Sunday's games

Rams 27, Saints 16: Drew Brees threw interceptions that led to touchdowns on New Orleans' first two possessions, and St. Louis got big days from Zac Stacy and Robert Quinn. Quinn had two sacks, giving him an NFC-leading 15, for a pass rush that took the heat off a young secondary. Stacy had 106 yards in the first half and finished with 132 on 27 carries. The Saints missed a chance to clinch a playoff berth.

Dolphins 24, Patriots 20: Miami (8-6) helped its playoff chances and snapped a streak of seven consecutive losses to New England. Ryan Tannehill threw for 312 yards and three touchdowns, including a 14-yarder to Marcus Thigpen with 1:15 left.

Vikings 48, Eagles 30: Matt Cassel passed for 382 yards and two touchdowns and ran for a score as injury-depleted Minnesota snapped Philadelphia's five-game winning streak. With Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart out, Matt Asiata rushed for the first three touchdowns of his career and Greg Jennings caught a career-high 11 passes for 163 yards for the Vikings.

Panthers 30, Jets 20: Cam Newton threw for 273 yards and a touchdown, Captain Munnerlyn had two sacks and returned an interception for a score and Carolina won to tie New Orleans for the NFC South lead. They meet next week in Charlotte.

Steelers 30, Bengals 20: Antonio Brown caught a 12-yard touchdown pass and returned a punt 67 yards for a score in a 64-second span as Pittsburgh built a 21-0 first-quarter lead en route to a win over Cincinnati.

Falcons 27, Redskins 26: Desmond Trufant deflected Kirk Cousins' pass on a potential winning 2-point conversion with 18 seconds remaining, and Atlanta edged Washington. The Falcons scored 20 points off seven Washington turnovers.

Seahawks 23, Giants 0: Richard Sherman had two interceptions and Marshawn Lynch scored on a twisting, triple-effort 2-yard run for Seattle. Eli Manning was picked off a career-worst five times.

Bears 38, Browns 31: Jay Cutler shook off some early rustiness and threw three touchdown passes in his first start since Nov. 10. Cutler, who missed Chicago's previous four games with a sprained left ankle, threw a 4-yard TD pass to Earl Bennett with 5:41 left as Bears rallied to stay in contention for an NFC playoff spot.

Colts 25, Texans 3: Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes, and Robert Mathis broke Indianapolis' single-season and career sacks records -- both on a second-half play that also produced a safety -- to lead the Colts past Houston. Mathis, the NFL sacks leader, has 16½ this season and 108 in his career, breaking the franchise records held by longtime teammate and close friend Dwight Freeney.

Bills 27, Jaguars 20: EJ Manuel threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score, leading Buffalo over Jacksonville.

Cardinals 37, Titans 34: Arizona won after Tennessee scored 17 points in the final 3:12 of regulation to force overtime, with Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing two of his four TD passes to Michael Preston. The Titans also recovered an onside kick to set up the tying TD with 10 seconds left in regulation.

Packers 37, Cowboys 36: Green Bay's comeback from a 23-point deficit matched the franchise record set by the 1982 team.
