Texans 30, Browns 12
Both Arian Foster and Ben Tate ran for 100+ yards and the Texans held their opponent to under total yards for the third straight game. At 6-3, Houston is 3 games over .500 for the first time in franchise history.
Dolphins 31, Chiefs 3
Miami picked up its first win in spectacular fashion on the road, dominating the Chiefs on the scoreboard if not the stat sheet. Matt Moore threw three TDs, Reggie Bush ran for 92 yards, and Brandon Marshall caught 8 balls for 106 yards and a touch as well. The Dolphins ran away with the game despite holding the ball for nearly ten fewer minutes and outgaining Kansas City by only 8 yards.
Falcons 31, Colts 7
Atlanta ran its winning streak to 3 games, outgaining the lowly Colts 432 yards to 186 and controlling the ball for nearly 38 minutes. Matt Ryan threw 3 TDs and a pick.
Cowboys 23, Seahawks 13
The Cowboys bounced back from their embarassing Sunday Night loss in Philly, picking off Seattle QB Tavaris Jackson three times, and getting an error free game from their own Tony Romo. Rookie sensation DeMarco Murray had another excellent game, averaging 6.3 yards on 22 carries for a total of 139.
Jets 27, Bills 11
Rex Ryan and crew reasserted their place in the upper echelon of the AFC East in a dominating road win over surprising Buffalo. The Jets carved up the Bills in the first half but were unable to convert due to two Mark Sanchez picks; in the second they completed their drives, and dominated the time of possession battle by nearly 16 minutes. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for just 191 yards and had two bad interceptions.
49ers 19, Redskins 11
The Redskins finally scored a touchdown but couldn't break their four game losing streak. Washington ended a 7-quarter touchdown drought in the 4th, but the red hot 49ers had already salted the game away at that point on the strength of yet another 100-yard Frank Gore performance and a solid if unspectacular game from Alex Smith.
Saints 27, Bucs 16
New Orleans held off a late charge from Tampa to secure a 1.5 game lead in the NFC South. Drew Brees threw for two scores and the New Orleans offense tallied 453 net yards.
