Lions 26, Eagles 23 (OT)

PHILADELPHIA – Jason Hanson kicked a 45-yard field goal in overtime, and the Detroit Lions rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Philadelphia Eagles.

Falcons 23, Raiders 20 (OT)

ATLANTA – Matt Bryant kicked his second game-winning field goal in three weeks, a 55-yarder with 1 second remaining.

Ravens 31, Cowboys 29

BALTIMORE – Jacoby Jones tied an NFL record with a 108-yard kickoff return, and Baltimore won its 14th consecutive regular-season home game

Dallas recovered the onside kick, and Dan Bailey was wide left on a 51-yard field goal try with 6 seconds left.

Buccaneers 38, Chiefs 10

TAMPA, Fla. – Josh Freeman threw for 328 yards and three touchdowns, and Ronde Barber scored on a 78-yard interception return.

Browns 34, Bengals 24

CLEVELAND – Rookie Brandon Weeden threw two touchdown passes, and Cleveland snapped an 11-game losing streak that dated to last season.

Dolphins 17, Rams 14

MIAMI – Ryan Tannehill threw two touchdown passes, and Miami withstood a late rally.

Giants 26, 49ers 3

SAN FRANCISCO – Antrel Rolle intercepted two passes by Alex Smith, and Prince Amukamara picked off another for New York in a rematch of last season’s NFC championship game.
