Seahawks 23, Giants 0

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Richard Sherman had two interceptions; Marshawn Lynch scored on a twisting, triple-effort 2-yard run; and Steven Hauschka kicked three field goals as Seattle manhandled New York for its sixth road win.

Should the Seahawks return to New Jersey this season, it would be for the Super Bowl.

Russell Wilson toyed with the Giants defense, running for 50 yards and throwing for 206 yards and a touchdown before sitting out the last few minutes. Wilson, who was selected this week by the Texas Rangers in baseball's Rule 5 draft, has 23 wins, the most for a quarterback in his first two seasons in the Super Bowl era. He has thrown 50 touchdown passes in his short pro career.

The Seahawks (12-2) are closing in on the NFC West title and their best overall record - they went 13-3 in 2005 before losing to Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl.

Eli Manning was picked off a career-worst five times, with Byron Maxwell also getting two. The Giants (5-9) have their first losing record since 2004, and lost top receiver Victor Cruz to a concussion in the fourth quarter. Cruz is 2 yards short of his third straight 1,000-yard season.

Chiefs 56, Raiders 31

OAKLAND, Calif. - Jamaal Charles carried Kansas City straight into the playoffs with a record day as Andy Reid's Chiefs (11-3) demolished Oakland (4-10) to clinch at least a wild-card spot.

Charles had five touchdowns and gained 215 yards from scrimmage. Though he only rushed for 20 yards in eight carries, Charles caught eight passes for 195 yards and four touchdowns in the third-most productive receiving day by a running back since the 1970 merger.

Charles also joined Shaun Alexander, Jerry Rice, and Clinton Portis as the only players since the merger to score five TDs and gain at least 200 yards from scrimmage in a game.

Alex Smith threw for five TDs, going 17 for 20 for 287 yards to make K.C. just the fourth team ever to make the playoffs a year after losing at least 14 games.

Oakland's Matt McGloin threw four interceptions and lost a fumble while sharing time with Terrelle Pryor as the Raiders allowed the most points in franchise history.

Falcons 27, Redskins 26

ATLANTA - Desmond Trufant deflected Kirk Cousins' pass on a potential winning two-point conversion with 18 seconds remaining, and Atlanta got by Washington.

The Falcons (4-10) scored 20 points off seven Washington turnovers. The Redskins (3-11) tied a team record with five lost fumbles.

Cousins passed for 381 yards and three touchdowns, but had three turnovers in his first start of the season after coach Mike Shanahan decided to bench starter Robert Griffin III. Griffin watched from the sideline.

Colts 25, Texans 3

INDIANAPOLIS - Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes, and Robert Mathis broke Indianapolis' single-season and career sacks records by forcing a second-half safety to lead the Colts (9-5) past Houston (2-12).

Luck finished 19 of 32 for 180 yards with one interception and needed only two quarters to put up 20 points, four short of Indy's combined first-half point total from the previous six games.

Mathis, the NFL sacks leader, now has 161/2 this season and 108 in his career, breaking the franchise records held by longtime teammate and close friend Dwight Freeney.

Bills 27, Jaguars 20

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - EJ Manuel threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, leading Buffalo (5-9) to victory over Jacksonville (4-10).

Manuel, a former Florida State star, didn't do anything spectacular, just dinking and dunking the Jaguars for 193 yards. He also ran for 37 yards, including an 8-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Manuel completed 17 of 24 passes.

Manuel sealed the win with a 1-yard TD pass to Frank Summers. With it, Manuel set the franchise's rookie record for touchdown passes with 11.

49ers 33, Buccaneers 14

TAMPA, Fla. - Vernon Davis caught a touchdown pass for the fifth straight game, and Michael Crabtree scored his first TD since returning from injury to help San Francisco beat Tampa Bay (4-10).

The victory was the fourth straight for Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers (10-4), who pulled away for good with a 10-minute, fourth-quarter drive that produced a field goal. Kendall Hunter put it well out of reach, scooping up a fumble on the ensuing kickoff and diving 2 yards into the end zone for a touchdown.

Panthers 30, Jets 20

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Cam Newton threw for 273 yards and a touchdown, Captain Munnerlyn had two sacks and returned an interception for a score, and Carolina (10-4) beat New York (6-8).

If Carolina wins its final two games, it will clinch the division and the first-round bye. The Panthers haven't been to the postseason since 2008.

Carolina's defense came up big, sacking Jets rookie QB Geno Smith four times. Munnerlyn intercepted Smith in the fourth quarter and returned it 42 yards for a TD to seal it.
