Justin Tucker drilled a 49-yard field goal on the final play of the game Sunday afternoon, giving the Baltimore Ravens a 20-17 home victory for their eighth straight win.

Tucker's successful kick was his second of the day and his 38th straight in
the fourth quarter of games in his career.

The Ravens (10-2) covered 34 yards in 12 plays to kill the final 6:28 before
the winning field goal. Lamar Jackson kept the drive alive with a 3-yard sneak
on fourth-and-1 at Baltimore's 44.

The winning drive began after the 49ers failed on a fourth-and-1 at the
Baltimore 35, when Jimmy Garoppolo had a pass deflected at the line of
scrimmage. San Francisco (10-2) lost for the second time in its last four
games after an 8-0 start.

Texans 28, Patriots 22

Deshaun Watson passed for three touchdowns and added a receiving touchdown as
host Houston defeated New England, giving the Texans their first victory over
the Patriots since Week 17 of the 2009 season.

The Texans (8-4) maintained their one-game lead in the AFC South and handed
the Patriots their second loss in 12 games this season. New England had been
10-1 all-time against Houston, including postseason play, with five wins over
the previous four seasons.

Watson, who finished 18 of 25 for 234 yards, became the first quarterback to
throw two scoring passes against the Patriots this season. Patriots
quarterback Tom Brady completed 24 of 47 passes for 326 yards and three
touchdowns -- two in the final four minutes as New England mounted a late
charge that fell one drive short.

Chiefs 40, Raiders 9

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes passed for just 175 yards in windy conditions, but
host Kansas City relied on a stubborn defense to stomp Oakland.

The victory widened the advantage the Chiefs (8-4) enjoy in the AFC West, as
the second-place Raiders fell to 6-6. Quarterback Derek Carr managed just 222
yards passing for the Raiders, who suffered consecutive 30-point losses for
the second time in franchise history and the first since 1961. They fell 34-3
last week to the New York Jets.

The sub-200 yard performance was the second straight for Mahomes, who went 15
of 29 with a touchdown. The need for offensive production was minimized by
three takeaways generated by Kansas City, including an interception returned
for a touchdown by rookie safety Juan Thornhill.

Packers 31, Giants 13

Green Bay rebounded from an awful loss to the San Francisco 49ers and handed
New York its eighth consecutive loss in East Rutherford, N.J.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, coming off one of the worst games of his
career, threw four touchdown passes. Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones,
on the other hand, tossed three interceptions.

Jones, the sixth pick of the draft, won his first two starts in place of Eli
Manning but has dropped eight straight. After throwing 11 touchdown passes vs.
one interception in his last four starts, Jones was back to his error-prone
self. While he didn't add to his league-worst figures of 14 fumbles and 10
lost fumbles, he threw interceptions to cornerback Kevin King, safety Darnell
Savage and slot Tramon Williams.

Bengals 22, Jets 6

Cincinnati earned its first win of the season as Andy Dalton returned to the
starting lineup and threw for 243 yards and one touchdown in a victory over
visiting New York.

The win ended the longest season-opening losing streak in franchise history
for the Bengals (1-11) and ensured they would not join the 2008 Detroit Lions
and 2017 Cleveland Browns as the only teams to go winless over a 16-game

The Jets (4-8) not only had a three-game winning streak snapped but also made
the wrong kind of history Sunday, when they became the first NFL team to lose
twice to teams that were 0-7 or worse entering the game. The Miami Dolphins
were 0-7 before beating New York 26-18 on Nov. 3.

Dolphins 37, Eagles, 31

Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 365 yards and three touchdowns, and
Miami scored 23 consecutive points to defeat visiting Philadelphia.

Fitzpatrick completed 27 of 39 passes and rallied the Dolphins (3-9) from a
28-14 deficit. Wide receiver DeVante Parker had seven catches for a
career-high 159 yards and two scores.

Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz was 28 of 46 for 310 yards and three
touchdowns, but the Eagles dropped their third in a row and fell to 5-7.

Steelers 20, Browns 13

After a slow start, quarterback Devlin "Duck" Hodges, and Pittsburgh came on
to beat visiting Cleveland.

Hodges, an undrafted third-stringer who was given the start over Mason
Rudolph, was 14-of-21 passing for 212 yards, an interception and a touchdown
to James Washington (four catches, 111 yards) as Pittsburgh (7-5) erased a
10-0 deficit. Benny Snell added a touchdown run.

Cleveland's Baker Mayfield passed for 196 yards, with a touchdown to Kareem
Hunt and an interception. He was sacked five times.

Titans 31, Colts 17

Tye Smith returned a blocked field goal 63 yards to snap a fourth-quarter tie,
and Ryan Tannehill added his second touchdown pass two minutes later, as
visiting Tennessee rallied for a win over Indianapolis.

The Titans (7-5) won for the fifth time in six games, avenging a September
home loss to the Colts (6-6), and stayed within a game of Houston for first
place in the AFC South.

With the game tied at 17, Adam Vinatieri tried a 46-yard field goal to put
Indianapolis ahead. But Dane Cruickshank surged through the right side to
snuff the kick, and Smith sprinted untouched to the end zone with 5:02 left.
It was the second field-goal attempt blocked by Tennessee in the game.

Rams 34, Cardinals 7

Jared Goff threw for 424 yards and connected on his first touchdown pass in
over a month, as visiting Los Angeles boosted its shrinking playoff hopes by
rolling to a victory over Arizona.

Goff threw two touchdowns on the day, his first scoring strikes since Oct. 27
in a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in London. Tight end Tyler Higbee and
wide receiver Cooper Kupp caught scoring passes as the Rams (7-5) rebounded
from a demoralizing 45-6 defeat to the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.

Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray was 19 of 34 for 163 yards, was
sacked six times and threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown
by Rams rookie safety Taylor Rapp. The Cardinals (3-8-1) were held to 63 total
yards in the first half and 198 in the game while losing for the fifth
consecutive time.

Broncos 23, Chargers 20

Brandon McManus kicked a game-winning 53-yard field goal as time expired, and
rookie quarterback Drew Lock passed for two touchdowns in his NFL debut to
lift host Denver to a victory against Los Angeles.

The Broncos (4-8) snapped a two-game losing streak and swept the season
series, while the Chargers (4-8) lost their third straight.

McManus' field goal followed a 37-yard pass interference penalty against the
Chargers on a play that began with just nine seconds remaining. It was the
third field goal in the game's final 4:26.

Buccaneers 28, Jaguars 11

Linebacker Devin White intercepted a pass to set up a score and then returned
a fumble for a touchdown, as visiting Tampa Bay built a 25-point halftime lead
and held off Gardner Minshew-led Jacksonville.

Rookie quarterback Minshew replaced Nick Foles at the start of the second
half, with the Jaguars down 25-0. Foles was 7 of 14 for 93 yards with one
interception and two lost fumbles, with the three turnovers leading to 22
Buccaneers points.

Jameis Winston was 21 of 33 for 268 yards for the Bucs (5-7). Minshew finished
16 of 27 for 147 yards, one TD and one interception for the Jaguars (4-8), who
were penalized 16 times for 125 yards.

Redskins 29, Panthers 21

Derrius Guice rushed for two touchdowns, and Washington came up with a late
goal-line stand in a victory against host Carolina in Charlotte, N.C.

The Redskins (3-9) won for the second week in a row, and they didn't allow a
point for a 48-minute stretch until the game's final two minutes. Guice gained
129 yards on 10 carries. Teammate Adrian Peterson picked up 99 rushing yards
on 13 attempts, including a 12-yard touchdown run with 4:26 to play.

Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen scrambled 17 yards for a touchdown with 1:51
remaining on a drive extended because of a fourth-down conversion. Carolina
recovered the ensuing onside kick and reached the Washington 1 for a first
down before running back Christian McCaffrey lost yards on consecutive plays,
followed by an incomplete pass and a sack.
