NFL roundup: Seahawks end Eagles’ win streak

SEATTLE — Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes, and the Seattle defense held the league’s No. 1 offense to a season low in points as the Seahawks beat the Philadelphia Eagles 24-10 on Sunday night.

The Seahawks (8-4) ended the Eagles’ winning streak at nine games and put themselves back into playoff position, thanks to the Atlanta Falcons’ loss to the Minnesota Vikings earlier in the day.

The Eagles (10-2) dropped into a dead heat with the Vikings (10-2) for the top seed in the NFC.

Wilson outdueled Carson Wentz, who had his streak of games with multiple touchdown passes stopped at seven. Wentz completed 29 of 45 throws for 348 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. Wilson hit 20 of 31 for 227 yards and threw scoring passes to Jimmy Graham, Tyler Lockett and J.D. McKissic.

Patriots 23, Bills 3
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Tom Brady completed 21 of 30 passes for 258 yards en route to his 27th career victory over Buffalo as New England earned its eighth straight victory.
Brady, whose lone blip on the day was an interception, broke Brett Favre’s NFL record for most wins against a single opponent. Brady has won 14 of those games in Buffalo. The Patriots (10-2) didn’t need Brady to be at his best to reach double-digit victories for the 15th straight season. They gained 191 of their 435 yards on the ground against the Bills (6-6).
New England’s Rex Burkhead rushed for 78 yards and two touchdowns and Dion Lewis rushed for 92 yards. Tight end Rob Gronkowski, whose late hit on Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White with the game well in hand in the fourth quarter may net him a fine or suspension, caught nine passes for 147 yards.

Vikings 14, Falcons 9
ATLANTA — Case Keenum threw two short touchdown passes and Minnesota extended its winning streak to eight games by holding Atlanta to three field goals.
Keenum, the NFC Player of the Month for November, completed 25 of 30 passes for 227 yards as the Vikings improved to 10-2 and all but locked up first place in the NFC North.
Julio Jones, blanked by cornerback Xavier Rhodes, had just two catches for 24 yards a week after torching Tampa Bay for 253 yards and two touchdowns on 12 catches. The Falcons fell to 7-5.

49ers 15, Bears 14
CHICAGO — Robbie Gould made all five of his field-goal attempts, including a go-ahead kick with four seconds to go, and San Francisco rallied for a win over Chicago.
Jimmy Garoppolo completed 26 of 37 passes for 293 yards in his first start with the 49ers. He engineered a 14-play, 86-yard scoring drive in the final six minutes to set up Gould’s final field goal.
San Francisco (2-10) won for the second time in the past three games and earned its first road victory of the season. Chicago (3-9) lost its fifth straight game and dropped to 2-5 at home.

Jaguars 30, Colts 10
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Blake Bortles threw for 309 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions as Jacksonville defeated Indianapolis.
The Jaguars (8-4) remain tied for first place in the AFC South with Tennessee, rebounding well from a disappointing 27-24 loss at Arizona last week. Jacksonville has also locked in its first non-losing season since 2010 and will have four chances to achieve its first winning season in a decade.
Bortles led the Jaguars to a sweep over the Colts (3-9), completing 26 of 35 passes and elevating his play on third down. The Jaguars converted nine times in 15 situations.

Ravens 44, Lions 20
BALTIMORE — Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes and Alex Collins ran for a pair of scores to lead Baltimore past Detroit.
Baltimore improved to 7-5 and boosted its chances for a spot in the postseason. The Lions, meanwhile, fell to 6-6 and will need some help to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Detroit trailed 20-0 at the half, but Matthew Stafford completed 20 consecutive passes to help the Lions get back in the game.

Packers 26, Buccaneers 20 (OT)
GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Jones rushed for a 20-yard touchdown with 5:59 remaining in overtime as Green Bay defeated Tampa Bay.
Green Bay (6-6) won the overtime coin toss and won the game on the first carry of the contest for Jones, who missed the previous two games with a knee injury. He was stacked up at the line of scrimmage, bounced left, got a block from receiver Jordy Nelson and dived into the end zone.
Tampa Bay fell to 4-8 as quarterback Jameis Winston returned after missing the past three games with a shoulder injury. He passed for 270 yards and two touchdowns, and running back Peyton Barber ran for 102 yards.

Dolphins 35, Broncos 9
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla.– Miami’s swarming defense held Denver out of the end zone and scored twice to lift the Dolphins to a win over Denver.
Miami (5-7) snapped a five-game losing streak that dated back to Halloween weekend in a 31-28 home win over the New York Jets. Kenyan Drake ran for 120 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries.
Denver (3-9) dropped its eighth straight contest and hasn’t been victorious since a 16-10 home win over Oakland on Oct. 1.

Jets 38, Chiefs 31
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Josh McCown plunged in from a yard out for the go-ahead touchdown with 2:15 to play as New York outlasted Kansas City.
Kansas City (6-6) has now lost six of seven, including four straight, to fall into a three-way tie for first place in the AFC West with the Raiders and the Chargers. The Jets (5-7) ended a stretch of five losses in six games with a weird finish.
Bennie Logan had a personal foul penalty on a field-goal attempt with 3:58 to play to give the Jets a first down, and Steven Nelson had a holding penalty on third down with 2:39 left to give the Jets another first down. Finally, after 10 goal-to-goal plays, McCown found the end zone to give New York the lead.

Titans 24, Texans 13
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Rallying from an early 10-0 deficit Sunday, Tennessee dumped Houston to keep pace with Jacksonville atop the AFC South.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota accounted for both Tennessee touchdowns, snapping a tie with three seconds left in the third quarter when he found tight end Delanie Walker for a 24-yard scoring strike over the middle.
That completed an 80-yard drive that saw the Titans (8-4) convert a fourth-and-1 at the Houston 27 on a 3-yard run by Derrick Henry right before Mariota’s touchdown pass. The Texans fell to 4-8.

Saints 31, Panthers 21
NEW ORLEANS — Rookie running back Alvin Kamara compiled 126 offensive yards and scored two touchdowns to power New Orleans to victory over Carolina. Kamara scored on runs of 2 and 20 yards.
The win lifted the Saints (9-3) into sole possession of first place in the NFC South over the Panthers (8-4), using a powerful running game to gain 148 yards against the league’s third-best rushing defense. The Panthers, who had won four straight and seven of their past eight games, entered the game allowing just 83.2 rushing yards per game.
Drew Brees threw for 269 yards and a score on 25-of-34 passing. Cam Newton completed 17 of 27 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns for Carolina.

Chargers 19, Browns 10
CARSON, Calif. — New kicker Travis Coons tied a career high with four field goals, and Keenan Allen added a touchdown catch as Los Angeles kept Cleveland winless.
Coons, who was signed to replace an injured Nick Novak (back/injured reserve) on Saturday, missed his initial attempt and then rattled off four consecutive successful kicks.
The Browns (0-12) lost their 27th game in their past 28 contests. Their lone win over that span came against the Chargers last year. The Chargers (6-6) won for the sixth time in eight games after an 0-4 start.

Rams 32, Cardinals 16
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Jared Goff passed for two touchdowns, linebacker Alec Ogletree returned an interception for a score and Los Angeles pinned a loss on Arizona.
With their sixth victory in seven games, the Rams (9-3) strengthened their hold on first place in the NFC West and all but assured the Cardinals (5-7) of missing the playoffs for a second consecutive season.
Goff threw a 1-yard touchdown to tight end Gerald Everett and an 11-yarder to Sammy Watkins, giving the second-year quarterback 11 touchdown passes in his last five games. Goff was 21 of 31 for 220 yards and was intercepted once.

Quarterback Geno Smith started in place of Eli Manning and completed 21 of 34 passes for 212 yards and a touchdown for the Giants (2-10). Manning’s streak of consecutive regular-season starts ended at 210. Among NFL quarterbacks, only Brett Favre owns a longer streak at 297
