Stephen Hauschka needed only to make a 27-yard field goal to give the Seattle Seahawks an overtime victory over Arizona. Chandler Catanzaro's only had to hit a 24-yarder to give the Cardinals a win. Hauschka's kick was wide left with 7 seconds left after Catanzaro booted one off the left upright, and the game between two teams that have dominated the NFC West in recent years ended in a 6-6 tie Sunday night.
Their momentum gone and the Pittsburgh Steelers surging behind backup quarterback Landry Jones, the New England Patriots needed something to get them going. Twice the undermanned Steelers needed one stop to give their offense the ball with a chance to take the lead on Sunday afternoon. The Steelers were within 14-13 when Blount broke runs of 11 and 25 yards to set up a 36-yard touchdown from Brady to Gronkowski early in the third quarter.
Josh Lambo said kicking his game-winning field goal - his fourth of the game - was no more difficult than an extra point. The hard work, according to the kicker, was handled by Denzel Perryman and San Diego's defense. Lambo's 42-yard field goal in overtime gave San Diego its first road victory of the year, as the Chargers rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 33-30 on Sunday.
Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio heard boos throughout his return to Jacksonville. Latavius Murray scored twice in his first game back from turf toe, and the Raiders handled the listless Jaguars 33-16 Sunday and gave Del Rio a victory against his former team. ''It is good to come back here and get a good effort in this stadium,'' said Del Rio, who was given the game ball by quarterback Derek Carr in the locker room.
Matthew Stafford dropped back and delivered a strike, threading a sharp pass between a lunging linebacker and a blanketing cornerback. Stafford's go-ahead, 18-yard touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin with 16 seconds left lifted the Detroit Lions to a 20-17 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. The Lions (4-3) have won three straight thanks in large part to Stafford making clutch throws in the final minutes, giving him 24 career wins with game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime.
Fitz Magic returned after Geno Smith's sequel ended early, and the New York Jets got their first victory in over a month. Fitzpatrick replaced an injured Smith and led the Jets on three scoring drives, and a rejuvenated defense came up with two rare interceptions in a 24-16 comeback victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday that snapped a four-game skid. ''It's a pretty ironic situation,'' Fitzpatrick said.
As the NFL's newest rushing star, Jay Ajayi is carrying the Miami Dolphins toward respectability. Ajayi tied a league record by surpassing 200 yards rushing for the second game in a row, helping Miami rally past the Buffalo Bills 28-25 Sunday. Ajayi rushed for 214 yards in 29 carries after totaling 204 yards a week earlier in a win over Pittsburgh.
Josh Huff returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown, Carson Wentz outplayed Sam Bradford and the Philadelphia Eagles beat Minnesota 21-10 on Sunday, handing the Vikings their first loss of the season. The Eagles (4-2) snapped a two-game losing streak while the rested Vikings (5-1) hardly looked like an unbeaten team after having a bye. ''I thought we played embarrassing in two phases,'' Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.
Green's one-handed catch in the middle of an end zone scrum highlighted Cincinnati's day full of big plays, and the Bengals pulled away to another lopsided victory over their intrastate rival, beating the winless Cleveland Browns 31-17 on Sunday. Green's 48-yard touchdown catch on the final play of the first half helped the Bengals (3-4) regain their footing in the injury-depleted AFC North. The defending division champions piled up their most points since they beat the Browns 37-3 last December.
The New York Giants capitalized on four interceptions of Case Keenum to defeat the Los Angeles Rams 17-10 Sunday in the first NFL game played at London's home of English rugby, a sold-out and raucous Twickenham Stadium. Keenum, coming off the best start of his career, had the Rams at the Giants' 15-yard line with 50 seconds left when he lobbed a pass in the left corner of the end zone that Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie easily picked off. Keenum's intended target, Brian Quick, failed to get the quarterback's audible and cut off his route early.
