Dolphins 20, Raiders 13 Miami Gardens, Fla.: Jalen Ramsey jumped with both arms stretched over his body and came down in the end zone with an interception of Aidan O’connell with 22 seconds left, helping the Dolphins stifle the Las Vegas Raiders’ fourth-quarter comeback. Ramsey also intercepted the Raiders rookie quarterback earlier in the game. He has three takeaways in three games with Miami after missing the first seven with a knee injury. Packers 23, Chargers 20 Green Bay, Wis.: Jordan Love threw for 322 yards and found Romeo Doubs for a 24-yard touchdown with 2:33 left to give Green Bay a victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. It was a milestone rally for a young Packers team that continually had come up just short late in games this season. Love went 27 of 40 and became the first Packer to throw for more than 300 yards since Aaron Rodgers had a 341-yard day against the Chicago Bears on Dec. 12, 2021. Browns 13, Steelers 10 Cleveland: Delivering on a promise to improve in his second NFL start, Dorian Thompson-robinson completed four straight passes on a clutch drive to set up Dustin Hopkins’ 34-yard field goal with 2 seconds left that gave Cleveland the win. The Browns (7-3) rallied just days after the team was rocked by losing franchise QB Deshaun Watson for the season with a shoulder injury. Lions 31, Bears 26 Detroit: Jared Goff threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Jameson Williams with 3:06 to go and connected on five throws to set up David Montgomery’s go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run with 29 seconds left, lifting the Lions over the Justin Fields-led Chicago Bears. The NFC North-leading Lions (8-2) overcame four turnovers and three interceptions. Jaguars 34, Titans 14 Jacksonville, Fla.: Trevor Lawrence accounted for four touchdowns, including two perfectly thrown passes to Calvin Ridley, and Jacksonville followed its worst loss of the season with a drubbing of the Tennessee Titans. Ridley finished with seven catches for 103 yards, finding the end zone twice for the first time with the Jaguars (7-3) and doubling his TD total for the season. Texans 21, Cardinals 16 Houston: C.J. Stroud threw for 336 yards with two touchdowns and had 2,962 yards passing, the fourth-most ever in a player’s first 10 games. And he joined Joe Burrow as the only rookies in NFL history with 300 or more yards passing in three consecutive games. Cowboys 33, Panthers 10 Charlotte, N.C.: Dak Prescott threw for 189 yards and two touchdowns, Daron Bland tied an NFL record with his fourth pick-6 of the season. Dallas got its fourth win in five games. Bland made a diving interception of Bryce Young near the sideline early in the fourth quarter, got up and raced 30 yards for a touchdown for a 30-10 lead. Giants 31, Commanders 19 Landover, Md.: Sam Howell threw three interceptions among six Commanders turnovers, and Washington may have reached the low point of coach Ron Rivera’s tenure as coach with a home loss to the last-place New York Giants. The Commanders (4-7) lost to the Giants (3-8) for the second time this season. 49ers 27, Buccaneers 14 Santa Clara, Calif.: Brock Purdy threw a 76-yard strike to Brandon Aiyuk for one of his three touchdown passes, and San Francisco beat Tampa Bay. Purdy also threw a 4-yard TD pass to Christian Mccaffrey and a 3-yarder to George Kittle. Bills 32, Jets 6 Orchard Park, N.Y.: Josh Allen threw three TD passes and the sluggish Buffalo Bills offense responded to a change in coordinators by scoring points on six of its first eight possessions. The Bills (6-5) snapped a twogame skid and topped 25 points for the first time in seven weeks to end the team’s worst drought since a six-game run during Allen’s rookie season in 2018. Rams 17, Seahawks 16 Inglewood, Calif.: Lucas Havrisik made a 22-yard field goal for Los Angeles with 1:31 to play, and Jason Myers missed a 55-yard attempt for Seattle with 3 seconds left. Matthew Stafford passed for 190 yards in his return from injury and led two scoring drives in the comeback by the Rams (4-6), who snapped a three-game losing streak.
