Chiefs 45, Redskins 10

LANDOVER, Md. - After his team's win over Washington, Chiefs coach Andy Reid manage to mix references to Nelson Mandela and soccer champs Sporting Kansas City and compared the Chiefs' losing streak to a dog's life.

Washington's Mike Shanahan looked like a coach counting down his final days.

That was no thin line separating the winners and losers after the Chiefs (10-3) thumped the Redskins (3-10).

The Chiefs broke their three-game skid doing what they did during their 9-0 start - beat up a bad team. They scored on their first four possessions, sacked Robert Griffin III five times and Kirk Cousins once, and returned a punt and a kickoff for TDs.

Postgame, in his usual monotone, Reid went a bit off-topic.

"Sporting KC, I'm telling you - it's hard to be a champion, right? And they did it. I'm proud of those guys," he said, referring to Saturday's MLS Cup-winners. He then noted that he'd failed to mention Mandela, who died on Thursday, "but what a tribute to mankind he is."

Reid said the streak seemed "like a year - those are dog years, as you would say - each week that you have a loss."

Dolphins 34, Steelers 28

PITTSBURGH - Charles Clay caught two TD passes, including a 12-yard strike from Ryan Tannehill with 2 minutes, 53 seconds left, as Miami beat Pittsburgh in the Iron City for the first time in 23 years.

Daniel Thomas ran for 105 yards and a score. His zigzag, 55-yard burst at snowy Heinz Field set up Clay's winner. Tannehill threw for 201 yards and three TDs for the Dolphins (7-6), who won for the third time in their last four.

Ben Roethlisberger passed for 349 yards and three TDs for the Steelers (5-8).

Antonio Brown raced into the end zone after a series of laterals on the final play, but officials ruled he had stepped out of bounds.

The Steelers snapped the ball at their own 21 just before the clock hit all zeros. Emmanuel caught a short pass from Roethlisberger, starting a flurry of laterals that included getting the ball into the hands of 330-pound tackle Marcus Gilbert. Gilbert flipped it to Roethlisberger who then appeared to throw it forward to Brown.

Packers 22, Falcons 21

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Matt Flynn threw for 258 yards, and Green Bay's struggling defense forced a key fourth-quarter turnover to snap a five-game skid with a win over Atlanta (3-10).

After Mike Neal's sack forced Falcons QB Matt Ryan to fumble, defensive lineman Johnny Jolly scooped up the loose ball and celebrated with a little belly dance at chilly Lambeau Field.

Four plays later, Flynn found Andrew Quarless for a 2-yard, go-ahead score with about 12 minutes left for the Packers (6-6-1).

Buccaneers 27, Bills 6

TAMPA, Fla. - Mike Glennon threw two TD passes, and Bobby Rainey scored on an 80-yard run on the second play of the day as Tampa Bay topped Buffalo.

The Buccaneers (4-9) intercepted EJ Manuel four times en route to their fourth win in five games following an 0-8 start.

Manuel, Buffalo's first-round draft pick out of Florida State, was sacked seven times and doubled his interception total for the season.

The Bills (4-9) have lost five of six, are assured of finishing without a winning record for the ninth straight year, and also are likely to extend the NFL's longest current playoff drought to 14 consecutive seasons.

CINCINNATI - Andy Dalton threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as Cincinnati remained perfect at home with a win over Indianapolis.

The Bengals (9-4) improved to 6-0 at Paul Brown Stadium on a cold, windy day: 28 degrees at kickoff with a wind chill of 19 and light flurries.

Dalton was 24 of 35 for 275 yards without a sack or an interception.

The Colts (8-5) had another slow start in the cold, falling behind by 21-0 before Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes to get it close.

Chargers 37, Giants 14

SAN DIEGO - Philip Rivers found rookie Keenan Allen for two of his three touchdown passes, and San Diego (6-7) kept its long-shot playoff hopes alive with a win over New York.

Eli Manning was picked off twice and dropped to 0-3 against San Diego since 2004, when the Chargers selected him with the No. 1 overall draft pick and then sent him to the Giants for Rivers and extra draft picks. The Giants (5-8) were knocked out of playoff contention.

Allen had three catches to push his season total to 61, breaking LaDainian Tomlinson's team rookie record of 59 in 2001.
