Sunday's NFL results: Week 10

Monday, November 12, 2007

SAN DIEGO -- Peyton Manning was poised to turn one of his worst games into one of his most memorable. Then Adam Vinatieri missed a 29-yard field goal attempt with 1:31 left, and the Chargers (5-4) held on for a 23-21 victory Sunday night.

Manning, who set a Colts franchise record with six interceptions, had driven them to the Chargers' 12. Vinatieri, who had won two Super Bowls for New England with last-second kicks, pushed his kick just wide right.

Darren Sproles, San Diego's speedy return man, brought back the opening kickoff 89 yards for his first NFL touchdown. Then he ran back a punt 45 yards for his second score later in the first quarter.

But the Colts (7-2) scored two touchdowns and a two-point conversion in 23 seconds early in the fourth quarter to pull to 23-21.

Bills 13, Dolphins 10

MIAMI -- Winless Miami controlled the ball for nearly 37 minutes and led most of the game, but Rian Lindell kicked a 34-yard field goal with 46 seconds left and the Bills earned their fourth consecutive victory.

Buffalo scored 11 points in the final 9:46 to improve to 5-4. The Bills' winning streak is their longest since 2004.

The Dolphins fell to 0-9, extending the worst start in franchise history. Five defeats have been by three points.

Packers 34, Vikings 0

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Brett Favre passed another milestone and the Packers (8-1) roughed up rookie running back Adrian Peterson.

Favre joined Dan Marino as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for 60,000 career yards.

The Packers were leading 27-0 late in the third quarter when Peterson caught a pass from Brooks Bollinger and was tackled low by cornerback Al Harris, injuring his knee.

The Vikings fell to 3-6.

Cowboys 31, Giants 20

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Tony Romo hit Terrell Owens on two of his four touchdown passes and Dallas (8-1) opened a three-game lead in the NFC East by ending the Giants' six-game winning streak.

Romo, who was 20-of-28 for 247 yards, also threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Tony Curtis and a 20-yarder to Patrick Crayton in helping the Cowboys sweep the season-series with the Giants (6-3).

Steelers 31, Browns 28

PITTSBURGH -- Ben Roethlisberger scrambled 30 yards for a key touchdown during Pittsburgh's second-half comeback, then set up a go-ahead 2-yard TD pass to Heath Miller with an important third-down run as the Steelers rallied.

Pittsburgh (7-2) beat Cleveland (5-4) for the ninth consecutive time.

Jaguars 28, Titans 13

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Quinn Gray threw for a touchdown and Maurice Jones-Drew and Fred Taylor ran for one each.

The Jaguars (6-3) came in having lost two of three. They also wanted to amend for a season-opening loss to Tennessee in which they gave up 282 yards rushing.

Jacksonville snapped a three-game winning streak by the Titans (6-3)

Jones-Drew ran for 101 yards on 19 carries.

Eagles 33, Redskins 25

LANDOVER, Md. -- Michael Westbrook scampered for a 57-yard touchdown on a screen pass with 3:16 remaining to lift the Eagles (4-5).

Donovan McNabb completed 20 of 28 passes for 251 yards and four touchdowns. Westbrook caught two touchdown passes and ran for another score, finishing with 20 carries for 100 yards and five receptions for 83 yards.

The Redskins (5-4) let a struggling Philadelphia team reel off 20 points in the fourth quarter.

Broncos 27, Chiefs 11

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Backup Selvin Young rushed for 109 yards and the Broncos (4-5) scored two touchdowns in a 9-second span of the third quarter.

The Chiefs (4-5) replaced shaken-up, turnover-prone Damon Huard with second-year quarterback Brodie Croyle. Dwayne Bowe had nine catches for 105 yards for the Chiefs.

Falcons 20, Panthers 13

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Falcons quarterback Joey Harrington found Alge Crumpler over the middle for a 30-yard touchdown with 20 seconds left as Atlanta (3-6) won its second straight game.

The late score ruined the return of 43-year-old Vinny Testaverde, who couldn't lead the Panthers (4-5) to the end zone.

Bears 17, Raiders 6

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Rex Grossman replaced an injured Brian Griese and threw a 59-yard pass to Bernard Berrian for the go-ahead score with 3:11 remaining as the Bears (4-5) defeated the Raiders (2-7).

Cardinals 31, Lions 21

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Karlos Dansby intercepted two passes and forced a fumble to help Arizona's defense make mistake-prone Detroit (6-3) look like the lowly Lions of old.

Kurt Warner shook off an early interception to complete 26-of-36 for 259 yards and three touchdowns for Arizona (4-5).

Bengals 21, Ravens 7

BALTIMORE -- Shayne Graham kicked a team-record seven field goals as the Bengals completed a season sweep of the Ravens (4-5).

Cincinnati (3-6) owned the league's 31st-ranked defense, was tied with winless Miami for most points allowed and had not yielded fewer than 20 points in any game this season. All that changed against the Ravens (4-5), who committed six turnovers.
