard, go-ahead touchdown pass to Josh Doctson with 3:31 left in the game, and Washington defeated New York.
