* VIKINGS 38, BILLS 14: At Minneapolis, Tarvaris Jackson came off the bench for an injured Brett Favre and threw for 187 yards and two touchdowns, and Minnesota's defense dominated Buffalo (2-10). Adrian Peterson rushed for 107 yards and three TDs on a gimpy right ankle for the Vikings (5-7), who are 2-0 under interim head coach Leslie Frazier. Favre said he sprained his throwing shoulder, which occurred on the first series of the game. Jackson led the Vikings to 31 first-half points. But he also threw three interceptions, including one that was returned 40 yards for a TD.
* SAINTS 34, BENGALS 30: At Cincinnati, Drew Brees threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Marques Colston with 31 seconds left, rallying New Orleans to its fifth straight victory. On fourth-and-2 from the Cincinnati 7, the Saints (9-3) lined up and tried to draw the Bengals offsides. It worked. Lineman Pat Sims jumped, giving the Saints a first down. Brees threw his second TD pass on the next play.
* JAGUARS 17, TITANS 6: At Nashville, Tenn., Maurice Jones-Drew ran for a career-best 186 yards and Rashad Jennings and David Garrard each ran for a touchdown for Jacksonville. The win allowed the Jaguars (7-5) to take over first place in the AFC South, a game ahead of the Indianapolis Colts, who lost to the Dallas Cowboys in overtime (see Page 86).
Tennessee (5-7) suffered its fifth straight loss.
* FALCONS 28, BUCS 24: At Tampa, Eric Weems scored on a 102-yard kickoff return and Matt Ryan threw a 9-yard TD pass to Michael Jenkins as Atlanta (10-2) rallied from 10 down for its sixth straight victory. Ryan led his sixth fourth-quarter comeback of the season for the NFC South leaders.
Rookie LeGarrette Blount rushed for 103 yards for Tampa Bay (7-5), which fell to 0-5 against teams with winning records.
* CHIEFS 10, BRONCOS 6: At Kansas City, Jamaal Charles rushed for 116 yards and Matt Cassel threw a 3-yard pass to Leonard Pope for the only TD as Kansas City avenged a 20-point loss to Denver 3 weeks ago. The Chiefs (8-4) stayed unbeaten at home and remained on top of the AFC West.
Knowshon Moreno rushed for 161 yards for the Broncos (3-9).
* SEAHAWKS 31, PANTHERS 14: At Seattle, Marshawn Lynch rushed for three TDs, Lofa Tatupu returned an interception 26 yards and Seattle used a 21-point third quarter to rally past Carolina (1-11). Seattle (6-6) avoided an embarrassing loss to stay even with St. Louis atop the NFC West.
* RAMS 19, CARDINALS 6: At Glendale, Ariz., Steven Jackson ran for 102 yards, including 27 on the game's lone touchdown, and Josh Brown kicked four field goals as St. Louis (6-6) won consecutive road games for the first time in more than 3 years. The Rams also ended an eight-game losing streak against Arizona (3-9), which dropped its seventh in a row.
* RAIDERS 28, CHARGERS 13: At San Diego, Jason Campbell ran for one TD and threw for another, and Darren McFadden ran for 97 yards and a TD for Oakland (6-6). The loss puts a serious crimp in the playoff hopes for the four-time defending AFC West champion Chargers (6-6), who trail the Chiefs by two games with four to play.
* PACKERS 34, 49ERS 16: At Green Bay, Donald Driver's catch-and- run for a 61-yard TD broke open a tight game in the third quarter. Greg Jennings caught six passes from Aaron Rodgers for 122 yards and a pair of TDs for the Packers (8-4). The 49ers fell to 4-8.
* BEARS 24, LIONS 20: At Detroit, Jay Cutler threw a go-ahead TD pass to Brandon Manumaleuna one play after a questionable call midway through the fourth quarter to lift Chicago. The NFC North-leading Bears (9-3) took advantage of referee Ed Hochuli flagging Ndamukong Suh for unnecessary roughness. Cutler then hit Manumaleuna on a 7-yard pass with 8:39 left. The Lions (2-10) have lost an NFL-record 19 within the division.
