Dolphins 22, Bengals 20

Miami defensive end Cameron Wake sacked Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton with 6:38 left in overtime to give the Dolphins their fourth win of the season.

Miami’s defense was responsible for nine of the team’s 22 points, proving too much for Dalton and the Bengals.

 

Chiefs 23, Bills 13

Despite being outgained by 260 yards of total offense, the Kansas City Chiefs remain unbeaten thanks to a pair of defensive touchdowns.

In defeat, Bills running backs C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson combined for 254 total yards, picking up the slack for quarterback Jeff Tuel, who threw two interceptions.

 

Panthers 34, Falcons 10

Atlanta’s nightmare season continued, as quarterback Matt Ryan threw three interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown by Panthers cornerback Drayton Florence.

Carolina quarterback Cam Newton and running backs Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert combined for 131 rushing yards and two scores.

Cowboys 27, Vikings 23

Dallas quarterback Tony Romo threw for 337 yards and two scores, including the game-winning touchdown to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds remaining.

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who was born and raised a Cowboys fan in East Texas, racked up 140 yards rushing and a touchdown in his first game at Cowboys Stadium.

 

Jets 26, Saints 20

New York Jets running back Chris Ivory, acquired from New Orleans in April for a fourth-round draft pick, rushed for 139 yards and a touchdown against his former team.

For the Saints, quarterback Drew Brees racked up 382 yards through the air, but his two touchdowns were matched with a pair of interceptions. New Orleans ran the ball just 13 times for the game.

 

Titans 28, Rams 21

Tennessee running back Chris Johnson scored two touchdowns and rushed for 150 yards to help the Titans end a three-game losing streak.

For the Rams, rookie running back Zach Stacy recorded his second consecutive 100-yard rushing day, totaling 127 yards and two scores on 27 carries.

 

Washington 30, Chargers 24

Behind running back Alfred Morris’ 121 yards and fullback Darrel Young’s three touchdowns, Washington’s ground game was enough to power past San Diego.

In a losing effort, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers racked up 341 yards through the air, including a pair of touchdowns.

 

Eagles 49, Raiders 20

Nick Foles tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes, as the visiting Eagles blew out the Oakland Raiders. Eagles receiver Riley Cooper caught five passes for 139 yards and three scores.

The teams combined for 1,102 yards of total offense, but most of Oakland’s yardage came in garbage time, as Eagles led 49-13 headed into the fourth quarter.

 

Seahawks 27, Buccaneers 24

Down 21-0 to start the game, the host Seattle Seahawks battled back and pulled off the biggest comeback in franchise history to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson ran for a touchdown and threw two more, including a 10-yard touchdown to Doug Baldwin, which tied the game with 1:51 remaining in regulation. Steven Hauschka kicked the game-winning field goal in overtime.

 

Browns 24, Ravens 18

In his second start of the season, Browns quarterback Jason Campbell threw three touchdown passes to end Cleveland’s 11-game losing streak against the Ravens.

Baltimore’s losing streak reached a third game, which marks the first time the Ravens have lost their first game out of the bye week under coach Jim Harbaugh.

 

Patriots 55, Steelers 31

Tom Brady racked up a season-best 432 yards and four scores through the air to power the Patriots past Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and Aaron Dobson each had more than 100 yards receiving for the Patriots, who posted 610 yards of total offense.

 

Colts 27, Texans 24

In his second career start, Texans quarterback Case Keenum threw for 350 yards and three scores, helping Houston get out to a 21-3 halftime lead.

Texans head coach Gary Kubiak collapsed at halftime and was taken to a local hospital.

From that point, the Colts outscored the Texans 24-3 in the second half to pull off the comeback win.
