Titans 37, Dolphins 3

MIAMI - Colin McCarthy returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown in Tennessee's pummeling of Miami.

The Titans came into the game on pace to set an NFL record for points allowed in a season, but they stymied Miami by intercepting Ryan Tannehill three times and recovering a Reggie Bush fumble to set up a touchdown.

Tennessee (4-6) rebounded from a 51-20 loss a week ago against the Bears that prompted owner Bud Adams to put the organization on notice.

For Miami (4-5), the home loss was the most lopsided since 1968.

Patriots 37, Bills 31

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Tom Brady threw for two touchdowns, and Devin McCourty intercepted a pass in the end zone as New England got by a plucky Buffalo.

The Bills (3-6) then held the Patriots to a 27-yard field goal with 2:06 remaining, and advanced to the New England 15 before Fitzpatrick's interception.

Seahawks 28, Jets 7

SEATTLE - Russell Wilson threw touchdowns of 38 yards to Golden Tate and 31 yards to Sidney Rice as Seattle sent New York to its worst start since 2007.

Wilson was harried for much of the day by the multiple looks from the 3-6 Jets defense, but the rookie responded with key throws, hitting Tate on the opening drive, then connecting with Rice early in the fourth quarter to give Seattle (6-4) a two-score advantage. Tate added a TD pass on a reverse to Rice later in the fourth quarter.

Mark Sanchez struggled in his reunion with Seattle coach Pete Carroll, his coach at Southern Cal. He threw a costly interception at the goal line in the first half, then fumbled at the Seattle 32.

49ers 24, Rams 24

SAN FRANCISCO - The game ended with the NFL's first tie in four years as both kickers missed field goals in overtime.

St. Louis' Greg Zuerlein kicked a 53-yarder, but the Rams were penalized 5 yards for delay of game. His 58-yard attempt missed wide right with 2 minutes, 42 seconds left in overtime.

San Francisco's David Akers missed wide left on a 41-yard attempt that could have sealed it for the 49ers (6-2-1), who lost quarterback Alex Smith in the first half with a concussion.

CHICAGO - Houston's Arian Foster finished with 102 yards rushing and a touchdown catch, and the defense intercepted quarterback Jay Cutler two times before knocking him out of the game with a concussion on its way to beating Chicago.

In a showdown between two of the NFL's best teams, the Texans (8-1) beat the Bears (7-2) at their own game.

The Texans came away with four takeaways, and linebacker Tim Dobbins delivered the biggest blow when he drove his helmet into Cutler late in the second quarter.

Foster was the only reliable offensive weapon on either side, particularly in the first half, when he ran for 85 yards and made a sprawling catch for a 2-yard touchdown to put Houston ahead by 10-3.

Otherwise, neither team got much going on a soggy night.
