Drew Brees didn't say much about the fact the Saints failed to score a touchdown for first time in his 10 years as New Orleans' QB. Said he felt like they had opportunities late in game. Said he still believes offense can bounce back from bad streak of two games because they've shown this year what they can be. But doesn't get easier with Carolina coming to town next week.

Drew Brees said the plan vs. Texans was to avoid third-and-longs, but instead they were in third-and-long all day. Blamed execution errors and said they never gave themselves a chance.

Rex Ryan says the Chiefs "started playing the safety a zillion yards deep" and that's why Sammy Watkins was held without a catch in the second half.

Jets 38, Dolphins 20 (final): The Jets live. The season still matters. They played their most complete game in nearly two months, snapping a two-game losing streak. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brandon Marshall played pitch and catch all day, and the third-down defense dominated Ryan Tannehill. This was a much-needed win for Todd Bowles, who has received criticism in recent weeks.

Carr comes through for go-ahead TD

Raiders QB Derek Carr floated the ball perfectly to Seth Roberts for a 12-yard TD that gave his team a 24-21 win against the Titans.

Bengals CB Adam Jones says he definitely wasn't 100 percent today ("Maybe 65," he said). He added the two losses helped motivate him to play

The Seahawks got help in the early games with the Falcons and Bucs losing. Seattle would move into a tie with Atlanta for a wild-card spot with a win over the Steelers. The Seahawks play the Vikings, Ravens, Browns and Rams after today.

  • KC QB A. Smith: 19-30, 255 yards, 2 TD

Jackson takes his sweet time on TD catch

WASHINGTON 20, GIANTS 14 (FINAL): It's tough when you're down three offensive linemen, but Eli Manning picked a bad time to play his worst game of the season. Manning's three interceptions dug the Giants a 20-0 hole from which they could not recover, and Sunday's loss dropped them into a first-place tie with Washington at 5-6. They simply don't have enough depth or talent on their roster to win when they turn the ball over, though that Beckham kid is pretty good.

Final: Chargers 31, Jaguars 25

Dolphins aren't feeling the rush

The Dolphins have 12 rush yards today against the Jets. If they stay at that total, it will be the 3rd-fewest rush yards in a game in team history. Their nine rush attempts are currently tied for the fewest in franchise history (1986 vs Chargers).

Watt breezes through another milestone

J.J. Watt sacks Drew Brees in the third quarter to become the second fastest player to 70 career sacks, and he celebrates by hitting a mock home run in the backfield.
