Indianapolis 35, Detroit 33: Andrew Luck hit Donnie Avery with a touchdown pass on the final play of the game, and the Colts pulled out a miracle victory. Bengal fans are no doubt disappointed with this result, as Indianapolis remains one game up on Cincinnati in the loss column in improving to 8-4.
Green Bay 23, Minnesota 14: Aaron Rodgers threw for 286 yards and a touchdown to lead the Packers to the home victory and deal a serious blow to Minnesota’s playoff hopes. Adrian Peterson ran for 210 yards, including an 83 yard touchdown scamper.
New England 23, Miami 16: The Patriots led wire-to-wire for a win on the road against their divisional rival. Wes Welker caught 12 balls for 103 yards and a touchdown as New England improved to 9-3 and put a stranglehold on the AFC East.
Buffalo 34, Jacksonville 18: The Bills scored 27 unanswered points en route to a home victory over the Jaguars. Fred Jackson had 109 yards for Buffalo, which improves to 5-7.
Houston 24, Tennessee 10: The Titans turned the ball over a whopping six times in a loss to the Texans. That’s enough to embarrass anyone not named Charlie Batch. Jake Locker threw for over 300 yards but was picked off three times, while Matt Schaub threw for two scores to lead Houston.
New York Jets 7, Arizona 6: Rex Ryan had finally seen enough. Mark Sanchez threw three interceptions before being removed for Greg McElroy, who then proceeded to lead the Jets to their only score of the day in what turned out to be a one point victory. Unfortunately for Skip Bayless, Tim Tebow was not active as he recovers from broken ribs.
