Philadelphia 23, Tampa Bay 21: Nick Foles connected with Jeremy Maclin for a one yard score on the final play of the game to give the Eagles the win. Philadelphia scored 13 points in the final 3:55 in rallying from a 21-10 deficit.

Washington 31, Baltimore 28 (OT): Kirk Cousins stepped in for the injured Robert Griffin III and led Washington to a comeback victory. Griffin III had to leave late in the fourth quarter and Cousins came in to hit Pierre Garcon for a touchdown in the final minute to force overtime. Kai Forbarth had the game winning 34 yard field goal.

Carolina 30, Atlanta 20: Simply a monster day for Cam Newton, as he threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns, and also had a 72 yard scoring scamper to send the Falcons to just their second loss of the season. Matt Ryan threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.

New York Jets 17, Jacksonville 10: The Jets kept the ball on the ground to pull out a workmanlike victory over the pathetic Jaguars. New York ran the ball 42 times compared to only 19 pass attempts, usually a good strategy when Mark Sanchez is under center. New York improves to 6-7, while Jacksonville falls to 2-11.
