NFL Roundup: Eagles win late as Pats crushes Jets hearts with last minute TD | NFL

Jalen Hurts ran for an eight-yard touchdown with 1:20 left, and the Philadelphia Eagles got past the Indianapolis Colts 17-16 on Sunday.

After their first loss of the season, the Eagles (9-1) trailed 13-3 in the fourth quarter. Hurts threw for a touchdown early in the period to get Philly within three.

The third-year quarterback was 18-of-25 with 190 yards through the air and rushed 16 times for 86 yards as the Eagles won their seventh straight game.

Indianapolis (4-6-1) never trailed until Hurts’ scoring run. Interim coach Jeff tied his record at 1-1 on Saturday since taking over from fired Frank Reich.

Hurts did it all, routinely burning the Colts for big runs. And on third and the goal from the eight-yard line, he found a seam in the middle and sprinted over the goal line for the tiebreaker score. Indy had a chance for a game-winning drive, but it stalled before the Colts could reach center field and they turned it around on downs.

New York Jets 3–10 New England Patriots

Marcus Jones returned 84 yards for a touchdown with five seconds left and the New England Patriots outlasted the stunned New York Jets.

It was the third consecutive win for the Patriots (6-4) and their 14th consecutive victory over New York. They also denied the Jets (6-4) the chance to move into first place in the AFC East for the first time since 2010 this late in the season. Instead, New York fell to last place. The Jets have not won in Foxborough since the 2010 playoffs when they knocked out the Patriots in the divisional round.

The Patriots moved the ball well at times, with Mac Jones completing 23 of 27 passes for 246 yards. But they were only 4 of 15 in third and only had one field goal, with Nick Folk missing two tries despite getting into the Jets 30 three times. New York sacked Jones six times, but only managed 103 yards on offense. Zach Wilson was just 9 of 22 for 77 yards and Braden Mann punted 10 times.

Cleveland Browns 23-31 Buffalo Bills

Josh Allen threw a five-yard go-ahead touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs late in the first half and Buffalo defeated the Cleveland Browns after the NFL moved the Bills’ home game to Detroit due to several feet of snow in western New York.

The Bills (7-3) avoided a third consecutive halftime lead by scoring on all five of their possessions in the second half and protecting the ball better. Cleveland (3-7) rallied within eight points and caused an outside kick in the final seconds that Bills receiver Gabe Davis was unable to grab and running back Taiwan Jones hit out of bounds.

Detroit Lions 31-18 New York Giants

Jamaal Williams ran for a career-high three touchdowns and the Detroit Lions stunned the New York Giants, with consecutive wins on the road and their first three-game winning streak since November 2017.

The Lions’ much-maligned run defense stopped NFL leading rusher Saquon Barkley and forced three turnovers on a cold, blustery afternoon at MetLife Stadium. Defensive end Aidan Hutchinson, the No. 2 overall draft pick in April, intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble to help set up 14 points. Jared Goff and the Lions’ offense had no turnovers for the second game in a row.

Carolina Panthers 3-13 Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson ran for a one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, and the Baltimore Ravens forced three late Carolina turnovers as they clinched the win. The AFC North-leading Ravens (7-3) won their fourth consecutive game despite being stuck in neutral offensively for much of the game. Jackson threw for 209 yards with an interception and Demarcus Robinson caught nine passes for 128 yards, but that was about all that worked offensively for both teams on a chilly, windy day in Baltimore.

Chicago carries the Atlanta Falcons 24-27

Younghoe Koo’s 53-yard field goal gave Atlanta the lead with less than two minutes to play and the Falcons won another impressive game over Chicago’s Justin Fields.

Fields ran for 85 yards with a touchdown, but the Bears suffered their fourth straight loss. Chicago (3-8) has lost six of seven. Marcus Mariota ran and threw for touchdowns for Atlanta (5-6), coming within half a game of NFC-leading Tampa Bay during the Buccaneers’ bye week.

Los Angeles Rams 20-27 New Orleans Saints

Andy Dalton passed for three touchdowns, Mathew Stafford left the field for a second-half concussion, and the New Orleans Saints defeated the faltering Los Angeles Rams.

Stafford’s exit from the game came two days after he was cleared to return from the NFL’s concussion protocol. He appeared to hit his head on the Superdome turf during possession in the third quarter and was subsequently dismissed before walking through the tunnel to the locker room. The defending champion Rams (3-7) has now lost four times in a row.

Washington Commanders 23–10 Houston Texans

Taylor Heinicke threw for 191 yards, Kendall Fuller returned an interception for a touchdown, and the Washington Commanders rolled to victory over the hapless Houston Texans.

Heinicke, who started a fifth straight game for the injured Carson Wentz, had another solid performance to help the Commanders (6-5) build on last week’s victory over Philadelphia and win their fifth of six. Davis Mills threw two interceptions and Houston amassed a season-lowest 148 yards of offense as the Texans (1-8-1) lost their fifth straight game to remain the NFL’s only one-win team.
